Leila - Candy White 2014 Driver's Edition

Hi All,
Jeff here. Recently purchased my 2014 Candy White GTI Drivers Edition in July 2017 (July 15th). This is my first VW and I am hoping it treats me well. I am coming from having an Infiniti G20. This was my former boo, Elena:




I had done all types of different suspension setups with the G, and engine mods and have come to this realization with for this car:
OEM + means keep everything simple, and easily revertible.

That being said, meet leila:




Overall the exterior is in decent shape, people have already backed into it though, which is upsetting. But oh well.
So far i have put new wheels on it. 18" VW motorsport wheels. I wanted to get some uber JDM wheels for it too... considering Te37 Reps or something like that.



Mod plans:
-Exterior:
--Front Lip
--Rear Wing Extension
--JDM Wheels

-Engine:
--APR Carbon Intake
--Intake Piping?
--Stage 1 Tune
--Cat Back Exhaust (Remus?)

-Suspension:
--HQ Coilovers (KW or Fortune Auto) or Just simple drop springs + dampers
--Bushings (once things feel less tight)
--Rear Sway Bar (Probably not)

Simple mod list, want to save funds so I can make sure I am a stickler with maintenance. Like I said, OEM + is the Goal. These cars are super nice and quite handy by default. I dont want to be that guy who "cant drive his car because blah blah blah doesnt work".

Thanks for looking
