Holy light ass wheels batman! Nice car. :thumbup:

Can you please take pictures of the car on a sunny day w/ the windows closed and the sunroof open? Thank you! (Reason is because I'm not sure if I should get 35/20 or 50/35).

That's what I thought at first but honestly I don't think the 35/20 looks all that bad. In most of the pictures I took you can't even really tell that the front is lighter.

But in any case I'm getting the front windows redone 20% before I move to New Mexico, California tint laws suck and my car already attracts enough attention as is. :D

I know it's not absolutely necessary but from what I've heard the stock TC gets overwhelmed when the G2 hits full boost at the lower rpms. Even so it'll probably go in long after I get all the body work done and a supersprint catback.

Then when the tranny fails from me running the 2.9" pulley and 100 octane program on the supercharger I'm going to swap in a beefed up B5 S4 6-speed.

never though i woulda like thoes kinda wheels on a passat, but it friggin works man!
When I first looked at them I was thinking the same thing. Sometimes when I look at them on my car I think, "Damn these things belong on a 5.0 stang or some shit." :lol:

But they are the lightest rims you're going to find for the price and they'll make good auto-x/drag wheels once I get some 18's or 19's next show season.
