Over the Hill

well my 08 jetta rolled over 100,000 miles. that gives me over 230,000 miles driven in a VW counting my mk4 and scirocco. so now that the jetta is on its way to death its in need of some help. the stock suspension is pretty much toasted. so what better solution than some ST coilovers. ordered those and a basic suspension rebuild kit. so waiting on the coilovers and other goodies. oh and tapatalk is nice. i couldnt stand the mobile web version.

quick run down of plans for the car.
coilovers and suspension/steering refresh
serpentine belt and waterpump
sparkplugs
maybe coilpacks
clean MAF(never did it)
new air filter(want to build a CAI or a box for it
respray sideskirts
fix fog lights
tranny fluid and filter. this one scares me.


and when i aint driving, im flying.

Its crazy what a little low can do to make the car look so much cleaner. Interested to see how you fix the rust also, my brother's b6a4 fender is toast.

primed it

honestly only spent 10 minutes on it. im probably going to pull the fender to treat the rust underneath. for now it will do.

I am still alive. Recently did a water pump diy video which will post. Also welded in a new flex pipe section. I feel like a kid again today. Just went and picked up OEM BBS CH028's for the Jetta. 18x8 235/40's ET43

Those look real clean on a mk5. Did you just go with a generic flexpipe? We're about to weld in a new flex pipe on my brother's b6.
