Thanks for the comment guys! I can't wait till spring to start it all but I'm still searching for a good set of wheels and hopefully it'll be on time. I wish we have more good deals here in Canada for mods as it is in the US.

Its saturday afternoon, I'm done studying and time to post some new pics! I finally bought these great set of wheels and the Koni sport kit! (Thanks to Karmann_16v and a4canuck for the great prices and making my first mod ever a reality!) I'm really eager to put these on but its still winter and i can't wait till SPRING!!!!!





Aside from wheels and suspension, What should i follow this with? I'm not messing with the engine so chip and anything else are out of the equation. I'm thinking HID's and a new grill... your advise please.:beer:

There are a few choices:
Neuspeed:

SRS:

O-Bar:

Autotech:

I have the SRS one which is awsome. The O-bar is probably the cleapest. Do a search to see if there is any feedback around.

Nice! I'm thinking swaybars sometime in the future hopefully! I'm just wondering if there is anyone here in Toronto who has one and is planning to part out (not anytime soon...still want to get HIDs).

Congrats on the first mods! I know it's gotta be tough having stuff sitting around that you have to wait to install ...

So you're all set :D
when are you going low? mid-late April seems like a good choice
I'm going low this mid-April! Can't wait to get these wheels rollin' too! I'm just trying to find some wheel spacers and deciding whether to go with 10mm or 15mm. Yeah! I'm all set! :thumbup: :beer:

First off, congrats on your first mods :thumbup: The Passat is such a nice and clean looking car... Don't have to do much to it to make it look good.

So back to business...
(Thanks to Karmann_16v and a4canuck for the great prices and making my first mod ever a reality!)
I am looking to get a koni cup kit... are you guys a parts dealer? Can you PM or email me some prices?

I've got a '99 Passat, 1.8T sedan with Tip Tranny.

Back to ccollantes,
I've contemplated the badgeless grill... decided not to go with one, but if you go with one, I personally would go with one that matches the rest of the car

You wouldn't have to change the lower grills (cheaper unless money isn't a problem)

Otherwise if you went with the honeycomb 'kamei' grill, it wouldn't match the grill around your fog lights. So you'd have to change it all

^^ hot :D

I apologize in advance for not getting permission to use those pics... you can edit if it is a problem. :angel:

My 2 cents anyway...

Enjoy your ride, post pics when all is installed ;)

Yeah, I was thinking of the Kamei grille but I decided not to. I want that all chrome badgeless grill! Anyway, just found out that I have a 235/45/17 tire and not a 225... i think i will definitely need spacers... anyone selling let me know. btw, spring weather this weekend... if this continues, i'll have my car lowered by April 1st!

AH! The smell of spring, the smell of freshly wax car... ah the joy!

By the way, I have a badgeless with chrome slat and really happy with it! Will not go back to OEM

Just bought my spacers! H&R 10mm and 15mm's! woohoo! (just need some lugs but no problem!) Ah, yes... the smell of wax and probably some fresh summer rubber... that isn't too far, is it? I'm looking outside my window now and its snowing.... bummer.
