Thanks for the kind words everyone! Ive been weighing my options on a bigger turbo setup in the near future so it may not be as low anymore. Love the look though so who knows what I'll decide...

Hatch trim can be found at deutscheautoparts.com, they seem to have the best prices on oem parts

how are those broadway coils? I am looking to change my setup and they look like they have some quality pieces. I was just wondering how it rides and if its comfortable enough for daily driving?

I love the Broadways, seriously doubt any other coils are as comfy when you're that low. Custom spring rates, front camber plates, made in the US. Even if I went for a more functional setup I'd still go the fortune auto route. This is my daily and constantly have passengers telling me their surprised how smooth the ride is.

thanks for the response man, the coils definitely look like great quality and it looks like they really back their product.

Amazing ride dude, I got a question about your coilovers though. How'd they hold up over the winter living in NY? I'm really thinking about going with a set of broadways on my Tiguan soon but I'm torn between going with them or different stainless brand seeing as it is gonna get driven in the snow.

They held up as I expected them to, no hiccups whatsoever. I drove the car for the beginning months of winter then due to some family stuff I was driving my mom's infiniti m for the remainder of the snow and salt season. No signs of corrosion or anything, the way Broadway's are built the threads go into a sleeve with a mount going to the lower control arm so no salt or dirt has a chance of messing with the threads. Zero complaints
