      Yes, an A5 Audi is awesome. Mk5 base model Jetta, meh, it's no Audi.

      ha, its ok busy life is busy, i know how it goes believe me. i did though! sounds/ runs amazing... but i'm having clutch engagement issues i wasn't having on the first install, so the motor/ trans is coming out one more time to give everything the once over.



      did you see the pic of it in its brand new shoes? haha lets just say 13's are low... too low for my bumpy driveway anyways.

      tires aren't as big as they look in these pics, very comparable to the 175/50 Sumis.. 6.5mm difference.

      Couldn't find a spacer/lugs locally. So I cranked the coils up and put the flakes back on.

      DD duties all week so I guess it will wait until next weekend.
