I wouldn't care, it's not a biggy ;)
Unfortunate if you've already bought the dynamic hubs though :?

Exactly, I already have the dynamic ones and tbh I really love how people get stuck and look at my wheels when driving next to them on the highway. :D :lol:

And we're set!

DRC DGR painted black ("Pretoria inspired") with Continental SportContact 6 XL 235/40/19 (DOT 0920)!
The car looks great, the hubcaps fitted almost perfectly (needed a bit of tape on one of them, in the edges of the back side).

Now that I see the car like that I'm more persuaded that it needs a lowering... and maybe I should had gone for the BROCK B38 :? :? :?

More updates here... After contemplating about going for a full coilover set or only a set of Eibach Pro-Kit springs, I decided to go with the latter.
I spoke to a couple of companies that could benefit from me buying a full coilover set but they both suggested to just replace the springs since the car merely has 7000km on the clock and as such the suspension will cope with that for now. It also saved me roughly 800 euros. I'll just replace the whole suspension in ~3-4 years (or before I hit the 45,000-50,000km to be on the safe side and then I'll go for a KW Variant.

With the Eibach Pro-Kit I got an approx. 30mm lowering. I'm very happy with the result, the car hasn't really lost it's character, it looks more like an Audi Allroad Quattro tbh. I felt that with the 19" wheels, there was too much of a gap between the wheel and the car. It is still quite comfortable and you feel more of the road, it gives a feeling of better grip and better sense.
Also the ACC didn't need any calibration, so it all went just fine!

Here's a before (top) and after (bottom) lowering collage and a couple of pics with the end result.

Next up, an exhaust which I hope to make it somewhere in the end of September. And I think I'll stop after that for a while, or the Mrs. will kick me for spending all my money on the car. :)

What did you do to the rear bumper to get rid of the fake exhaust bits? Or is it a new bumper?
Well spotted, I hadn't even noticed.

Hi both! Apologies for not responding in a while; I was put in a project that literally took my entire life for the past 2 months. :)
I finished last week and now that I'm done with some other backlog stuff, I'm back online to one of my favourite forums!
The rear bumper is the original one and has been modified.
I had a car painter who I trust to remove the fake covers and create plastic / PVC fillings, glue them (with some extra fiberglass on the back) and repaint the lower part.

So as I mentioned in the previous reply, I had been crazy busy and once I finished with work, I ran for the final (for the time being) improvement I wanted to do to Clementine. A new exhaust with a valve to selectively get more or less noise for relaxed trips and nice noise when doing small drives or attending car events. :)
The downpine , catalyst and OPF filters remained original for warranty purposes and everything from the OPF filters and back was removed. The middle resonator was replaced by a 76mm pipe and the rear muffler has been replaced by one that has 1 input and 2 outputs and 4 exhaust tips in gloss black to maintain the orange-black look.
The 1st output is like in every exhaust muffler, it goes through a resonator section that reduces the sound. The 2nd output is in a direct line from the input and bypasses the resonator section and thus increases the sound.
On the 2nd output, a remote controlled valve has been installed to selectively open and close that one, depending on my mood. :)

Below you'll see a mini clip while the car is running in neutral and I'm playing around with the remote control, followed by a couple of pictures with the result.
Once I have some time and the Mrs available, I'll go for a ride to warm the engine well and do some revving and record the sounds with the valve off and on.

First class job as usual doggy, nice work :mrgreen:
Sounds great even when ticking over :p

I've been on a few TRoc forums and this has to be the most modified TRoc I've seen to date 😉👌

Thanks! 🙂
I managed to get it where I wanted. I think once the warranty expires in ~3,5 years, I'll do anything more that I'm thinking of :D

What more could you possibly modify even 😂 Loving the exhaust😍&#x1f44c-1f3fc;
A lot!! Haha, once the warranty expires, I will probably go for a bigger turbo (thinking of an IS38), different downpipe, sportscat, remove the OPF filters, and maybe pistons/rods. I'd like to get it close to ~350hp in the end.
And at some point in the future I want to have the hard plastic dashboard and door parts redone with alcantara on them (similar to what I've done to my Polo 6N).
See...? There are still plenty of things that can be done 😂

Here's some revving with the valve closed and open. The difference from outside is noticeable (not so much from inside the car).
