They have been on the car almost two years with no chipping or fading so far.

The front "GTI" emblem is just hand-painted.
What paint did you use on the GTI badge? Mine are currently plasti dipped, but I'm going to get black gloss VW emblems and the color matching inlays.

There are some little chips on the "GTI" emblem after two years / 31k miles.

The "VW" emblem on the front is still chip-free.

Put my VMR V801 wheels on with Michelin PSS tires.
18x8.5 et45
235/40R18
Totally transformed the look of the car. I was worried about the Anthracite color with CSG but to be honest it suits my style and gives it a real clean look.
Let me know what you guys think?

Looks great. What did you use to drop your car.

Dropped it last summer myself with VMR springs.
Installed Neuspeed front and back sway bars, SuperPro endlinks on front and back and strut tower bar.
Car handles like a dream. Track it during summer months.

Hey all,

Picked up my 17 GTI S this last weekend.
I've been loving it so far.

I don't plan to mod much for a while, other than little things like LED lights and maybe head lights in the future. I haven't experienced a brand new car and would like to with this car.

Great shots Adam!

Looks so much better when there is no plate on the front.

Single pic from last week's track day. Lighting was total garbage and this is all I could salvage from the day. Need to take her out and do a proper shoot. She was great on track, though!

Sometimes overcast days can have great lighting. I say if you could have avoided the shadow on the nose of the car it would look awesome.

I'm debating on getting my VMRs powder coated either satin black or semi gloss. Any of you fellow CSG owners have black wheels?
