Finally got my UR strut bar and installed it yesterday, was a super tight fit. Looks great and feels a lil stiffer. Lovin it, pics to come!

Sorry for the delay in painting my car. My painter just got back from Mexico on the 24th. and i take possession of my neighbours 1.8T vw next wednesday and ive already ordered the paint now also. so the ball is slowly rolling, even though im a month behind what i wanted to be.

ya i did. i had bought bigbirds side skirts, but then he refunded me when he knew with shipping included i could buy them brand new for less. so i bought the side skirts but to save even more money i got them shipped to a family friends house in seattle to avoid brokerage fees, so im gonna go down and pick them up this summer hopefully once i order more parts and ship them there!

I was gonna buy the RMR lip for the front but the had jacked the shipping cost due to ups and gas, to a total of ~510, and i was LIKE YAAAA NO! havnt checked back with them about shipping just to seattle. but i will.

still needs rear gen 4 spats and a SC
