Yes! Forgot all about baisee00's car. She ran the front hi-def only for a while on Samarkands.
Looking at these photos reminds me why I don't like the Votex sides. They don't have very good lines to begin with and they are even lower than the Hi-Def front which just doesn't look quite right.

ReallY? I actually like the rear better than the front. But for each his own.... I only wish my FWD had the dual exhaust like the 4Motion... wish there was a way to retro fit without having to drop $400 on the pair of tips.
life's biggest regret: selling my '08 VR6 Passat with Hi-Def so my wife could get a GLK, Stupid, is a stupid does!!

Agreed. Which is why I got rid of mine and went with the hi-def sides. However, that wagon is just super secksie!

Okay, I'll bite. I didn't get a chance to wash the car before taking these, but here are a couple pics of my current setup.
Hi-Def front, single tone. Plasti-dipped teeth to match the fog grills.
Hi-Def skirts, left the lower doors unpainted. I think it matches the front grills well and gives the sides a more 3-dimensional look.
Custom smoothed and molded lower valence. Center section left unpainted. Haven't seen one done like this yet. I wanted a one piece rear bumper to match the front, but the hi-def rear didn't fit the look I was going for.
edit: After posting this I realized the plastic trim on the lower doors looks ugly and grey in these pics. Believe me, they look nice and dark when the car is clean and I give them the "Back to Black" treatment.

Sometimes a majority only means that all the fools are on the same side.

It's the meatiest, best-looking steering wheel that I think VW has produced outside of the current GTI wheel - but that wheel is still skinnier and I have big hands so the fat R36 wheel feels best.
