      500 Mile review on the Nexen N3000 (235/35/19). Dry grip is outstanding, I feel much more confident to throw the car round tight corners and have done with no loss of grip. Ride comfort from 17" to 19" is barley noticeable on the Nexen. The car almost feels like it gliding down the road. I would rate the noise level about 2 out of 10. Only had 1 wet day so far but they seem to handle just fine. For the money they are a outstanding tire and you cant go wrong. Tread design is also something to talk about and they look amazing. These have made driving a pleasure again.
      Would I buy them again? Damn straight..

      Only mk5 coils with a notch will bring you that low unless you go air.

      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.
