On my way to work this morning my tires sounded a bit "odd" as I drove along Water St. I thought nothing of it until I was walking towards the elevator in the parking garage and I noticed that my passenger side rear tire was flat.
I have to say that the VW flat kit is VERY well designed. I have changed a tire on this car in the past but the kit was still impressive. This time around it took me only 7 minutes to change the tire from the time I popped my trunk to the time I was driving away on my full sized spare. I realize that the only kit I can compare it to is the one that came with my old 1984 Mustang, but nonetheless I was impressed. The spare tire has the same tire as the rest of the 4 wheels, so I don't have to drive around on a doughnut, the jack is easy to position, and you don't ever have to go under the car.
I realize this isn't the most interesting news you've probably read, but it saved me a lot of hassle after work today so I'm happy.
