dude need these rims. Please message me and tell me what they are! I would appreciate it!

Do you have your car all the way slammed or can it go lower? I'm in the market for coils and looking for the most drop. Thanks.

if i could get my titanium to sit somewhere around how my gti was. ill be happy.


This is set at H&R's highest setting. I still have an entire coilover to play with. I just don't like slammed. Right at the tire is where I like to be.

TBM07,

Yes, I bought the H&R Coilovers from FSWERKS. He can get them in a day or two i believe. I can go about 2 inches more all around, maybe more.

Never saw this thread until today. My bad. Here are pics of the Pro-Kit drop (.8" drop):

Before-


After (a little shaded, sorry)-


Those were both pre-spaced. Here is more current (10/15mm spacers)-


And now she looks like this (15/20mm spacers)-

Thanks! I've been back and forth with the black/OEM quite a few times now. The black looks really good in person but doesn't show well in pics while the OEM fits the beltline better. That made my wheel decision easy-I ordered Anthracite I'll update in here when they and my coils are installed.

P.S.-Those Tarmacs are secksy
