      @stingme

      Thanks. In the MKVI section a guy waxed his paint a few times and just sprayed it no masking. Turned out great. Plus you can use a cotton ball and alcohol to prep the badge.

      @huss

      No you look good.

      Don't worry about it. I sold it and bought this at a huge price difference. My wallet is happy and my racecar (MX-5) fund is happy.

      I will be honest stock it is pretty good, not OMG WOW, but once I get into fixing the things that bother me all will be will. God is it a monster truck... What kills me is I love the stock wheels, but they are 17x7, which makes the tires look like balloons!

      Lol me and p-shop?

      I got some MS Paint skillz

      Oh and there are two sets of those Merc wheels on Vortex right now with active threads. I will wait a bit to see what else is out there, but those would be nice.

      I am leaning towards a lot of thin spokes just like that Merc wheel or Superleggras.

      The kid at the Chick-fil-a drive thru today was "checking" out the Beetle. He probably was trying to find flower stickers or a stick family on the back glass.

      Lol how much loser.

      Test fitted my LM's. I do not clear the brakes (I already new that), but I am nearly touching the shock . Wheels are 18x9 ET40. I use a minimum of a 5mm spacer to clear the brakes, but I didn't have any handy.







      I got bored and had some left over caliper paint when I had to repaint my GTI calipers. Wheel cleaner stripped off some paint on the GTI. I plan on painting them Gold later. It really depends on the wheels.

      Microphone foam over the air pump hose with a zip tie securing the foam.







      According to Consumer Reports my car has crappy drum brakes in the rear.




      Watch out for the dealer leaving your shipping blocks on and your access panels loose.

      ^ Shot a iPhone video of my intake before my exhaust goes on today.

      Hi-
      Just curios what intake and exhaust model numbers you are using. Also have you seen much of an increase in miles per gallon?

      I'm still waiting on actaul bolt on intakes before I go that direction.
