I'm only thinking about them for the winters right now, but if I like they way they look, I may spend some money on a good set and run them all year round.
Sure you can have your car *look* clean from about 10 feet away with less work, but you can tell the difference up close pretty easily. It's not really as hard as it might sound.
I want my car looking brand new or better.

Anyone in the GTA installed lowering springs on their R and can recommend a shop and about what price the install was? I'm lookin at the H&R Sport Springs which if ordered online will be just under 300.
Also, do you also need to change some other things as well like bolts, bearings etc when you change your springs?
I'm finally picking up my CSG R this Monday, and wanted to know if anyone knows of any active GB's for the LED tail-lights.....I know there have been a few, but I've frankly lost touch of which ones are still in-progress if any at all.....Thanks!
Which tails are you exactly looking for? If you want the light red ones or the ones with the fogs you actually don't need a GB and it comes in cheaper in fact. If you want the dark red/tinted non-fog ones you either do a GB or buy at full price from a store. If you want details I can post them or just go to mk6 "Private Classifieds - Buy, Sell and Trade > Exterior Parts" and you'll see my post. (Sorry if I'm not suppose to post to other forums but I didn't see anything in this forums' rules about doing so last time I looked)
I bought mine from sk-multishop. the item was brand new with the boxes taped from factory. the seller screwed up initially and sent the outers in tinted version and inners non-tinted. cost me extra $80 in shipping to send the inners back and get the correct ones. I am not a fan of the rear fog, you need the special non-front fog headlight switch for the rear for to work, otherwise your front passenger led turns off with a switch that has front fog light control
Just to let anyone here in Canada know , aircare program now officially ends in 3 years. NO aircare for us R's. Can this now mean when we do an exhaust i can buy catless downpipe........no more government watching us now ....let er rip !!!!! Downpipe straight to muffler , mmmmm, mmmmmm ,m !
Bumping the thread to show off my new shoes. RSe14's. I got a good deal so I jumped on it, the only thing I don't like is all they had in stock was 225's. Would have preferred 235's.
I have pics that I took myself, but here are the ones they took after install:
After much delay, I got my LED tails, VCDS and did the install. I had to clear the codes for the rear lights and the EPC light disappeared on start-up. All is good.
All you need is here:

Any of the Richmond Hill drivers feel like stopping by to let a jealous Jetta driver see the car, and possibly sit down in the passenger seat?
Figure it's a long shot, but I'd love to see the inside of one, and hear it running. Saving up for my own purchase 2016 (fingers crossed)...
I'll have to remember to come check it out next year Thanks for the recommendation.
Was wondering if the car gets "smoother" wrt. turbo "kick in" after the break in period. I'm at ~3.5K km and noticed when I first had the car at low kms under the break-in period when the turbo kicked in I really felt it; and heard once in a while (even then seemed faint compared to other cars I've heard w/ turbos). Now I don't seem to get that "all of a sudden jolt" when accelerating hard (not complaining but just wondering if this is due to post-break in). Also don't seem to hear the turbo sound hardly. It could all be in my mind or I've learn to shift smoother in this car but just was wondering. This is my first turbo car so this may be a stupid question but thought I'd ask.
