      hey mang, for the suspension, it will take from 30 min to an hour depending on how tired i am, i have all the necessary tools. and i was planning on doing it at my shop because its well lit and i dont have to lay on my dirty driveway.

      ive probably done 100 vw suspension jobs in the last 5 or 6 years.. so you got nothin to worry about

      I was wondering if you had two screen names or what haha...

      I feel good knowing you've done a ton of VW suspensions... first I need to swap out this coolant temp sensor and pass my emissions by the end of the month and then I'm down for the suspension anytime... do you have keys to the shop and can do it any day or only when its open?

      I thought he has a GTI though, unless it was painted the GLI platinum grey, IDK maybe its similar

      yeah its a little darker but in certain light it has a blue tint to it which is pretty nice! I'm still deciding on what color scheme to do with it though because I want to paint the rubstrips and rims but black on grey has been done a lot so who knows...

      still want to know if you think I should leave the rubstrips if I went with bronze wheels or black rubstrips like Coreys??

      anyone else can throw in their 2 cents as well!

      this is just 100% opinion but i think you should trade the long beaches for monte carlos... they looks so hot on silverstone

      you DO have long beaches right? i like to make things up in my head sometimes

      yup long beaches, same exact car in the picture except unpainted rubstrips, a spoiler, and a black turn marker. I should have someone in the pshop thread put some montes on that dub and see how it looks... should I leave the montes polished or do something to them?
