Thanks.. the mods I've are subtle yet personal.. ya know.. the mirrors and grill are painted to match the wheels.. the seat inserts are to add that Audi S4 look. I wanted to do something different..

Chrome this and flat black that are so common these days... she stands out while blending in..

Obligatory VW "lower it" I like the interior it's a nice break from the plaid and overall good looking car. Get some spacers from ECS on the wheels

man this makes me miss my jetta... had the cts 50 trim bt kit on it with the unitronic 630cc mafless file. loved that car but was my DD and needed a more reliable DD. any i have some leftover parts still but this one in particular may interest you. its a rear bumper with the rub strip and lip molded. i bought it with the intent of finishing, painting, and installing but as i said i got rid of the car. PM if interested... im in vegas so shipping wont be too bad.
