    Hopefully the mods wont move my post

    I realised not many people actually have a their own "This is my car" thread, so here goes;

    Stock

    You all know what a 2001 B5.5 Passat looks like.

    Then I hit 50,000 miles

    Taken by my passenger



    Stock wheels, added OEM fogs, Hofele badgeless grille, chrome mirror covers, short antenna, Brembo MAX discs, Greenstuff pads and some stereo stuff.



    Trying out my artistic licence



    Fast forward 5,555 miles

    Yup, I'm a geek, so what :P



    I'm now lowered using a Koni Sports Suspension Kit, I've added an A6/S4 hybrid upper strut brace, tinted my rear lights and added an M3 lip spoiler - the badgeless grille is in the garage being refurbished - I hate stones and motorways





    Further forward, still the same, only the grille is now back, I've moved house and bought a new camera.



    Suspension settles a little more and I finally get some new wheels!





    <shameless plug>That's it so far, make sure you buy Golf+ (April 07) to see the feature on another of my clubs.</shameless plug>

    Update - Spacers now added - pics to follow

    Update 2

    66,666



    Dirty;



    Still to come;

    Tinted windows
    Leather interior (hen and teeth are the keywords on this one)
    Revamped rear lights
    Painted engine covers
    Cruise control
    VWAudi Forum stickers - see below to get yours

    Thanks for looking

    Replying to your own thread before anyone else does ranks up there as one of the sadder aspects of the internet but...

    Just bought Golf+ - nice feature on our club and my rear end is in there too

    Ouch! Your words, they hurt me so.

    They're ASA ST2s, 17 x 7.5 (I think) - ASA are licensed by BBS.

    But Merc wheels would fit. You'll need hub adapters to sort out the centre bore differences and different blots (M14 vs M12)

    First off, I don't believe your passenger took that photo.

    And... tinted, you say? The rear lights are tinted? Cool! Just cos in that first photo they look coloured in silver? Then there's a black and white photie later that you can see the cluster through.

    Is that just a tint or some sort of cover?

    Nice car btw. Sorry to be late to the party. (I'm new and so clicking on some of these links for the first time)

    They did, honest

    Well, when I say tinted, I obviously mean sprayed with reflex silver paint

    I had to swap back to the original tail lights so you're right in that the cluster is easily visible in the latter pics. The kind policeman said something about rear reflectors and poor light output During the day they're not as obvious as they should be, at night they're fine.

    And thanks for the comments
