Always room for both of us I'm actually in the green lane area but I use allentown because it's the closest city to me & no one heard of my town. Are you moving to CA?

Some parts are trickling in. I have the bbs ch wheels on already with the ecs euro locks & I already did some smaller mods. I have two more piles like this around the house much to my wife's displeasure. I'm gonna get it on the lift in a week & will start doing werke.

X2 I hope I can get the brembo's on without a spacer? There seems to be plenty of room even with a 355mm kit. I'm still waiting on the rear rotors. I just went with adam's rotors on the rear with hawk pads & ss lines. I have a few sets of spacers laying around just in case.

I really want to get it right with this suspension. I went with a full whiteline walk & bushing kit to compliment the sway bars. I also found some beefier front end links to go with the bsh rear end links. I may even go with new control arms unibrace & a z brace for auto x.

Well alot of it was trial & error on my mkv, so since the suspensions are nearly identical I knew what worked for me on that car, but thanks anyway for the vote of confidence

Doing some sunday morning work on the gti little things only. Next weekend I'm going to try to get the brakes on & the R tails. I also will get it on the lift for the first round of suspension mods.

Big props to john@FTC5 for the sidemarkers. I also have him working on a new project for me, since these turned out so well. If the color looks a tiny bit off it's because I have a expel clear bra on the the car & the sidemarkers don't yet so it reflects the light a bit differently, but they are a dead on factory match:


Now, I'm a self admitted carbon fiber junkie & had a few real cf overlay parts made up to compliment the tid paddle extensions. It may not be to everyone's taste, but I like it. I had a ton of cf in my mkv so I'm just continuing the trend. You'll understand when you see the bay when it's done.




Now if your wondering why I didn't do my headunit it's because I'm retro fitting in a 510 so I can run the CC back up camera & that's been done too:


IMO I like the center dash overlayed in cf, but I don't think I'll do any more as I feel more would become gaudy. Especially as I do a new interior etc... Can't wait for next weekend to start knocking out some bigger mods.
