Nice, the car looks so much better lowered. Stock height looks kinda silly to my eye, I guess cause the MKV is taller than ever to begin with. Anyone have an idea what price these lower springs are?

Those first H&R photos have to be the Coilovers right? Maybe say exactly what suspension model is being used and drop height as a note above the picture!

What wheels are those? They look pretty good and a different from the normal stuff we see too much of.

In the top pics they look like Anteras but not certain, the lower pics are of Schmidt VN-lines. I really like those VN-lines.

That looks amazing but not very practical for everyday use. I have to decide what I'm going to get so I can hurry up and order.

Heh yea that's pretty much taking the coilovers down to the limit :) Canada isn't getting GTI's until feb/march right? Are you stockpiling mods before you even get the car?? ;) I've been guilty of that before heh.

What I'm trying to do (and I won't lie) is get the dealer to install as many of the mods I want so when I lease the car I'm also leasing the mods. This way instead of paying for the mods all out of my pocket I can pay for as much as the residual is. More mods for less money!
