Don't call it a build thread

It seems like everyone is making 'build threads' these days, but I think those should be reserved for more extremely modded cars

Bought in August of 2007 with ~10 miles, it's an '07 GTI with DSG.





then i moved to Savannah, GA for school where it stayed stock for a while but eventually got some smoked turn signals, mirror signals, open fogs, intake, and autotech cup kit





After graduation (2008) I moved back up to new england where it was slow going for the first year and it only got a boost gauge. In 2009 a week after i got it out, this happened..







woke up to this...

so THAAAAT sucked...but it was all covered by their insurance.

once that shit show was over (and the relationship i had been in) it finally got stage one, turbo back exhaust, stage 2, and a new head unit. i also took off the front plate







2009 was also my first year going to H2Oi which really got me motivated. At H2O that year it got yellow fogs and lamin-x.

In 2010 got some tails from darcness, new pads and SS lines, rear storage tray, and new diverter valve, fmic,and wheels got plasti-dipped. i also swapped out the springs in the cup kit to H&R supersports







The plasti-dip kept peeling, so in 2011 i had the wheels color matched, engine/transmission mounts, catch can, yellow ftp, and plasti-dipped front grille.







2012 saw it saw a RSB, resprayed tinted tails, timing belt and dsg change, fuel pump, 2+ tune, hood notch fill, badgeless grille, glossed lower grilles, color matched bay (batt box, fuse box, coolant cap, washer cap, intake piping), and partial rear seat delete





and later in 2012 it got wheels, rear strut bar, and coilovers.







So far in 2013 it's gotten new slotted rotors, shaved front bumper, intercooler piping got painted.









Neuspeed P-Flo
Ultimo Coilovers
Eurojet 3" Exhaust
Revo Stg 2+
APR HPFP
H&R 24mm Rear Sway Bar
AWE Tuning DV
Garrett FMIC
BFI Stage 2 Engine Mount
BFI Stage 2 Transmission Mount Insert
BFI Torque Arm Insert
42DD Catch Can/PCV
Goodridge SS Brake Lines
BSH Throttle Body Pipe
Hawk Ceramic Pads
Euro Switch
Yellow 9006 Halogen Bulbs
Yellow H7 FTP Bulbs
Smoked Mirror Signals
Euro Lip
Privat Kup 18x8.5 et 36
Tinted Tail Lights
Kenwood DNX 5120
LED Interior Bulbs/Plate Bulbs
Badgeless Grille
Open Fog Grilles
Gloss all lower grilles
filled hood notch
Omori Boost Gauge w/ Vent Pod
Color matched engine bay
Rolled Fenders
Euro Sport Rear Srut Bar


It's a daily for me in the summer months and has 118,xxx miles as it sits right now. and it makes me smile every day!

Great job with the car and that rear seat delete is dope. Im curious. What did you use to make it sit so well? Did you use the bottom of the rear seat as support? However you did it, it looks great!
