Check the link on my sig mate. there is a good side on shot for you.

i think that looks cool.....not like a tractor....

Yep thats just normal GTI suspension on 18s. The ride is wonderful, the roll is reduced and the grip is just awesome mate. If you're over this way i'll take you for a spin on a dry day and you'll see what a difference they make.

nothing short of feeling like a new car!

I think i can help you on this one!

Got the exact wheels you want last week and my car isnt lowered YET (coilovers are next), so here is a pic of those wheels on the std 1.8T suspension! BTW it deffinetly needs lowering! I have also included a photoshopped mod of my car which looks sweet! Sorry the car is soooo dirty!

do you think its higher than before?

the arch gaps look the same.....its an optical illusion, the smaller tyre wall give an impression of being a large arch gap.........dont it?

maybe you would think that, but because the actual wheel is bigger is still looks 4x4 a bit...i have noticed a few other people said the same thing in the same situation! But it is down to personal preference! I want it looowwwww! YOu may like it on the std suspension!

true enough personal preference it is......

But what i'm getting at is....

you see corsas riding on 16'/17's and they look PROPER rubbish, really like a tractor....

so the Golf dont look like that?...
