      just figured id make a timeline so i dont feel the need to start a new thread whenever i get something fun. anywho, ill track back to the day i bought it. this past april. 09 jetta s. 5 spd manual.

      me with my first new car pose

      i soon after bought some wheels which i had a helluva time trying to get on. i didnt like them and needed smaller tires so i sold them for a big profit.

      i then lowered it using these

      and got this

      rocked the steely look for a bit, but eventually got bored. bought some roof racks and went camping with it.... not a good idea when youre just under 24" from ground to fender arch.

      now, i just ran across an amazing deal on some sc430 wheels. and picked them up today. so here they are. no tires yet. will come as soon as the funds allow it.

      more will be added when more fun things hit my door step.

      so ive really been trying to think of something to set the boring all silver look off a bit, while also trying to keep it classy. first off, i need tint badly. this summer was miserable without it.

      and secondly i wanted to do a different color on my grill to get rid of all that chrome. i was thinking a nice maroon/burgundy with some sort of pearl mixed in. but then id be looking a bit like ducky there. then i saw cerulean blue metallic that comes off of some lexus' and it looked pretty clean. anyone have some suggestions? what works well with silver?
