Heh, well not really, but this is as close as it gets to grass/gravel/dirt. Hey, it is "off road" so to say. Anyways... just thought I'd share some pics:
Just the general view:

My most favorite... I love how the frozen rotors reflect... they are like mirrors!

Nice little front shot:

A different view of the engine:

Now a picture of the car's great stance, IMO. 5mm front spacers, 8mm rear spacers:

I'm thinking some smoked tails, e-codes, and black badges will finish my look off. What do you guys think?

They are made by Kahn Design, and they are the RSRs. They are 18x7.5" and they have been powdercoated the gunmetal color.

about how much they run you with tires? Where did you get them? If my silver GTi can look like that, damn, I need to get me a set ;-)

Re: Took the GTI Off-Roading.... PICS (Samurai Cowboy)

I don't have any pics yet but i have a futura GTi and I have the smoked heads, tails and I'm getting my emblems painted black...so I say go for the smoked stuff with the black emblems...they'll go very nicely with the wheels which look great..nice car.

adg44,
what brand of spacers are ou using? I want 8 mm in the rear on mine. do they center themselves? I've hear issues concerning spacers, and not being able to get the thinner ones centered properly.

Is this your front or rear? Looks like your front to me judging by the rotor size and if that is so, your rotors are swapped and on the wrong sides

edit...that is the front, just looked at the rotation marking on the tire...caliper sits behind the rotor on the rears

Re: Took the GTI Off-Roading.... PICS (john green)

They look fine. The front of the car is to the left, and you can see the arrow on the side wall of the tires. Forgive if I'm wrong but for front disc isn't the Caliper suppose to be towards the front.

Your wheels got really dirty out in the dirt. They are nearly black. Take it easy partner.

Sorry. Sweet car, I think a euro-bumper would be a good addition too. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
