Summary of the car: Bought the car in June of 07 with 17,xxx miles on it. From day 1 it was being modded. first with a cup kit. then followed by side exit exhaust. i then began looking into wheels. i wanted something wide and different. got a good deal on C4 Vette wheels and have been running them ever since. Found out that the car was chipped when i installed a boost gauge and it peaked at 23-24psi:D. Wanted to change up the interior so i did a camo headliner and pillars. Recently installed Raceland coilovers and have the daily ride height at 23.25in. the gti is daily driven 60 miles round trip from home to work and back. as of now it has 53,xxx miles on it. i have only had minor problems with coilpacks blowing out. Future plans are 3in downpipe to 3in side exit, FMIC, aftermarket sways front/rear, retro-mod the headlights, timing belt/water pump this coming spring, and whatever little things i come up with.
