Default my 24v golf

New around here but thought i'd post what i drive and its stages of life.
It is a 2004 24v VR6 GTI 6-speed. love it to death.
started out as this

then got some sport springs cause i thought it would be cool.

then a month later got a set of FK Highsport Coilovers

then bought some euro spec Audi Rs4 reps 18x8.5 ET19

did work

and also cut my sway bar out so i could go lower.


done and on.

It stayed like this for about a year then it was time to go lower and get actual nice wheels.
picked up a set of 3pc OZ Pegasus' 17x8/9

took them apart and refinished them!


205/45/17 on a 9" get that stretch

new wheels on

Bought a 1" motor mount spacer kit to raise my engine to prevent busting another oil pan or driverside axle. yes im on oil pan #2 and driverside axle #11 and also notched both sides of my frame so i could go lower


took out the bump stops on my coilovers and also helper springs and this was the result



latest pics. also car is daily driven at that height and is STATIC. no airide or hydros



cheers!

Impressive! That's a nice looking VW. I like the rims. Cool to have a second V-dub head around here (mega_option knows his VWs)
