    Fran - The Joms have new shortened bumpstops supplied with them. I checked mine werent riding on them up front (Im right down) but they werent. Still 1-2cm travel until it rides on the stop.

    Ash - Im fine with the Joms in the 6 months Ive had them on. For under £200 I think they do the job, and arent too harsh in terms of ride (although the Mrs disagrees). Only gripe is the fronts could do with another 25mm of drop. Someone said to me you were getting custom springs to solve it?

    Well not really done alot beside gather some parts for the interior and new alloys. Wont be putting any photos up or anything till after Ultimate Dubs in March.
    Finally have a set of alloys im happy with and 19s:wub:

    Two photos of my old BBS CKII Splits only photos i have. They were 18x8 ET32 and filled the arches lovely but with the 225/40 on they would rub when i had more than 1 passenger. My plan with them was to change tyres for a bit of stretch and go 9J for the rear. For a staggered fitment. But they didnt last long they were on for about 2-3weeks. Before i had an offer on them that i couldnt refuse.
    So they went to a friend in reading with a MK5 GT TDI(already told him once he comes to sell them i want first dibs:laugh:)

    Thanks Steve :thumbsup:

    Hi Rich,

    Long time no speak fella. How are things? Thanks for the comment mate :happy:
    Got them resprayed they were letting the front down too much lol. Will you be attending Audi In The Park?

    Thanks mate :icon_thumright:

    LMAO! I'm sorry i promise next month (JULY) i will come get it as i got to go see Ash.
    How long you had it now since April lol?
    Hi Jay,

    Cheers, it was between lava grey and black when i bought it. But i am glad i got lava grey :wub: I do miss the CKs :( should of kepted them but got 19" now which are a lot better than any of my old wheels.

    Appreciate the comment Fraggles :wub:

    Alright Rich :)

    Cheers fella. Regarding the interior i'll post some photos next month once nearly everything is fitted :) Nothing special but will do for now.

    :laugh: They wont be going any where Fran. Dont you worry! The only time they will be coming off is to go in storage and when i put 19" speedlines on for dailys. As i dont want to ruin or be refurbing my current alloys all the time. Might just keep them for shows.
