Wheels need spline drive bolts and I couldn't locate any longer ones for spacers in town so ordered some on eBay. I threw last yrs winter tires on cause I was gonna use these for a month but don't think ill have bolts. Oh well ordered some winter tires and will stud them on the rs4 wheels. I'll have awesome traction when I go to the mountains this winter!

Anybody have their headlights apart. Either doing retrofits or Joey modded? I need to take my headlights apart to install the billet adjusters. Just nervous about heating them to take them apart. Don't want to screw them up. Would like to get in the new adjusters as I broke on the plastic ones and can't use the levelers until I fix it. Also, I imagine ill have to pull the 3m off the lenses? If anyone is interested in giving me a hand I'll buy the brewskis.

Sidenote/. About to put the bunny away for hibernation. Think ill have to out a new clutch in it. It's slipping on hard pulls...too much power lol.

like the wheels man!

I pulled the lights apart on my 2002 Golf. Probably simular construction to your jetta. I didnt heat them just took my time and trimmed the silicone and pulled, and trimmed, and pulled .... Was ten time harder than a mk2 light but manageable. I'm sure theres a heat methode to make it easier.
