picked up my gti a little over a year ago on my 17th birthday. the car had around 75k miles and had just had the timing belt and water pump replaced. i know no one wants to read so ill post some pics!

this was the first day i had the car


the next thing i did was order a new grille


a couple months of owning the car i found a GHL turbo back exhaust for $300, i was planning on lowering it before buying exhaust but i couldn't pass up this deal!

next came raceland ultimos, and a scratch on my iphone camera lens so sorry for crappy pics.


some time after lowering the car i got a revo stage 2 tune, havent had any complaints so far. also i lost the grille and put the stock back on.

my first CEL!:laugh::laugh:


i picked up a set of sawblades and rattle canned them white, dont hate. ohh, also got some glass headlight lenses, and a hood bra!




oh yeah somewhere in there i also got some matching amber side markers, and a 20th lip that i got for a good price off a local forum!

first time getting towed!! lol


took the sawblades off to sell once my car got outta the shop to try to get some money for the repairs, and i fishbowled my car.

a couple months ago i went on a trip to florida, the night i came back i was going to check my schedule for work and i cracked my oil pan..




i ordered the ecs hybrid pan kit and put that on, luckly i got a lot of money for graduation so i didnt really get set back much.

got a gift in the mail:eek:


dont get your hopes up, theyre only nues. :laugh:

i just graduated from highschool and my parents bought me a good camera so i could stop taking pictures with my iphone! lol

i went to a car meet over the weekend and got some good pics of my car. this is the first time ive taken pics so go easy with the criticism!




it was a long ride, need to get fenders pulled a little in rear


heres an attempted roller of my friend that rolled to the meet with me



heres a couple more from the meet this weekend






i will be trying to update this as much as possible. i work a minimum wage job at a grocery store so funds are limited, but most of my money goes to my car!

looks like its working itself out. I usually find all the rotiforms to be "played" but your pulling them off :thumbup:
thanks, always good to hear that:thumbup: trying to make some decisions on next wheels.


havent updated in a while. car is in the body shop getting hail damage taken care off, and front bumper completely redone:D insurance gave me a good chunk of change to get the hail damage fixed.

got some more good stuff in the mail



thanks for the skittles bfi:screwy:



picked these up tonight for a good price off a local forum



heres a pic of the car the night before i took it to the shop. had to raise the front a little cause when i took it to the shop to get the estimate i couldnt even drive to the main entrance. lol



next week ill be putting on the bfi stage 1 motor mounts, a forged tip, and replacing front 15mm spacers with 17.5mm spacers! will take pics as soon as i get my car back on saturday morning!

got my motor mounts on, go rid of most of my axle bind. i will be going lower in the front once i get motor mount spacers. pulled my rear perches and lowered the front alittle more. funds are limited cause i wrecked my moms car trying to drift on a dirt road.. lol

next things on the list are mm spacers, hatch shave, retrofitted headlights, and get my ugly single tip exhaust tip replaced with a dual tip.
