Thanks, folks! You can get a Strut Tower Brace from PureMS, Sonu's wife had a kid so he's diverting more of his time into that I hear, but you may want to contact him anyway, he makes a great Strut Bar! I love the way the SRS bumper looks, and I like better that nobody else seems to have one!

Wow I can't believe I've never seen you cruising around, do you come up around the Menlo park/Palo alto area at all? I always wondered if that SRS bumper would look overdone but it looks good on your whip. :thumbup:

Thanks! I don't actually spend alot of time up there, most of my time is spent between between Santana Row and Los Gatos, and occasionally SF, though I think I might have to get up to the BBC one of these days...

Thanks!

The wheels came with plastic centercaps, I bought the VW badges on eBay from some guy in Brazil, and put those on instead of the wheel manufacturer's. I did the same thing with my old Mak Sonics, but got them used and just removed the Mak badges and put the VW ones on. I believe there's some guy in either the group buy or marketplace forum whose selling caps with badges, not sure if they are the correct diameter though - heres the url: http://www.passatworld.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1767452#post1767452
