    Will take a while for progress pics. Lips will take a month or so to make as there's a backlog locally from the maker. Gold bolts have been ordered, center caps orders, centers are off to get painted when I get the quote back, and the hex's are off to get plated when the quote is completed.

    I've also bought a second set of BBS's which will be stepping 18 once the RS's are done.

    Have torn them apart though. I intend to build them myself.

    Updates (finally)

    Got my first wheel accompanied by the Waffle & Hex Cap back from the Polisher. Decided to test one before I went all in and I can safely say I am hugely satisfied.





    The lips have been set back as the people making them told me one time and they've been put back over a month (FML) so I've got further time to clean up the Barrels, get my Gold Bolts in and have the faced re-drilled and Polished.

    Had some pretty shit-house luck earlier this week. Front right bag blew for no apparent reason. Car was literally just sitting in the driveway. Looks like the clamp failed. Time to upgrade from Slam Series struts to Performance Series.







    On another note, myself and Vinh got a fairly decent feature in this month's Performance VW Magazine. Go check it out.

    Finally have an update on the wheels. I finished building them yesterday. Just giving the Sikaflex a day or so to dry before we chuck the tyres on.

    I don't know driving in another way which isn't risky. Each one has to improve himself. Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than other's.

    Well, the BBS's are finally on. I think they came out spectacularly. Final specs are 17x11 +3 front and 17x12.5 -3 rear. Enjoy a pic dump.































    Of course, here's some close-ups too.
