just wanted to start my own thread since ive been adding mods since the first day i got my car. haha. i have a CW 2.5L golf (DONT HATE ). i came from a civic that i totalled after hydroplaning on the highway and hit the wall 3 times.... anyways back onto the topic at hand!
ive always wanted to get a hatchback and I wanted a rabbit so I decieded to get a golf =) best decision I've ever made. I love this thing and I don't care if it's not a gti. It's still a blast to drive!


p.s. i will edit with pics once i get home!

then yesterday i put vinyl on my side markers and tinted my tails even darker... and decided that i wanted to use a 2 color scheme and not a 3 and started making my storm trooper...this is my inspiration for my car..
i photoshopped the picture above..



i need to get my wheels with the white time attack... im either going to get that re- painted or buy biker vinyl like they have on motor bikes.

definately dont get the rabbit emblem, it wouldnt look right on a mk6 since they went back to golf (calling it a rabbit never really seemed right to me anyway) and i wouldnt black out any badges bc i feel like it makes it look a little cheaper, but hey man its all up to you since its your car

I like this picture the best, maybe the tails a half shade darker, but i am not into the white on the wheels. your build has really worked out nicely.
