The Gti has always been the car I return to when looking for a fun car to buy. I love the looks and build quality, and it ain’t bad to drive either.
I purchased my first Gti on New Year’s Day this year. A 2018 SE MT6 in Dark Iron Blue Metallic. Low miles (13,500) at purchase but not well taken care of. Needs some deep cleaning and a few scratches fixed. Once that is done I plan on adding some higher quaIity photos. I wanted to start a journal because this is for sure the coolest car I’ve owned. I’ve had several Honda CRXs growing up and did a little autox. Fun driver cars but nothing like this Gti.
My goal with this car is to improve on what is already nearly perfect IMO. I want to get out on track at places like VIR and really drive this car in the future.
The first modification I completed was to remove the “snow shield” from the stock air box. It doesn’t snow but once a decade here in SE NC and it looks quite restrictive. I plan on dropping in a Green Filter performance air filter once that arrives.
I also ordered the ECS clutch improvement kit. From the reviews I’ve read, I’m quite excited to get this installed when it arrives. I’ve been looking at the Diesel Geek shifter to go along with this as well.
