Looks like a Citi to me...
2014 - VW Jetta 6 - 1.6 TDi DSG - Moonrock Silver.
2000 - VW Golf 3.5 Cabrio - 2.0 - Moonlight Blue Pearl Metallic.
1980 - VW MK1 GT - 1.8 Carb - Rallye Red viewtopic.php?f=11&t=153861
MK1 Build Register: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=192835

Racing is meant for the RACE track - deal with it...

remember to measure from the center of your wheel to the floor for best effect
lots of people measure from the wheel nuts but with every full rotation the nuts are on the same place, so unless you count full rotations, it will never line up and you will be out with a few mm each time

That is true, I made that mistake so many times with the polo and never really got accurate lows.
