Fast4Life's "project beast"

Whats up guys. I am the proud owner of a 2012 GTI. Ever since I was little I've wanted a GTI and I finally got one. I'm 20 years old and Pre-Med at FAU so money is a little tight, but I've made the most out of my car as possible. Every day I smile when i get in, and i wouldn't have it any other way. On July 31st 2011 I picked up my beast and he was still wrapped in plastic fresh of the boat. The build date is 06/11 so it had to be brand new. I contemplated many mods being on a college budget, but decided on a modest approach to tasteful mods. I wanted to keep the stock look, but burry as much power as possible, and I think I have accomplished that. I have upgraded every possible part to be a fully blown stage 2. Intake,IC,DP,CBE. The only think I wish my car had was xenons so I picked up a pair of Ed's lights and couldn't be happier. I will eventually go K04 because I'm an idiot lol but in the meantime summer tires and hawk HPS are on the to do list. I want to give a shout out to Plac, FocalPoint, JackGTI, OmegaArts, Ed, and Chris Green at USP for helping my car become what it has over the year. I'll keep you guys updated and I appreciate you stopping by to check it out!

-Brandon

When you get them set as your DRL's let me know. I am stuck and no amount of searching has helped much. Thanks.

Tuesday night come out to the Ft. Lauderdale Ale House(Oakland and Federal) at around 930pm for the Euro Car Meet and you can get them done. If you have a Vag-Com bring it, and if not, FocalPoint will help you out. That way we can figure it out.
