Little Emblem Action

Recently I posed a picture of my car on IG for Tooshie-Tuesday and someone wrote a comment regarding how ugly / hideous the rear emblem is when set on top of the standard black plastic housing. It really got me thinking!

It was something I hadn't usually considered before so I decided to do some research and see what I'd find regarding rear emblems. Seems like in the European luxury car market / sports car market, many cars have rear emblems placed directly onto the body rather than on top of some housing. Usually chrome or some sort of black, the emblem really pops with the contrast of the body color of the vehicle.

Our VW's are a bit different since we use the rear emblem as a door-latch mechanism! Though acceptable in function, not in form. Inspired by the images below, I decided to purchase a Klii Motorwerkes rear-badge vinyl insert to achieve the same or similar look.

Final results turned out spectacular! I think the rear end did clean up a bit more and streamline the overall OEM+ look. Slowly shaving away the look and feel of an ecobox.

Rear Emblem:

Don't Lose Focus

Really really REALLY happy as to how things have been turning out lately. I've been trying to remember to focus on the end goal and not the immediate relief of doing something on whim or out of impulse. Lately I've been focusing on really delivering a higher, more premium feel to the car.

Some of the latest upgrades to look forward to:
  • OSRAM Xenarc LEDriving Headlights
  • Klii Works Rear Emblem
  • Carbon Fiber Wrap
  • Golf R Leather Interior Swap
  • Golf R Front Lip

Slowly but surely, the car is coming along. Went to a local park and shot these to share the new look. Hope ya'll enjoy.

Tell me about it, love the look. Thanks dude! Wish I could find a higher-quality wrap though. Though MOST times glossy, every once in a while when the sun hits the wrap just right, it show's an orange peel texture rather than epoxy gloss. Rare but still enough from time to time to remind you it's flaw'd.

If anyone knows of a good, high quality, GLOSSY AS FUCK wrap, let me know.

i dealt with the same issue with my carbon trip wrap - it DOES look super realistic though where it shines different depending on the light.

My suggestion (Which i am yet to try but am sure will work) would be a simple clear bra wrap OVER the wrap.

heres where i got mine - DEFINITELY not as glossy as in the pic (fucking marketing!!) but it is really good, at a glance it definitely looks real right down to the size of the twill and color

Thumbs up

I don't generally do cosmetic mods to my car, but seeing your car leaves me speechless. Your ride has got to be one of the best, if not "de best" and tastefully modded cars around.

Well done!

Itty Bitty Baby Feature


This past Friday I went to a local meet at a near-by mall to meet up with the local auto enthusiast crowd. Sadly, there was less than a handful of VW enthusiast there all with Jettas. A few Audi's here and there but ultimately, it was a domestic run meet.

Scanning around for something that would peak my curiosity, my attention turned to this beautiful sunset on the other end of the parking deck where the meet was taking place. I whipped out my new DJI Osmo Mobile gimbal and attempted to capture some quick shots of the car during the sunset.

This is my first attempt at video meaning first time shooting video AND editing for final. I'm not familiar with automotive photography so I don't really know which angles work best or what shots are typically included in the list so I just tried to base on some videos I remembered liking on Instagram.

Here is the end result suggest you view on YouTube or if you're lazy, you can click below and watch the small version.

Inspired. Gonna be buying an R Line bumper in the next few weeks cause I feel the stock rabbit bumper is so underwhelming. Might be a strange question but does the R line bumper body line drop farther than the sideskirts and rear bumper?
