    You will have to remove handbrake hadle before removing that cup holder compartment, unless you want to do it risky way:bend it.

    I have the same smoked side markers as that golf on the photo ;d, i also lowered the suspension (H&R cup kit).And tinting the windows will be my next step after isntalling carputer - lets keep it safe.

    If you plan to mod your car tmtuning its a great site to buy from. I'm going to get those headlights (pic1 pic2)for my dub.

    I've already done a bunch of stuff to my car. I thought of going with those headlights that you just showed me but I think I will just stick with my 'mk4 looks' right now. I also have H&R coilovers, front and rear stress bars, smoked turn signals and sidemarkers and FK tailights.

    As for performance, I have a magnaflow exhaust, DSR 256 cams and this . My intake manifold is in the process of getting polished so it should be "blinged out" pretty soon. I'm a regular on www.vwvortex.com and go by the same name.

    I plan on mounting my screen in the cup holder area and my case either under the passenger seat or in a euro upper glove box if I can find one cheap.
