      I realized no matter how far you park away from every car someone is going to ding it.

      I had them on my GTI before hand, so I just carried them over. They looked much better with CSG than they do with RB. But still not to bad, with RB, I think polished would look better.

      or black, to tie in with all the black bits.


      I know they're not the same wheels, but the black looks wicked on the RB.

      Agreed, I eventually want to get some black Neuspeed RSe14's.

      I've seen painted black interlagos, didn't really look as good IMHO.

      What's worse is when you do it yourself. The front is so low and just out, I've already scrapped the **** out of the underside of the front splitter on parking barriers and curbs. Meh. It's no trailer queen.

      Well, I took her out for my weekend drive to brunch and I'm stationary in the right turn lane. Pow! Someone hits me from behind in a Scion TC. My rear passenger wheel took the brunt of it due to the angle that I was at, but there is some relatively minor damage to the rear quarter panel. And major damage to my soul.

      And to think, I was going to be able to go a year at least without an incident at the rate I was driving it. I envy all of you that still have yours in tip top shape! Good luck, it's a mean world out there!

      For a second I thought that was my car. That is until I noticed the front plate mount.

      Got these bishes today, and I will be installing them later today.
      Hope I will have a perma-grin after today.

      Oh, never thought the DP would be this heavy.

      They called me Thursday, before flashing, and asked me how many stalks do I have on the left side of the steering wheel.

      Have you just tried clearing all codes and then going for a drive? They should all reset after a few minutes of driving.

      You guys rock!
      They all cleared just driving a few feet.
      It's not very impressive w/ the stock DP still on, but I can't wait to see what happens with the APR
      DP in it's place.

      Some dumba$$ did that same thing to my last car. I park WAY away from anyone for fear of feeling the need to hurt someone if they ding my R.

      How much is it costing you?

      Is a full hood repaint required?
