Build Story – I originally started out in a Honda with not a lot of power. So when going to pick my next car I wanted to make sure it was something with a bit more power. I had a relatively smaller price range to work with so after ruling out a lot of different cars I found that GTI’s were a pretty great price for what you get. And lucky for me I was able to find one for a great deal with only 70k on it. I bought the car with the K04 swap and after some maintenance and little upgrades I decided that I wanted to go Wild with this build. So I bought a full airlift performance kit with 3p management and installed the air ride myself. Shortly after install I took it in for some air ride maintenance and ended up balling out and getting a custom trunk set up. Finally to piece the look together I got wide and flashy ESR SR08 wheels in a gloss white. Now I’m looking to get full aero and a wrap hopefully by summertime! Stay tuned!
