      I've seen a few pics of people wit their wheels with like....severely slanted camber angles...what's up with that? I would think that would most definitely not be good on the car....not to mention it just looks soooo stupid.

      People on here usually add camber to fit their wheels without rubbing. It doesn't hurt the car in any way. That is your opinion.

      I think you hit a nerve with these people, you get a 9/10 for not including something about lowering.

      Idk I just don't get it? To me it looks stupid. I mean if you like it go for it, but im more into lowering it just enough to where I can still drive it aggressively. I prefer performance over...whatever the hell you wanna call that...

      Oh and to all of you who wanna be a bunc of big mouths and cry because someone has a different opinion, grow up. That's he great thing about cars, you can do what you want to them, and if someone doesn't like it, whatever. Who cares? It's their opinion.

      this is precisely why it's hard for me to stomach the mk5 forum. car and forum have been around for 7 years and it's still dominated by ignorant noobs and threads like this.

      Thread serves no purpose. It\'s a rant about your opinion, it\'s not solving anything.

      I was asking what the point of it was and if it did damage to the car? I was just curious. I didn't know I was gonna get jumped by a bunch of immature people who are so single minded that no one else is allowed to have an opinion.

      No, you weren't just asking. You ended by saying "its sooo stupid." If you would have left that out you wouldn't have gotten "jumped" and received a more proper list of answers.

      Try to not be an idiot.

      I don't know what made you an ignorant noob. My guess would be lack of research, knowledge and thought.

      Wow. Seriously you guys are a bunch of babies. Really makes me ashamed to be a volkswagen fan when so many of them are making such a big deal out of something so small. Who cares? We all like cars here right? So who cares if I think one thing is stupid? If you like it, go for it. I'm not gonna give a damn. Doesn't mean I won't voice my opinion though.

      not only this, as properly dialed negative camber can be extremely beneficial to handling.

      So keep your opinion to yourself. Why come on to a board knowing that the majority camber their wheels, and then trash what they do to their cars? Just keep your opinion to yourself. That's like going to a party and telling everyone they are idiots for drinking. Just a douchey thing to do.
