/*\Build Thread/*\...May Contain Excessive Pics.

It all started with a glance, I was casually looking on the VW lot, and there it was shoved between two GTI'S. It's blue caught my eye, I immediately circled the car thinking, " This car has to be mine". Just as was thinking that a dealer said, " Do you need help finding anything?" The dealer gave me the keys to test it out, I was hooked.

I have gotten complacent with my R, which is a shame. But not anymore. This thread is going to be where I dump all the latest photo updates relating to my R32. I don't suspect many of you will care but that's fine with me. Thanks and enjoy.

Then armor all, stripped my dsg of it's black on the shift plate. So I took it off and wet sanded until it was white.

Then this came




Don't be sad for my R friends it's on a major rebound.

Won't instal these until I order new coil packs tho...


Figured I would swap out all the red wiring to blue, will order blue coil pack covers once I place a order for coil packs :)


What I did today

Before


After


fffuuuuuu ECS Tuning. I ordered this dash cubby a couple days ago. It came today, and just for kicks I went to OEMplus to see what their price was. I paid 120 after tax. OEMplus was charging 74 $ and some odd change. I naturally called them and asked them to price match and they said no. I said I would like to return then, to which they said ok well that will be a 15% restocking fee! I have spent alot of money with them in the past 2 weeks and they couldn't price match something that hadn't even been delivered to my house? wtf anyways enough with the rant....


Evil Costumer Service Tuning package arrived


They pack it soooo good, no wonder why they overcharge.


Can't wait to instal and store things in it. OMG it's going to be so amazing ahhhhh.......





Will be done Sunday

No, But after watching him, it doesn't seem as hard as I once thought it was.

Thanks for all the feedback. My front struts will be here Monday. I'll do the install starting on the 1st.

Here are the front struts I'm waiting for.

Supreme series Front & Back They were also special ordered to receive a "tuddy" cut (I think thats what it's called)

So awesome man. I envy you. I have to ask, why the rear wiper delete? I live in FL where it rains half the year so when I finally got a car with a rear wiper I felt unstoppable.
