Ripped out the bulkhead, ceiling tay and roof liner; fitted the new Passat W8 light into the ceiling tray and ran the wiring through to the light switch. Also fitted the side door rail cover and rear door handle cover.

Can anyone help me source a website that’s selling Vmaxx Extreme Kits for a MK3? Looking to lower my van now and struggling to find a seller Cheers guys.
Looking to go for either fully dampening and upgrade to Gaz shocks, or a full dampening set!

Today I bought my first caddy!!! :D
It's a 2010 reg, a few battle scars, but much better than most I've seen, ideally I want to facelift or put a touran front end on, so one day it will have a trip to the body shop to get sorted.

Will carry out a full service & proper wash next weekend.

I have 2 more holes at the back I can drop.
The front I can drop 40mm more.
I carry a lot of gear for work so I want to see how it handles before I drop in more.

You reckon if you were to drop those last 2 holes and go down fully on the front it’ll be a lot lower then?

If you want to go really low on the back you either need a wheel centralising kit or go for the super low kit from darkside

Well I have thought about going for that, but then got to source two front coilovers, additional shocks whereas I could buy the whole kit and then upgrade the shocks just not sure on how low the standard Vmaxx kit goes on the lowest setting

I have only dropped half of what i can.
A super low kit from darkside will probably lower

I don’t want to go super low, simply because of driving on site daily. My only concern is I don’t want to buy the Vmaxx kit and put it on the lowest setting and then not be happy with it not going as low as I’d want it, for it to be reasonable on a daily basis

Go through some build threads and I’m sure you’ll be able to gauge the heights the vmaxx can go as its a pretty popular kit. My van was on them for instance, before I went to air ride. I never had mine set on their lowest and it was plenty low enough for static suspension on a work van running 19’s.

That’s stunning that dude. I’m guessing you were in the Vmaxx standard kit and not Extreme? If so then they go pretty low and that’s a nice height. I want to daily it on 19s and I work on site and have to drive on there.
I was thinking of going for the Vmaxx and getting Gaz shocks.
