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..

Had 20mm spacers for a while for the rear. I put new wheels on it.. and if I really wanted... I found custom wheels.. I'd do et20 rear and et35 front on 18x8"

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.

Ha thanks. Butility I'm done with body mods for a bit..

 

No tint on windshield. Yeah 20% non metallic tint on all other windows.

 

Just the GIAC x+ with the k03 sport turbo. Haven't had cash to do b.t. yet.. but I have a plan....

Yeah it's fun.. Lol I love and hate driving it.. I spend 8 hours every 2 weeks detailing the car.. when I drive it.. it gets dirty.. and I hate that. Lol...

 

I picked up a part time job.. that will help pay my jeep off sooner.. then it's big turbo time.. well or I buy a bike.. looking at a 2000 victory..

(I know this thread is many years old)

Did you have the 20mm spacers on the rear for the majority of the pictures with the BBS RC's? Was that on stock suspension height?

Also, did you have any spacers on the front?

I'm looking to push my wheels out a little further, mainly in the rear. Just a little concerned about rubbing while under load/hitting bumps.
