      What specs on the wheel are you going with? I had planned in 20x9 et35 and I'm worried now that they may stick out past the fenders. I may have to find an alternative wheel.
      Euro switch, 30% 3M nano ceramic tint, Chinese BiXenon headlights and LED tail lights, H&R springs, paddle shifter steering from V6, 20" Giovanna Kilis wheels, 225/35ZR20 Conti DWS tires

      Did you install the sub yourself? If so how did you hook it up to the factory head unit ... or what did they have to do to get it to work. What size did you go with? I have factory speakers too ... just looking for a little more bass.

      Thanks ...

      There is no way I would go 20x9 et 35 you are asking for rubbing issues big time.
      I the wheels I am looking at will be 20x8.5 et 43 or 45 just to make sure they will tuck in with no rubbing.

      I had a shop do it for me. I know they tapped in to the sub in the trunk that I have from factory.

      btw its a 10" JL Audio

      I have an se ... do you think they can tap into any factory speaker ... or probably needs to be the sub ...

      I got a system in my SE. What they did was tap into the rear left speaker using a line out converter. They installed the device in the trim of B pillar.

      New Commandment

      Thou shalt not exaggerate existing wheel gap by installing 20's. Thou shalt first lower the car a reasonable amount.

      So let it be written, so let it be done.

      However, Mreuro, your car looks excellent. And I think your new wheel selection will be a nice tie-in for the shiny OEM Passat grill (the black OZ's are awesome, but I felt you needed to blackout your grill to align the aesthetic.)

      Just my opinions, keep on rockin
