Well after buying the 'Bra' for my car... Its time to show the look that I am aiming for this year:



What do you think of the wheels and ride height?

What about the grill..


Opinions...

Time to bastardise my car

Wheels are sweet, but was never a fan of badless grills on a Mk4 - looks a bit like a toothless knacker.

Wheels are nice, but the bumper and grille are cack.

I think the headlight washers in the standard bumper are very aggressive looking and I like them. Ride height is nice and wheels are nice too. I would leave it at that. Dont like grille either

not mad on the badgeless grill the wheels really look well
is it just me or does the ride height look impossible there is no travel from the wheels to the arch
would it be a bit of a trailler show car??

The ride hight looks well and so do the rims but she'd probably need to be as hard as a rock! I actually like the car overall but the only thing I would think is it might be a pitty to remove the headlight washers as they're handy, especially this time of year.
It's your decision really

Don't forget, headlight washers are a legal requirement in a car with Xenons

Cool, countries full of rice styles MK4's, it's even stopped my Dad and my sister from buying one, we need to see more of this on our roads!

Im a big fan of black rim with polished lips! the bigger the dish the better, ride should be as low as possible, just to get the wheels filling the arches. Grill is good but I was never a fan of that bumper!

Low ride height vs comfort at going to be an issue in Ireland, but hey its about the look! stance and whole attitude of the car, for me wheels and ride height/stance make any car, the rest is down to the individual taste.

At the end of the day its your ride, your dollar, do wot you want, you'll never please everyone, and if it turns out good, folk will still pick faults tru jealousy.

Piss off the purists an fuck the begrudgers!

Its illegal to retrofit xenon bulbs to non xenon lamps, the lights then loose their type approval, for xenons you are required to have self levelling lamps and lens cleaning equipment.

That Xenon legality thing is a UK thing only.

Do you honestly think the Gardai now what a Xenon light is ? Or how to spot a self-levelling system ?

hmm, i like it's stance and the rims are ok! Not gone on the grill, bra or smoothing though. An r32 looks best as near to standard as possible in my opinion..
