Well I've owned #512 for almost 2 month's, so I figured it was time to start my build thread.

I've driven VDub's all my life and have loved every one. I currently drive the CW R and my wife drives a MKV CW EOS (for another 3 month then it goes back). She wants a 4 door so I pushing for a CC.

History

I'm the 3rd owner of #512. I actually looked at is last year after the first owner turned it in after the lease was up. I decided I was going to waiting for the MKVI R. Who would have guessed I would be buying the same car about 9 months later. Not a bad idea both owners took care of the car and I saved about $4000.00. No mods had been done to the car at the time I bought it.


I have plans on modding the crap out of this car. I want to take this great car and turn it into the perfect car for me. I will do all the cosmetic mods then the performance mods after that. Except the exhaust since I already had it.

Yeah I have a Adobe Image Ready task that resizes my images and attached the watermark. West Michigan Aquatics is the name of my website where I have all my saltwater fish tanks displayed.

I'll remove it when I have time.

Yes they are.

I ordered them from bold-sports.com directly. I couldn't be happier with lights and bold-sports.com. I placed my order on monday and had them on Friday. I believe hey are located in China. Hello 4 day and I got my order from China. They also sent a few free door clips incase I broke any while doing the warning light install. I broke 3

At the same time I placed 2 other orders. 1 with a tunning company in Ohio (no contact till Thursday to say one item was on back order and my other item wouldn't ship till that item came in.

The other with a OEM place in Orange count CA. Was told it was going to ship on Wednesday and found out it shipped on Friday.

My Borla sat the exact same way. Epic laziness prevented me from fixing it.
CWr32vdub got me some great pictures on how to fix it with a hose clamp. I really don't notice it until I look at the picture. Or if its pointed out on here thanks nikhsub1.
