      Post pics. Looking for a slight drop but want to keep the same ride. Maybe a little firmer...

      Pics from an angle would be useful too.
      Those rims are Tsw Vortex 245/45/19 and i will be getting spacers maybe 8mm or 12mm not sure yet and I will be painting it gloss black during the winter time.
      When I bought the rims the sales person said it will stick out a bit and i was like ok cool , but when I installed it at home it look like it was in half an inch.

      Installed weatherstripping. My 2010 had it and when I inquired as to the strip not being there on the'12, it basically came down to cost cutting...

      That looks sweet - any rubbing at all and are you running any spacers too?

      Cleaned it up and snapped a couple pics. The springs settled quite a bit from when I initially installed them.





      comparison: Stock height (with 4 wheels and tires in the trunk) vs B&G Springs

      Are you running 19s? I thought BG springs went lower then that.

      Purchased the weather stripping at Autozone for around $14. Going to clean the motor this weekend and see how it holds up...

      Nice. I'm still not sure about having red calipers on a white Tig though, I'm leaning more towards black at the moment. Any more shots from the side in bigger resolution showing both wheels so I can get a different look at the calipers please?

      Nice . What tints have you got on the back? Lamin-X? If so what shade are they gun smoke, or smoked?

      Charcoal, and I brought it to a pro as some of the angles are a bit difficult to work with. But, I think they came out pretty well.

      19x9 Rotiform SNA. The B&G's are rated to lower the Tig 1.6" on all 4 corners. Seems like that is pretty close to accurate. Might actually be a little more in the front....

      I bought a used grill and I made it into this, took me about 10 hrs to do this.
      here's a picture of it from before and after.
      The inner frame is flat black and the outer frame is gloss black with blue pearls.

      We traded our 2010 White Gold Metallic Highline (that made the term "lemon" seem like an understatement)...



      ...for a Candy White 2012 Highline



      Hopefully better luck with Tiguan #2.

      I added 20mm ECS spacers on the rear wheels, and reflashed my ECU to APR's Stage I software yesterday.. So far so good.

      I required 47mm extended bolts so that the spacers would fit correctly.. I have stock 16" wheels which I had painted to match the exterior.



      I'll try and get some pics today of the new stance. I'm thinking of ordering a set of 10mm spacers for up front now.
