My girlfriend's GTI build thread :)

Long time reader, never really posted.


My girlfriend had to purchase her first car and we were deciding between a Golf, a GTI, a mini cooper S, or Golf R


We ended up with the GTI and not the Golf R due to a wait time of 4 months.
(She purchased the car almost a year ago now)


She was in a hurry and ended up finding a candy white GTI which was fully loaded.

She op't for a Manual because of me forcing her to buy it haha, I thought that everyone needed to know how to drive a manual before this art of driving dies.

She did not know how to drive manual but I ended up teaching her myself

Within weeks of the car.... I started to play around in modding her car (so that I can have fun with it.


Mods so far:


APR 93 Octane ECU (Dual Tune)

NEUSPEED Cat-Back exhaust.

6000k headlights and foglights

clear sidemarkers

NEUSPEED Short Shifter

NEUSPEED Intake

Golf R tail-lights


So far thats what I got and I am really really happy with the GTI and the mods


I am open for other mods as well!

I am thinking downpipe, wheels and coilovers





When the GTI was purchased!



NEUSPEED intake



NEUSPEED cat-back exhaust




6000k headlights, 6000k foglights, and sidemarkers




Before the Golf R tail lights



Difference between Golf R lights and OEM




All installed!



By the way, the name is Jeff!


Nice to meet you guys

I wonder, why do you want to have fun with the GTI when you have those other 3 vehicles? I think maybe because the C63 and ducati make you feel like you're hanging on for dear life and sometimes you need some calm sportiness? Is the GTI just a DD mainly and you want to make it more fun?

btw I'm not trying to criticize or anything bad, sorry if it seems that way. Its just an honest question haha
