710s (Hyper Silver)

what body color did/are you getting: I'm assuming white. I'm thrown back by the look. These look amazing against white! Super clean and being lowered, I'm not a cop magnet.
It's a great fit and don't need spacers at all!

The 810s are pretty much the same so either way it'll be the same. It's funny how vortex profiled the same wheel set-up from VMR just two months ago. Either way you're set. Just decide on the suspension.

Ordered my 4dr in Pure White, just like yours. Can't wait!
In the meantime, looking at threads like these has to keep me occupied.

:thumbup: LOL twin brother. Car looks sick and rides oh so damn nice! I hear Mops on the spacers. Let's mount mine and you should be good to go. Feel like I need to give Pacific German a shot out as my brother has now been minted. They've done and continue to do good work on my GLI, quick pick for you cool boy Mk7's (thread jack) :laugh:

Looks great! I'd add a 5-6mm rear spacer. What are the 19" Audi rotor wheels for?
Tyler from PG had them laying around the shop. So u think I should dldo the spacers?

Thanks for sharing, Your GTI looks great. I'll be installing those coil- overs this weekend. Is the ride much firmer than stock? Looks to have removed the wheel gap. :thumbup:
Love it. Thanx sir... It went lower than I thought it'd go... you'll be more than happy! The after pic does no justice at all. What wheels are you gonna run?

Not as stiff as HRs... better daily driver action.

Excellent to hear!! I was concerned that the coils may not be low enough with the wheel gap the 7 has in stock form. I didnt want to go hella low & worry about destroying an oilpan, did that a few times on my mkiv. I have a set of 3SDM .06 on the car:) the Wheels kind of make it look like a little hot wheels car :laugh: If the weather is terrible this weekend, I plan on installing the Coils & maybe door puddle LEDs.:thumbup:
