Hey all!

Some of you may know me already, I'm Adam from the Chicago area.

In the midst of trying to save for a house (Which seems more impossible all the time these days!) I have decided to 'downgrade' my prized ride.

Had to say goodbye to my MK7 SE 6MT today...

Was APR 1 with intake exhaust, fluidampr, headlights taillights yadda yadda. Great car! Miss it already.

Went right from selling it to a guy from MN to being picked up by our buddy Jay745 who was kind enough to give me a ride to inspect a K04 car...

It was in a minor accident that damaged the rear door and panel which was repaired semi decently. It has 40k miles and runs/drives amazingly! I got it for a STEAL and it has the following mods:

APR K04 kit
SPM Catted DP
Full unitronic intake
Rev9 intercooler
Stoptech pads, R1 concept rotors
Upgraded pancake pipe
4 tune flashes
DSG tune
R8 Coils
034 Engine mounts
HPA Dogbone

Think thats it! Pulls right in line with the tuned MK7 but the tighter gears feel STRONG!

So really not much of a downgrade, and gotta say this thing rides a LOT nicer than the MK7 haha. Needs a bit of TLC

Mods I currently want to do: (mostly cosmetics at this point)
R20 headlights
LED tails
Probly wheels
Meth kit
Leather seats
RNS510 radio
Front lip

I am a modder so this car will continue to be modded even though the engines already there haha. Suspension stuff maybe we will see.

Anyway thats it for now! Thanks for reading.
