Finally got the coils and control arms on. Dropped it an inch. I love the way it handles now. Still debating the camber plates as it will take some extensive cutting and it will have to be positioned correctly. I may just sell them and then get the ones that don't need cutting, but will still give up to 2 degrees adjustment. I'm also having issues with the speed sensors for the ABS. I must have knocked them loose or something so I'll have to get to those this weekend. I'll put up a pic of the new drop later today.

Sounds great Wes, is the front suspension on the Jetta MacPherson or double wishbone design?

If the MINI is the double wishbone, then the Jetta must be macpherson because the control arms were really easy to switch out.

I love how it handles now, it feels so much more connected to the road now. I need to figure out how to do those camber plates now. The guy that i bought them from said he paid $500 for install and that is just too much. I forgot to mention that I also got these from him for a great price for when we both have adjustable camber plates installed:

Longacre Caster / Camber Gauge w/ Magnetic Adapter

and Longacre Toe-In Plates
