History
One of the first Mk7 GTIs delivered in the US (delivered June 2, 2014 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL)
My 2015 GTI is one of the first 50 Mk7s delivered in the US (delivered June 2, 2014 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL).

Since getting it in June 2014, I have put over 100,000 miles on it, and have enjoyed every moment. My overall goal with it has been to create a subtle, understated, and clean car that is still unique in it's own right. I have taken a very "OEM+" route with it, and always try to keep modifications as "factory" as possible. To most people, it might seem like just another Golf; but to those who know, the small details and touches are readily apparent.



OEM+ mods include the following:

IHI IS38 Turbocharger
OEM GTI Clubsport S muffler (first in US)​
OEM MIB2 Discover Pro 8" infotainment retrofit​
OEM Active Info Display (Virtual Cockpit) retrofit​
OEM European GTI headlights (E-Codes)​
OEM European GTI LED tail lights​
OEM 19" Pretoria Wheels​
OEM power folding mirrors with Euro Golf R aluminum mirror caps​
OEM Clubsport S lower control arms​



Non-OEM mods are as follows:

MTM USA ECU Tune​
MTM USA DSG TCU Tune​
RacingLine sport springs and dampers​
H&R 24mm rear sway bar​
Eventuri Carbon Fiber Air Intake System​



Many other small touches and details throughout complete the car, while retaining a factory level of fit and finish.

Hey - this looks amazing man! I've just picked up a mk7 golf gti, the same colour as yours here. It's currently on 18" wheels and I see you've got 19". Did you have them on 18"s before, and if you did how did you find the change in the ride? I've seen comments saying it isn't as good, but how did you find it? Thanks in advance, Josh.
