Camera phone pictures!  :grin:



Swishy angled one taken by a mate with a real camera:

The coils have been on about a week and a half now. Done ~1.5k kms and they have settled down another few mill since those photos. The thick finger gaps is now a thin finger gap, it's all good  :grin: The white mk5 in the background of the last photo belongs to a mate who's on Rokkor coilovers. It wasn't as low as mine at first but he has removed the helpers since and it sits a good bit lower now as can be seen in the photo. It's tempting me to remove mine  :lipsrsealed: If I do I'll need to start finding new places to park in the city  :undecided: :grin:
Not low enough mk5

Had some mates in the car the other day, two of which were a bit heavy  :grin: Gave the car a nice drop  :grin: It was tucking tyre all around, a bit more up front, which is exactly how I'd like it to sit. It's had me thinking that I'll remove the helpers at the end of August and go lower  :lipsrsealed: Not going to do it before then because the road to work is quite rough and uneven. I finish up in August though and back in college for a year so no more super terrible roads. I looked at air ride prices but it would cost as much as returning to college  :lipsrsealed:
So come the end of next month I'll finally have a decent drop. Probably won't be able to bring my mates anywhere though  :laugh:

Looks great as it is, I think any lower would ruin it.  :undecided:

Thanks, but the finger of arch gap that's left is starting to annoy me more and more. When my mates sat into the car and it dropped just the little bit further for there to be no arch gap it looked so much better. Had no clearance issues for that day either, except some scrubbing on full lock which isn't a big deal and easily sorted.

I'd invest in some more outlandish rimmage.

I know you've been secretly spying on some Rotiform BRU's!  :grin:

Three spokes do look mint on mk5s. I was looking at some Saab 3 spokes and Advans before getting the Skodas :lipsrsealed:
