I'm starting out at $475 for the coilovers.

I could use some, right now I just have the ones from my Jetta.


I'll bring them with me to the Euro car show.

I put the stock Jetta springs and struts on the GTI. It looks like its ready for offroad duty, but until I manage to meet up for the stock GTI springs it will have to do. The car is up and running and I have been slowly fixing all the rigged stuff. I managed to sell the coilovers for the purchase price of the car so its kinda nice having a free GTI. Now I get to put in all the hours fixing the previous owners "modifications". The wiring is the worst part. Numerous stereo installs, alarm system, keyless entry, and headlights on toggle switches. It's a good thing I have a donor for some of the part of the harness.

I am kinda surprised the GTI has a smaller sway bar than the Jetta donor. The GTI is about 15mm and the Jetta is about 19mm. I am not sure since it's gonna be a daily if I am gonna polyeurethane it or just put in the factory better suspension bushings.

If anyone has a headliner for this thing i need one.
