From humble beginings :laugh:

Here's my car when I got in the summer of 06.



Lowered it on H&R supersports (sweet HDR bro! lol)



Black badges, and plasti-dipped grille.



Wasn't low enough so I was saving for coils, unfortunately an "unexpected expense" came up.:banghead:



Got the car back, good as new.:thumbup:



Sold the Huffs, and picked up a set of 17'' Visions.

Lowered the coils more.

Picked up a set of Votex tinted tail lights when they were on sale. (best pic i've got, even though it's out of order)

Got a Japaneese TDI Rear valance, not the best pic, but also shows me all the way down on the coils/steelies.


Rainy_Day by Max Wobbles, on Flickr

Straight traded the steelies for huffs, and traded my coils for air!


Bags and BBS's by Max Wobbles, on Flickr

Then the next weekend went back up to NJ and traded my cobra wheels with Marcos for his RS's, and in the process became your stereotypical MKV :laugh::laugh:

There are lots of little mods between now and then including an intake, exhaust revo and apr tunes, and lots of various lighting mods, but that most of the major visual ones.
And now you're up to date! Thanks for looking!!:cool: And I'd love to hear feedback! :beer::beer:

That's SUCH a path!!! So cool, man thanks for sharing!!!


P.S. I always thought of your car as the "very low rabbit on Vision V's" and it's funny to see all of it's progression from the beginning to that stage to now air! Crazy cool. :)

I really like the cobra's wheels but you can never go wrong with rs's, especially with Marcos's offsets!
Thanks man! Cobra's were nice because they were original, haven't seen a set on another MKV yet (well except Marcos's:laugh:)
