VEHICLE STORY

I lusted after the GTI since I was 14 when it first came to the US. 30 years later I finally bought one (after owning numerous other VWs). Having fun modifying and driving it. My buddy Andy has a lift in his garage and he helps me out a lot. I've been APR Stage 1 since 24K miles. Stage 2 at 49K. Gradually building up to KO4 but doing it incrementally so that I have all the right supporting mods for a "reliable" ride. What's left? Not much I think - APR Pendulum Mount and a front BBK.
