first mod was a set of ksport coilovers really like them for the price with the dampening adjustability. have them set about 10 spots from the softest and everyone compliments me on the ride quality

Nice man! I'm in the same boat, self supporting poor college kid haha. I've had my car for just under a year, but i've added quite a bit since then. I'll make a build thread myself, but only when I'm completely satisfied with my GTI. Hmmmm that might be never though because i'm always wanting to mod my car lol. Anyways nice whip my dude.
