Stoll this from the MKV forums....

FWIW, the car is about 1/2" too low in the rear. The rear wheel tuck looks a bit goofy.
Raise the front 1/2" and the rear 1" and I think you'll have a much better overall appearance.

Exactly. The similarities are uncanny! The wheels are too big, they look unnatural and the lack of spring travel will be harsh and and handling will feel a bit weird.

The wheel gaps just look off. It has to be symmetrical.
It's not lower in the back, the wheel opening in the rear is smaller. Just like it is on the MKIV, leading people to think that even ride height, front to rear, is actually higher in the front.

I guess my fiancee will be flattered you chose to post pics of her Mk5 in TCL....
FWIW - These pics were taken the day these wheels were put on, which, coincidentally, was the next day after the suspension was installed, so it wasn't fully adjusted just yet. That and a few other things have been addressed since then.
This car won't be seeing a Road Course, AutoX, or 1320 anytime soon, so she is perfectly content with her choice of wheels and suspension height.
