    I like the Mk5 front end on those wagons a lot more than the Mk6 one.

    It seems to me that the drive side headlight is aimed just slightly too high, when I was in front of you last night the left side was flashing me a lot more then the right. Other then that looks good. Don't get me wrong that one issue is nothing really, at least you don't have drop ins....

    completely agree. I like the mk6 golf/gti, but really don't think that frontend works on the wagon

    big thanks for the help for sure...
    nope.. no HIDs in the fogs. They're OEM Euro projectors with yellow halogen bulbs. I may install an H11 HID kit at some point... I'm mostly concerned about where the focal point will be. I don't want to turn my fogs into lights that glare much.

    thanks..
    I definitely need to adjust the lights still. I need to find a good flat surface up against a wall so I can do that soon.

    before I started driving I was big on taking pictures of peoples cars and events, not so much now that I'm the driver.

    yeah... I used to ride as a passenger a lot, both because I wasn't always sure about my mk2's, and because I was more into taking photos on cruises. Now I typically enjoy driving more.

    I shoot less at most events now anyway.. it ended up being a lot of work for almost zero pay-off (whether that just being people seeing the photos, being published, etc.)
