      Looks good I'm sure it takes corners much better. Glad i'll be seeing the mk3 lower around campus as well


      I like Witmer's for basic oem repairs since they only charge $40/hr, but haven't gone there since they effed up my coilover install ....and then made me rip my stickers off my windshield and raise my coils for inspection last year

      It handles super smooth and really tight. but i'll be going slower through campus now that my overall ride height is 1.6-1.8 inches down....my control arms are like 3.5 inches off the ground

      they made you take stickers off?! wow. thats kinda stupid. well, they are of the Mennonite denomination...so they must have something against stickers etc..

      did i hear you were selling your fat fives in the spring...?

      yeah since they're Mennonite I think they tend to be a little more strict and 'go by the book' per say. Glad to hear the suspensions running tight though man. nicee

      But yeah i'm possibly going to be selling my fat fives in the spring/early summer if i can get a decent job and have the $ for these other wheels I have my eye on. Were you looking into a set?

      ive been lookin at them for a while..i like how 'fat' they are lol

      are there sets of 18" fat fives? or are they only 17x8...? i dont even know they're actual specs. lol but i do really like the look of them!

      ive always wanted to get aristos for my jetta...idk what it is about them, but aristos look sick on jettas. esp now that im lowered, i wanna get my hands on a nice set of wheels

      I understand your predicament. It's all just personal preference when it comes to wheels. Aristos are nice too, i've just always been partial to the fat fives cause i think they fit the lines of the corrado really well. Just looking to move on a little bit. but yeah they're only 17" unless you get the newer fat fives off the new a6 i believe it is. On mine the et is right around 36, obv bolt pattern is 5x1. I use 5mm spacer in front, 15 in rear. They are in real nice shape. No curbage or scuffs whatsoever. rlly clean even inside the barrels too. If you ever want pics etc. i can post some of the stance etc. Or just come to the toys for tots cruise Btw let me know if you know any places that are hiring

      Gotta get back to studying psych

      wasnt hostile at all. just saying. he has a b6 and yes he's on Keskins now. he had tsw holstens in 19's but i was still on RS6 wheels (man that was awhile ago).. he had the KT1's by the time h20 came around and I was on Holstens for H20 only.

      not last night, no. I was a few days ago though. easiest way to spot me coming is the euro turns (amber bumper turns).. that seems to grab enthusiasts first.

      Last night I was enjoying my new found light at the shop, stayed till 9 and really started getting some **** around there done. (I use the rear portion of the warehouse we work out of it and out of the 30 light bulbs, a solid 28 were dead.. so I bought a case of lights)

      28 of 30 dead? Can't wait to see how your car turns out though. Were due for some serious b5's. A good buddy of mine (ChrisPop) is sloowwwwllllyy piecing together his b5 2.8. He just got done in a black s4 int. from a salvaged s4 he got his hands on, and its always good to see progress.

      btw you going to t4t?

      hahah it seems like so many people feel this way. I really don't talk to any of them either. Maybe 2-3 guys. The DCI t4t seems to get some nicer cars too, I just don't feel like dealing w the drive down to Philly

      yeah thats true, I'm just not in w the b5 family so i prolly wouldn't know a lot of them. I wish the one above^^ wasn't on reps but it still looks really really nice. good example of a car which pulls off the clear corners/rs4 mirrors great. paint looks mint too

      As for Chris I have no idea how you know where he lives .. i've been good friends with him for years and he has a ton of parts around. He just doesn't have the money to do what he wants to since he's hunting/in the process of getting a job right now, but he has big plans though
