Even though I told my wife I loved everything about this car and nothing needed to change..... It always happens.. ... Customization.



Tint, roof rack and tinted the rear lower bumper markers

Looks like you slapped on some spacers too.

^ ah yes...forgot LOL. Flush kit was thrown on as well.....wheels were waaaaaaaay too far in!

I also took advantage of Unitronics deal and went ECU stage 1+ and stage 1 for DSG. Huge difference.

Ironically, looking at your name, I once tried to learn how to ride a bike on an 1100cbr....good thing my SGT stopped me and told me no way.

Nice! I’m also thinking about switching to studs. It’s always such a pain in the ass trying to mount a wheel with a bolt.

Picked this up for a song from someone trading their GTI in. Urotuning sent the SAI filter and I've already DEI taped the outside of the heat shield and underside of the intake tube. Looks like my install will have to wait until after this massive storm coming in.
