SawwuceBawse gets a mk6!

I'm now back into the vw community after taking a 2 year break. Ive owned several vw's in the past, but the only one worth noting was my mk5 gti. Thats the car that really got me into modding, and after a 2 year BMW hiatus, I had to go back to my roots.

Last week I became the proud owner of a 2012 Rising Blue Golf R. The car was previously owned by a local enthusiast, and has been reverted to stock for the most part. It has a custom brown diamond stitch re-wrap on the stock seats as well as the hood notch filled. It's going to be a great daily considering i live in Chicago and commute 25 miles each way to work. I'll update this thread with updates as they have them. I plan on keeping it simple and reliable. Bags/wheels/tune/exhaust/intake.

Here's a couple pics of the R.

And one of my GTI from right before I parted it out and sold it.

Yeah, but he doesn't have that anymore. Lol. Hopefully I can move along quick with this.

The original owner of the R? I don't know him personally. But he's local to me. The gray GTI was mine before.

Updates!!! Yayyy. Well I didn't wait long to do an upgrade. (1 week on the dot) swapped in the euro cupholder to replace the boring stock one. Wasn't too bad of a job either. Here are some before and after pics.
