2012 CSG 6MT GTI Jansonchan226

My first MK6 is actually a 2010 GOLF. I am actually a huge fan of the scirocco and since the MK6's headlight resembled the scirocco, I went for it. I had great fun in that car even though it was an automatic. I did not consider the GTI at first because I had a motorcycle and decided to keep the car comfortable to drive. However, I sold my motorcycle and returned to the car scene. For the price I pay compare to the quality I get, the GTI was a clear choice (and i love the golf).The GOLF was my first German built car and I love how it drives. Since the motorcycle is gone and something gotta fill that void in me, I decided to see how far I can get with this car. Before I got on a motorcycle, I was into Japanese cars. Although many of you hate Hondas/Toyotas, I for one think they are brilliant manufactures. I had a 1993 Prelude SRV and a 2001 Celica GTS. Both were modified and they were fun to drive! Back to the GTI... I want to eventually end up at K04, the feedback on K04 is too tempting! But let’s not get carried away and start things slow.

Mod List:
APR Carbonio Stage 1 intake (Installed)
APR Stage II Flash (Installed)
AWE TBE (Installed) (kept the DP, took the CB off)
OZ Superturismo LM (Installed) (summer)
VMR 705 (Winter wheels)
H&R Sport Springs (Uninstalled)+(Sold)
DG Springs (Installed)
St Coilovers (Uninstalled)
5% Tint (Installed)
Color matched side markers (Installed)
GTI Seat inserts (Installed)
OEM Golf R LED Tail lights (Installed)
RNS-510 (Unisntalled)
S150 OEM rep headunit (Installed)
Neuspeed TOP (Installed)
Neuspeed Air Charged Pipe (Installed)
Color matched side marker (Installed)
Neuspeed Rear Sway Bar (Installed)
Autotech insert (Tried installing... )
ECS Tuning Dogbone mount insert (Installed) + trimmed
Buychina(OEM... or so they say) underseat drawer (Installed)
Michelin Pilot Super Sport (Installed)
RSR Clutch kit from HS tuning (Installed)

Future Mod List:
K04
Rearview Camera Kit (bought)
Neuspeed Intercooler
Superpro ALK
BBK


The bikes




My old MK6




GTI at the dealership


Let the fun begin….



Blue Dome Lights + Red Foot Well Lights



LED License Plate Lights



SUV Mode



SUV Mode off. Lowered on H&R Sport Springs





APR Caronio stage 1 intake:



Yellow Fog Tint + Relocate license plate:



It looks much better without the license plate, but too bad BC require front license plate.



After some heavy rain in Vancouver, water in my headlights..



Time for some serious POWER
AWE TBE + APR Stage II flash




Smoked Side Marker from Parts4Euro (don't ever buy from them)



OEM Golf R LED Tail lights.
Took me less than 20 minutes to install...
Here is the comparison:

Thanks!!
I had the GT and I engine swapped with a GTS motor. other than that an lowering springs, it was all cosmetic. I really liked how agile that car is at low rpm.



Sorry for the crappy pics..
