nice GLi man, im not sure of the color, but the trim is a nice shade of gray. here is the first thing you NEED to do, run to the CVS or Eckered of whatever and buy KIWI SHOE DYE, redye tose trim pieces and it will look hot. congrats on the new ride

Congrats on the GLI. The color is Dark Teal Clearcoat Metallic (LA6U).

Re:

As soon as i have access to more pictures, i will show you what has happened to the fenders due to the tires being of wrong size...They are 60-series right now. I plan on getting tires first.
But anyways, like i said, when i have some access to more pics, ill show you what happened...I dont know if i can fix this or if ill need a new fender...

it has a sponge applicactor tip, make sure you get the dye, not the polish or wax. you just rub it on, it last quite a few months

Re: Its ALL mine :) (ValveCoverGasket)

The previous owner had that done already...only thing is, when the wipers are actually in use, the wiper goes ALL they way down and hits the spot where the other wiper once was and starts bending...Anyway i can fix it? Am i gonna have to lean it more over to right? but then would it start hitting the passenger side??
Please Help! Ill try and get some pics of it bending. Its hitting the little piece that the wiper rotates on...hope that makes thing clear

Is it just me or do you have some negative camber up front?
I'm assuming it's like that so the tires don't get torn up on the edge of the fender.

Re: Its ALL mine :) (BradAtWork)

Rabbit is still under my ownership. Like i said, i havent actually picked the car up yet, so i still need somethin to get me around. Ill probably keep the rabbit just to have when the jetta takes a dump or im doin some work on it. But bro, you live like right near me...I go to lake mary high school http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif im a junior there...

Can this shoe dye be used on dashboards to change the color? I want a black dash, but mine is a dumb brownish color. Thanks!

I bang that **** in every day. Just becareful you dont want the paint to crack so you might want to heat it up.
