The shop is Mack's auto body.

I won't know about the wheels/coils etc until I know what's happening to my car. I looked at the estimate the adjuster wrote up and it was way off. Had many things missing, and I haven't yet heard what the dealership determined, so all and all I'm getting a bit frustrated.

Wheel and tire setup was $1400, if I sold em I'd guess around $900. I bought the wheels in July, and they're near flawless, just one has a half cm scuff, and tires are have about 12k miles, but most of that was driving to Cali and back. Coils are $1700 new, and supposedly will require a rebuild ($600 for all 4) at 60k miles (30k on em now). Would probably look at $700 or so for those, but would have to look at em once they're off the vehicle. They looked pretty solid (corrosion on the hardware, but not the coils) when I had it on the lift a few times in Cali.

I just want to know if I should be looking at new parts or a new car right now. Still, if I could swing it I would LOVE to build an RSTi. I just can't go a month without a vehicle, or know of a place to store one. Maybe if I could work something out with my shop supervisor back in SF. I understand he has a large garage. Maybe I could convince him to help me with the swap.... I might be on to something here.
