      Welcome.

      Before you go shopping for new wheels, I suggest you purchase a set of lowering springs or cupkit first. You may end up liking your stock wheels after your car has been lowered.

      Never was a big fan of 7 slots Jason

      New guy in Lynchburg? Or some outlying wasteland? We like new people in the thread, especially if they're sassy

      Nobody likes stock wheels mike, you're the only one around here that has any

      If you mean sassy as in "An adjective, typically used to describe a playful, flirty, saucy woman, particularly in reference to her verbal remarks. Occasionally, women will be sassy in order to get a spanking for causing trouble. The best way to tell is if her eyes are bright with mischief"..then yes please. Otherwise, we already have one to many who think they are full of awesomesauce.

      I happen to like my huffs and classix'. To each their own.

      Yes to both... Im in Lynchburg, but moving our to wasteland er Madison Heights at the end of the month..

      We like new people in the thread, especially if they're sassy
      I dont know about sassy... does that mean I need to tight-roll my pants and carry a satchel?

      I can guarantee I would not like my wheels no matter what.. I hate my biolines.. I do love the classix too! Ill lower it if you guys help.. I did my Mazda 3 myself and it was a pain.. plus I need to be careful and find some lowering springs that are a: not extremely lowjust enough to look and perform better and b: still comfy ride soo as to not hear blah blah from the wife... I don't feel the stock suspension is that comfy now it feels like my mazda did lowered..

      my wheels are stocks, albeit in my opinion one of the best stock wheels ever. I'm also a big fan of huffs and fat fives.

      Only one person gets to tight roll their pants, and that's Luke.

      That Z is hideous - id rock the **** out of that coupe though, just with period correct wheels (ish)

      I guess Jason does have stock wheels, but we painted them an awesome color.

      What did Josh have on the Gti? Weren't they just eibachs? They rode pretty well and didn't look half bad.

      for rapp:
      one of the guys is the dude who was driving the bike on top gear. the other one, nick, is on the tex "Prizefighter"and posts on the moto forum. apparently he was supposed to be in top gear too but had a pretty bad injury. they use cameras mounted on RC cars and helicopters to get some great shots.

      I'm purging some of the hundreds of car magazines that I've accumulated over the years and I was wondering if any of you guys would be interested in 8+ years of Performance VW. Free for the taking just let me know if you want them.

      White Mk2 Jetta correct? There are a few years I'm not letting go (2001-03 I think) but I will look to see if I've got it. I know I did, just need to search.

      Kriszzzttatatian thinks we should get this straightened out early this year, and maybe he is right. this way everyone can ask off 8 months in advanced.

      SOWO 7 May 17-19th 2013

      last year we stayed at the Hampton inn. Its walking distance to almost everything ( a little far to walk for the actual show or things at the southernmost part of town), it was relatively quiet and the room was nice. a little pricy but 5 people made it doable. Asian and I stayed at the best western the year before. Its right next to the show. It's cheaper. The downside is there are people milling about all night and parking can be difficult (we just parked the jetta in front of the cars of some people i know and left it)

      I just checked on the Hampton Inn and the price for the room we had last year (2 double beds) if paid in advance with all taxes and fees included will be $271. We fit five guys in there with a comfy amount of room this past year.

      Edit: Just checked the Best Western and it is more expensive than that.

      Hey guys, long-time no post.

      Just wanted to say that I've been stalking you all on here lately. Seems like everyone's moved on car-wise. Me, I'm aiming to keep my slow green Jetta for life. I'm in Korea, and with the possibility of returning to the states for some time, I've started buying/gathering parts in the last month or so.

      Purchased so far:
      OEM replica HIDs
      GLI tails
      3 17x7 VW Siata wheels


      There are a few things I'd like your feedback on.

      I need 1 more wheel to complete the set. Would it be too anal to have a matching spare?)

      Suspension: nothing drastic, just to eliminate some gap. Thinking a used GLI suspension or a touring H&R cupkit. In another calendar year, I'll pack up my life yet again and move on for grad school. So I'm not sure about this. When I'd pack everything in for 600 mile undergrad move-in days, the car would appear massively lowered, but I never rubbed anything. With a lowered suspension, will the extra spring stiffness make up for the lack of travel?

      New headliner. For a long time I'd been thinking of something quilted, like:

      I've seen it a lot in taxis here, kinda looks crappy... idk. Might just go plain. Looks good in some online pics I've seen on here, but... anyone with more real-life impressions?

      There are other things, too, so next summer appears to be the summer of massive car projects. Hope to be around to share that with ya guys.

      I try to keep up with your adventures via facebook.
      those wheels look good. there is no real overly compelling reason to have a matching spare except that if you have a flat then you dont have to worry about it right away and you could include it in your tire rotation (whatever that is).

      stock wheel offsets and a gli suspension won't rub a thing unless you seriously overload the car. once in the wagon (with stock struts/weitec springs) I had a refrigerator in the back. it only rubbed over harsh bumps. I doubt you will be putting anything near the weight of my 1940s fridge in your car.

      headliner is purely subjective. the quilting could look nice but I dont have any first hand experience seeing it done in our cars. I think there are some nice synthetic suedes now that might fit the bill and be easier to work with. mine is starting to pull from the concave areas around the sunroof controls so I might start looking into this myself. word of warning, pulling that headliner out of a sedan is going to be a bitch.

      Bobby!

      I kinda like the quilted idea, could look good. Cupkit shouldn't be too bad, when the golf was weighed down, it didn't really get that much lower, so depending on where the wheels sit offset wise, you should be fine.

      Jason still has the Tdi wagon and I still have my Z and Golf, Josh also bought his tropic orange back, but everyone else has subarus

      As for wheels, you'll probably have an easier time finding someone selling a pair rather than a single, unless you find it on eBay (there's one on eBay currently for 119)

      I know it'll suck, but the headliner's a necessity... it started failing in the back and the sunvisor area.

      Actually, that guy selling on ebay is also selling on here for less. So I'll ask for the best one and clean it up. If it's too far gone, then refinish. The others I got are either brand new or like new.

      The great part is that I have time on my side. Constantly looking for the best parts/prices, no need to rush anything.

      Ah facebook... I never upload photos! Maybe once every 2-3 months I'll upload from my real camera... gotta get on that. I did a bike ride from Seoul to Busan for vacation. Lots of fun, and it was nice to see a part of the country that wasn't an overbuilt city. You never think about things like this, but I saw stars for only the second time in two years on that trip. There's so much light pollution, I can't remember even seeing a single star since I've been here. But out in the country, I saw a whole starfield. Can't believe how much I missed that; I almost went into double rainbow mode. So next time you're out at night... look up!

      First: BOBBY! I keep up with your adventures as well on FB. I agree with Jason and Jon and you won't have any rubbing problems with those wheels and a cup kit. I'd say something like an h&r kit with matched struts/springs would be a good setup. It would ride nice and be lower without going to far into the slammed spectrum. Looking forward to seeing you back.

      Kris: It's about time. Did you go with the STs?

      I see the stars all the time, stil only vaguely impressed.

      If you need a wheel refinisher I know of someone that can help you out probably. Also if you need them painted
      Carry on

      I decided to keep it cheap and go with Vogtland Springs. 50mm (1.97 in) of drop. This is what it should look like:

      I really want to save up for some wheels that will help close that gap. Maybe these:

      Get those wheels! I think that silver jetta actually looks good on the wheels it has too

      Does the back sit lower? Needs less butt sag
      Carry on
