    I have a mk6 I love my mk6 but your mk5 was absolutely gorgeous in both forms.

    My misses has a Pirelli Edition and I am trying to convince her to let me buy her some gold BBS lol

    You have done an awesome job with your current project but I still believe it looked its best bagged no wide body and rotiforms

    Keep going!

    Have to agree, not to keen on a widebody MK6 golf, they're too bubbly.

    Lots of hard work put into it, so as long as you like it who cares

    Pull your head in. It may not be every bodies taste but VADERR has put a lot of time, effort and money into this car. Full respect into somebody doing it differently!

    IMO I love when the R32 was black! That's my style, but hey. Point out another wide bodied Golf as good as this!

    Jon, haters gonna hate :S

    I have a total of -5.2 aired up with the Swoops Tops and Megan Racing roll center adjusters. Rides the same as it did before.

    Cheers Scotty, I'm not too fussed with people not liking it. I don't modify my car for others. I do it solely to please myself. Next up is a set of wheels I'm building and looking further into doing the TTE480 thanks to you.

    Thanks for the info bud.

    Are these the swoops plates?

    https://swoopsbuilt.com/collections/...d-camber-plate

    They are 2deg fixed. So if I'm calculating right, the megan racing adjusters can go roughly -3deg. 😀

    That's correct, my stock alignment had me at around -1. The Swoops Tops (correct in your link) gives an additional -2 and the Megan Racing Adjusters gave me -3 (bitch of an install). You can also get the Superpro Ball Joints (got them on Order) for an additional -1 to -1.5 of adjustment. Max you can get is around -6.5 which is probably a lot more than I'll ever need. You don't have to adjust them to negative though. They can be adjusted to give a positive camber I believe or help neutralize it.
