      I have the same wheels. Love them man. They are super lite and paired with Michelin PS AS3+ they are awesome.

      I agree with the black wheels and design opinion of not being able to see the design. I wanted to switch from my Black Prets to something else, but every time I see something else on the car it just doesn't seem right with all the gloss black trim on the mk7.5 R.

      Black wheels look much better in person than in pictures to me for some reason.

      The Neuspeeds are lighter which I'm sure helps with the overall feel.

      Not sure when, but VW switched the shade/finish of the pretoria's from the standard shiny silver to a more satin/darker silver, they are pretty nice - although I would argue that depends on the colour of your car. I love the black pretoria wheels (any anthracite to black in general for that matter), the only problem I found is that if you aren't keeping your tires clean and dressed the whole wheel looks bad (this only compounds if you live somewhere with harsh weather) - and if you get any curb rash or scratches it becomes a nightmare.

      I am shocked how well these perform. I also love the fitment without spacers although the fronts do have a little more poke now compared to the back. I drove from Vegas to Jackson Hole the day after I got them fitted. The twisties and the freeway drives are both way better than my O.Z's. Neuspeed for the win.

      Huh. Other wheels in this price point are much heavier, and quite frankly ugly. You can’t beat Neuspeeds for the price.

      Installed my suspension over the weekend:

      Eibach pro-kit
      Tyrolsport deadset front subframe kit
      Eurosport Street camber
      O34 Rear shock mounts
      Bilstein B6 DCC
      New OEM bearings, Strut mounts, Hardware, Bumpstops

      Install was smooth and easier than I anticipated. Overall, it took just under 6 hours to do everything. I purposefully purchased all the associated suspension bits to make the install a straight swap. First time doing work on the suspension of my R (aside from the rear Neuspeed bar I installed a couple of years ago with MOOG endlinks) but have installed many suspension setups on previous cars (STI, S2000, Miata, Tacoma)...Used a 2x2 ~23” long with a hole drilled near the top to pass the pinch bolt through the endlink mount and compress the shock out of the knuckle.

      I am enthusiastically pleased to say the least! The car rides amazing! It is compliant, controlled, and comfortable. The new suspension is hardly firmer than stock...in ways it rides much more comfortably due to the lack of “floatiness” the stock OEM suspension exhibits. Each mode on the DCC is far more distinguishable and squat/dive/roll is near non-existent! The car just had so much more control. I cannot speak highly enough of this setup (have had many cars in my past with dedicated track coil overs that were just not as forgiving around town, but that’s no surprise).

      Alignment was done and is near perfect! I gained some caster over my stock alignment I had back in December, gained another 1.2 of camber and best of all everything is even all around. Once I’m in the car all the numbers match up!

      Crummy picture with a dirty car in a level empty school parking lot. I’ll take better pics when I get a chance.

      In case anyone is wondering I am running BFI F/R Spacers 8/10 respectively with Motorsport Hardware 78mm race studs riding on Indy 500 235/35 19 (got a great deal on them so I bit the bullet, but wish I had gone PS4S...next time)

      Ryan, thank you for the review, this is very close to what I plan on doing, Eibach, and the Bilstein B6's. I currently have the CSS knuckles/hubs so I'm not sure if I will add the EuroSport inserts or not (would give me -2.9 or -3.0). You're gonna love the camber addition, makes a big difference. Enjoy the ride!

      Thanks!! The added negative camber made a significant difference just going on my usual commute with fun on ramps! Definitely carrying more speed and the car is so stable...even on bumps mid-corner. You’ll love the setup when you get yours! It’s a pretty mild setup overall...perfect for backroad twisties and daily driving duties.

      Ryan

      I didn’t know those Eurosport camber mounts added -1 degree of camber. For some reason I thought it was more like -0.5.

      Bought it..

      Decided to trade my S4 for this mint CPO with 3k on it. So far I am very happy with the decision. I have 034 rear sway & endlinks ordered, trying to decide on what tune to get. Had Eurodyne on my S4 and on my GTI before that, heard great things about IE, might go that route.

      Requiring a trip to a dealer or tuning shop is the way of the past. UM? Great tuners, but you are tied to the shop and no way to recoup any costs. Pointless for a stock turbo car. They won't extract any more power than the rest like APR, Uni, etc...

      Cobb
      Eurodyne (if you prefer full control)
      soon you will also have ECUtek and HPTuners

      IE is just like the rest of the canned tunes.

      Right on! I really like the red. Idk how much power you're used to but I have a 7.5 with APR+ & an intake & I'm beyond pleased with what the R does with that setup. Any route you go enjoy the R I'm absolutely thrilled with mine.

      Awesome! I’ve been considering the same rear sway. Not sure if I’m going to do that or some camber in the front first. Congratulations on the purchase.

      SuperPro would have been a better choice, especially for the endlinks. If I were to do it again, I'd still go with the SuperPro rear swaybar but with the Moog endlinks instead.

      I have the SuperPro RSB. Initially I ran it with the SuperPro end links, but they literally fell apart. I think that they were too long for a lowered car. I replaced them with the Moog end links, and have been very pleased with them! Can’t beat them for the price!

      SuperPro seems like good quality stuff but for me replacing a hollow bar with a solid heavier one is sacrilege - why not use Eibach or APR which are hollow?

      This is certainly a fair point. I think a strong case could be made for a hollow bar.

      Hadn’t pulled out the spare to check the pressure in about 2 years. It was down to 28 psi. Back up to 60 psi now.
