Hey everyone... thanks for the help!

I ended up leaving for an emergency (work) right after my last post yesterday. Didn't arrive back home until 11 p.m. last night. Joy.

I am still really amazed at the handling of this car now.

Ian, Eric and Jay: Thanks a ton for taking the time to do the pics and posting. If it is more detailed than just "add picture" I'm screwed! Program an entire automation system, no prob... post a pic... catastrophe!

Car is sitting even a bit lower today. I guess the springs settled a bit more.
Man oh man does it handle now! Just like it's on rails compared to stock. Jay... when is it your turn! ;-)

No props to me?  If it wasnt for me, you'd still be on stock wheels and it'd handle like POOOP.   :cry:

I must say though that the car does really look nice with my old wheels.  Have any clearance issues at all?

STEVE! Man I am so sorry, that was b-a-d. BIG thanks to Steve for the wheels! I actually love that anthracite with the reflex silver. I love the combo!

The wheels are super Steve. I gave thema good cleaning and they look real sharp. Big kudos!

Haha, no prob man.  I really do like how they look on the Passat.  I just wish that they would have fit the GLI a little better and had more clearance.  Hopefully those tire will last you a long while, tons of tread left on those things, so treat them well and you'll have lots of grip for many months to come.   :wink:

Treating tires well has always been a bit of a problem for me. However, I' really baby this car so I'm sure there will be a few seasons of enjoyment in them!
Now I need my test pipe and full turbo back exhaust. Oh yeah, an CAI too. Damn altitude!
