looking good brother, what coils did you go with?
Wow, alot of haters. Like I said before, I'm not building some cookie cutter VW to make every other person out there love. I put this thing together how I want it and how I like it. You guys can keep hating all you want, its not your car, it's a message forum, and I don't know you so I have no reason to appease your needs, or your interests.
here's another photo of my DUB. on 18" wheels. Flame on.
As far as the 18" wheels go, it handles really well. It's snappy and it's planted, but it will be alot better once coilovers are on and dialed in with some sway bars and strut braces. anyways, thanks for participating in this thread
The car looks sweet. I'm not a fan of wheels larger than 16" on ANY application, but you've managed to pull them off nicely.
My only real beef is the tailpipe. the way it's angled down seems like it was an afterthought.
Is that the original exhaust? If no, try to find a way to maybe bend/tuck it up a bit, or do the laws in Canadia prevent you from altering it from factory specs?
Either way, great job on the car.

if you aren't already on the local forums there is www.dasdubbers.org and www.clubveedub.com
the design of the rims isn't my favorite but i think the size of the wheels look boss , good for you for doing what you want to it!
if you're looking for any constructive input/criticism however, if it were my car - the proper trim/flare combo and work on the tailpipe a little bit and its lookin real snazzy
...and oh god at those cut coil-overs, i can only imagine the dink that does that crap and drives around on our roads.... makes ya wonder!
Do you have any trim for sale perhaps? I want the left door trims, i also need cabriolet headlights for my quad euro swap that i cant find anywhere
nice pictures! those ones really grab the color alot better than in the 'whatd you do to your mk2today' thread
if you have any paint leftover you should consider hitting the bottoms of your bumpers or for sure at least the strip along the bottom of the grill, may be surprised at how much that can really tie the whole car together!
unfortunately i do not have any trim for sale, there are a couple mk2s being parted out in the near area though sign up on the dasdubbers site and check out the classified section you might get lucky! fat trim on the sides would really fit well ! i haven't been to pick and pull for a while but you might be able to find some lights or trim there as well if you haven't already looked
idles at 2000 and runs super lean hey? if you want any help or suggestions feel free to post or pm more descriptive details about everything and would be glad to try and see if we can come up with any helpful ideas
