      a lil later


      Wanted to make smth like these guy made with his exhaust




      It took me about 1.5 hour from the begining of searching tips to the end of their installation
      Don't try to fit smth more then 2x90mm

      The result:







      I think it looks almost the same but there is a little difference in the tips shape.
      I like it

      installed gti 5 mfsw, I think everything is completed inside except b7 vents



      Besides that installed Vogtland full suspension (shocks + -40mm springs)



      New front shocks are the same size as the bad roads pack shocks, I thought they will be shorter:shock:



      Front/rear springs are shorter than stock



      Rear shocks are shorter for 1.5-2cm









      This how it was before...



      and how it sits after install, got lower about for 5.5-6 cm from stock от





      Wheels are my buddies winters, need to put on my summer set to see the finish result

      Debaged trunk and grill
      Put on lamin-x pre cut film 6% tint.
      Film was pre-cutted +- 0.5cm to the headlight shape...
      Thought it must be more accurate...if it's called pre -cut

      I'm really sorry for delay!
      In work days i don't have time to visit tyreshop to mount tires because it closes too early.
      This week we have a lot of holidays so my 'tireman' has day offs too.
      I think in the end of this week wheels will be on car!
      I really want to see myself how they look like at lowered car too)))
      The more days left after susp install the car looks lower and lower for me - it's strange)

      Yes, grill is oem, partnumbers are:
      3c0 853 651 GPWF - with parking sensors
      3c0 853 651 EPVF - without them

      Nice car dude! I looked like an SUV with the stock suspension now from the pictures it looks about stock ride hight thats for the rest of Europe , but the pics may be fooling me to think it's higher than it actually is.

      My VW dealer told me that there is a short plate mount on the first reference (I need the one with parking sensors). Did yours come with it and you didn't fit it ?

      That's why I do hesitate to order it...

      As i can see dealers in every country are the same))))

      The grill that is screwed on my car now is 3c0 853 651 GPWF.
      I checked this. No it came without short number plate. I think your dealer tell you such thing because in usa this short plate holder optionally mounts to this GPWF grill in states where plates are necessary.
      There is no oem grill where the chrom surface is cutted to fit short usa plate holder like our europe one. Chrom surface are full face and cutted to fit europe plate mount.

      Brushed aluminum?
      As for it, I had in stock alu center piece and the upper one was wooden.
      I changed wood to alu with a member of our club for free He took my wooden trim, and I took his alu one.
      You can find a lot of it at ebay.

      looks brilliant, it's come out really well.

      You planning on giving the windows a light tint?
