4fit's Build Thread- '12 UG GTI

Hi all. I'm new to the forum and new to Volkswagen ownership. Really, new to ownership of anything non-American. Previous cars worth mentioning are a '89 Mustang notchback (intake, cam, 125 dry shot, drag radials, drag suspension, etc), '01 Mustang Bullitt (#453, H&R Sport springs, 01 Cobra front bumper, staggered 18" anthracite Bullitts, etc), and '11 Jeep Wrangler Sport Unlimited (2" Teraflex lift, 33" Falken ATS, 16x8.5 Level 8 Strike 5s, etc).

Anyhow, I needed to sell the Jeep to get into a vehicle with a cheaper payment and better gas mileage (was averaging 15.8mpg in the Jeep). Always liked the MkV and Mk6 GTIs, so I set out to find one. Found a nice '09 APR Stage 1 2dr, but it sold 2 hours before I planned to go look at it.

Ended up finding this '12 UG DSG and worked out a deal for it. It already had OEM R wheels, OEM R tails, tint, smoked markers, and a diverter valve spacer. Not sure what my additional plans for it are, but they most likely include springs and stage 1 tune at some point.

Enough yappin'. Here are a few quickly snapped pics.






Here's a couple pics of the previously mentioned rides.

lol. Well, you are about right. The guy driving was 15 at the time, but it ain't me. That's my oldest son. I'm 35, but feel more like 85 most of the time.

Nice ride. Ditch the dv spacer asap before it blows oil all over the place.

Nice man. I've had 5 mustangs. My favorite was my 87 tangerine 5.0 notch back I painted. Congrats on the gti. I love mine and I'm sure you love yours! I have csg, and your color makes me jealous!

Right around 20. Has the touchscreen/sunroof package (convenience package I think its called ?), DSG, interlagos, and looks absolutely brand new. I think I got a pretty solid deal.
