      Bought it, tinted it, wrapped it, and lowered it. A productive 2 weeks of ownership!

      I agree, the Arteon is one of the best looking car on the market right now. This car looks good from all angles especially the front.

      I bought these 2 years ago before they confirmed the Arteon was coming to North America.

      I think it’s a lot nicer ride than the stock springs. I feel it smooths out the bumps better.

      Yeah I sure miss my MK7 Golf R wheel coming to the Arteon. I would like to know what coding etc, all needs to be done to switch a wheel, I might get one down the road myself.

      Ahh,I see the difference, the euro one has a different airbag. I think I like the US version better look wise.

      Sweet! I been eyeing those myself but just cannot justify spending $170 on center caps lol. What did you end up paying for yours?

      Thanks! Sorry about that, Youtube didn't upload the full 4K video for some reason. I'll try to get the drone closer to follow.

      Nice ride, that black out look goes really well with the chrome trims. The arteon looks great in black, it was one of my 2 choices, the other was manganese gray.

      How about, what did you do today to prepare for your Arteon?

      I bought these:

      https://www.harborfreight.com/72-in-...vel-68366.html
      https://www.harborfreight.com/200-lu...ght-63922.html

      (Yeah, I know, not exactly a source for really high quality, but for only $10.39 and $2.99, respectively, with an additional discount code, plus the novelty of a newly opened store, and in general if you don't plug it in and if your life doesn't depend on it, their stuff is good enough, especially for a one-time job and an easily disposable item if necessary, respectively.)

      I shall post another cryptic clue as to the Arteon relevance once I make some progress on this project!

      Will post a few pics
