She was actually not too happy when sonny was using my M3 convertible to school earlier! Pulling too many birdie, I guess ;)

Bro's.....been to Sunway,Klang and Shah Alam to look for rims.
No luck in finding 17in that is 5x112.

Anyone knows anywhere that stock them?

NO Taiwan made or replica types. No stock VW either.

My ideal would be BBS RG-F in 16in forged. But almost all shops i went to havent heard of it.

My selection so far are

BBS CH 17in
BBS CO 16/17in
Enkei RPF1 17in black
OZ Chrono HT 17in

Except for the BBS designs i prefer 5 or 6 spoke rims.

Ex-owner also welcome? A classic B5 Passat 1.8T, Wetterauer chipped. Sold in Apr '11 before I relocated to Shanghai.  :'( It's a tough people's car. It clocked 345K km (of which 220K km chipped mileage) before I passed it to the next owner, and it's still running!

My well blessed Passat captured at Hatyai in 2009:


I previously ordered all my VAG parts from Singapore and Germany without issue as I used to work in FTZ at Penang.  ;D

Zeo, mind to share what's the different for dimsport and revo?


when i was running dimsport stage 1 the gains compared to stock were pretty amazing. feels like a totally different car.
the throttle seems a lot lighter making daily driving a breeze. but my high end pull wasn't so great. after 140km/h the pull isn't strong.
same thing happens when I'm carrying 3 passengers. the pull isn't there anymore.

whereas redo stage 2 Immediately after my remap, i carried 3 passengers the car still pulls very hard. maybe because i have even more torque now ?
I have yet to drive it above 150km/h usually only doing city driving so no chance to compare the higher end.

I have yet to drive a dimsport stage 2 so i can't really give a fair comparison.
but from what i gather from other users seems like dimsport is more suited for track use
as the turbo spools a bit later. so as u enter a high speed corner u will be slightly behind other cars but on the exit no one can catch u =)

revo is more for everyday driving. over in the USA revo is the most powerful map out there and slightly cheaper than apr too.

but honestly if u don't track that often the slight differences between maps r insignificant.

I'm off to exotic mods now to check out some bodykit. =)

The rims really makes a huge difference in appearance, very aggressive looking.

By the way, am a VW owner here too, driving a Golf GTI MK6... :)
