First off, hello. Secondly, car looks clean. Thirdly, I wouldn't do 18" wheels unless you plan on changing the suspension to sit lower (not a ton, maybe 1.5" down) unless you want your car to become a monster truck. I put 18's on before I did my suspension (wayyy back :p) and I never, ever, will suggest it to anyone. I suggest 17" wheels on stock suspension. They look just fine and don't really change the height and ride comfort.

Where are you in NH? I graduated from Keene State College this May and there's a few guys up in the area, so you're not alone. Some good guys there (ex. Nesho).

Hope to see some modding happening and may your Passat treat you as well as mine has.:thumbup:

Yeah, my main objective is to get rid of all the rubber that shows on the side wall with out it being that low to the ground, I mean I don't want to go out and buy expensive suspension :p .

I live near the concord area I'm still in college so money is a little tight as always haha.

Yeah, I had recently bought this in May for 5K from the previous owner with 123K... not to shabby. Non smoker, never used in the winter, I mean the control arms are like new! But it's my first stick and I'm loving it,

What about yourself?

Ohh most def dude, I don't think I could miss a car like that! Looks awesome. Is that taken on the bridge in RI?? Near Goat Island?

I'm in Boscawen... Super small town 20min back way to concord and 10min HWY

Where are you?

You'll get thru it. I did it. Got my B.S. in Geology, and am working toward Gemology. Hopefully I'll land my dream job soon. Just keep your head up. College is still very important and doing well puts you miles ahead of the people who just make it by. And, in this economy, that's something to strive for. :thumbup:

I only capitalized so you could see the GTG in it. What usually happens is hanging out, stories, work (if needed), and a general good time.

I've never gone to the one in NH, but usually for the one's in CT, we just send out PM's for invites and send an address. It's your duty to show up on said date. lol

Well, in October, they usually have Haunt Jaunt which goes up to the Kangamangus Pass and back to Portsmouth. Usually right around Halloween, so hopefully it'll be on again.
