Yeah must admit i like the original wheels think they suit the car

Wheels are lovely but because there are so many spokes they'll cover up your inevitable brake upgrades which are even nicer to look at!

Keep your CK and fit them to go to shows and gatherings, unless you can sell them for a good price, of course.

Brakes are easily transferred and it's something that any car benefits from. :smiley:

I've fit lowering springs to both my Golfs and I wouldn't have stock springs again. I don't find the H&R -30 mm too harsh for the Ed. 30. The adjustable Konis must help a bit too, since they're set to handle the odd bump on the road. The SuperPro ALK is always a must have.

Other than that and an exhaust you shouldn't need much more done. Good luck and have fun with your V6! :drinking:

I love those wheels........




(I might be a bit biased though cos I have a set in the garage to refurb and fit to my GTI :grin: :grin:)
lol but they look pretty standard like any other multi spoked wheel compared to the phase 1 set I've had fitted  :P

Yeah, they're not the most exciting :smiley:
But I do think they suit the car quite well :happy2:

They're bloody heavy though :surprised:

They'll only be on there until I can afford a set of OZ superturismo Le Mans!!
(Which may in fact be never cos they are soooo expensive :ashamed: :ashamed:)

Really nice looking R32 Andy  :drool: will you actually drive this  :P ?

I was going to buy a R32 last month but decided on another Edition 30.

I would personally definitely swap the brakes over, it would be a big shame to sell them on the GTTDI, its your decision though bud  :happy2:.

Looks really smart!

It wouldn't be fun if it was easy, I just wish it wasn't this much fun.

If you decide to sell the wheels and brakes off your tdi let me make you an offer.

Agreed! I never went looking for a mk5 with them, they were a bonus. Now, I don't think I would go for a car without them!

Great pic and glad to hear you're enjoying the R32!

Lovely car! Worlds apart in note eh? Loved my MK4 and MK5 '33.
Do think you should get the CKs on though! They'll barely affect handling. 19s are optional from from the factory on MK6s and MK7 Rs so can't be that detrimental.

Ace shot of the xenons. I had to compromise on them when I bought the car and recently retrofitted some - can't wait to get the shutters hooked up now!!
