My take on rear brackets for mk4 firestone rear bags.
rear setup came out $150 for two rear bags and another $30-40 for my own brackets.
as of may 12 2010 they are on the customers daily car for 4 months,no issues.http://img580.imageshack.us/g/img7599y.jpg/

Seeing as this is something I will be doing this spring, I have been looking for DIYs. Went through and found the source to this guys thread, and most of his pictures are still working :thumbup:

You can add my build thread, it's pretty exhaustive from beginning to end:

I'll see what else I can dig up to possibly make this forum worth while again.

I was thinking of going the cheap route - and compared piecing together a manual kit vs. buying ECS' manual kit. Here is what I found (MKV/A3 Fitment) :

To make sure I had all of the right stuff, I would probably wait one more paycheck, and set aside the extra $300. Or save $500 and wait for a V2 sale at bagriders. My 2cents.
