I don't have much done, shaved spoiler, painted Dubstop grill, and 18" Pegs. A drop is coming in the near future, and I'll get some more pics then. I was going to wait until I got home and clean these up and crop them, maybe put together a few HDRs, but I'm impatient, so just a quick resize for now. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i43.tinypic.com/ae5z0k.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i43.tinypic.com/2uyhok9.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i44.tinypic.com/293wo76.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i42.tinypic.com/15yyii9.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i43.tinypic.com/3178n7l.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i44.tinypic.com/2pzk3gi.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i40.tinypic.com/2nsap2q.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i39.tinypic.com/5jw4t5.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Comments welcomed. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br>

Re: (S40DaB)

Car looks great!<p>I think your number 1 upgrade should be tinted windows! Really makes the car look much more aggressive! <p>It also will distance you from the stereotype that only grandmas drive our s40.<p>I'd look into it!<p><A HREF="http://www.moosejaw.sk.phonepages.ca/Automotive%20Glass%20Replacement%20Shops" TARGET="_blank">http://www.moosejaw.sk.phonepa...Shops</A>/ <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Thanks for all the comments so far guys.<p>The wheels are replicas from ebay. I wouldn't recommend anyone go this route. I had 2 that needed refinishing before I could even wrap them. Stick with used on here or reputable replicas from places like IPD. Lesson learned...<p>I wouldn't mind tinting, but here it's illegal to tint the front 3. I wouldn't get away with them being tinted for long, and I hate the look of a half tinted car. I think I'll leave it for now. Might try to get away with a light tint eventually, but I think I would just be throwing my money away.<p>I'm digging the chop though. I thought about getting anthracite wheels, but didn't think it would look good. I wanted the contrast, and I thought anthracite would look like I was trying to match the color and failing.<p>My coilovers should be here any day now. I ordered them almost 3 weeks ago. I really wanted to get them on the car this weekend, but I guess I have to wait.

Looks like an awesome car! Mofolicious why don't you try tinting the front lighter than the back. In BC, I can't have my fronts tinted as well. I think I might go maybe 40% at the front which is barely noticeable compared to my back that has 20%. I have my back tinted and I might get the front done soon but just a really lighter tint.

Re: (kpsingh0)

$600, then another hundred and something to ship them, then I forgot to request shipping via USPS, so good old UPS took me for another $120 at my door, then to repair and refinish the wheels it was another $230.<p>So.... too much. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (mofolicious)

are those the exact size and offset the S60R uses? i thought we needed spacers to get them to fit S40s, but those look awesome!
