Austin's GLI build

Hey all! I purchased my 2013 Jetta GLI on June 13, 2015 with ~25,000 miles. Just want to keep a thread of my progress!

The day I got it


Stock



Had APR Stage 1 loaded the second day I had the car. Flashed by Don at Covert Customs in Huntsville, AL

CAI, TBE, Stage 2 APR tune


H&R Ultra Low Coilovers and Rotiforms
(8.5"f 9.5"r et35)


I went to Nola Speed and Style and decided to go a couple days early for some fun parts. I had Greff Motors in Metairie, LA install an APR K04 kit! Also got DSG Stage 2 flash and APR Mobile. Car runs great!




Mod list:

Appearance:
Ziza LED DRL's
Ziza LED interior lights (full kit from ECS)
Deautokey City Lights
Deautokey HID's
Lamin-x yellow fog tint
APR sideburns
Rotiform IND-t 18x8.5/9.5 et35 5x112

Performance:
APR Stage 2+ (K04) fully loaded with stock/91oct/93oct/100oct
APR Stage 2 DSG tune
APR Stage 1 & 2 CAI
APR Mobile
CTS Turbo downpipe w/ high flow cat
Billy Boat CBE with resonator delete
R8 red top coils
NGK BKR7EIX plugs
GFB DV+
New south Boost gauge
H&R Ultra Low coilovers



Future plans:
IE valve springs (I have valve float )
SPM Intercooler
Neuspeed or Spulen turbo inlet and outlet pipes
Bags (wasn't planning for this but I think I have to)
Jetta hybrid upper grill with slatted lower grill
Stickier tires
LSD
Water/meth?
Nicer head unit with Apple CarPlay
Upgraded headlights with projectors

Thanks for reading!

Previous cars... Sold the mk2. I still have the mk4 but it needs a lot of work including a new transmission.

awesome car. I can't help but notice this seems like a performance build though, why would you be considering bags given your other mods and other future plans?

Thanks for the compliment!

I've kinda gone back and forth with it in my head... I came from a vr6 mk4 car. There wasn't a whole lot to be done to the vr6 other than turbo... So I built for aesthetics.

Thing with the Jetta... I definitely want it to be relatively fast but I want it to look good too. Call me a scenester but I love the way bagged cars look. I won't be taking it to any track (unless it's a straight line). Just daily driving with the occasional show/cruise in and some fun pulls here and there.

I dunno. Lol
