My First VW: 2011 GTI

Hello everyone!

I just purchased my 2011 VW GTI and I am loving it. Thinking of doing some mods to it and need some advice on where to buy the parts I need. The model of my GTI is an Autobahn. Seems like it has almost everything except the Nav and Xeon headlights.

I was wondering where I can get good deals for the following Items:

1. Bi Xeon Headlights
2. Yellow fog lights
3. Coilover Suspensions
4. spoilers
5. Short Shifters

Any suggestions are welcome. Also would like to know how to setup an APR Stage 2 - 3 but not sure where to look as far as for the parts. I am currently living in NY.

Much appreciated thanks!

Shop around the classified section for the best deals! There are also plenty of vendors on here offering awesome deals. I think Frank@KMD has a deal on ST coils right now.

Congratulations on your purchase! As for your list, take a look around the classifieds on the forum, you can often find a good deals on stuff there. Also, check out your local craigslist as there are often deals there too. Definitely a wealth of knowledge around here to help you out!

Autobahn have hid lights and nav standard. Your car isn't an autobahn then.

Congrats though!

Thanks!

I bought this car from the dealer and they mentioned this is a Autobahn GTI. I was not sure why it did not include the HID and Nav. But for the deal I got this car I could not have let it pass by. All good though, I don't need the Nav. Working on upgrading the headlights with Ed's Xenon headlights.

if you bought a 2011 without hid's that is autobahn, you got screwed OR the previous owner parted the car for skrilla before selling it.
