dcpppf Build Thread CSG '12 Autobahn

dcpppf

Ready to race!
I previously owned an ’05 cavalier. Had it since my junior year of high school all through college. After about 100k miles and having a real job for 7 months I finally got me a 2012 GTI. I went with a CSG Autobahn 6 speed 4 door. Was able to finance for zero percent as the ‘13s were rolling out in the next month.







Exterior:
20% Tint
Clear Bra
DEPO Black Cherries


Performance:
APR Carbonio Stage 1 (6,367 mi)
APR Stage 1 Tune (6,367 mi)
BFI Torque Arm Insert (7,255 mi)
APR Stage 2 Tune (8,955 mi)
APR 3" Downpipe (8,955 mi)
R8 Coil Packs (9,563 mi)


Convenience:
10” Pioneer Sub With Uberstealth Box, JL Amp, and LC2i
DG Short Shifter
Verdict Shifter Bushings
Monster Mats
Cargo Liner
Vag Com Coding
Soundaktor Delete
Poor Mans Auto Hatch Pop


Want:
Southbend Stage 3 drop in (<-- not really want but will probably need someday)
Intercooler
Turbo Outlet Pipe
Throttle Body Pipe

This is where I’m at so far. Still young and never had a car to mod so it’s a pretty weak list. Feel free to offer up some suggestions

Got the stage 2 reflash with APRs DP and love it thus far. I had a 2.5 hour trip back from the tuner so after about halfway I assumed it was good and broken in so I decided to see how I liked it. Car felt stronger, pulled harder, sounded great. Has a nice meaty tone to it. I have heard some complaints about driving around town with the stage 2 tune, and haven't had much of a feel for that yet. But so far I am very pleased with the upgrade!
