I have to ask, do you have the same issue I do; on the front fender there's a little sharp corner where the bumper meets the fender ... do you rub there too?

It's the one spot I'm just not sure what to do with. It adds rigidity to the fender and I don't want to loose that. But it's in the way and the paint is rubbed clean off on mine.
3 minutes with a dremel and you'll be good

Anyone with sportlines and an mk3 let me know if I should get anything else other than the springs, and if anybody knows how much install would be let me know.

We'd have to come up with a standard definition. Just "lowered" meaning, slim, even wheel gap, has properly sized tires and will actually be faster than stock and better. Then "Slammed" could be uneven gap because the rim is buried in the fender but the sides are still gapped, no tires larger than 185, must be way slower than stock. Severely compromised contact patch that's about on par with a tricycle.
