    Just been out and gave her a quick scrub so that she doesn't have to go for surgery dirty!

    You going with the standard dampers with those grams springs or the cup ones? Also what size spacers have you gone for.

    The stance is going to knock your socks off when you first see it!
    With regards to the wheel colour, anthracite for sure, you totally need the contrast with DB. Mine looked shit when I first picked up my Mk3 with black wheels.
    There should be plenty for sale, so I’d recommend an upgraded panel filter like K&N, ITG etc as it sound better than the stock one.

    Thanks for the input anthracite I'd definitely a choice but I'm still undecided lol

    My mate has springs and these spacers and it sits so much better than mine lol can't wait to get them on

    May still put the ktr induction kit back on as I have a panel filter in and I can't hear anything . Everyone loves na induction noise lol
