So, I'll still have the CC's and smoked SM's, and tinted tails, but this'll hopefully be the look. Whaddya think? Oh yeah, and painted lowers too. :D

It's about time someone gave me some feedback. I was think about doing a project car, but with my ability to get to work easily (even without a car occasionally) and my wife getting a new car, I figured I'd just do my Passat.

I am tyring to find a suspension setup that will drop my car this low but provide me some ability at adjustment for winter if need be. We'll see. It's going to be quite the project though.

Thanks for the input. I definately agree with your new purchase.

I'm not a fan of huge wheels that are tucked into the wheelwells.  Especially in Colorado where the streets are often in poor condition.
If you must go that low, than maybe an adjustable air suspension maybe your best bet to protect your painted lowers and to safely get over those dreaded SUV-sized speed bumps.

Also forgo the chrome wheels.  A bit to bling, IMO.  How about some high polished wheels -- they look pretty sharp without the problems of chrome plating (pitting, heavy coated look, durabiliy over time, etc.).  Have you considered some black wheels with a polished/chrome lip?  Those look pretty sporty and will look nice on your car (along with black painted calipers  :cool: )

What? You mean like hydraulics? or coilovers? Hydraulics would be pimp. Probably a little too much work though.

I agree a bit too low.  Painted lowers will look good - planning on doing them myself in the spring.

And what ever you are smoking, you better share!

LOL!

I had a pimptacular Pchop of my car like that too...very funny, but it would be impossible to drive here in CO like that.  As a matter of fact, your best bet would be coilovers or the ECS coilover kit if you want to be able to adjust them.

As for the painted lowers, one day I will get to this on mine too...too many projects and not enough time.

JR - You need to airbag that ride.  Don't worry what the other say....you can start something new with the bling chrome wheels.

On a serious note, I was in Pueblo seeing account I sell to there and in the lot of one the account is a totally pimped out MK IV Jetta.  When I leave I asked who's ride it was and the buyer introduces me to this guy in the shop.  It had airbags so it dropped to the ground and he was rolling on 18" chrome. He was a nice guy and said he took a lot of heat for having chrome but that is what he liked.  He said he was at bug in and VWOG and won something at one of those shows (I cannot remember which award).  

It just reminded me of what you have Pchopped TJ.  If you really want more info on airbagging I could track him down for you ya.
