      If anything goes wrong I will kick down Chris's door.

      What do you guys think about rocking 18x8.5 ET35 with 215/40/18's?



      Car would be 24" FTG coils, or on bags if I went with these.

      Put in a K&N drop in filter. Ignore that part number. Typically I have run intakes, but for now I just wanted to keep it simple with a drop-in, plus I only open my hood for preventative maintenance, not for show.

      Tomorrow I plan on shaving the baffles in the "turbo muffler" aka one of the pipes going to the turbo, I cannot remember which one it is, intake? But I know where and how to do it.

      ^ While prepping my SW for its first detail I noticed this... a frame bracket. Awesome!



      ^ My DIY foam gun in action.



      ^ Clean.



      ^ Finally finished de-badging. For some reason that was the toughest one I have ever done. Took a hair dryer, finger nails, credit card, and a ton of Goo Gone to get off.



      ^ On the drive to pick up my reward (Beer) this gem came on.



      ^ Part number for the K&N filter. BTW big noticeable difference with this motor. I live in the mountains and I have awkward hill climbs at low speeds 2nd gear under the power band, and before it would lug, now no problem.



      ^ My friendly assistant.

      Haha Rick Roll! You have to be careful with the rear plate... the screws they give to affix the plate to the bracket are TOO LONG (ask me how I know) and can damage the paint underneath - potentially making a hole in the sheet metal. Removing the Jetta was one of the first things I did as well.

      That must have been your dealer, or maybe they supplied those earlier on. Mine are really short.

      Thanks for the heads up.

      Gold calipers? Sure, why not.

      Currently tinting the front sidemarkers. I ordered some aerosol Candy White, that I will try out in a week or so.

      Gold calipers should look good.

      Painting the calipers is one of those things I've put off for so long...

      It isn't that bad, but I have done it a lot of times. I like to keep the paint fresh, including OEM colors (e.x. GTI).

      Still trying to pick out wheels...

      My #1 pick:



      They are on close out at Tire Rack in silver, but I would plasti-dip them black, maybe with a gold flake.

      I love mine. They are nice and light. If you can get a good deal on the wheels in silver and plasti-dip them for less than the regular price, you should definitely go for it. I think on a CW car, they would go well. Here's mine for reference:
