~2010 Golf 2.5 Sportline 3-Door~
// Creating an .:R-Line Build \\​

As I make this thread, going over 11,000 posts,
I think this thread is Long Over-due; it's about time I posted this.
I have been enjoying the car since the day I got it;
hope to move on to a mk7 .:R or GTI once they come out,
preferably Lapis blue or White 4-Door DSG.

I also want to thank everyone who helped me in making these mods happen.
While modifying this car, I made life-long friends,
met great people on this forum and
hope to see you guys in the next chapter @ golfmk7.

How much does the stupid engine cover weigh?

That's right, that's all I got out of this. ;)

About as much as the stickers he put on the back window... lol! must say I love the car though. That quad exhaust is awesome, great job.
Thanks for all the love fellas& girls haha.

The no engine cover mod is an inside joke for 2.5s. It weights 38 lbs. built in intake. :D it's a mod you must do if you get CAI, I might get a bettle cover that weights 3 lbs.

Also there's only 2 stickers at the back, golfmk6 and waterwerks. Gotta represent!
