ce4's CSG

Starting this build log to help document my journey into my GTI. After getting bit by the VW bug in April 2016 (girlfriend bought her first VW, 2016 Tiguan), I decided it was time for me to make the change to. Traded in my 2005 Chevrolet Colorado in July 2017 (bought new in 2005, 193k miles later) and walked away with a great deal on a low mileage 2013 GTI, Carbon Steel Grey, DSG. Only 27k miles on it!

Plans: This is my DD so I want to keep things as "civil" as possible, maybe going towards an OEM+ look/feel. Want to keep this liveable, driveable and add performance where I can without breaking the bank!

Anyone...on to the current list of updates/upgrades:

Exterior:
Lamin x Yellow Fog Lamp Covers
Smoked Side Markers - Rough
Plasti Dipped Front “VW” and “GTI” badges matte black
Plasti Dipped Wheels - Brass Monkey
Rear VW Badge black, with Klii CSG underlay
Tinted windows 35% and brow
License plate LEDs - DeAutoKey.com
LED Fog Light, 5000k, 360 - DeAutoKey.com
RoxBloxz Mud Flaps, short, Black/Black

Interior:
DeAutoKey.com White LED kit with Red LED Footwells
Ebay Paddle Shifter extension
ECS Hatch Pop Kit

Performance:
Cobb Airfilter
GFB DV+
034 Dogbone Insert Mount
Red Coil Packs - ECS
NGK BKR7EIX Iridium Spark Plugs
Cobb AP3
Stratified Auto 91 and 93 Tunes
Continental DWS06 Tires
