That would be my rear beam. We have solid rear beams that push forward when the car is slammed. The way to rectify this is by using great plates. But with bags it's a bit of a pain so I leave it be. Thanks for the comp though.

The wheels are 18s. And the jetta is a 2004. I know the 99s were hell. Two of my friends had them. The 2004 was the last of the body style so (knocking on wood) most of the gremlins are worked out.

The E36 looks like it would be okay, but there's no way that Jetta doesn't rub.

Nice E36, by the way

The jetta is on bags. So no rubbing unless I ride super low. The e36 is fine.

Not sure what you mean because rat is the last word that'll describe me unless it's a new term for someone who gets laid a lot
