      That's an awesome looking black on black combo. Planning to go for dark coloured wheels for my 1.8TSI black body too. But gonna hand it to you for the awesome setup...

      This car is perfect. I love mine but yours is scary lol.

      Thanks guys!!!

      I'll grab some more pics soon, I just took some quick ones yesterday to show u what the car looked like

      On a side note, ST coils are AMAZING. I just had a baby 2 weeks ago and didn't want a harsh ride. They ride like OEMZ minus the boat affect and body roll. Couldn't have asked for better, thumbs up to ST

      Absolutely perfect! Any fender mods to pull off that width in the back?

    13. 07-22-2012 09:46 AM #13
      None

      Only required some balls to try it out lol

      Nice looking ride. I'm working with solowerks and am having a issue with ride height. Yours looks about perfect. Where do you have your height adjustments set? I don't want ghetto but need the gap gone........

      Your car just gave me a huge boner. That is one hot Passat.

      I got 7 threads left in front and about 10 in the back

      I think Anakin Skywalker would much prefer this to the questionable "Vader" Passat done by West Coast Customs. Nice.

    18. 07-25-2012 02:53 AM #18
      Can you try one of your 10's with the 245's in the front and let us know if it fits? You got some balls doing the rear in 10's lets see if we can take it further and a front 10 is possible?

      Really nice dude. I want to go for a look like that, lower, bigger VW or Audi wheels, maybe O.Z's, but I am so afraid to lower my car because I live in NYC, and I travel a lot. I take road trips with sometimes 3 maybe 4 people and a trunk full of luggage. I have broke oil pans before and its not fun. My neighbors driveway is still stained almost 10 years later.

      JJS : I actually work on the road ( rep ) and its fine, you should see our roads in Montreal lol, brutal!

      Just don't go as aggressive in the rear and you can go lower

      Greetings fellow Vdubs! This is my first time posting. TEXAS2LO, your ride looks nice. I had a similar idea but I backed down when it came time to put up. I tried to attach a couple of pics of my ride but can't figure out how. Any advice?

      good lord....that is right on point.

      I traded in a Mk IV R32 on a Black SEL Premium TDI last week. What you did, tint + drop + wheels is his is pretty much exactly what I pictured the potential of my recent acquisition. Thanks for doing it first and sharing, so that I know just how good it will look. I am dying to give the new ride some character to go with the daily driver practicality.


      BTW...I am so stealing one of your pictures to use on my facebook page.

      Does any of this void the warrantee, lets say if my transmission blew, and I lowered my car, would they still fix it?

      Thanks guys

      Usually suspension work will void suspension warranty. Meaning if you blow a tie rod or wtv, then they can judge its because of your lowering suspension .... But has nothing to do with engine. NOt in any cases that I've heard unless your dealer are really ass holes lol

      BTW this was my last ride, that I just sold before buying this Passat

      Then I shouldn't have a problem with my dealer. My father is good friends with the owner of the VW/Infiniti/Nissan dealership so I think even if I dropped it and bent an outer tire rod they would replace it. Either that or they don't want my annoying ass around. I already got them to give me the 2013 trunk hinge covers for nothing. All I have to do is get my lazy ass down there/

      I like your style. The Passat looks bad ass, and the brown Jetta was proper as hell. Was that one bagged because that looks a too low?

      Nice man, makes me want to get a new Passat. Your Jetta was bad ass too!

      car looks sick. if those rims were silver I'd be all over them.

      Awesome.

      20" wheels were too big for the B5/B5.5/B6, but look perfect on the B7's larger body.

      I finally decided on some wheels for mine and they are on backorder until September. I guess I'll ride on crappy hankooks a little longer.
