      Most of the great pictures that i see on here are mk5's on air. Id like to see some nice stances on Mk5's without air, preferably on some 17 inch wheels or smaller since thats beggining to be rare too...Lets see some epic pics. Thanks

      Since I came up with the title (didn't have to be word for word lol) I'll participate.

      Quick iPhone pic


      Plz be adults. Ie NO air vs static and quit the fail pix.
      To OP: let this be for any size wheels, 17 and below won't net u much results

      Cool thread, but I agree with it being an all wheel size on a static drop thread.

      pure sex...whats the info on the coils





      I'm fairly new to the whole coilover scene, is removal of the perches really necessary, or is it like notching the frame for air. just to get even lower?

      thanks alos man! FK somethings. think its the highsports too many names :lol: erm fronts wound all the way down (helpers removed, both locking rings still in), rear wound all the way down with one locking ring removed

      removing the perches and helpers isnt necessary but it gives you an extra couple inches lowering which is always a good thing

      oh and more picstures from tonight to come soon
