Yes, it's airbags. I wish I could afford to go with an air setup on my car, but I have some friends on air out here so I know how expensive it is.

PS. I would buy at least one extra bag just in case one of them blows, it happens.

i think you should put some $ towards the rest of the car and give the suspension/wheels a rest lol.

a gti on bags is cool and all, but the $ could be utilized elsewhere, no?

Wrong, he's building an air-cannon to launch potatoes out of his hatch.
