      pulled the R32 out and installed some 10mm spacers in the rear. used extended cone seat bolts and was not pleased with the amount of torquing required after installation, so going to keep an eye on them. the car is absolutely filthy from sitting in the garage (guess I need to get a car cover) but I'll detail it soon for the spring. also hoping to finally get the wheels refinished or sold and get the rear bumper fixed. still got a lot of looks just driving slowly through the neighborhood.

      /\ Beauty. Sad to no longer have one.... Need to unsubscibe to avoid hahaha. Couldn't believe the excessive need of spacers for the rear with the mk4 R32. I was running 25 mm with the Aristos and with my Oettinger wheels, just to get it somewhat near flush.

      The gray one is a GTI But yeah haven't seen Matty's car pop up in almost a decade now.

      Rudi's car is gone as far as I know as well. No one has seen it for years and I believe it was lost when the storage units the car was parked at were sold

      I really love the amber DRL. I might need to steal that idea....

      I know what you mean. I have always wanted to take my R on the AOA at MSP (just need my top of the car flasher and magnetic decal to throw on). I have wanted to take some cool photos and have have people look at me funny when they see the R rolling between the zippers. I guess it would be that big of a deal since Delta has the Porsche VIP cars rolling around out there.

      I had amber city lights in my smoked e-codes on my mk3 (now 15 years ago) and loved them. also why I swapped the clear fender lights to amber - I love how amber looks with blue.
