This is my new Jetta, its a 06 2.0 TDI Sport 140 BHP
Standard spec at the moment, have a few plans but nothing too major.
Thinking of new rims, any suggestions lads?

Ditto! Leave the Classix, space them out a bit and go lower!

Lovely car!

Cheers lads, had no plans to go lower, it already has a lowered sport suspension and with the bad roads in Donegal
don't think it would be a good idea, but I know what ye a re saying, it would look better lowered so might have a rethink on that one.

Them ones are for sale

A lot of people here (myself included) will tell you that the best place to find nice uncommon wheels at a decent price is ebay.de

Just email the seller to find a price on shipping and the seller will ship it to you
550 isnt a bad price but put in 500 in best offer and see how cheep you can get them for

The car before

And after with the new grill and the R-line fog light grills painted black, what you all think.
Headlight tints on the way, think this will need to be done to match the grills.
