      Headlight switch & glovebox area are still cornsilk color because I didnt think it flowed well. I'm very happy with the result!

      Cost: $8.00 bucks.

      Is it just me or does this car actually have no wheel gap and forward rake? Wasn't sure this could be done since the rear fenders go lower than the fronts stock.

      Is this done just with lowering?

      driven Honda's, Im looking forward to the VW experience. First thing I had to do though was get rid of

      After a full month of hounding down V.W. Corporate and the road side assist company they employed to do the lockout on my vehicle; they came to the conclusion that they could not find Auto Rescue (Inman Auto Rescue of Illinois) responsible for the damages done to my doors, trim, panels, tint(couldn't get a good picture of it), and upholstery.

      (sorry for the links; couldn't get the images to show)

      That being said I followed it up w/ my insurance company and this is the Estimated damages via State Farm. (Body shop estimate yet to come)

      Car sits level all around it's on st coils and the wheels are 17x7.5 on 215/45's all around. There's about half a finger gap all around.

      My wife and mother in law were the ones whom witnessed him doing the lockout. His tools consisted of the cloth air bag, rubber wire w/ no rubber tip, and a flat head screw driver w/ partial electrical tape.

      I didn't see the damages until I got home from work unfortunately and just about lost it.

      I know a large percentage of roadside assistance workers know their stuff, but this guy was just down right dumb. You can't do the job properly just tow the darn thing.
