      I had to take all the rubber seals off my coilpacks in order for them to snap down. You have to slightly change the routing of the Y on the right side that attaches from what i have heard, mine was already done differently. You need to solder on an extension to the ground wire for the coilpacks so you can ground it to the nearest post.

      As far as I can remember that is everything I did.....

      Good luck!

      Did you only notch the passenger side to be able to get that low, or you did other modifications ? As for the '' lowness '' are you laying frame or the lip is holding you from doing so ?

      Just the passenger side, currently my sway bar is holding me up, i got the H-sport ones because they go under the axle, so they dont hold you up, BUT the thing is they rest on the control arm and hold you up. So currently I'm waiting for euroimagetuning to finish their tie rod flip kit/ ball joint kit, then I will lay frame, which I'm going to have to weld on a block, if i lay frame i'll crush my lip and bumper.

      I'm not sure that im supposed to be releasing this info, but currently some friends are in the process of developing a new sway bar for people on bags/extremely low, that wont hit the control arms but still goes under the axle.

      I chose the all chrome because my GLI has the chrome accents, and I fully see where you are coming from, and respect it cause i love GLI OEM lights, but the lights look 100% OEM thanks to Orau(22?) and i love the all chrome, its something you dont really see anymore in the MK4 scene, especially on retros.

      mkIV R32 front swaybar with custom end links. get em used in the classifieds for cheap and you can make the links for $20 worth of materials and a 12 pack to your welder (if you can't weld)

      ninja edit for manners:

      build is fantastic. i like where this is going.

      From my understanding the R32 sway bars mount to the strut? I would have to have the brackets welded onto the strut.

      I already have the H-sport under axle, but it's resting on the control arm when its all the way down, I'm temped to just notch the control arm and re-inforce the surrounding, but its sketchy business.

      I'm not too worried about it right now, I would like maybe an 1/8th inch lower, but right now it's the only thing thats holding my high enough to no destroy my lip/bumper when I air down.

      Thanks man, its on hold right now, cause I'm not working and I have 4 exams the last week of april here. After that, progress is going to be so fast readers wont be able to keep up! I NEED to have the car done so it can be driven to WUSTE leaving on May 27/28.

      they do...on R32's. check the latest PVW. there's an article in there where a custom end link is used to mount the R sway to the stock mkIV end link location. it's real clean and less dodgy.

      or just run no front sway.

      regardless, your build is fantastic.

      Thanks a ton for that info man! I'll definitely have to look into that! No sway is not an option, I tried it for a day, I drive too hard and like diving into the corners too hard to be without one.

      Just took a look through your 20 pages of build, it's too bad the saw blades got played, I really like them on your car, and that engine bay is looking great. Having done some shaving in the bay myself I can respect the time thats gone into making it look that good. Whole car going white? Either way its looking sick!

      just the bay. i discussed it with some friends, but it's an R and i feel like i really should stay true to DBP.

      and i think the RH's will look better yet than the blades. i liked em too, but i needed to step up my game (so to speak)

      Good call, blue is way better anyways!



      Anyone got a chrome piece for the front bumper? Mine is broken and I'm having a pain finding a new (used) one.....
