My simple CW GTi from north of the boarder

Hi All,

Been a long time lurker. Bought the car in mid May this year, and took delivery early June. This website has provided a wealth of info for me.

Car is 2011 GTI 3 dr DSG. Options from factory include the leather pkg, and 18" detroits which I personally love.

The day the car arrived at the dealership (picked it up following week)

The day I drove 'er home


First thing I did with the car other than give it a full detail was clear side markers, couldn't stand the orange

Door sills from ECS

yellow lamin-x + Nokya bulbs

Osir CF lip... Kind of want to change up to the OEM painted lip

Then one day a careless driver hit me in stop and go traffic, got the body shop to paint up my orange markers, so now I have colour matched markers


Other stuff I have done:
Euro lightswitch
R-dash LED plate lights
red footwell lights
euro cupholder
VCDS disable horn when locking
cluster staging
Disable DRLs
Ultimate Racing CBE (non-resonated)
OEM euro GTI front lip painted CW
Golf R LED tails w/ Fog (waiting for my parcel from TMTuning)

Planned for future:
subtle 35% tint
coilovers (thinking KW V1 or H&R SS)
RSB
torque arm mount insert
p-flo intake/BSH
... and more to be determined

Heres some more random shots (I love this car!)

Still waiting for my Golf R LED tails from TMTuning... they said estimated delivery time week of Sept 19th.

Ordered painted OEM front lip from Keffer to replace my CF Osir lip. The Osir lip will be for sale!

Probably will, but first I want to see I can sell it locally/to local to GTA members to save shipping hassles.

Golf R tail lights have been delayed, and TMTuning now says expected delivery for Oct 10th...

Did a fun, and small little project today. Wrapped my rear view in Jacky Plaid vinyl, with patience, hair dryer, and more patience.

No showroom right now but we do have local inventory available and bring in new parts every 2 weeks or so.

You mentioned you picked up an exhaust. Which did you go with?
