The springs were bright blue and the struts were orange. That's all I can tell you is that they were the ones that lowered the car the least. You should've seen the ones that were removed....208k on what looked like factory parts! :eek:

At Jesse's now to replace the turbo!

Konis we put on last week are STR.Ts I believe. With the Koni sport springs. Seems like a decent combo.

Not a bad price on that suspension kit! Less than we paid for Neuspeed SofSports and Koni Reds.

if you wind up needing an oil supply line and he doesnt have one, I have a spare in my garage, let me know if you need it.

I do believe he got an even better price than the one shown...they were on sale when he bought 'em. I got to do the test drive so Matt could do boost logs....hoollllyyyy s*%t is it fast! :D

He's returning the pre-bent one for a refund. Matt had braided steel.

Thank you, though Aaron. :D

And one more thing....thanks to Matt for putting up with my bad jokes and silly questions I'm sure you've heard a thousand times. I am happier and happier to be a part of this community with every person I get to know. The tact you all have for dealing with as crazy a gal as I am is astounding! :D:D

Just wanted to say that Matt did an outstanding job on our Mk4. Just took it to my local shop for an alignment and they commented on how well the recent work was done, said I had a top notch mechanic. The owner of this shop and the mechanic who did the work both have Mk4 TDIs and were really impressed.

In other news, I was in Chicago yesterday and did an intake cleaning, fuel and air filter change, 01M fluid and filter service. And, of course, threw in remote windows :D

Headed somewhat out of the way towards Indianapolis. Friend of mine lives down here, though he just got back to me and said he's working insane hours this weekend. He offered me a place to stay earlier in the week, but turns out he's insanely busy this weekend. Oh well!

Just have to visit the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum myself I guess!

Chat, he'll be up here in Nor-Cal next weekend (Sep 29/30) and at the Bay Area GTG in San Pablo Oct 19-21, so that should give you a very rough idea of when he'll be back down south.
