      Crappy cell pic. Notched strut towers, cut down bilstein struts & universal strut bags & rolling 18x8.5 215/35 tires. Hope I never blow another bag

      I don't wanna high Jack the thread. Just giving some insight.
      Mines a daily driver. With all that done, the air'd up is suprisingly lower than most static drops. So I still hurt going over speed bumps & dips.

      Of course!

      So did you cut up the bay or did you just notch the strut tower hat so the arms would push though...

      If I just did that how much lower do you think I could get the front?

      I notched just for the arms. Might have got another 1" to 1.5"

      Hmmm that may be my little project this weekend. Its much easier to replace a strut tower hat then it is to cover holes in an engine bay.

      Sick avant by the way I've seen it a few times.

      Yeah I air hammered mine first. But didn't work like thought.
      What I should have done was let the arms knock on it over time to have a reference as where to cut. Now I'm gonna try to fit an S4 or passat cover on it to cover the holes up.
      If that doesn't fit properly I'll weld in some metal dome providing it has clearence from the hood to cover them.
      I'm loving the vibe of your ride. That color flows so well on black

      Cutting my rain tray got me on the ground, working on the covers but the snow has gotten in the way. I really like your set-up though. If done right the cuts can be barely visible with the cover in.

      When you say cover do you mean the battery cover?

      I'm gonna cut spots in the hat so it'll come down some more the lips on those things are pretty gnarly. I would really like to gain like an inch I'm not really trying to be on the ground just yet. I'd like to get a new daily beater first so the A4 can be a weekend/show cruiser.

      I've always been a fan of your car and to be honest I got little upset when I saw you are going with bags but boy, was I wrong!

      Can't wait for Santi's pics.

      He's talking about a notched spring hat. Not a notched rain tray. When the upper control arms extend to a certain point they hit the hat that they're bolted to.

      I'll search my pics.

      Clapped Out.

      Yeah I meant rain tray. I never thought about notching the hat first. Whatever works works i figure. Our cars sit kinda high on the ground up front.

      It's a daily beater really. I'm letting the wife drive it around now cause her 62 bug is in the body shop & 02 bug has got electrical issues.
      it's on the books for the body shop after winterjam though.

      yeah yeah. haha I feel for you Northern dudes for sure!

      Heres a few quick shots from tonight. It was pretty cold out especially with the wind blowing me around so I didn't wash it or anything, 3 weeks and no bath

      I need some 10mm spacers if anyone has some, preferably hubcentric. I also have a set of 20mm ECS spacers for sale. PM me for price.

      Yea why not?
      Seriously though, I guess I could bring one on the plane to FL this summer in exchange of a pair of 1-piece ambers or a NA Mk2 chrome front bumper.
