Matt's 2.5 Build

Thought I might as well make a build thread. I welcome any and all input!

The car is a 2012 Candy White 2.5L Golf. Manual. Sunroof. Cold weather package (I think). I bought it with around 40k miles. Love the car and I can't wait to start modding it.

Current Mods
Plasti-dipped grill and badges
Color changing footwell lights
Headlight eyelids
APR Carbonio intake
Seat inserts
Foglights

Planned Mods
License Plate LED's
Sub and Amp
Interior LED's
License Plate Frames
Aluminum Pedals
Euro LED Taillights
VAG COM
Clear Sidemarkers w/ Amber bulb
Puddle Lights
Courtesy Door Lights
Brake Upgrade

Footwell Lights

Color changing footwell lights from LED Glow. I think the red complements the interior really well.

Are yours on when the headlights are on? Or do they just go on when the doors are open?

They're controlled by a box under the dash or a remote that's on my keychain. So I have to manually turn them on and off. Its a bit of a hassle but I don't mind too much.
