Today I ordered a list of goodies for my beetle that's really going change a huge handling and breaking dynamic drastically.
1. Powerstop Z23 Brake upgrade ( cross-drilled and slotted with painted red calipers)
2. ECS stainless steel brake lines front, mid, and rear.
3. H&R front and rear sway bar kit 22mm 25mm.
4 ECS centered mounting plates.

These should complete my whole suspension setup. I'll post some pics once they arrived and installed.

Lol. I finally did something to my beetle today.
I installed 1/2" wheel spacers.
Could have maybe went a hair thicker, but stuff woulda hit/rubbed.
Either way, they are on, and, Im happy.

Next, Im going to upgrade the oem radiator, with a super cool aluminum one from ECS, and at same time, replace the a/c condenser.

Fixed the brake light problem. Also, I finally pulled the trigger on the aFe intake since I saw a nice deal at 4wheelonline. I chose the one with Pro Dry S filter for easy maintenance.

Just got back from San Francisco trip and took my beetle out of the garage for a bit. It's nice to get out of the Camry after the trip

My door sills came in last night and the look of the sills kind of boring. It's just black which was the total opposite of what I was going for. I was hoping for aluminum so one or two things that I'm thinking about right now. I'm either going to look at bugsgo or I may use the sills and get painted with an aluminum finish. Either way I'll figure it out.
