'13 Candy White Wolfsburg GTI

Just purchased my '13 Candy White GTI Wolfsburg Edition about a month ago. Only things I've done so far are 20% tint on the windows, and a little bit of plasti-dip on the mirror caps and the rear GTI emblem. I will be doing Carbonio CAI, APR Downpipe, and Stage 2 Tune in a few weeks. I will upload some more pics at that time.

26 Miles
A few pics from the day I bought the car (26 miles on the odometer).







1000 Miles

20% Tint, Clear Front Markers, White & Black Rear Emblem, Forge BOV, New South Vent Mount Boost Gauge, ECS Torque Mount Insert, Black Mirror Caps.











3000 Miles

APR 3" Downpipe, Carbonio Stage 1 & 2 Intake, APR Stage 2 Tune.



3500 Miles

First Oil Change, Fumoto Valve, Color Matched Rear Markers, and Rear Wiper Delete.

Nice whip! I'm looking to do similar mods to my 13' 4 door as well. Too bad I didn't find one in carbon steel grey or the candy white.

Installed clear side markers, color matched vinyl VW insert for rear emblem, Forge Blow Off Valve, and New South Boost Gauge this weekend!

ECS Torque Mount Insert came too, but I didn't have time to install it yet.

Headed to Jacksonville next weekend for APR Downpipe, Carbonio Intake, and APR Stage 2 Tune!!

Nice set up so far.

Your boost gauge looks like it's sitting a little below zero when the car is off (unless it's just the camera angle?) It's easily adjustable if that's the case, there's a metal rod on the back, mine was off a little bit when I first installed it.

Thanks for the heads up. Got it adjusted today!

how do you like the blow off valve?

I'm guessing it's safe to install it then? the reason i ask is because I've been looking through this forum and people go back and forth whether it's recommended or not

I've only had it installed for a few days, but no issues whatsoever. Plus it makes fun noises!

Some engines need the re-circulation of that air (via a Diverter Valve) for other functions, but the TFSI and TSI engines do not.

Sorry, didn't take any videos of the install. It's pretty straightforward though, there are 3 bolts holding the stock DV in. The 2 lower bolts are a breeze, the top bolt it a little tough to get to, but it's not that bad. You will reuse the stock bolts for the Forge Blow Off Valve. PM me if you want more detailed info.

Good Luck!

Wow looking good! Are you on stock springs? Any plans for suspension?

I'm waiting for delivery of some smoked out side markers, wolfsburg centercaps, deautokey full LED interior kit (blue footwells) + licence plate led. Considering some kind of rear trunk lip guard if they make them since already got some chips there from transporting bike.

Hopefully I'll be getting performance mods within a month. The forge blowoff is all about the woosh sound right? No gains or losses of any type? Looking to get apr stage 1, modshack or P-Flo intake, new springs/suspension, sway bar, some smaller things like you upgraded.
