Post by intoflatlines » Sat Apr 07, 2012 12:30 pm

Not so much a "project", but here's my build thread for my 2011 GTI :)

2011 Volkswagen GTI, Tornado Red, 2dr, Autobahn trim, manual transmission:

APR 93/91/stock/valet tune
OEM Euroswitch
VCDS tweaks
Wheels - Bremmer Kraft BR05 18x8
Hardwired V1, concealed display, remote audio
OEM LED tails with rear fog (tinted)
Winter wheels/tires - 16x6.5 ET42 steel wheels + 205/55/16 Michelin X-Ice Xi2 with OEM VW Tiguan center caps
Magnaflow catback exhaust
APR Carbonio intake
DIY color matched side markers
GMG tow hook plate mount
BFI Stage 1 (70a) torque mount insert

To do:
Short shifter
Stealth garage opener or Homelink
Auto dimming mirror
OEM aspherical or ECS tinted aspherical side mirrors
Downpipe / APR Stg 2 (full Eurojet TBE ordered, should be installed and reflashed next week)
Get rid of pinstripes the dealer put on :thumbdown:

Right after I got the car:

New wheels:

V1 concealed/remote installed:

LED tails:

Winter setup (wheel gap/reverse rake made worse due to the angle of my driveway):

Magnaflow catback exhaust installed:

DIY color matched side markers:

GMG tow hook mount and ghetto DIY plate hole coverup:

And a random corner shot:
