    Default Air and schmidts ... Mk5 GLi

    I'll keep pics in here from now on. Still no car wash. Just got back home. If you were at RIT you got to see the car in action, so to speak!

    2007 jetta Gil, dsg, 2.0 fsi

    17x8.5 et33 Schmidt th-lines in front
    17x9.5 et20 Schmidt th-lines In back

    No fender work

    205/45/17 falken 512, I believe, all around

    Airlift shocks, accuair manifold, 2 vair 400 compressors, e-level management, dorbitz cups in back, notched

    Will get pics of the trunk, but there's nothing to see, everything is hidden, except for the top of the tank!

    lol thanks, I love pics of cars on air like that

    As of 5 mints ago, eyelids are gone, and GLi lip is back on, pics tomorrow

    But I'm debating on what to do about the grill, I don't know anyone who could fill the notch, so I thought about putting the VW one back on

    Like the setup, but absolutly dislike those wheels. Look way to massive in anything bigger then 14".

    I like them. Loved the look on mkiv's. MK5's can fit 16's but I'm not sure how that would look. Can't go smaller then that because of brakes. And I'm not sure how that would look.

    But this is my most favorite wheel ever. I've craved a set of these for past ... 6 years, but didn't have the car to get them on!

    Yea fill the notch and it'll be proper.. looks sinister without the front badge IMO.

    Changed up the front

    Thinking about holess upper chrome or black, with chrome with fogs

    Center chrome and fogs with chrome are definitely staying on

    Thanks! I like new chrome grills A LOT. So I'm sticking with them. I'll get fog ones with fog openings, and a holess main chrome.

    I'll get chrome mirror caps, these are in need of replacement.

    And I'll try to get bigger pics today of the whole car so you can see side of it with more shiny stuff that's in place now.
