      Yea I like to keep it OEM+ I am in Europe right now and trying to see if I should leave my PS3 here with my family just so I can pick up some OEM Jetta led tails And you're right, the Graphite Blue is a really nice color, I always liked it.

      Keep trying to picture them on the Graphite Blue, can't wait to see yours on

      This was my previous Jetta...you might have seen it here...or not

      I got rid of it because of stupidity...I saw a CC 4motion I wanted a got a good deal on it at the time but then regretted selling the GTI ever since So after that I just decided so get something less expensive...I was wasting wayyy too much money on monthly payments

      thanks man... this winter is a winter of investing in the ride... want to look nicer by spring...

      Does anyone know where i can get a set of 4 215/40/18 tires? I have 4 nankang ns2 @ 225/40/18, id like to trade with someone local they have about 70% tread on em and minor rub wear. I need to stretch a little more so i can go lower.. tuck the rubber and poke the wheel. i checked classifieds and even craigslist. know of anything let me know thanks

      as spring approaches im getting the heavy mod bug and im burning through winter hybernation $$$. all for a good cause though. i attended the 5th annual Grey's Papaya/ city pie cruise with the tri state family on saturday and had fun. even got the lady to join me for once lol.

      made another purchase
      215/40/18 Pirelli P Znero M&S's. like i said im going lower and have to stretch abit more to avoid massive rub


      also have a bunch of stuff for sale... check it out if you need parts and are going back to stock
      BUY EM CHEAP!

      My pirellis came in today. Shouts to tirebuyer for the fast free delivery

      Pirelli P zero nero m+s 215/40/18 to stretch on 18x8.5s. Gonna be nice with the new coils and the drop

      Here you go man, its kinda recent but today i installed my fogs and grilles. Pardon the paint chip thats fixed now lol. Yea chrome slats look really good on blk grilles.


      I also went to install my euro led tails today and i couldnt get the wiring out of the pin connector.. I put back the original light for now but my blinker is messed up.. It blinks fast on my dash display but the tail light does nothing. Im thinking a error because the bulb out warning light is on in the cluster... Anyone else experience this?
