Re: (vw1.8TurboGTI)



I have about a 1 and 1/4 finger gap between the fender and tire. I just got the cupkit installed today and I love it.

Re: (White_Turbo)

They are the 16" oem castellete(sp?) wheels. I'm going to be upgrading to 18" wheels soon, probably the RS4 wheels, and use those 16"s for winter.

Re: need to see H&R Cupkit (so gti)

so gti
first off i just wana say i love you car.
did you go with 8mm spacers front and rear? i know some people use 15mm and 20mm in the rear. What made you go with 8mm if that whats you got?
more pics of your drop would be cool too, cupkit is what i'm looking at too.

Re: need to see H&R Cupkit (02indigoGTI)

2" the ride is harsh w/ the cup kit.
i no longer have it.
i have KW Coilovers V2 now, and the ride and handling is by far better.
and i did have a problem with one strut bending, its been about a year since i made the switch, hopefully H&R fixed the problem already.

i dunno why, but all my friends with cup kits keep asking me why i can't even fit a pinky between my tire and fender without angeling my finger to like 45 degrees. when they have like 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 fingers width going straight in. I do have the 16" wolfsburg BBS RXii's on it, but that shouldn't make a difference.

Click my signature for pics. This was a day after, the drop but it's gone down a bit since. I'd like to loose another .5'' in the front and another .25" in the back
