      blacked out the front and removed the badges....unfortunately I scratched up the rear when i was removing the emblems. So the truck will be getting shaved soon

      I was on a limited time schedule yesterday so I was only able to get the front coils in but the rears will be installed this weekend. The helpers are still in and its screwed all the way down. No finger gap , they dont rub at all but havent settled either. Wheels will be ordered next Friday, along with Euro Lights and trunk lip!

      looking good! You say you are ordering euro lights, want to sell your stock ones? I am looking to get another set of stock so I can re-do my retrofit in my current ones and not feel rushed in finishing so I can drive or maybe let me borrow them haha

      No offense to you. As what makes you happy is really all that counts for you.

      But just to clear this up.

      You took your rear emblems off so now your car looks like it was rear ended and the body shop did not put the emblems back on.

      You tinted your tail lights, so the available light output is cut by who knows how much, thus making it harder for cars behind you to see your tail lights.

      You lowered your car, thus cutting it's ground clearance by who knows much while you live in the far North East, where snow is not a possibility, but a fact of life.

      Hmmm. . . Cool. . . I guess. . . .

      Hey, as I said, not tryin to offend ya. Just posting my observations. Just tell me to go pound sand! lol

      Wow,

      I never knew modifying your car was so uncool.


      Car looks good OP, keep it up! Modifications are what keeps us apart from the crowd.

      I would hate to see another boring stock Jetta rolling the streets.
