      Casper, I'm completely ignorant when it comes to airbags (it's never been my thing), but that looks like a quality setup. I'd love to check it out in person some time and learn more about it. I love the wheels. They look a lot like the HRE 505s.

      TLud If I can ever make it to an EAG meet you will get to see it. Maybe at the CLVW show if I don't make the next meet. Any plans on going to sowo?

      The trunk is going to change probably. The trunk in the 4 door is a few inches shorter then my 2 door gti was and the sub box protruded further then I expected so it forced us to have to modify a few things. If any of you have pulled all the foam and spare out, you have seen that there really isn't much room at all to work with. The tank is going to be repainted soon.

      Lol it's always an adventure ordering from bagyard/through ort. When I got mine through a group buy a few years back there was a huge flame thread about the service from ort and delays from bagyard. Gl to ya man bug the hell out of Andrew!! In the end I promise it's worth the wait!! I couldn't be happier with mine!! Even though it took nearly 5 months from order date to delivery.

      You should space the rear out a little. To match the fronts

      Thanks for posting pics of the bag setup. I had never seen how people installed that stuff.

      Looks great!

      Same things here. But from from Bag Riders. Don't care yet since I don't have the car but hopefully it's soon. Need to order my rears.

      They are actually very close as they are. I plan to camber the rear in and throw some spacers on when I can find time. As it sits now the rear barely clears the fenders with an assist from the tires. I don't want to poke in the rear as I can't fathom trashing fenders on a 40k car... My 15k gti was a different story...

      Car looks absolutely beautiful. I sent you a message on FB not sure if you got it or not but the thread answered my questions. I want to get my rear down a little (ss5's and dcups) so I think I might have to run no top cup. Might switch to bagyards down the road.
