Thats one sick ass .: R . Those rims are bada$$ bet they were pricey. where did you get the r side lights from.
Yea your R looks like a 4x4. You should get with me and we can take the cars into Belfair and go mudding.

It looks fine.....
You don't need to lower it like these others have suggested. I don't know why everyone has to come in and say things like this, it doesn't have to be rubbing the wheewells to look good. And when it is that low you need to correct spindle angles up front or you loose the designed suspension geometry for the suspension travel.
Function > Form !!!!!
this is how my r would look if I had a bunch of cash to do all the body work and paint on it no doubt always loved flat black was gonna do my gti that until I found my R cheap and bought it.
Thanks guys most of my money is being sucked into the black hole I lovingly call my GTI. I grabbed the wheels from a friend, that needed some cash, they are still growing on me.
Here is my dilemma with this set up
1. I scrape the cupra lip EVERYDAY, just waiting for it to rip off!
2. Nissan fitment so i have adapters that push the wheels out too far IMHO.
3. If I go with thinner adapter I'm told I'll probably rub against the struts.
4. Need to roll the fenders... hope that will help with the rubbing, and she rubs EVERYDAY!
5. Just seems like TOO much silver on a matte black car!
6. Sold my black and red wheels already so no going back right now!
the "black hole"
Also those are the old headlights, my Celis kinda exploded so Rick is using his set to rebuild mine.
LoL, OP is rubbing and dragging that R32 all over town and you guys say "needs to be lower"?
Hahaha, then he post a pic of his GTI that tucks and drags nutts all over town!
He just powned the noobs and I bet more silly comments are soon to follow.
Not everyone wants to remove the fender liners just for a photo shoot.

*R32 1518*, biggest head ever to fit in a GOLF!
Congrats, turd burglar.
I have to agree with every one who commented about the ride height. I live in Colorado Springs. I had the wonderful idea of lowering my R by 2in ... after the bumper was torn off by a chunk of ice and gravel in the road, I raised it back to almost stock height again. Cracks in the bumper and scrapped up undercoat from a low-ride R is Ghetto! I assume Washington is rather similar, if you care about your R and actually want to drive it around crazy mountain roads ... adjust back to almost stock height then widen the stance and upgrade to coil-overs, sway-bars, and such.
Obviously if you live in a flat area and your R is just a show car, you can keep it dumped and not worry about the damage associated. But if you enjoy driving like a crazy man up long mountain, windy curvy roads at stupid speeds like me ... your R will love you for not dumping it!!
