Re: (Borders II)

Lowering looks great! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> I would place the tip of the exhaust a bit more under the car...<p>But it looks really good <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

How much was your drop? Did you use the IPD 1.75's? How do you like the ride?<p>I used the Eibach prokit and FSD's, but I think I would go a little lower next time. Mine was dropped about an inch.

Re: (Big J)

Wait till you see it with my 15" Antlias for winter! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> It's going to look slammed on those little wheels, I love it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"><p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Big J</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">How much was your drop?

Mine was dropped about an inch.</TD></TR></TABLE> <p>I used the new 1.75" springs. I've had them in a little less than a week now, and the drop appears to be about 1.5". I've been told by a number of people who run them that they will settle and lower even more.<p>I LOVE the ride! Just love it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> The Konis give that nice smooth and planted feel, and the springs are incredible how they not only lower the car, but improve the ride, handling, and eliminate all the harshness of the stock suspension. No more crashy stock Volvo suspension, this is the solution.<p>They may be a tad too low for some people, but I knew what I was getting myself into. I would run coilovers if I had the money.

Re: Some pictures from today. (C70drvr)

Looks Sweet! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>And I agree, the first think I noticed was that the 17" look small. <br>A nice set of 18" would give the car a more aggressive stance... it'll look BadASS! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>And, on a side note, I could always take those 17" Canistos off your hands, for the right price of course. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Think about it...<p>Nice job on the pictures, Kudos.<p>Cheers, <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Raf<br>

I've been looking into a set of staggered 19's with a slightly stretched rear tire. It won't happen till next year at the earliest, but yeah, I would like bigger wheels.
