      Looks good. One question since it looks like you're going with air on it. Since B6 coilovers will work on B7s, in theory, B6 airride should work as well, right? ECS sells a B6 air ride kit for a pretty good price and I've been thinking about it. Also, is there anything in the way that would stop a B7 from being low?

      Thanks. I'm going to be using my air ride I had on my MKV which is compatible with B6's. I mean if you want to be safe you can wait till my install is complete. I'm hoping to start it this weekend and be fully complete next week. If the suspension is the same as MKV, MKVI, and B6 then the only thing that will keep you up is the passenger side axle where you would need to notch the frame.

      Thanks. The wheels aren't for everyone I'm not one to rock reps so I'm happy with these for now.

      On a side note, I'm not trying to offend any of the people running reps. I just personally don't like using replica wheels.

      At first I didn't like the white on white, but the more I look at it the more I start to like lol.

      +1 for not being stock

      Once it's low I'm sure it will look pretty bitchin.

      Thanks. I personally think Helios are one of VWs best looking factory wheels.

      Thanks man. It's definitely a "boat". You get all your stuff straightened out?

      Air house 2's in the rear and finally got my Koni's in. It helped. As far as the fronts, I bought a set of xl's to try and see if that makes a dif. We'll see.
      Just dropped my wheels off, so i'll be part of the white on white club

      Looking to bag my TDI, what setup do you have? How is the ride? Any pics of it all the way up? It looks awesome!

      nice, good work. I just don't like the way these cars look bottomed out in the rear from the side it is weird to me.
