Brother-in-law's Jetta. This is the guy who married my sister and who I entrust with my Miata when the Army sends me places...

Anyway, he's in the middle of lowering his VW.

Here's how it looked when I saw it last:



And under the knife:

I just dont get the point but part of me appreciates and respects the ingenuity.

Aesthetics mostly, I guess. It's not like the Jetta is a world class performance car. Meh.

Plus he's Mexican, so it's in his genes.

So will it actually raise the wheels off the ground? Looks like it's higher than the frame rails.

Don't think so, not with bags, anyway. Gravity will simply lower it until the frame touches the ground and it'll stop there. Knowing him, that won't be low enough - on his Nissan truck he ground the pinchwelds off and drug through half of the rocker before some girl rear-ended him hard enough to total it.

Damn, that strut tower looks like it is going to be in the hood but good work nonetheless.
