those are the first after market rims I've seen on here that I think are a good alternative to the stock rims.

Thanks...had to have them as soon as i saw them...and they are way lighter than the stock rims...car feels more nimbler around the corners

did you take all the badges off your car btw?

yes i did...didn't realy fancy the badges on the side...so decided to remove them and the one on the boot ass well...would have take off the GTI badge on the grill but its clipped on so just painted them...will be painting the VW emblems as well once i figure out to take them off without breaking them :D

Looks great. The wheel/drop combo really made a difference

Thanks...no DCC on mine...its 30mm lower in the front and 25mm at the back...i would have gone for the eibach sportline but it would be too low and the area where i live have such crazy speedbumps so i didn't really want the hassle

Hi there, do you happen to know if the shock absorbers that you have are any different than the ones mounted by default on any Golf 7 ?I just bought 18" Tomason TN1 rims and I'm also in touch with Eibach to buy the same springs that you have.Pro kit.So far for my engine 1.2 the springs will be avialable oround mid april :/ just tried to get the details about the springs working with the standars absorbers.I was told in two different VW dealers that the sport springs provided by VW will work with regular absorbers.The other dealer told me that there have to be special absorbers to sport springs.So different opinions.Although the guy from Eibach told me that the pro kit will work just fine with standards absorbers.Wasn't your GTI lowered already ? thanks

well im not sure about the standard mk7 setup but but i do know that the GTI suspension setup is stiffer and lower than the standard model...sorry i cant really help you with that but i can help you out with the wheels part :D....just make sure you get the same weight wheels or lighter ;)

nice gti.. definitely a sleeper from the rear!
why not try plasti-dipping the emblems, so you don't have to take them off?
