      Your car sucks!! It looks like my puke after a hard night of drinking and then eating cheap mexican food at 4am. You shouldn't be allowed to own cars....








































      jk! Do whatever you want dude. If it looks good to you, then keep it up. One thing though, lower it on some coils!
      You scuffed my Pumas!!

      The lamin-x on the fog lights is cloudy in the centers, so i think im just gonna buy more, sand the fogs, then do it again. Also i have a question. Does anyone know how to remove the thin red trim on the front grill? I need to touch it up a little from rock chips and i dont feel like getting red on any yellow/black paint.

      You probably didn't clean them enough and apply it right. The stuff is pretty pliable so you may be able to take them off and reuse them.

      As for the grille, all it takes is patience. I've take many out. Take the whole grille off.

      Hey Hockeypilot20,

      Just wanted to defend my decision to throw on the 17" wheels. I lived in Bergen County, NJ (home of some of the worst roads in America). I bought this car new and it came with the 18" Charlestons. They looked amazing, and the car's ride was awesome. Still, eventually, despite my best efforts to avoid as many potholes as I could, I began getting flat tires on a regular basis (especially during the winter when the roads are especially messed up). After countless replaced tires and a severely messed up ride because the wheels were became so bent, I found a good deal on the 17's that you have on your car. I bought them new from a VW dealer, and as I remember it the ride is almost as good as it was with the 18's. I also think they look good on the car. (I would never have put them on otherwise.)

      Anyway, I hope you enjoy the car. I hate that I had to get rid of it.

      have a problem, wonder if anyone knows how to help. in the engine bay, there is a fire blanket against the firewall and the top middle of it is starting to sag down (towards the intake piping). Does anyone know how to fix this?

      That makes you the worst driver in America. I have ridden on 19's and lowered and never had an issue. Owning these cars is not like owning a truck or SUV. It is a different driving style completely. Even at stock height, you have to avoid big bumps. Everyone says their roads are the worst. I also drive mine year round.

      Take it off. Not needed. I've had mine off of the GLI for almost two years and since July in the R.

      Yup. Worst excuse for not lowering a car and not having large wheels.

      And I lol'd hard. I PSUed it a while ago. First day I had the R I did it all.

      There are rumors what they are they for. Mostly, sound and heat insulation. However, when you take it off, you won't notice any difference. My paint hasn't peeled/faded, and nothing is louder.

      Just for a test I put it back on and it did muffle the intake whoosh and I took it back off and it did amplify the sound (but not a lot)

      All and if it sags like an old ladies titties..just take it off

      I'm just givin' you a hard time.
      Personally i liked the wheels better stock. when you said that you were powdercoating them i was hoping that you would of done just the inserts like this



      but whatever, you seem to be enjoying yourself, that's what it's all about

      Since you said this is only temporary, what wheels do you plan on goin' with to replace the Charlestons?

      sweet, as long as they're black

      Sawblades do look really sweet on lowered cars, though i have yet to see them looking amazing on a mkv jetta.... you should go for it! get some for dirt cheep, since they are easy to come by, and use your powdercoating connection to get them lookin' good. and if you end up not likin' how they look sell em for a profit.
