      yeah I got those emails all the time and my R stuff took 4 months. Hopefully that's not the case with your bumper.

      Why would anybody go buy a new GTI when they can have a fully built one for the same price. If I was in the market, this would be mine.

      It's not a racecar, it's a GTI. Maybe asking a bit too much from it?

      no rubbing. no spacer needed for the brakes. Madison Matt (forgot his exact screen name) bought the advans.

      Those new vw volks look pretty promising. Vomit / done a million times design, but lightest wheel they make I guess. 18x8.5 is something like 14 lbs.
