I think I'm a bit crazy for my car. I bought it on a whim after looking at a bunch of cars online. I was only planning on test driving the car but I ended up buying it! This is not practical, however I've modded the car after about 6 months of ownership and after seeing all the youtube videos of other mods gave me ideas on what I wanted to do with mine. I started with springs and spacers since I didn't like the way the stock car's stance. After that, I installed the APR intake, and full turboback upgrade. The most recent mod is the Optix 3rd Gear Performance dynamic turn signals which I'm happy to have saved 50 bucks from buying an off brand from Amazon. We'll see how long this knockoff version lasts. I figure they're LEDs just like the other ones. There are several options to tune this car. Everyone has an opinion. I have tried both Unitronic and APR stage 2 tune and I'm currently sticking with the Unitronic overrun. Perhaps COBB pro tunes in the future when I get the upgraded Golf R Turbo. Currently, the biggest challenge on this build is getting the power down because it's FWD. So far I only have a dog bone insert and that helps, but I still get wheel hop. In the future I plan on upgrading that as well as transmission/ engine mounts. I just bought a South Bend clutch, but. I'm still on the stock cluch and so far it's holding up. . Once I upgrade the clutch then I plan on adding a few more boltons and a Golf R Turbo. Cheers!
