I am doing the same right now. I have a couple extra sets of the badges so I am using the matte black ones right now. I have a set being painted as we speak. I am doing gloss black and clear on the front VW and gloss black with candy white background and clear on the rear VW. I will pick them up this weekend and post some pics.
Installed my ST coil overs the other day. Could go lower but it rubs and rides like poop. I'm not into the slammed look more about performance for me.
Waiting on fog light kit from ecs idk who else sells the harness hopefully that will be here soon.
Also have the lower chrome trim grill that everyone hates lol
"smoke" tail lights
And finally an ECU tune after i decide which one to go with. Most likely Unitronic
Your car looks great too!
My car is already tinted! Lol it's just the lighting. Tint in the front isn't allowed where I am so I only have 50 up front and 35 in the rears and back. Kinda wish I did 20 in the rear though.
