      =/ miss the black, liked the contrast.
      "G L I" spaced out like that for some reason just gives the car a really sporty yet premium look, shame on whoever convinced you to take it off.
      The only thing that is really fugly are the eyelids. Those shrouds in the housings are amazing and don't deserve to be covered up.
      I like the Thunder Bunny front more than the R32 front because you can actually get fog grills. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I liked the black too, but now that I've seen the difference with the color matched, I like it so much more. I'll keep the black grille and maybe someday I'll switch it back. I just always see Thunder Bunny fronts with black grilles, so I wanted to be different (aside from a GLI with a Thunder Bunny bumper).
      I agree about the headlights, but for some reason, I like the eyelids. I know they are not everyone's cup of tea, but there's no way I'm getting a Boser hood.
      No one convinced me to take the GLI off the bumper but me. For a couple reasons, but mainly because I wanted something different and more subtle. In the grille is rarely done on the Rabbit grille and again, I wanted to do something different.

      looking good props for another eemilita
      only thing thats bugging me out is the thunderbunny front looks to be off in color to rest of car
      others wise looking good so far

      Thanks! You know, that's something I've noticed a lot with all Thunder Bunny bumpers. I think it has to do with when the bumper was painted and the texture. When my car is washed and waxed, it's hard to see the difference. I tend to noticed it when the car is dirty. Also, when I bought color matched side markers, I had to return the Platinum Grey ones and exchange for United Grey. The same with the new grille...it's United Grey and it matches. But the eyelids are Platinum Grey; go figure!

      That dash tray mod is so good looking.
      I actually just ordered one yesterday even though my car has the auto climate. I'll deal with it.

      Thanks...I love it. I keep my car so clean and empty, so I was worried about not having anything to put in it! It got rid of my dash rattle and I keep a couple chargers and blue tooth in it so it was worth it. I'm happy I got it used though...for a good price.

      I received a new to me Thule fairing today off of eBay. Thanks to this thread, I was "inspired" to install the fairing as mentioned in the thread. So, I threw it on, and love the fact that I have no more hum. Here's a few shots from this evening after a nice drive.



      And I also made eggs today.

      Me and my buddy decided that we are going to install these:

      ...on Thursday. Couldn't find anyone to do it for a decent price. Neuspeed Sport Springs.
      *Edit* Also put on my Peloton fork mount bike carrier the other day. Pardon the cell phone picture...seems to be all I ever have on me, since the wife always steals my camera!

      Thanks! Yeah, definitely. After the springs, I'm looking to get a shoot in with my buddy and his '04.5 GLI, so maybe you can join us.

      Well, I washed and waxed it yesterday an today, I'm heading over to my buddy's place to put the springs on. If all goes well, there will be pics either tonight, or tomorrow morning. I'm also happy I found a coupon for an alignment in the paper...I like to save as much money as possible!
      Here's one from last night after if got a coat of Ice.

      So, me and my buddy did the springs install yesterday. Pretty easy. Took a little bit because I had to find the 14mm triple square socket for the pinch bolt but once we got it, everything was fine.

      I like the way the car felt on the drive home last night. Just gotta wait a bit for them to settle. The front still looks a little high, but hopefully that changes. I tightened everything to spec but in a week I'll pull all the tires and double check everything. Props to mxpx09rawker and 99.5 for their write-ups...they helped a lot.
      Now I think it's time for some spacers!

      Happy Easter to all.
      Went out today to return a few things and while I was waiting for a few of the stores to open, I went behind the stores and snapped a few pictures. The car is pretty dusty and durty, but I wanted some good pictures of the new ride height.



      I think I am going to have to take the driver's front wheel off and see why that wheel is the only one that hasn't settled right. When I get home (I'm at the in-laws') I am going to actually measure the fender height, but by sticking two fingers in-between the wheels and fenders, the driver's front feels like it has more space. It's possible that the pinch bolt has to be loosened and let the strut down more. We'll see...any suggestions?
      *Edit* Didn't feel like bumping the thread, but wanted to add these pictures to the timeline. So, mk2dogg and I got our PG GLI's cleaned up for a little "Rust" amateur photo shoot.

      First car show was yesterday and I think it was kind of a waste but whatever. Not a huge turnout and it was a light rain all day. But at least I got the car super clean before and it was free.

      Cool beans! It was a good buying experience with WVM. It's come a long way since you saw it last!

      So, figured I'd bump this and add a few things I just got/will be doing to the car. I just bought a used throttle body pipe from XC450 and the two firewall pieces, from Faulkner VW, needed to do the noise pipe delete. I am also going to be getting a EuroJet PCV fix from the forums. My euro cup holder from TM Tuning should be here next week as well. Once my motorcycle sells, and I clear some debt, I will be getting either 5 mm or 8mm spacers all the way around.

      With all of this said, I don't know what the wife will get me for Father's Day!

      Now, I need to start on my winter steelies and roof rack. The tires need to be taken off and I need to retrofit some TPMS that I have sitting in my closet, as well as either white tire paint the tires or get portawalls. Then the rims need to be painted (same grey as my engine cover) along with my OEM carrier bars. Then come winter, my Denvers will be stripped, scratches fixed and also painted the same color. Getting some werk done!

      Quick update. Deleted the noise pipe the other day...huge improvement. Here's one of the only pictures so far...



      Also took a quick derty picture...don't mind the "CRAZY APE" euro plate. It's a joke I'm playing on a friend.



      Got my A3 throttle pipe today and will put that in and also got my euro cup holder so it's time to go rip the car apart. Finally, the last coat of finish is going on my roof rack bars and fairing today so they'll be on tomorrow.
