This week's A/b feature's Vdubb333's 2008 GTI. Check it out.
I'm guessing it's the angle and how the car is situated. The low-looking angle is on the PS, and the bigger wheel gap is on the DS.why is wheel gap so different between these photo's! or are my eyes decieving me
08 c30 | 10 xc70 | seventwosix
yea to me thats the perfect ride hight... just enough to cancel that gap and sit the wheels right. any lower would be bags or coils all the way down style. the pics make it look clean
It's a better offering than recently, but still:
"Who gets to drive this car?
Me and only me. You know mother’s they don’t understand how low your car is so they take speed bumps at 20km/h."
I didn't know sport springs were that low
He also says it's an 08.5 when he talks about the new FSI engine he got, that's funny I have an 08.5 with a TSI since they switched halfway through the model year.
Nice looking car, but I don't consider "black/white theme" on the list of exterior modifications.
And lastly, love the final pic of the steering wheel. I bet if I tried, I could take a better pic of mine, I have the exact same one, I'll submit one of my MKVI shift knob look out for me in Vortex autobiography in May
Also, I do realize I sound like a total douche. However, I just feel like these 19 yr old kids being featured need to put more effort into their submissions, "most humorous/embarassing story" is taking 2.5 hours to remove the FSI engine cover?
I VAG-COM IN SOUTH FLORIDA & ORLANDO PM ME
I'll make the same general statement I've made in recent A/B threads- if you don't like what you're seeing, submit your own car. It's really that simple.
... and then sit back and watch people criticize yours when it's featured.
I may submit mine simply because it's improperly modified and to prove that someone with a gigantic e-wang can get featured.

I think the wheel gap is the same all around actually, it just SHOWS more on the close up pic because the far away shot is so heavily edited, the blacks just run together.
I get that you just submit and can get featured...but I mean, isn't there some type of minimum criteria? Other than the Oettinger bumper (which I actually like), it looks like every other next to stock GTI rolling around lol.
I agree with the 08.5 FSI thing too....which is actually why I came to post...haha. So is he saying his TSI was having problems so they downgraded him to an FSI for free? I hope it's just confusion on his part, but I would be pissed if I bought a TSI model and they threw an FSI back in it lol!
I just looked this kid up and he has 2 posts... both of which he was looking for a front bumper.
And this is overlooking the fact that it's a feature with two photos... that last generic shot of a steering wheel doesn't even count.
