First Post Intro

Wassup everybody! I just bought my first Golf GTI and I truly love it! I would of never thought the power in this car would be so ecstatic for the hot hatch scene! Here is my car. Any tips or advice for being a first time VW owner?

Candy White...nice. Along with what Paytrose said...stage 2 clutch, dogbone insert, intake, r8 coils and a lower. Also, check out the Sticky Want to Modify your GTI? Start Here

Good luck and be safe.

I would suggest a short shifter, fairly inexpensive, DIY mod. And the Stage 1 tune.

Be nice and wave to other GTIs on the road. We're insecure and need the attention.

Easiest most enjoyable upgrade for me was M1 shift knob (manual)

Too many times have I flailed my arms to other GTI's only to be ignored... I will keep flailing away until I receive a wave back.

Haa I do that too, its awesome when you get a return. The best was one guy had half his body out the window waving back... he knows

For mods, my favorite two easy ones:
if you're stick shift: diesel geek sigama six shifter

Super Pro Anti Lift Kit. Check this reviewer's impression I got just the bracket kit, not the whole arm setup. Helps traction when accelerating in turns and not letting potholes and jacked surfaces deflect your steering. Feels safer on the highway and in the rain.

Welcome!
