      What they looked like on my car. That is actually the destroyed wheel before it was destroyed.
      It was an interesting experience doing that at 70mph on the interstate.
      I am now waiting for my JB welded coilpack to dry. 2nd coilpack on this pile, I think its time to go MSD ignition coils

      ummm yes..... derrr lol

      Good god man, is the bead of the tire the only thing holding the two halves together?

      YIKES! Thats nuts! I have seen pretty bent up rims, but never split in half one piece rims...Something like that woulda maybe bent the undercarriage!? I hit a 9 inch deep pothole going 40 mph; it bent two rims, blew the rear bearings and gouged the spindle! ...WoW...

      Nope not blood, thats what happens when you try to clean brake dust off red painted calipers with brake cleaner. No other damage was done, threw my car into a 180 though which was a little scary.
      I hit the hole going at least 70mph. It broke 2 studs off my hub that I just replaced today. I threw on a spare wheel and it drives fine!
      I think its time for some other wheels, I will replace that rim and maybe trade for something of go a different route. I am thinking Porsche D90's or something like that.

      I am certainly not happy with the new strut hats I got. I needed ones with a larger diameter to fit the springs, so I got ones from an early model Corrado VR6. It actually raised the front end up about .75". Definitely not happy!!!
      I know I know, I should've just gotten coilovers from the start.

      I drank a couple of beers, didn't do nothing to the passat, haven't worked on it in months. Been a little lazy lately, but will get back in the saddle, or underneath the car soon.

      Now you have to wire them as brake lights
      I put the front end together - bumper, headlights, front mask,
      then seafoamed the motor and drove the fück out of it,
      followed by an oil change.
