      Wait... there's an air thread???

      I've just spent the last 25 min scrolling back thru every thread in this forum looking for info.

      I'm trying to learn as much as I can b/c I am seriously considering it for my car, but I don't know anyone that has it. Nor have I ever ridden in one.

      No problem abeR! I didn't take that photo anyway. Bluewater put it on their facebook. The rear will be about an inch and a half lower than the photos but I won't be on the frame... Not for now maybe down the road.

      question, does the front need a notch or does it already sort of have one? My buddy said the mkv R32s already had a sort of had one(i wasnt aware of this) and since our car is basically the same chasis it seems to reason ours would too. but i dont really know since i havent looked under the mkv

      At this point that would be a question for bluewater. I will however take tons of photos and let everyone know what comes in contact where etc. I know they did NOT notch the front. Not sure about the rear yet.

      heres a quick shot in the driveway with the trusty iphone. The rear is not quite as low as I would like it to be but Bluewater got it as low as possible without changing the bags and while still running a top cup (so I can drive the **** out of it still!). Wheels should be here in a few weeks.

      Wheels are shipping from Memoryfab today and the car is back at Bluewater to finish up the trunk and work out a few kinks. Also having them do Stage 1+ while it is down there... I am impatient haha.

      Here are the new wheels.

      I can think of few situations where they wouldn't be the best choice! Can't wait to see them on the car. I've had a semi-chubb for these wheels since I got into VWs.

      Got the car back from Bluewater yesterday. Had them do a United Motorsports stage 2 tune with an EvoM intake and APR HPFP feels great but I want MOAR!!! haha. Will be doing the full stage 2 possibly 2+ soon I think. Trunk setup is done here is a quick cell snap of it. I am taking out the rear bumps today to get it a bit lower so I will take some proper photos this week.



      Still need to shim the tank mount so it sits even and polish the tank (yay fun). But Bluewater did a great job and I would recommend them to anyone!

      Pulled the rear bumps and dust covers off and got it about an inch and a half lower! I need to notch the passenger side as it sits about 3/4" higher at the moment but looks awesome now can't wait to get the wheels on!
