awesome man...i like! =D...question...no rub? and wat kind of suspension set up?

i'm running hpa shs street coilovers (a variant on kw v1's). all the way down in the back, 1/2 inch left in the front.
i get slight rubbing over bumps (the ones that i'm not able to miss) at highway speeds, but other than that its all good.
i just take it easy and keep an eye out for road defects.

i'm not that low, and i rub every now and then. this is ville maaronen's mk5. that is low. i think he rubs a lot. but people are saying he doesn't. i'm not buying it though. maybe he runs a different tire, or rolled his fenders.

you have some big tires on it... even for not being that low.. you have 235's on it
