      06 Touareg was dropped back in the beginning of 07 for a 07 WB Passat. That car only lasted until the 08 came out with the factory R-GT kit.

      Bored, So I took a ginder to the front caliper today. Not much shaved off, just enough to get rid of the front line in the cast. I have some White G2 caipler paint on order from E-bay. $37 with free shipping is not bad at all.

      K-Sport Coil-over put on order today, Still waiting to get the calipers powder coated. More than likely knock them both out at the same time.

      Normally, I really dislike body kits of any kind, but this actually looks really slick. I would say it looks like something which would have come from the factory.

      So I finally got the wife on broad to start allowing me to Mod her 08 Passat. I will not go to the extreme Like I have with my 03 GTI as this car will remain a true daily driven car.

      Weird how factory it looks.....

      J/k Pablo_max this is a hi-def kit. It is manufactured by vw and does come from the factory on some passat's and some people by them after original purpose and have them installed.

      I'm trying my BEST to wrap my head around the hi-def kit!! Yours is a very special one because the wheels and lowering changed it completely and when i saw the pics I did say gahhhhhhhht damn!!.

      But the one or two I see around here really gross me out I think?

      But I do LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE that ass end!!

      Can somebody please help me figure out if I like it or not.

      That ios my range of emotion when I see this kit!

      Looks great! However, a bit too low for my taste; raising it about .5" - 1" would be just about perfect. I never really liked the tucked-fender look.
