Bann's MK6 R Journey

Hello all, located in Denver, CO. Decided to make a thread for the R.

This is my 2nd VW I've owned, came from a MK4 GLI which I had a good list of mods. Unfortunately threw a rod and sold the car (best car I've ever owned). Picked up a 2012 MK6 R in April 2017, wasn't very long until I started modding it. Planning on keeping this car for a very long time.

My goal with the R is to build a fun, quick daily driver that I can occasionally take to the track. Want to clean some things on in such as repaint the front bumper and hood, need a new passenger side skirt (my stupid mistake). Took me a bit to get over the GLI, but this car is something else and love it more everyday.

First pick when I picked it up

Seems like you might like IE lol. I've got their intake and i'm really happy with it. Also gonna be using them for my intercooler and engine internals. I woulda gotten their intake manifold too but the tuner i'm gonna be using doesn't support it.

I love IE products. Got a tour around their shop during a quick trip in Utah.
Awesome group of people.
