Nice looking motor that, like the wheels and the exhaust, what exhaust is that by the way? Mongoose or something?

Not too sure about the steering wheel though? You like the Audi one? I remember it being smaller than the VW 3 spoke steering wheel?

its a powerflow back box, i had made for me, as theres not alot of choice out there for diesels and the miltek twin tailpipe seems very lost in the space provided in the 4mo splitter.

its an 04 plate audi tt wheel, i picked the wheel and airbag from local breaker for ?30 (BARGAIN!), i was going to use just the steering wheel as its exactly the same shape as r32, BUT the air bag shape is different on vw and would not fit. my vw wheel was worn heavily so this made a cheap replacement! lol

Nice motor!

I don't have the same colour but I have 50% light tints, look darker than they actually are because the car is silver but highly recommend them!

Mate those RS6's look the nuts, really do look a lot better than ya old wheels in my opinion.

As far as i know there is nowhere in cornwall that does professional tinting, i think the nearest place is Plymouth.

Where in cornwall do you live?

Your car looks really good. I always loved the RS6's alloys. Probably one of the best OEM+ alloy you can fit on a golf.

What make tyres are you running (very nice tread pattern)?

With regards to tints, I am running 35% rear and 50% fronts, which gives a nice contrast. They were fitted by fellow forum member tinter aka Liam of L&M Tinting.

the tread is kumo, not the best make in the world, but they are very grippy in the wet, the tread pattern is fantastic through large puddles as i found out on the way home to cornwall on the m5 yesturday, it was chucking it down!!

liking the tints on yours, i think id be better suited with the lighter tints as the old bill down here would probably pull me ova and have a stern word about it !lol

does your mate who did the tints do this service mobile?

i think i remember a while ago seeing that golf posted in the members rides section, looks same colour i think maybe a touch darker, ive got the same side skirts sitting in my bedroom waiting to be painted and put on, its convinced me the ani style was a good choice.

are they replicas or genuine? i bought some reps as they where only ?80 delivered from poland (bargain i thought!) guna hopefully fit them in the next few weeks along with some r32 mirrors ive recently bought from a fellow member on this site.

as for the tints ,i think thats a little dark for me ,im after a light smoke but thanks very much for taking the time to post them up for me.

Mine are Pentagon tints - 35% all around so you can still see through the glass. They charged ?210 at Manchester and did a great job.

thats spot on mate, those tints really suit the car not to dark, so not fuss from the old bill! and ?210 is so cheap considering there are quite a few windows to do.

thanks for the pics thats got my mind made up!!

gunna post in the main forum like you said to see if anybody knows a place in plmouth who tints.

Nice wheels mate, exactly what I want to get too. Are you lowered at all? coilovers?
if thats a pic of your car on the side, that will look awsome with these rims on at that ride height, i wish mine was a 3 door !, they just seem to look so much fatter than 5 door's i think!

im toying with the idea of painting them dark grey anthercite, i love the dark wheel look, i think that you should go for the polished rs6 version they do they would really complement your kit+drop.

im well pleased with the rims, they sit just nicely on the arch, although i have got some 5mm spacers that im guna put on in time when i change the rear disks/pads, and paint all the calipers up nice!

the car is running on standard gt tdi shocks, with 40mm (i think) lowering springs, i bought them second hand off e bay a while ago, and the guy said they where 50mm, but i think its fairer to say its 40mm.

i want to get some coilovers, either weitec/fk, not decided yet, but i love the slammed look of 80mm plus!! lol

im all prepared with uprated anti roll bars so no scrubbing on the ARB, just need to find a cheap secondhand kit on the bay!

Looks dead nice mate , tints would be a good idea in my opinion. If you find a place that can do it they will be able to advise you on what is the best shade to go for to avoid getting pulled over but still get a decent tint. I paid ?180 for mine all round and the job is 100% perfect.
If you see people driving around by you with tints just ask them where they had it done if you get a chance,thats how I found the place near me.
Your car could be a bit of a street weapon with that VNT-17 on too!

Sweet!! wheels look great! nice touches too (although not sure about the stearing wheel!) The tail pipes and smooth back bumper are the mutts nutts!!!!! I'd go for tints but dont go too dark.
