My DSLR battery is dead currently, so here is a shot from my phone-


And high-quality Instagram shot-


Tonight I will put the car on jacks when I get home from errands and then tomorrow I will install the springs, which will help the overall fitment a little bit.

It's hard as hell to capture properly, but the bronze looks really good in person against the TS paint. Once the springs are in, car gets washed, and my camera is charged I'll get some better pics posted.
I have to say Duane, you really know how to make wheels work for any color you have. I like this look a lot! I'm normally one to say that bronze is a weird color, but it works with these wheels. It really highlights details on the wheels and the wheels themselves obviously work with MK3s well done!

Duane - Did you install the Cobb RMM? and if you did, how is the vibration?

I did, it's not bad at all and still hasn't even broken in. I honestly didn't see a drastic change over the E-RMM that comes on the 14+ models though. A tiny bit of vibration at idle when it's cold but no noticeable buzzing at any other rpm range though.

Oh, and I get to make another trip to the tire shop tomorrow because I picked up a 1/4" bolt in my left rear tire last night. Yay.

Makes me wonder if my '14 RMM is good enough... I've noticed wheel hop just a handful of times since I've had her. (all of three weeks!)

What are the odds on the bolt though.

In all fairness, I don't really launch the FoST much, especially with the new parts. Before it was mainly because of the torque steer and e-diff, lately it's because I haven't started my pro-tune so I try to be easy on it in lower gears. First and second are pretty useless to me now anyways.

Also, bolt.


I pulled on it a bit hoping I might be lucky and find that it didn't puncture all the way. As it turns out, I am not lucky.
