Just need to get my wheels powdercoated now, just can't decide to go anthracite or black.

Wow that is low. How much did you have to adjust the rear camber arms, they must be on the ends of their thread! (I presume its an R32 btw?)

[Y] Either way looks great
I am not sure lol,

Don't laugh but it is a Gt tdi 150

God no, it's no reason to laugh [:)] PD150 is a good investment, and certainly a looker now you've added some extras.

It's a pretty good R32 replica in any case. I only asked about the rear
camber adjusters as I had coilovers on my old R32 and it couldn't go as
low as you've gone - that explains it anyway.

I'd deffo consider a sump guard btw - lots of horror stories about smashed sumps floating around at the moment [:O]

they aren't the same r32 wheels though are they? i thought the spokes on the oz aristos (or whatever the r32 wheels are called) have smoother spokes.

I think i worded my post wrong, i meant to say that they are not R32
wheels or even reps at that matter, and that they are another design
which may look similar to the r32 wheels but aren't also if these are
the same wheels i saw on the 4mo y.day do they curve in a bit when the
spokes are reaching the hub? as these wheels looked great as yours do
aswell [:D]
