Builder Stance!
Looks class man.
Expensive mod though, fifty bags of gravel.

What on earth are you doing with all that aggregate man?

That's where the original low rider look came from - 4 big Mexicans and a few bags of gravel in the trunk

discs are standard golf G60, you do need to redrill them to allow fitment on the 300's hub; and you do want to give this a lot of attention as wrong drilled holes can result in disc failure or a wheel that is very out of balance...

1.4 diff in it mate. Shafts box and diff all standard to the car so are indicated mileage as per speedo.
Disks are golf G60 they need boring and redrilling to fit the 340.
Glad your enjoying the car. She does go well.
