  • my stage 2 mk iv gti (first car)

    well seeing as i am almost 18 and about to get my p's i started looking for cars not long ago. Originally i wanted an r32 gts-t but vicroads kept saying no. So then i wanted an N/A r34, then i wised up and searched the prohibited vehicles database on vicroads and found i could legally drive (with an exemption) a mk iv gti. So i found one with over $10,000 worth of work done to it (i have all the invoices) and picked it up for $11,500, i have worked my ass off since to get this money so it is very rewarding. I test drove it twice and fell in love with it. It was beautiful to drive and was very quick compared to what i have driven in the past.
    So after a week or so of planning/organizing i picked up my first car yesterday, a mk iv gti. It is very fair to say i am overwhelmed with happiness, i absolutely love this car.

    i took some pictures just befor (excuse any dirt etc, i got half way through clay baring>polishing>waxing then had to drive it somewhere)

    the things i want to do to it:

    1: fit coilovers
    2: fit a nice sound system
    3: fit a new head unit
    4: (not sure yet) fit deep dish bbs lm's
    5: put the carbon fiber battery cover back on
    6: polish the rest of it


    things that have been done to it:

    1. Carbonio Carbon Fibre Engine Cover
    2. Carbonio Induction Kit
    3. Forge Motorsport Front Mount Intercooler
    4. Forge Motorsport Diverter Valve
    5. APR Carbon Fibre Front Strut Brace
    6. APR ECU Upgrade (stage 2)
    7. APR 2.5” Full Exhaust System – Turbo back
    8. Newsouth Indigo Boost Gauge and Pod
    9. Eibach Sport Springs – Pro Kit
    10. Kamei Headlight Eyebrows
    11. Genuine VW Remote Central Locking
    12. Genuine VW R Line Gear Knob/Gaiter
    13. Genuine VW R Line Pedal Set
    14. Genuine VW Upper Rear Spoiler
    15. Lester Autotuning Rear Boot Lid Panel
    16. Alpine CD Head Unit with full iPod integration
    17. Greddy Full Auto Turbo Timer
    18. 18” Wheels
    19. Viper 2-Way Alarm System
    20. Tinted Windows

    +more i need to go through the receipts.

          Nice first car, impressive amount of mods done to it, still looks pretty discrete.

                i couldn't believe how cheap i got it. I paid what you normally would for a 2001 mk iv but this one has over 10k of mods haha.

                      No slime or pubes = no fun
                      But red calipers and mcm sticker = +50kw
