      vdub key stuff came.. amazing customer service.. awesome products.


      Here are a few.




      those seat pump inserts look soooo much better in person.. I showed my buddy and he said, "what that didn't come with the car?"

      look very clean and oem+++

      Fast shipping, great guys! Highly recommend!

      that's quite a bit of drama just for the wheels. guess that will make it just that much more awesome once they're in your hands

      I guess that's how I'm looking at it for now. Should have tires on the front two monday, then have the other tires mounted, by friday to throw em on.. I need an alignment so badly.. + winter tires ... I cant even do 70 without major vibration.

      Coils are max low right now. going to need to take out two perches to get lower. Will do that this weekend. Hopefully I'll get the front tires this week and I can get you guys some real pictures.

      Big moment for me. I've wanted white alphards for like 3 years now. Finally got em. Played or not.

      wheels look great! have you thought of maybe painting the part around the star white? that way it matches fully?

      I have. I did it on my previous wheels. The color didn't match very well so I'm a little against it right now. pic for reference.



      Idk. I kind of like the OEM centercap look. We'll see though

      Alphards turned out real nice! I like the side shot from the rear left wheel. Still tryin to get the passat back in order, just did motor mounts and tranny mounts as my pass side motor mount was completely effed. Smooth as new now with those and the whole front end replaced. Can't wait for eurowerks! Take care cheesehead!

      Car looks Great. Lovin' the look like Crazy! But i can't help think that the rear is missing something. Then it hit me. the rear tails! Ever thought about getting the Smoked .:R32 tails?
