      Got it back from the tinting shop! 35% Llumar Charcoal film, and since someone will probably ask it was $275.

      Didn't see this thread before. What wheels did you go with. I think the gold color will look the best. BTW I saw someone with color matched roof rails in person, it look'd sweet. Here's a link

      I think the JSW is far cooler then the Beetle. Especially when done right. That's me tho.

      no go on the rack, because I would just scratch the hell out of it. I haven't bought a rack yet for it, but I will soon. I mountain bike and kayak.

      Thanks!

      Ok! Still on the fence with wheels... Personally I think a lot of wheels only look good in certain specific instances. So for this I need to find a wheel that matches its specs and character. I am on coils, decently low, but not on air, so a lot of wheels are out like LM's.

      I might just go with the standard OZ Superleggras, but why not just get Sparco's for much, much cheaper?

      So the battle continues.

      I lowered the front some more after getting a full tank of diesel to help level it all out. I figure a full tank of diesel and nothing in the rear of the car would put the rear at a typical ride height/ weight.

      Yeah, I am not feeling that color matched roof rack either. At least on CW.

      OK! My drive way is not perfectly level, so I kept having to button everything back up, drive to a level parking lot (Not pictured), and then re-measure. Sure it is a PITA, but it is a one time deal. Set it and forget about it. The fronts are 24" FTG and the rears are 24 1/4" FTG. I set the rear a bit higher to compensate for the lower fenders and a possible heavy load in the back.

      18s are back-ordered upon back-ordered so I went with 17s. Also, it doesn't hurt that I have an extra set of 17" tires laying around begging to be used.

      I am getting some flashy 18" splits for show.

      Deka battery ~16-18 lbs. Lightweight and powerful enough for this car.

      I live in the South and I drive every day, so according to dozens of people on the other forum I will never have to worry about it going dead.

      Several people up north claim they have never had an issue even after it sitting for a week in the cold.

      It makes since CCA is about 330 on these little guys.

      Get a pair of Thule Aeroblades. Even with my Pano roof, they are dead quiet.

      I got mine from Rackoutfitters and they offer them in black powdercoat!

      Rails and mounts were $305.90 shipped.

      I'm using them with OEM VW Barracuda bike mounts.

      How easy is the install?

      I have had bad luck with Thule, not that model though.

      Sorry those look retarded. Whispbars sit flush within the bars, no need to stick up.
