Welcome! you'll find a million ways to spend money on this forum =)

Go stage 1 and don't look back. You can also save some cash by waiting for the summer sales many tuners have. APR throws in a full loaded tune for $600. Revo usually does 15-20% off, so stage 1 can be had for as low as $300. Can't speak much about clutch options since I have DSG, but don't forget to swap to R8 coils. Stock coils usually fail after going stage 1, fortunately this is a cheap and easy mod.

I also have projector headlight reps from Eds with Morimoto ballasts. Had them for over six months and they've been reliable and one of my favorite mods. They perform great once they're aimed correctly.

i saw the damage pic and how was that deemed totaled? frame damage?

Anyway congrats on getting recovered and enjoy the gti, and this car is definitely not as fast as Z stock (unless previous owner tuned it), it just feels faster and it has a noise maker called soundaktor, which brings more noise into cabin.

1. Suspension to kill dat wheel gap. DG springs are a popular OEM-ish option.
2. LED Tail lights. There are rep options but I'm a snob and say OEM or go home (most will disagree).
3. R8 coilpacks are a must even if not tuning. All but eliminates the chance of misfires which are common on the stock coilpacks. These will run you about $75 and can install by hand in 5mins.

And most importantly, use google search to find all answers. Type golfmk6 forum and then your topic. Example: "golfmk6 forum LED tailights" and you'll get a hundred threads at least.

Enjoy.

I think the car looks beautiful as-is. I dont really wanna do any other mods besides -

-Coilovers
-APR Stage 1
-Intake/exhaust

That's it. But now it seems I need to add "New clutch" and "audi R8 coils" to that list.

So, according to this video the R8 coils are more of a visual upgrade and there is no proof they are superior to stock gti coils. So why are these a "must" upgrade?

Now the truth comes out... That's exactly how it begins, you better start saving.

My friend/VW tech told me the same thing. The R8 packs are no better than the stock coil packs. I am stage 2 and have not upgraded my coil packs. Although I have had 2 fail in a weeks time frame. I changed them both with stock packs that I keep in my car and have had no issues since a month ago when all that occured.
