i bought my R in june of 2007. it had 23000 miles on it. i had wanted a DBP R32 since i laid eyes on one in 2003. the demise of my 98 VR GTi was the catalyst to my situation.



it started stock, then i added H&R RSS coils and H&R F&R sways.


next was a BFI lower tie bar, and little else. it stayed as such for quite some time. you see, i was afraid that i would 'ruin' or 'damage' such a highly esteemed and low production caR if i tampeRed too much.

2008 saw the installation of a VF Stage II supercharger kit with C2 fuelling.


i also came into a set of polished, forged RoJa Formula 5 wheels.


i managed to get all of these things sorted at home before my wedding in August of 2008.


early 2009 found Ground Control camber/caster plates and VF mounts under the income-tax-return-tree.


fast forward to summer 2009. i got tired of being respectable and afRaid. Started a little club for guys who just wanted to remember that dubs are for fun. LOA

bought new, genuine, H&R coils for my coilovers. got my LOW on. (ruined my fendeRs and installed a skidplate)


shortly after that, i came into some used sawblades and got played out. (sat about right, but oh, so bloody original it hurts)


drove to H2Oi (750 miles each way) with two passengers and a ton of crap and nearly died on the way back. (thank you 50# raccoon and unkempt highway seams)

at H2Oi:


after H2Oi:


so now, here's 2010.

Does that have any negative effects?

raising the cG, I can't think of any other major issues off the top of my head other than possibly hitting the hood?
I don't know why you don't just destroy a Mk4 GTI, at least they aren't as fast or handle as well as an R. Dropping it that low can't help your handling at all.

I imagine that 1.8T oilpans are cheaper than VR6 as well...
