How's it going, mate? Hadn't seen the new car; looks great!! Love the bumpers & front lip.
Now, the seatbelt mounting points... Any way to move those up higher?
I didn't see it listed anywhere, so I am wondering what dash you are using?
Your attention to detail is great. The car looks amazing, and it is my favorite color. You said you were going to drive it hard. While picture perfect cars are nice, I can't wait to see the first shots of it covered in road and track grime.
you have seriously built a beautiful car.... i'm a huge carbon fan and love how you have incorporated it into this build. every update gets better and better..... thank you good sir
So it's been a while, but I'm pretty much there. There's a few niggling problems to sort out as well as plenty of detailing here & there, but I'll work through the list slowly... It's officially on the roads, though
...And I know it could be lower, but it does get used properly, so I'm keeping a sensible ride height to maintain some wheel travel

I ran 15x8s on my last rabbit and that was a good mix between show and race - might have gone too show with the wheels this time around, but that can change soon
every car does..it looked a lot better sitting far lower
finally someone who understands the whole point of an expensive suspension, i applaude youI actually want to drive the car so it's far nicer not sitting on the bump stops... plus I spent mega bucks on suspension so it's nice to get some good ride quality.
thats why i run 16s, so that the car does not look so awfully high,wich it actually is.
everything changes some day anywayI ran 15x8s on my last rabbit and that was a good mix between show and race - might have gone too show with the wheels this time around, but that can change soon
Vid will be up fairly soon - need to get a new GoPro HD first
Personally I love the car just the way it is. Wheels/tires are great. The best part about this car is that its original ~ I haven't seen anything else like it.
I feel that the people who would have you change it, are working off a 'I like these cars' mentality. No offense, but this is truly a unique car in a sea of 'trendy' ones. The criticism given seems to be trying to pull you into trendy. Its like the mentality against your rims is: " Don't use 16s, haven't you seen that 'boob-vs-tires' picture? ~ You don't want a chick with big boobs do ya?"
Frankly, this is one of those cars that steals the show sitting right beside the 'been-there-done-that' crowd. Very well done.
