Phew! Looks gorgeous! How much did the whole setup cost you?

Pre-dusk cruise shot. The light output and clarity in comparison to the halogens is insane. I cant believe how much more I can see now. This is definitely the best functional mod I've done thus far.

Installed the GFB DV+ today and went for a test drive.

Immediately noticed that the boost doesnt fall between shifts like it did on the stock RevC (manual trans.) I can't tell weather or not there is any throttle response improvement. If so, minimal. Most importantly other than holding boost, the flute sound from my intake is finally gone!

SoWalGTI's stock+ build

Not only does the flute sound go away, but as its gets worn in you're going to hear a very nice sound when getting off the throttle at low rpm.

Drove it today! Cloudy skies and empty roads. The most wonderful time of the year.

Love your tasteful mods. Everything you've done fits so well with the car, and I like that you are keeping it OEM+. Will continue to follow. Thanks for the thread!

Agree with others here! Very subtle and classy! Perfect stance there, any lower looks bad imo

Installed LED interior lights. Drastic improvement. I would highly recommend.
