      make sure you guys use like usps/ royal mail .. and use as much bubble wrap packing or one of you might be unhappy when it arrives

      you might get r@ped by ups fedex and all those other shippers

      Thats the biggest problem unfortunately. What about DHL? http://www.dhl-usa.com/en/express/sh..._online32.html
      They also have insurance it seems. But in all honesty I would expect to get it with some damage since its so large.

      keep in mind most of the rear bumpers on ebay uk are pretty F**ked up..

      im so mad i had the chance to buy one off a guy locally for dirt cheap years ago and i passed because im an idiot.

      so here's a little update...

      last weekend I started installing the r32 brake setup only to find out that the rear brakes i sourced were actually off of a GLI which uses the same rotor and caliper but the carriers are different. I had to undo the corner i started on and source out the correct carriers.

      Just an FYI for the 180 tt quattro guys looking for a cheap brake upgrade... mk4 R32, MK1 TT 3.2 and MK1 TT 225 all use the same brake calipers, carriers and rotors which are 10" vented and are direct swap on a 180 quattro.

      on another note... i finally picked up my new wheels and split them last night to strip and repolish the lips and discovered something neat ...

      the 18x10 and 18x8.5s have different centre sections with different offsets, so I swapped the centres and ended up with more visible dish in the rear and less in the front. this also changed the final ETs which is easily corrected by swapping adapters front to rear.

      front and rear with original centres (note the wheels basically look the same aside from width)


      front and rear with swapped centres


      i'm really digging this stagger

      when I shipped my set of TT RSIIs from london last year, I used Parcelforce.



      The exterior boxes were beat-up pretty well, but no damage to the wheels due to double boxing plus foam. Shipping thru Parcelforce was about 10-15% cheaper than fedex, ups, dhl but not cheap by any means (approx 350gbp for 4x wheels as I recall). Parcelforce picked them up from the sellers house, shipped to US and handed them off to the USPS who inturn delivered them to my front door. Shipping was quick too..about 7-10 days from london to dallas.

      cheers

      i chemically stripped the clearcoat off 2 of the lips and doing the other 2 tonight.

      it's going to be a long day tomorrow... doing the .:R brakes all around in the morning and polishing/reassembling the wheels in the afternoon... if i can get everything together, i'm going to get the tires swapped in the afternoon

      so stoked to see the finished look

      .:R brakes are on





      they're still being bedded in... but the brake feel is really nice, they stop hard and look a hellavulot better than the stock 9"/12" setup.

      Hey quick question... I have a set of Red GLI rear calipers for my TT 225 Q that I was going to swap in to match my red porsche calipers... Are you saying that I need to run the GLI carrier as well to fit them?

      Since the GLI solid rear beam is different than the IRS of the TT/R32, I believe the caliper is the same but the carriers are different.

      correct. GLI/TT 225/R32 rear calipers are the same.

      you must use carriers from a AWD model to fit on a TT quattro or GLI carriers on a FWD TT

      rolled easily..., did it ghetto style with a bat, having air is nice to be able to adjust the height of the car to get the right angles with the bat to roll the fenders flat

      took the wheels apart today and polished the lips.

      i used the following procedure
      wet sanded (WD40 instead of water)
      - 600 grit
      - 800 grit
      - 1000 grit
      - 1500 grit
      - mothers metal polish
      - autoglym HD wax

      and i'm very happy with the results
