WELCOME TO MY THREAD
I'm coming from a 2000 mazda protege then to a 2008 Nissan altima coupe. I was in a serious accident with the coupe, in which I could have died in but walked away from. That moved me to jump into my vw in the beginning of june 2010. I was looking for room, comfort, affordability and style. I found my car pretty much brand spankin new and a good deal. I stalked the forums for a while so i knew from day one id be doing some changes... here goes my progress build.
Most Pics are taken from my Iphone but a few from an old Cannon Rebel. Please bear with the quality of some Enjoy

nah no close.... i respect your sillyness tho. quick update. i ordered a magnaflow catback with 2.5" piping along with a vibrant quiet flow resonator so i can get a nice tone. nothing too loud and obnoxious, my goal is sound but to keep the drone down. i still have to find some tips that sit nice on the muffler and in the valence because im not liking the ones that come on it. i mounted the wheels for the summer and even tho im poking like a fat persons belly, miraculously i get no rub! even with people in the car. it works! i have a set of fogs on the way and euro fog covers that i have to modify and get painted to fit my bumper along with a reiger rear window spoiler that i have to get painted and im debating on mounting aswell.
i plan on getting some rear camber when i go to get the exhaust put in, just for looks and to tuck the back alittle.
once again pardon the iphone4 shots... i promise better pix soon as i can steal my girls rebel

Thanks ABA im doing what i can on a budget. I like the rs4s... They fit to my liking and give my car that aggressive look i wanted with that wide n low stance. Theyre just kind of heavy but it makes me drive more cautious you know

2.5" piping magnaflow cat back. Tips from previous owner but i may swap them out

Im on neuspeeds although most will recommend coilovers for adjustable hieght. I just wanted subtle drop just to get rid of the wheel gap. Having lowered it i have to drive a little more cautiously, certain speed bumps and driveway entrances are bigger than most. I havent noticed a change in any bouncyness but it handles courners a little better. With the wheels i can still get 4 people in with no prob but since im poking alittle i have to take it eaven more easy
saw it on the other thread.
good my friend.
@ Aris I think im gonna have to try n make that. Gotta try n take off werk
And thanks greyt, i see your putting in massive werk!
