      I wanted to really dial in the offset, but there isn't much room for play with the 10s. And I wanted to play it safe with the fronts. I paid 335 shipped. I just went with them because they were cheaper than the HR after shipping. Eveywhere online had ridiculous shipping on the HR, plus I have heard great things about Adaptec.

      That's done weird stuff going on with your airlifts...I know I had to sand the paint off the bottom of mine to get it to fit and seat in the knuckle...it was never going in without doing that I would def hit up the guys at airlift

      That's true..you don't have much room to play with the 10's..if any at all. that sounds about right..i might have paid like a hair more, but it was right about there. I too have heard great things about them..I'm sure they will do just fine!

      It really is..I'm going to try calling them or shooting them an email maybe Monday, and we'll see what happens..

      Fitment is perfect, and the rims go perfectly with the gli.

      Nice car mister.

      Looks like my HRE's would fit it nicely as well : http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...1#post77654359

      lol oh dang, that was definitely me!!! were you driving the GLI? i'm always around there...and i always end up parking by pizza rustica...that must have been late as hell, no? haha...last time i was there until 5 in the morning




      And a quick morning update:

      Got some more goodies yesterday. I'll post pictures up when I get home today - didn't have time yesterday. I also ordered some LED's for the DRL, thanks to NJA Pilot for the help on those. I can't stand those ugly orange-yellowish lights we have...they completely take away from the car. Now I have to figure out something to do with those sidemarkers...they seriously irritate me...I am almost on the brink of opening up my headlights and painting them or something! Seriously! Every time I look at the car my eyes are drawn straight to those ugly sidemarkers.

      And I also got a chance to drive NJA Pilot's MK6 DSG GLI with nothing but a stage 1 tune, and still, wow! What a noticeable difference over stock. It's ridiculous how slow my car is right now, haha. It was probably like a 3 minute drive, yet I could still feel the difference. Nice meeting you by the way Claude!

      Anyways...also got a text from Mike over at USP, and he told me the head will be done by this week! I really hope it actually is. If so, that is a pretty quick turnaround! I'm excited!!! Clutch should be ordered today, and after that I'll order the rods, rod bearings, gaskets, and whatever else I might need for the build. Still haven't decided anything on my gauge set-up, either. Nor have I decided anything about the meth set-up. Maybe I'll wait a little on that. We'll see.

      And some quick phone snapshots from the other day:





      I have to get these to tuck. I am going to. I must. I must. I must.

      I just noticed something...I'm on a &#*$@*$ mad man online shopping spree for parts. Just ordered some OEM goodies, including that much needed ESP button!!!! I still can't get over the fact that VW removed that from the car. Ridiculousness.

      and then added them the next model year? yeah.... it blows. too bad they dont even offer the proper button (though im holding out w/ the 2013's they'll have no choice but to offer a center mount traction button or push-start button)

      btw... get them mirrors yet?

      it is, too bad! makes no sense..

      and as for the mirrors...i got this email from them this week..think it was yesterday. very upset to say the least dude. they had told me it shipped, was probably stuck at customs, now they don't know what's going on. i gave them one more week..if nothing, i'm going to just get a refund. i hate being like this, but i've waited for too long. who knows when i will receive this? if i do. i've heard a lot of good about them, and it's probably not their fault...but come on, you know..

      here was their email response from my inquiry about order status:



      And on a side note, let's all smile and be happy. I got more parts in!

      FFE positive engagement shifter bushings





      And this bad boy:
















      Peloquin Differential and bearing and ARP differential bolt kit. This has to be one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. hahaha...The quality of this thing looks and feels amazing!!!! Can't wait to put her to work!

      And aside from that, called up ECS today, got some more little goodies coming in the mail soon enough.



      And apart from car related stuff. Took the night and headed down to Miami to watch my hometown team, BOSTON, kick some ass! Nothing better than watching your hometown team beat one of their biggest rivals out of town, in the playoffs! Hahaha...Everyone was hating on us when we arrived at the stadium with Celtics jerseys...and I didn't here shiiiiiaaatttt on the way out...wonder why? Anyways, had a fun night! Can't wait until game 6 tomorrow!

      Love your car <3 and I do believe its the center caps throwing your wheels off maybe if you can get silver ones to match the rest of the wheel? I think that will make your car look that much better imo

      Thanks man. and i think you're right...if i don't sell the wheels soon, i am just going to paint the center caps to match the wheels, or paint everything another color.

      And on a side note, I'm leaving to Montreal in a few hours! Woohooo! Time for some F1 racing! Should be back at the beginning of next week, so no updates during the weekend.

      I literally just received an email from TM Tuning, about 15 minutes ago. They said the mirrors will ship by the end of next week, confirmed. I just emailed them back to ask when I should expect them delivered to me. Let's see how this goes. This is the last chance I'm giving them. It's taken too long already. Ridiculous.

      And no way, definitely not cheering on that fool!

      I was thinking...anyone else find it funny that all your friends and people around you suddenly become fans of whatever car you get as soon as you get it. I had the Audi, everyone was Audi this, Audi that. Now I have the Volkswagen, and everyone is like VW this, VW that. Posers. hahahahahaha

      Update! I'm back from Canada. What an amazing weekend! I had a freakin' blast. The race was awesome! Not only did I get to see the F1 racing, but I also got to watch the Porsche GT3 Cup series as well as the Ferrari Challenge, plus lots of sick cars, and I got to have some fun in Montreal..what a sick city! Last time I went I was too young to remember anything, so yeah, lol..Anyways, I have a bunch of updates to post, including some pictures from the weekend. Here is what I have for now:

      Installed some DRL LED lights. Thanks to NJA Pilot for the reccomendation. He got the same ones and so far they seem to be working great. I absolutely hate the stock orange-ish lights on these cars...blaaa!

      stock drl's


      these are the led's i used...the bulb on the right is the stock one..


      new led on the right..


      stock drl


      stock vs led


      both led's in


      it's a small mod but makes a huge difference! i love them. looks way better. now, i must do something about that sidemarker!!!! can't take it anymore!!!1

      and a quick update on the Work's...just started taking them apart today...got two of the wheels unbolted..but i stopped there - gym time.



      these white bolts are disgusting..so ugly.








      can't wait to refinish these. i'll be updating this thread a bit more this week! i received a whole bunch of OEM goodness in the mail today. Small things, but nice additions. I'll post up as soon as I have some more time. I also ordered a second set of trim for the car. Great things are about to happen.

      with an 11" rear, and 20 or 25mm spacers, that's close to like an extra inch of poke...oh hell no. haha.

      anyways, i should be out of work early today..if i can get out early, i'm going to hopefully get those wheels completely apart and get working on them. and i think i'm putting the twists up for sale. anyone interested?
