      Picked up this VR with blown front struts, other than that it runs awesome but is a little beat up. Driver seat was torn so I traded a friend my Audi seats for his Corbeau racing seat and Schroth Harness. Threw on my Momo Wood Grain wheel and got a Pioneer head unit with an L7 Kicker and 1000 watt amp to compliment the factory Bose system. Great for a daily and I had the stuff all laying around so I spent $0 there. On to pictures.

      When I first got it, pic from the ad


      Got it to the wifes parents house and it sat there while I pulled the Rokkors from my other car.


      Better tires, different wheels, Rokkors on


      Started spray paint fun, I like the flat feel of the High Heat paint


      Don't like OEM skirts sold them for $50 and went with truck bed liner, say what you will it's my car my style.






      Serge came over and we did some lip/bumper work on our cars


      Threw on my red bumpers while the white ones were prepped for spray bed liner and raced to Elk Grove to pick up these Diamond Racing Steelies for a good price, got them on and the ET was like -5 or something so they touched the caliper and poked too much. FAIL.


      Volvo lip, smoked corners and sides, need 1 more fog then I'll put the smoked dummies and yellow fogs on


      Slapped it together. I like it


      Textured moldings and texture all around



      And that's my daily. Only money I spent was spray paint everything else I had already. Will be rolling my fenders and put on my Mercedes wheels on when I paint them white and get 205 40 16s.

      Specs on Volvo lip:
      90+ 740/940
      88+ 760

      If you buy one you'll figure out how to mount it. I mounted mine upside down I like it that way because it's aggressive, a few of my friends did it right side up after I showed them my first use of it. So it's up to you.

      And yeah I have a red Jetta too but it is probably gonna get parted. I'm just too broke to do anything with it.

      I'd dig the lip if it lined up better with the fender.. other than that.

      Thanks everyone for the kind words. Today I bought a keyless remote and added a white box I had laying around. Remote was $55 with my discount. Then spent $60 on LEDs, dome light, map light, rear passenger lights, trunk light, side markers, tail lights and license plate lights. Really added some modern aspects to a 14 year old car. Also order yellow H3s for the fogs and will be hitting up Wagen Wheels for yellow Lamin-X. A buddy of mine has a spare fog light he's gonna hook me up with and I have the other. Will be switching my black carpet from my parts car along with the black trim and door cards to the white one to continue the theme, may use some tan pieces for contrast. Then I need to sell my 195 50 16s to buy some 205 40 16s but I'd like to trade my front adapters for 15mm they are 25mm now. After that I mount my Mercedes wheels I recently refinished

      wow, wish i could find a vr for $1k...

      instead i get a crappy GL and a vr6 engine to try to swap in.

      Looks good though, nice touch with the spray paint.

      25mm all around. Would like to do 15mm in the front. What size tire do you have? I wish I could afford 165 45 16

      Thank you sir. They were 15s. Can't fit a 14 on a VR to my knowledge.

      Just got done an hour ago putting the wheels on and rolling the fenders. I need 165 45 16s And 35mm spacers in the rears. Better shots later when I have a spot and light.

      Are those still your 195/50/16 tires? It will look really good with smaller tires. Can you take a picture of the front. I wanna see where a 25mm sits with the fender up front. Thank you
