that GLI is sick azfuk!!!!! imo though, bags are for kids that grew up watching PIMP MY RIDE and coilovers are for the BIG BOYS with BADASS TOYS......
but that GLI is tastefully done
Lol, but anyways, to each their own! Like I said, I'm not against either. And you wouldn't be either if you've ever had bags.
And a quick update:
Guess what I just received from FedEx like 10 minutes ago? Hell yes.
And this is sort of what my room looks like..that's because the intercooler and stage 3+ kit are in the garage ..
And now there are even more boxes in my room, lol..
There's nothing like that moment when you drive up to somewhere, park the car, and just slam it on the floor...and then everyone around looks over and they are all like . haha..
And thanks Jon!
Oh you'll see them soon enough, soon enough! I haven't even opened the box yet..too busy at work. Once I get home or if I have some time during the day, I'll take them out and look them over..and then they will most likely be taken apart right afterwards..time for baller status.
scroll down its so crazy you can see them moving

And quick update, looks like my wheels should go on today! I'm going down to the tire shop right after work to get the tires mounted. This is exciting!

And the new wheels are going to be test fit today as well, but then i'm taking them apart this weekend..time for a baller makeover. hehehehe
Updateeeeeee: Porsche Twists, like a boss.
I got the tires mounted today, and put the wheels on the car. Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel. I think the color just isn't working for me. I'm taking them off as soon as I have some time and painting them again. I don't know. Jon, if you're reading this, I think it's going to look better on your car because it's red. So yeah, I'm painting them again! lol.. Anyways, on with the goods, right?
Some with the stock wheels just for the hell of it:
Twists (pictures don't do the color justice..it makes them look like plain silver..):
This is how you haul shi**:
Overall though, I love the wheels. I think with the right color, they will look sick on this car. And mark my words: I'm getting these 10's to tuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And another thing....The inner lip on the rear is even closer than my LM's! I didn't get a good look, but they look uncomfortably closer to the strut than the LM's..I can barely fit my pinkey. Fitment like a baller.
And a teaser of my new wheels...Can anyone guess what wheels they are? I think it's pretty easy to figure out..maybe that's because I know what they are. :p Nick, don't even....
The white bolts definitely have to go...they're hideous. And just about everything else is getting their own treatment..
Here's the picture...I'll have more up later when I start taking them apart..
And to answer your question Jon, yes. I went 15mm all the way around. Final offset in the rear comes to 50 and final offset in the front comes to 37 i think...I got the H&R's for 149 a set from UroTuning.. Shipping was quick and turn around was very efficient. I'm very happy with their customer serivce, as well as the H&R adapters. They're not as pretty as let's say, 42DD's adapters, but they sure are very well built! I love them.
And I'm sort of worried about the inner lip hitting the strut, but I think there is justttttttt enough clearance...it's whatever! And I want to get those 10's to tuck! I will be so happy if I can get them to tuck...I have to!!!!!
