Thanks, just listed it above. Swapped on my OEM rubber and listed the Pretorias for sale last night.
What's done to your SE so far?

Mmmm, Pretorias! Unfortunately, nothing done to the SE at this point. I will probably keep it low-key, with some wheels, vwr springs, and I was checking out the AWE Track edition exhaust as well.

These are my cheap wheels at stock height
They are Rays 57Xtreme knock offs that I got at Tire Rack. 19x8.5 +45 with 245/35/19 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500s.


This is post lowering with Eibach springs, 034 Dynamic + camber mounts, and RSB.


The other pic above was of my OZ Ultraleggeras before lowering the car, which are 19x8+45 with the OEM Golf R Continental rubber.
These actually sit in almost 7mm from the other wheels, so they look a little sunk post lowering. I have 10mm spacers on the way for all four corners, and will post up when I get those and install. Should look pretty good at that point.

I'll also post up wheel alignment specs here in the next day or two after I get the car on the rack.

What MPG do you get? is the ecu similarly open source? Looks like a great choice now that I'm in my 30's. Still hope to keep the evo but its looking more and more difficult to justify...

Average about 27mpg on pump and 22mpg on E30. That’s mostly city with pretty hard driving mixed in. No open source, but Cobb Accessport and their protuner network is now supported, which is great.
