rand0m's platinum gray GLI build thread.

A little introduction..
My names Matt, from NJ and I've had this GLI for a little under a year now.
Bought it from the second owner with 135k on it, second owner only had it for a year and didn't really do much. The original owner took meticulous care of it, and had it dealer serviced for everything. This car feels incredibly solid.

Current mods
Stage 2 Gonzo tune
3" 42DD catless TBE
Forge splitter valve
Spectre air filter
4bar FPR
25mm H&R rear sway bar
Cobalt boost gauge w/ 42DD pillar pod
ECS Polyurethane dogbone mount bushings
Helix glass headlight lenses

When I first bought it:


Last season I had it on coilovers and a nice set of Miro 111s

And most recently this past weekend I bagged it

So with the help of Nolan over the last weekend, my GLI is bagged

Airlift Slam fronts, firestone rear bags with fk shocks, and accuair switchspeed management. Running dual 380c compressors with everything tucked away nicely in the spare tire well. Tank mounted upside down to the parcel shelf. I wanted to completely maintain my floor space in the trunk and I'm very happy with how it came out. Did IDF drop plates in the rear and a frame notch as well.

Wheels are Rotiform NUEs staggered 8.5/9.5 with a 205/40 on the 8.5 and a 225/40 on the 9.5. Offset is 35/38 I'm pretty sure. With a 15mm spacer in the front.

I am absolutely in love with the way this car sits and the way it came out.
