"Shades of grey" my 2011 ug build

Me & the wife put a deposit down on a 2011 4 door united grey dsg gti today, and I plan to pick it up by the end of the month. I would have gotten it today, but my wife has been looking for a cc v6 4-motion and there happened to be a certified one on the lot today & we had to jump on it. She'll pick it up on monday & this will be her 3rd dub. Gotta keep the wife happy first.


I'm coming from the mkv world & this will be my 6th euro build. I can't wait to get started. I have a plan for some unique touches, but I won't be getting as radical as my mkv. I have to keep this car in dd condition. I will be treating myself though to some bbs's. Stay tuned.

Very nice! If the wife isn't happy, nobody is happy I don't mind waiting a few more weeks.

? Go with used BBS lm's 18x8+40 18x9+42 that I'll need to use wobble bolts with or buy new BBS CH's 18x8 et50 drilled for 5x112? This will also be a daily. I'm leaning more towards the CH, but also wouldn't mind the LM's even though I'll have to eventually break them down & rebuild them.

How much are you going to save on the used wheels?

Well they both are around the same amount the used lm's or new ch's come in around the 2k mark. New lm's for me will be around 5k

That would be nice, there are no locking wobble bolts that I know of & I could have tpms put in, but it's big $. I'll figure it out. Thanks for the input

No need for TPMS for the 2011's works via the ABS modulation and you easily reset the system via a button in the glovebox. It rules...
