Even with the turbo install I won't be spinning the front wheels on this thing.  But when it comes to stopping in a hurry it does that super fine.

I do find that the wider tires catch more of the crappy road surfaces however.  I was looking to raise the front end a couple of inches to even it out with the rear but that will have to wait until the new struts need replacement.  Which may be earlier than later due to the bigger tires. 

The ride is so much better than the 14" Snowflake rims I have on the Rabbit 2 door.

Washed and Waxed canopy that was painted last year but not protected from the weather very well.

Undercoated the rear wheel arches recently on the ol' 85 Golf as the original had peeled off and bare metal was exposed
