with 600 miles on it i did an apr stage 1...reason for my choice is purely convenience, NGP is a mile away from work
and i also added this

around the same time I installed my BSH catchcan...if you wonder if it does anything i will leave this


next addition was my golf grill which i should have done sooner if i knew it would have done so much for the look of the car

MK6GTI by DRedman45, on Flickr

i settled down for a while....now i have been back in spending mode for a month or so

Front mount by DRedman45, on Flickr

and tomorrow i am ordering a DXD stage 3 daily "silent" flywheel clutch since my clutch has been slipping for 5k miles

Nice car! When do you plan on putting those Works on? Which IC is that? And are those OEM door guard strips? I think I might actually like those.

since i wasted my stock tires...the detroits got 205/40/18 Nitto neogens which will be transferred over....i have been trying to buy a set of 17" BBS vz's for winter, but the guy has been screwing me around...its been 3 weeks since i said i would buy them

the works need new bolts...they are 2 piece forged and welded so they dont actually do anything, but a few have to be drilled out and re tapped...then get paint, which i have been debating since i have had them...probably next spring they will go on...maybe sooner to get some pics

APR ic

the door trims are an oem option for the 4drs...i didn't necessarily want them, but they have grown on me

Cars looking great. My clutch has been slipping for a little while now but I have been able to deal with it. It's pretty on an off.

Those works look sick and I want em haha. What K04 kit you going with? Sticking with APR?
