Damn, at first I was thinking the wheels would look like ass but they turned out well.
Can't wait to see the finished product.

interested, I like the 4 door. not feeling the wheels, but Nevada stand up!

LOL... Honestly I had my doubts too!
I figured if I didn't like it, I could always strip the powdercoat and just polish the lips. Thank God I liked the end result!

Thanks to Oscar33 for making my decision much more easier, I just placed an order for Bagyard fronts through Andrew. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Thanks, me too! The fronts will tuck, but the rears will hit rim after I get it aired. I'm hoping a little camber will correct that though.

Size: 19x8 and 19x8.5
Offset: Roughly mid 30's(haven't accurately measured).
Tire: 215/35 all around.

I had an '05 USP Avant when I moved here in '06. Sold it in '07 and quickly bought an '04 Touareg with Air. Gas kicked my but when it went up to $4/gallon and traded the Touareg for the Rabbit for me and Jetta for her. I missed the Air so bad and the fact that lurking in this forum, made me do it!
I should be done with my install at the end of summer, so I'll hit you up later.

Re: Putting hops in the MKV Rabbit. (Aloha-boy)

Being a daddy of 2 boys(5&2) and wife going to school fulltime, winter projects were at a stand still. Now that the wife is on break and the weather warmed up, I was able to put in some work.
I finally chose a final box design and mounted all of the components on Friday night.

Saturday I ran all my power and controller wires down the driver side rail. I chose the cubby compartment, under the headlight switch, for the controller. I also left a lot of the slack for the controller in there. I did it so I can take the controller out and control the car from about 4-5ft from the dirver door. Here is the driver's view of the controller in the cubby.

Saturday night, after watching Twilight New Moon with the wife, I tried to work on cleaning up the wires in the box. But when my drill slipped I nicked my left thumb with a hole bit. I would've taken a picture, but I was in shock and decided to end the night.

Question for the MKV guys: What fuse did you tap for the Auto Pilot brain?
Here's my "left to do" check list:
- Connect all the power wires and do a system check.
- Install rear air bags and run rear air lines.
- Notch, install front air bags and run front air lines.
