      Wanted to reiterate that do what you want to your car. As long as you're happy, that's all that matters. I wouldn't do some of the stuff you have, but that's why I have my own car.

      As far as the badges go, I'd recommend adding something to them. I have a white Jetta and did the black badges all around. I did it without knowing everyone else under the sun has (I sanded the stock ones and painted them). Later though I touched them up with the matching white paint for accent. I also painted the smile on the grille. It's little touches, but it goes a long way to add some uniqueness to your ride while still keeping your black and yellow theme. Just some food for thought.

      Also, I see your profile says you live in Shallotte. My family has a beach house at Ocean Isle and I've been going there for 21 years. I love that area.
      thanks, and ive thought about doing that but im not really focused on it as of right now.

      and thats awesome, i love ocean isle beach but i honestly think that sunset beach is better just because it seems more private and peaceful

      I've only been on Sunset a few times. When I was younger I loved the draw bridge, but now they have that new monster. Calabash is cool too from a tourist standpoint. I have a bud that lives on Holden too, so I go there sometimes. Also have a friend up in Wilmington, so I spend a lot of time in that area. We'll go race go-karts at the Ocean Isle track this year!

      Also, I'm about to pick up some Neuspeed Sport springs as the drop is only supposed to be an inch to an inch and a half. You seem to be like me in that you don't want to slam the car. I do want a bit of a low and these seem to be a good fit. A couple buds have them and it's subtle. Some of these guys who know more may have some more info on them, but they may be worth looking into when you get back to it.

      the problem you have is mainly your wheels with their ET of 35, that whats getting in the way of your drop. That's why you had the issues when you put your springs on the first time. If you really want to keep those wheels that's cool, all you have to do is get the right tire size, the stock size you're running is too much... 215/40/18 or 205/40/18 is what you need that and probably some minor fender work in the front.

      yeah but that new bridge is so much better lol. i have family in calabash and holden beach as well And i love wilmington, especially over myrtle beach. i love the downtown part of wilmington, ive always liked places like that. and go karts are always awesome lol, i used to go there when i was younger.

      and sounds good, post some pics when you get them, i want to see the drop because im probably going to be buying some lowering springs fairly soon and want to know exactly what to get that will fit my car (i dont really feel like doing any fender work)

      oh yeah i know, but these tires still have a lot of tread on them, so im atleast going to run them until they are out and then i'll get a different set

      or you could sell the tires and make some money off them... tires usually last a couple of years so its hard telling how long you will have to wait... you could sell them and get like 75-100 per tire, especially if they are in good condition. you would just need to find out the tread depth (just get checked at local tire shop) then find out how much they are new and then decide on a price. Some tire shops (especially discount tire) will take tires in on trade and give you credit, but you would definitely get more if you sell them yourself

      finally changed the oil today. used castrol syntec (now it's called edge) 5w-40.

      Here's a pic of the downpipe installed and the resonator delete:





      My next mod is officially going to be coilovers, so i wont be updating this thread until i get them. nothing else important really going on. i'll be aligning my tires soon and swapping out the muffler for a normal one with either 2 tips or 1 bigger oval tip...not sure yet, but that's all i have planned for now.

      I think the best way to go would be the dual tips, they look classy as hell

      It is hard to pull off a single tip on these cars. Honestly, a little biased here, but I love the AWE Tuning cat-back because you can choose where the tips sit. The tips are removable and therefore adjustable. If you want the to poke out more, done. If you want them staggered, done. If you want them sunk in, done.

      Just a tip.
