A humble article on my first finished event....(on JVAB 50mm!!)

I have been very lazy to post the pics of the subie top mounts with the JVAB 50mms set up I got what feels like forever ago....but one of these days I will post some pics of the set-up. It held up well and the suggestion for slightly softer springs was spot on for this event.

Thanks to Bakerz Dozen Racing, Banchwerks, Team O'Neil and JVAB!!!

Also, thanks to so many people that chime in on this forum and add there bits of wisdom for VW and rally in general! there are too many of you out there but Josh, Kris, Robert and many others!

Thanks guys, my first outing was a success! Looking forward to NEFR2016!

Are those Rallye headlights? If so where did you get them?

Hey Steve, the car actually came with those headlights installed so I am not exactly sure where they came from. The previous owner did say that he had to get them from overseas but other than that I am not sure.

Those Arne not Rallye headlights - Rallye headlights are lower.

The ones you have are what - on this side of the pond - are known as Jetta headlights - but with projectors in them. You can buy them pre made.
The reason they are known as Jetta headlights is that the Golf never came with those square head lights over here - only the Jetta.

Thanks for the clarification, I'd never seen projector aero lights before, you have a link for them? Have been looking at options as mine are toast. Had euro aero before and the beam pattern was much better as was the H4 bulb selection.

They seem to be made by In Pro.
