haha yea NGP
I'm so done going through them. I watched them rape a guy for over $800 for a stage I APR chip. Also they stole my FK wrenches for adjusting my coil overs when they installed them. They also kept one of my dampening adjustment knobs for the front konis. They seem like really cool guys but I don't agree with their business practices. I'm buying one $80 straight pipe from them then never shopping there again.

It's fucking ridiculous to charge that much to plug in a laptop to an OBD port and flash a car.


Yeah I know nate. He's very knowledgeable but again their business practices.....

I told ECS tuning that the people who did my install said that they weren't in the box (because they told me that even though it's bull shit, the bubble wrap that they were wrapped in was literally in the box that they returned to me) and they sent me a free set that I received yesterday. They sell them as well I believe.

EDIT: Why the hell do you want to raise the car????? Your stance is perfect.

Do you know what kind of FKs are on it? My car is a tiny bit higher than yours and I'm about to adjust it after I get my wheels to be around a 1/4" lower all around. Speed bumps are not a problem as of now.

It sounds like you like it cosmetically except for the front stripe. It'll never look like it came from the factory like it is now. Maybe if you raise it back to 4x4 status and ditch the reps it will appear like its stock or came that way.

I like it as it is, still would ditch the GTi emblem on the front though.
