No one cares what you think, this thread is about posting things, not a MK4 forum come check out and hate on my ride thread. Not a discussion thread about how to measure "low" and have the lowest car ever, and sure as hell not to put down others ideas. Adhere or get out.

- Bend top of plate with whatever you can find, i used some random clamps.
- thread Velcro straps through plate holes and secure snugly to visor.
- voila, flip down visor plate!
this is true. but it should keep them from ticketing me when I'm parked and i don't want to have to keep putting it in my window.I highly doubt a police officer is going to consider that a valid way to display your license plate. Just put it in your trunk and if he gives you crap zip tie it to the front bumper in front of him.
if it comes down to it .. ill take it off the visor and zip tie it to the bumper.
In reference to the breaking the amber out of the tail lights, I've done it on my Jetta tails and it really cleans up the look. There is zero amber reflection behind the red lens. No, I didn't break anything. It took a lot of time using a Dremel and needle nose pliers.
The DIY for the red stitching is genius. I was mad that when I put my Euro Recaros in that I lost my gray stitching. To make it look even better the seat cover can be removed, then the stitching can actually be fed through the holes.
pretty mad that i just wasted 45 mins going through every page of this fking thread. only to not find what i was looking for. i did skip a few pages but i mean i really cant find it. even "searched" this thread. wtf?
i was originally looking for the FSB/axle grind info...and pg1 index says pages 29-31 i think i cant even remember now....which is obvi wrong.
ugh, not saying i dont like the new vortex, just sayin this sht is fking annoying.
but i guess i just wanted to see pictures of where/how people cut it..im just going to cut the "ends" off...
and dont laugh, im a girl and im kinda scared of power cutting tools, but fck it, gotta do what i gotta do to ride low right?
just look up kragen/oreilly auto stores around you, they sell them for 15 bucks cheap. Unless you want to go to home depot or lowes etc. and buy one for 30 bucks, its up to you. Or just ask your friend.
but yeah you just cut the ends off, as much as you could, as long as it's not gonna lay on the axle afterwards. Its just lots of sparks flying everywhere in your wheel well, just wear long sleeves and eye protection.
and their solid metal, so it does take a while to cut through them.
Yup! If it's the Golf taillights with the Amber outer lens you obviously can't, but in the Golf R/S/S/R, R/S/R/R and almost all of the Jetta lights there is an amber reflector inside the housing (it's actually more of a fluorescent yellow). Take the lights off the car and then VERY carefully use a drill or Dremel or a combination of both to cut as much out as you can, then grab pieces of it with needle nosed pliers, twist, and break it out in pieces small enough to fit through the bulb hole. You will need an air hose or really good vacuum to get the little bits out. I've done this to my Euro R/R/R/C Jetta tails, a 95 Accord coupe, and a 96 Accord sedan.
Cutting the entire outer lens off and then pulling the reflector out and resealing the lights is another option too, but I prefer my method.
I never took pictures before since they were cut out before the lights ever went on the car, but this should show you what changed. It's subtle:
