    My Passat R36 wagon (long time coming)

    Ok so most of you know me and my car so i thought it was time for a build thread.

    Car started 12 months ago as a stock black r36 delivered to me New from barloworld in Mascot. Bunch of knobs there but most dealers are.

    Step 1. First thing was drive the car from the dealer straight down to Marty at FHRX for some sound. I cant stand to have a car without a decent set-up and that's just what i did with the R36. The aim of this install was stealth. Most of my other cars were big and bright installs so this had to be different. The link below is just the start of it.

    Step 2. I heard about the guys at Evolve down in Vic doing some crafty work on r36's so they put me in touch with the guys at City Performance Centre and the results were great.

    Step 3. Exhaust.....first an Evolve, then a Supersprint and following that an Arqray.....hated them all so im back to standard.

    Step 3.1 Carbon Fibre Gruppe M (great sound a bit of performance)

    Step 4. Suspension, at the time got the car lowered on H&R springs and a set of OEM Lambo wheels.. the car stayed this way for almost 6 months....then the wheel whoring started.




    Step 5.1 Set of Alpil wheels
    Step 5.2 Set of Rotiforms
    Step 5.3 Set of Bentley GTC wheels (no photo will insert here....Frenchie ran them for a while)
    Step 5.4 A set of Work Varienzo TS1
    Step5.5 Wedsports (no photos but they look fkn HOT)

    Step 6. I decided that i wanted this car to go LOWER>>>>so i got myself a set of KW v3, the ride was so much better than standard, it handled well and just overall felt great. I don't know if my front bumper appreciated it as its been licking the road ever since.

    Step 7. Brembo BBK (insert photo here) these bad boys are red and BIG.... got the rears painted brembo red to match the fronts...

    Step 8. NEW set of wheels.....these will be the best yet watch this space...
