lol just look closely at mine... it has some major dents... the hood is speckled white from stone chips... actually more like the previous owner drove into a dumping gravel truck... and theres spots everywhere someone tried to touch up (with a non-matching color)... lol thats why your body appears way better...lol

Agree - Detailed list please!

Since I'll have to keep the Wagon rather utilitarian for now, hoping to play a bit with the Golf...

I went simple and cheap...Raceland Ultimo's...the wheels are OEM Huff's, offset et51, adaptors are 30mm rear, 20mm front. The coil overs are almost all the way up in the rear...12.5 inches from the edge of where the center cap goes, or 24.5 inchs from the ground to the fender...tires are 225 40R 18's.
I'm planning to go air in the spring, thats why I went cheap...BTW the Ultimo's are incredible for the price, and I would recommend them for any MKIV!

Do you find the ride comfortable with the Racelands? Is it bouncy?

Not really, way stiffer than stock, took a bit of trial and error to find the right height, as I don't want to remove my fender liners. The ride is stiff enough to corner remarkably, but also notice every little crack in the road. I also haven't seen a MPG decrease with the wider wheels.

Ultimos being so inexpensive, really makes me wonder what a 1700$ set would be like...I'm that happy with them!
