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

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.
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.

Glad to see your enjoying the JSW! Can't wait to see her with new shoes!!
Which exhaust did you get? or just tips?
can't go wrong with OZ's
17's or 18's?
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.
