and just for the hell of it...i've been wanting a set of these wheels ever since i had my s4. i just submitted an offer for a set...if they accept it, i have a new wheel projet coming my way not that i need it with the other 4 sets of wheels sitting in my garage, but i just couldn't resist. we shall wait for an answer.
and a side project my bro has been working on in our garage...this is going on another GLI, but it's actually my buddy's mk4. hopefully a full shoot following soon after we install these tomorrow and replace them for his super duper rashed up RC's! haha...
thursday bump. did a quick midnight shoot yesterday with my buddy's mk4 and my car.. nothing fancy, but i'll have some pics up later..
and i just ordered another set of wheels that i will be refinishing once they're in..hehe
this is the only one showing my mk6...and here are a few just so you guys can see how th wheels turned out...i think they look sick...and even better in person...stance is perfect IMO, too..
if anyone needs any wheels or anything like that painted locally, hit a brother up

update as of right now: my other set of wheels should be shipping out early next week. my trunk still needs to get painted. and i am still waiting on two other small parts that i ordered to arrive. it's nothing special, but damn it, i want my parts!
alright....i have come to a conclusion. I NEED MORE TIME. I never have any damn time to work on my car. It sucks...between work and the girlfriend and everything else, I never have any time. I would hate to make my mk6 jealous. She needs more love.
And on a side note. I have started funds for a BIG TURBO! BUTTTTTTTTTTTT.....now I am torn between going ahead with the big turbo and supporting mods vs. spending that money on a jet ski...what the hell do I do!?!?!?!?! What would you guys do?
As sick as it would be to have a 400+ whp MK6 on bags, it would be equally as fun to have a jet ski. I have already owned a bunch in the past, and I've got a boat right now, but damn..I really miss the jet ski! Living in South Florida makes it perfect for that kind of stuff too...and then when I think about it...big turbo is just going to get me into more trouble.
I am completely torn...WHAT THE HELL DO I DO?! lol..
I know man! Super difficult decision! Omg....
That's true..Florida is perfect for jet skis..and summer is right around the corner...I can always save up afterwards for a big turbo and all.....or my wedding that should be coming up soon
oh *$%#....what do I do? hahahaha.....At this exact moment, I am really leaning towards jet ski..I've already been to a couple dealers, and called some people...as soon as I find the right one, I will probably pull the trigger...and after that save up for big turbo....and if my girlfriend is reading this: don't worry babe, I got this.
Mine didn't find out about the air until a month later, when my uncle asked me about it right in front of her...then i try to change the subject and the bastard starts asking questions like how much it cost, how it works, and bla bla bla...there was no escape.
they really are maintenance whores, that's for sure..i've owned a few in the past..luckily i never had much trouble with them...and being in florida, you have to be even more careful, because of salt water..there are a few lakes around, but it's just not the same thing. and agreed, you definitely have to ride the piss out of those things..it's impossible not to. they are so damn tempting.
Firstly....that annoying noise that sounded like rubbing mentioned earlier in the thread? it's not the rear bags at all! It seems like it's on of the bushings, possible from the control arm. The nosie is coming from the passenger rear. I have no idea what the hell it is. Took it to USP, had them check it out. They can't figure it out either. It is obviously a bushing...but what the hell? What brand new car has bushings go bad like that all of a sudden. Makes no sense. I'm going to take it back there with more time and have them take another poke at it. The noise doesn't happen all the time..but when it does...irritates the hell out of me!
Secondly...just reached 4k miles a few days ago. Wow! it seems like just yesterday that I got this car. Can't believe it.
Thirdly..about time, right Patrick?
I pulled and rolled the fronts yesterday. Haven't gotten to the rears, and don't know if I wll either. The front once again lays frame. I missed hearing that "thump" of my frame hitting the ground when lowering the car. Well, now it's back again.
in progress...no, i didn't dent the fender!
and completed. sitting pretty once again.
doesn't give you the best idea because the car is sitting at a slant, but yeah..
And fourthly...for those of you that never saw it with stock wheels...
but..i think the only way to get them to tuck for sure is dialing in some negative camber, and then roll/pull...i would post up a picture but photobucket is flipping out on me...what the hell....
and that's true, we don't have to worry about the salt in the winter, but if you live right by the ocean, it's just as bad with the sea breeze, if not worse!
i had a friend that lived by a condo right on the beach...within like two or three years of owning the car, his passenger door literally rusted off the hinges...i'm sure that's nothing super common, or else no one would live by the beach...but, that sea breeze can be real nasty man..
thanks! hahahaha....next week it should be installed.
5:30 P.M. Friday afternoon edit: I will have it done on Monday.
