In the TUV it says 9.9kg but they weigh about 10.2kg. Anyway, they should be lighter than the Denver/Monza 17".
Also in Germany they cost 129 EURO/piece ~50 EURO less than in Romania  :scared: (www.volkswagen.de). They are made my Ronal in the Czech Republic.

I just love the colour of your car. So much better than that Tornado Red stuff.

The GTI isn't just a machine. It's very much a living, breathing thing.

 :smiley:. When I chose the color my first pick was the R blue. The previous car had the same color so, it was not a tragedy that the R blue only came on a R.
I saw tornado red but I did not like that color very much, specially because it is not metallic. So, I wanted to go wild and chose the Sunset Red, a color I never saw live, before the date I picked up the car.
In the end, I am really happy I chose this color. I think this was the best color (for me at least) available at the time of the purchase and I really love this color.
Below are some older images (the car is with its OEM sport suspension so it is 30mm higher than with B16)  :smiley: for the guys who like the color  :pomppomp:.

P.S. Sorry for the multitude of photos on this topic  :smiley:

Thanx for this picture !!  :congrats:

Rex, your TT arms came without the rear bushes?
Will you combine them with the Whiteline ALK?

Love this car!  :happy2:

Bet it already handles well with the mk5 chassis, H&R antiroll bars and those Bilsteins. That's the setup I have on my mk4 track car.

The arms came with the bushings but I took them off. Now the bushings are at my mechanic who is trying to separate the bushings from the brackets.
I will use the OEM TT bushing with the OEM brackets.

Thank you.
It handles pretty well, but I think I can still improve the handling (I can't say the same thing about the power).

The TT bushes are the best OEM, but wouldn't this suit your demands even better?

Well, the OEM bushes are included with the TT arms so using something else would not make much sense at the moment (I would through money of the window).
And to make matters worse, I kind of need money for other mods  :smiley:
But I might think of some other bushings in the future. Thanks for the advice!
