I hope I'm not stirring up sh!t with this topic but, I'm looking into buying a mk5 and I'm really far from interested in bags. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> Post up if you have any pics, thanks! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

I could only change lanes in intersections because they didnt have box dots. Freeway driving was pretty crazy also.

      i have the early version of fk (silverlines i think) <br>from what the PO has told me they arent even <I>technically</I> DOT approved<p><br>they belonged to hokie gti before me and hes posted pics tucking wheel if im not mistaken on 18's with the helpers still in<p><br>i think i have a pic of where the coils are right now in that last pic gimme a minute

    25. 03-04-2010 09:23 PM #25
      Yeah Im pretty sure you cant go much lower than I was. Im the only person with ksports like that. I told Aj (f_399) how to do it but I don't remember if he did it. <p>fks will not do it, bgs wont do it, ultra lows dont think so, I dont think there are much else "go low" coilovers. Megans have the same design as the ksports but you still need to modify them Im pretty sure to get where I was.
