looks dope... and the reality is at first in the sneaks i thought it was a momo fitapalidi, then remembered it was the Monte Carlos
So we must like the same wheels cause back in the day when wheel shopping it was between those, my hock Rs, some Millie Miglia 5 spokes, Borbet 6 spokes, and TSW 7 spokes...
I want to go get my circa 1998 wheel catalogs right now...lol
ive seen this car all over the "what i did yesterday" thread(i think) and this car is absolutely awesome. whenever i see messed up mk3s here i just pass on by. definitely night and day. must give your the props you deserve. my favorite rim is tsw. keep dubbin
PS would love to see more pics of the green jetta with the gold rims
what do you mean by "whenever i see messed up mk3s i here i just pass on by" ?
I mean, it takes time to get a car where you want to it to, if even decent.
granted, we see POS cars on here daily, i like to think a lot of them are "works in progress".
which jetta are you talking about?
haha, your mk3 is very inspirational in itself.
i have seen it twice, 3x in person i believe but still haven't met ya man. next year fo sho!
thanks for the words, ya know me all too well
and i feel that's what it's all about. no need for over the top, balled out crazy ****.
With that, i'm gonna tell everyone that these latest wheels will definitely be the last wheels on my car for a long time. No, no, for real! I'm serious! hahah. It's time for an Intermission.
I picked up one more set of wheels yesterday and they will be a project set that I hope to rock late spring.
So, if i'm not putting on dope wheels, what else am I gonna do?
I love the GTI front end and wouldn't really change it but I am considering the following:
Jetta smoked ecodes
Late Jetta badgeless grill with slats black
Vento bumper and Vento CL lip
Dual rounds! with clear lamps
Rieger GTX lip - hard to find in stock form, maybe only reps floating around. But i've always wanted one and maybe i'll get lucky.
Motorwise, i'm really just collecting all the parts to get a solid build going.
I have collected so far:
268 DRC Cams
Neuspeed power pulleys
2.9 Upper & Lower Intake Manifolds
The car already has:
Autotech SS 2.5" w/Magnaflow Exhaust
Ported Downpipe and Exhaust manifold (Root beer tuning)
ABD Big Bore elbow
BFI .5 motor mount inserts

the 17s are def not gonna be everyone's taste.

16's def look better, but i've done 16's pretty hard at this point.
