      That black EOS is amazing! I think I will look into moving my tags down to the grill. It is just too bad that The holder put holes in the chrome.

      I read somewhere you can get screws with chrome heads if you want to move your plate.
      I've not looked for them, but if you find them and move your plate, please let us know and tell us how you re-fastened the plate when you lowered it.

      Anyone yet move the plate to the grill? I wanted to know what they did to secure it.

      You can get those caps off http://www.ecstuning.com. Here is the link for more info http://www.ecstuning.com/stage...=6869

      Hey all. I am in the process of doing my mods, but thought I'd do a few pics to show what I got so far (not a lot -but takes time).

      Hi Guys

      Well I have had my coilovers fitted along with Red Samco hoses and a Forge recirculating valve.

      I have also had ultra bright bulbs fitted.

      They could not fit the carbon engine cover as it was not compatabile with the Carbonio air intake. I am going to take my engine cover to a specialist and have a custom one made.

      Next on the list are some 19" rims, im going for BBS and 235/35/19 tyres, im going to follow that up with the ABT boot spoiler. I cant make my mind up on the exhaust, either ABT or go for a custom power flow. Anyone got any ideas?

      To finish im going for a window tint. I then may go back to the engine and go further.


      I hope you like what ive done so far.

      Regards

      Rob

      Really nice car!! I generally don't like too many mods but I definitely like yours!!

    12. 07-29-2008 02:42 PM #82
      Going back to VW,
      Did you have your wheels painted to match or just pick a set that was a close?

    13. 07-30-2008 09:00 AM #83
      Okay,

      I want to customize my EOS, but really do not want to void my warranty on the engine. I thought about lowering the EOS, but it rides so smooth I decided against it.

      Anyone have other suggestions that will NOT void the warranty that I can add to my EOS.

      1. SmartTop module
      2. Body Kit (Looking at the Rieger kit)


    14. 07-30-2008 12:40 PM #84
      Most people comment on how well the car rides AFTER installing H&R Sport Springs. It still lowers the car about 1.25" but doesn't change ride quality much while stiffens things up in the corners.

      At Kevin's suggestion, I'm going to throw these in the proper thread.

      here are a couple of pics of a very slight mod to the front grille


    17. 08-09-2008 03:56 AM #87
      Does anyone know what wheels those are on the Caractere Eos?

    18. 08-09-2008 04:01 AM #88
      Did you do the mods yourself? I just picked up my Eos today! I eager to start some mods!

    19. 08-09-2008 08:03 AM #89
      yes!
      £15 chrome strips, a stanley knife and about 30 mins of my time

    20. 08-09-2008 10:10 AM #90
      Did you remove the lower grill to install the chrome strips? If so how hard is it to get it out?

    21. 08-09-2008 12:17 PM #91
      no you dont have too remove the grill but it easy to do

    22. 08-09-2008 12:19 PM #92
      the strips just clip on so no glue required and so can be removed easily too

    23. 08-09-2008 12:55 PM #93
      Hi fellow Oregonian! I'm in Medford, just picked up my Eos yesterday! How did you attach the vertical chrome strips? Where did you purchase the strips?

      great job on this grille! totally changes the look of the front end - much more aggressive and sophisticated than the stock slab of chrome.

      Anyone have 19" BBS CH's on an Eos?


    25. 08-10-2008 01:12 PM #95
      What size/brand of 19 inch tires are you running on your car? laos, how is the ride and do they rub at all?

    26. 08-10-2008 07:17 PM #96
      eos_turbo!
      are those mirrors chrome caps, proper chorme replacemanents, or painted?
      cheers

      really like the look of your car and gave me the inspiration for my grill mod, thanks

      My mirror caps are OEM VW (in.pro) chrome replacements. They have been "brushed" with scotchbright pads. Do a quick search for the diy from the mk5 guys

      How's the ride on those 19 inch wheels. I went to Les Schwab today and the guy there said the ride would be terrible. I love the look of the 19's.

      Eos Turbo...

      Can you shoot me the link for the diy from the mk5 guys ? I can't locate it? Those mirror caps look sweet! Where about in Portland are you located? I'm going to be there all weekend at a soccer tournament. I'd like to see your car in person.


    32. 08-20-2008 10:30 AM #102
      It is my EOS@2.0T.

      Pretty cool.
      Is that a Factory Interior, or did you get that done after delivery ?

      How about some more details?

      Is the exhaust system functional or is one side fake to make it symmetrical? Who made the rear valence to accommodate the exhaust tips?

      Who makes the rims?

      No power adjustments, other than lumbar, for the passenger?

      What else have you done to the engine besides the FMIC?

      Very nice

      Be sure to post some photos in the modded Eos photos thread, if you haven't already done so.
