Nice builds! Go stuff so far. Cheers!

Thank you for the warm welcome man!

For now here is a close-up on my 19x9.5 +40 Advan GT (Hyper Racing Black), going to get the Voomeran Over-Fender Flare kit to fit these on my GTI.

quick update: I received my Flow Designs front Splitter and Craven-speed front license plate relocater this weekend! I'll be sharing the splitter once it's mounted on. The license plate holder is a beautiful construction.

Just finished installing the AWE Tuning Track Edition Exhaust with Black tips. I'm really happy with the finish quality and performance. If anyone is interested, I'll post some sound clips. It's not droning or loud to be honest. Very happy indeed!

Super excited today I ordered a Black Forest Industries Stage 3 Clutch Kit



In addition, I ordered the Wavetrac Limited Slip Differential ~



can't wait to install these parts so I can start doing some real power modifications.

Can Anyone here recommend a good front and rear brake kit that will aggressively fit 18" size wheels?

I'm thinking about going w the same exhaust (w AWEs DP)! Let us know how you like it as it breaks in. Great build so far.

It's been a full weekend of driving the GTI and I'm very happy with the performance from the AWE track edition exhaust. It sounds better and better as I drive and break it in. I love the idea of adding a catted downpipe as well. I'm thinking of going Cobb for mine. Keep me posted on your build bro! Thanks for the kind message ;)

Those mods all compliment the car really nicely and you are going to love the wavetrac diff, the bfi clutch pack not so much. I hope you have a better experience than I did/do.
The downpipe will make the AWE exhaust scream amazingly.

Hey man! thanks for the encouragement bro~! What was your experience with the BFI Clutch? Which clutch would you recommend? Also what Downpipe are you running? Thanks in advance~

Nice!! Question. Do you plan on upgrading brakes as well? As you are planning on installing a beefier clutch and wavetrac for what one can only assume more power is in your future.

Yes absolutely need to upgrade my braking to something that can fit aggressively in an 18" wheel. Looking for recommendations?! My budget for brakes front and rear are 2k

For 2k, you could look at piecing together a TTRS brake setup, 340mm rotors of your choice, and then swap up to the performance pack rear setup. If you want to stay oem, of course. Alternatively, save some bones, get the porsche boxster caliper adapters, run on 312 rotors as is with a great selection of pads out there.

2k opens up a lot of possibilities. As Sprinks said, TTRS is a good choice w/ the PP 340mm rotor. Check out Vagbremtechnic as they have a few kits. The stoptech ST-40 is also something to consider.
