looks very good. What kind of suspension did you use-how much did you lower.

Got my coilovers ready to go on just trying to find time to install. In fact i dont have tools to put front on so i probably will have it done. Ive got some big gaps to take care of.

suspension

I got installed a set of 4 ( 2 334812 front struts , 2 343280 Rear shocks ) KYB GR-2 Excel / shocks and 4 Vogtland (956095)high performance German made Lowering springs with a 1.5 inch drop(front and back). These shocks are custom matched and fine tuned to work these springs, to fit 1999 To 2004 VW Golf , Jetta and Beetle 4 cyl. models, including 1.8 & 2.0 turbo

sounds great and looks great-like your nb color.

I hesitated to lower because i may get a new body kit and it is going to make nb very low. I will really have to watch pot holes and parking curbs and I wont be able to use my car ramps and may not be able to put my good jack under nb to work on the car. Had my wheels rotated the other day and they told me that if i lowered nb their ramps could not go under it and would have to roll nb up on shallow blocks first then put their lift under nb.

Oh well this is the price we pay for modding. But its worth it.;)
