      Front notched. I might end up putting some adjustable endlinks on but not sure yet... the bumper is already on the ground lol.

      Huge thanks to Gabe and Andrew at Bluewater. They have been great and super helpful throughout the whole process.

      Waiting for APR to come out with their stage 3 kit so we can get this ****er moving!





      stole this from bluewaters Instagram

      I dont have any. But gabe (maybe he can chime in) said that it was not the same as a normal gti (or mk5) we had to cut closer to the bolt so he had to gusset it a bit more than usual.

      It sits pretty uneven... I didnt plan on cutting but it was really bothering me. I would suggest getting a wheel with lower offset and less stretch on the tire so it sits on the tire before it gets low enough to hit the axle.

      this isn't a look for me, but I appreciate Luke's passion and attention to detail.
      this is a nice project and fun to follow.

      good job and look forward to seeing more.

      Was it sitting uneven when you had the stock wheels on?

      No the tires were holding it up I believe. It was a good inch lower on the left with the new wheels
