      2003 Wolfsburg Ed. 1.8T
      -18x8.5 et35 Audi RS4 reps (final et 15 & 20)
      -Rokkor coils
      -debadged, black grille, and clear side markers
      -Hyperboost DV(hasn't been installed yet )
      -Interior: Pioneer AVH-p3100 HU, Alpine S series speakers, Kicker CVR-12, Rockford Fosgate 500 watt amp, wood floor trunk, and an airbag light courtesy of VW
      At its best:



      Travel mode now:
      -raised and 17x7 et38 Longbeaches (no spacers)



      So here is my build thread. Enjoy.

      Bone stock. The day got it. (handed down from my dad)





      Added some bass. 12" Kicker CVR and RF 500 watt amp combo with Pioneer AVH-P3100 head unit



      It snowed in Texas so I had to take one of my snow dog



      Probably my favorite picture spot, and added the german colors badge.



      Then got Rokkors and painted the grille black



      Painted the brake calipers red



      Picked up some Audi RS4 reps 18x8.5 et35. Pirelli P Zero Nero 225/40



      Lowered it 3/4 in more







      Got the back driver side fender repaired btw.

      15mm spacers ordered a couple days ago from ECS and badges are soon to be taken off.

      Thanks for looking!

      very nice car... what did you used to paint your calipers, I'm thinking into doing this with duplicolor stuff.
      imo that's as low as it's practical, I'll be lowering about the same amount as you

    11. 09-12-2011 09:17 PM #11
      itll look much cleaner when the german badges are gone

      I used G2 paint, and yeah, I daily this to college everyday so driving around below 24" won't work but "it can always go lower" is always on your mind when you get coils.

      Update: De-badged the trunk. Anyone know if you do the same thing to take the flag off? I'm not sure if the adhesive is the same as the chrome badges.

      I am having some rubbing issues and I'm not sure if it's the tire on the coil or not, but I ordered some 5mm spacers to be on the safe side.
