Quoting a post from a month ago, that's what happens when you don't visit daily anymore. Anyway, I'm 6'4" and have V7 seats in my bug and love them. I haven't tried with a helmet, but driving around town isn't a problem. I used a donor pair of 02 WRX seats and was able to swap the necessary drivers/passenger components around and now have the height adjustment on the US drivers side.

I've been driving my car more lately and have been making small changes. Got rid of the lightwerks harness and used my OEM HID wiring and ballast location. So much cleaner and don't have to worry about cheap components crapping out. Next on the list is to transfer over the HID components to a new driver headlight that the mounting isn't smashed to bits.

My garage is a mess, but at least I have space to work.

I recently picked up this bugeye wagon with 220k miles that is on its second motor,I'm slowly bringing it back to life. so far it has a new axle, new brakes, coilovers, the whiteline RCA kit, and a fresh alignment.
Next is tracking down the source of my p0171

I think I'll be putting on an RCA kit as well sometime next year. The ball joint has started making noise after 7ish years. Might go with Superpro again or Whiteline.

I am skeptical of whiteline products after they shifted manufacturing and seeing a few of their balljoints fail. Some places adamantly advise against using them due to previous failures , the oem balljoints are cheap and last hilariously long.

Unfortunately, the options for relatively inexpensive roll correction are slim to none at this point. SuperPro merged with Whiteline a couple of years ago, or they are at least owned by the same company.

And Cygnus (who is not a fan of WL) recommends the WL kit now.

Yeah that is the unfortunate problem

I also would not take anything Cygnus says as he is a shill for whatever he is selling at the moment

I have also heard whiteline quality going downhill but also the issues with the balljoints coming out were years ago and fixed.


I will say though that their customer service was good, one of the ball joints i got, the hole for the pin was drilled too high (or low?) so i could get the ball joint in, but not the pin once the castle nut was on.

i sent them an email, and a photo of what happened and they sent a replacement even though i didn't buy directly from them.


time will tell how long these last.

Iíve been happy with the Superpro stuff so far, and Whitelineís ALK, so maybe Iíve just been lucky.

It's been a while. Getting closer to being road ready, but life keeps getting busy!

Shik, check your messages!

I got my new roof vent latch installed, same one as MXB. Love it and now don't have to worry about the OEM latch cracking.

Also got my HID retrofits into a new housing that isn't being held together by a pound of ABS glue. Now just need to re-level/re-aim and I'll be set. Next project on the list is to sand and clear the headlights as they are getting a little hazy.
