      It is a bit tricky, but when placing jack stands, I tend to raise the vehicle first with the scissor jack that came with the vehicle, as it takes up less room. Then I place the jack stand as close to...

      The issue with my brake lights turned out to be a code setting. I don't know how that changed, as that isn't something I would have turned off. :banghead:

      They look good! I'm guessing more comfortable than the OEM. Keep us posted. Perhaps you can turn off the seat airbags using a VAG COM. Having loose airbags under/near the seats sounds dangerous.

      The lowering looks pretty good for H&R springs and OEM struts. Actually, I replaced my rear spring with H&R. It's a much smoother ride than the other coil-over rear springs provided.

      I'm not only interested in the performance, but any change in fuel consumption.

      I'm currently averaging between 28-30mpg.

      I like the look. Simple. It may be an optical illusion, but the rims appear to be a light blue.

      What are the small circles (covers?) on the bumpers above the fog lamps. My 2.5L doesn't have those.
