      you know the 3.2 is a totally different spoiler and its one piece right? they do sell some add on lips on ebay that make it look like it and osirs makes a carbon one but, like the guys said before i think that car looks great with out it, i would put some nice wheels on its and give it a nice stance but good luck with whatever you plan on doing

      I've heard its a seperate spoiler, but was planning on going Osir anyways... But I am def. considering keeping the car smooth. Give me a few weeks to toss on the coils and see where it goes. I am not sure I can pull off the 17s, and I am sure it will be a while till everything is figured out.

      Thanks for the input guys.

      Ahhh geez its the mk4 forum all over again! Bwhahaa

      One new piece of news is that Rotiform states they cannot help me with 17" to 18" lips/barrels.... so might be time to sell the 17s and get some 18" futuras.

      Also just ordered:

      Timing belt service sticker and Slim plate bolts from ECS.

      Restore? In what sense? Lenses crappy are you talking about painted inserts and removing amber reflector/smoked corners?

      Detailed link for paint/osir corners here:

      http://public.fotki.com/mcphill/audi...design_smoked/

      For lenses, I used 3M Lens renewal kit, (# 39014) to remove deep scratches and polish surface. Worked well but a bit unnerving. Couple of before/after pics here.

      cheers

      I'm assuming you mean taking the scratches out since our cars have crappy plastic lenses. You can wet sand and buff with your own stuff, or use a renewal kit. Either way its the same thing

      Well this isn't going to work. My 17s are just not going to fill that arch at ALL.

      Time to start looking at new wheel options. Right now contemplating 18" Algernons, Futuras or the AMG wheels.

      Here are a few other ideas.... I know the AMGs are reps and I am going to get the crap beat out of me for them... so I am pondering some higher end options.

      18" Impuls


      18" Futuras


      18" Algernons

      I like the futuras, I'm a sucker for stepped lips, makes any wheel look top notch

      18s won't fill out arches either unless you get oversized tires, but then you could do same with 17s: oversized tires.

      only solution to "fill" is going lower : spring/strut combo, coilovers, bags. Pick one.

      I'm going lower people. Jeesus. Apparently I'm the only person that understands wheel diameter in relation to arch diameter lol Bottom line is, not ever going this low, and even this low, the wheels still look slightly smallish.
