      Since I am now a stay-at-home dad, and don't have much to do, I figured that I would create a time line of my 2008 GLI.

      I bought the car from Wyoming Valley Motors in Larksville, Pa at the end of July 2009. It had a little over 3,400 miles on it.

      After driving it for about a month, I bought an ATP intake off of the Vortex classifieds.

      I then got a europlate, installed Sylvania Silverstars in my fogs, and stuck the GLI letters on my front bumper. Also got the resonator deleted.

      I then purchased Ziza H7 and 9006 pure yellow lights from ECS Tuning and loved (and still do) the difference in night driving. I also ordered the upgraded "D" diverter valve and installed.

      I managed to pick up a pair of Passat steelies with rubber off of the classifieds and after painting them, threw them on, just to find out that the tires were 5% too tall.

      Took those wheels off, put on the Denvers, sold the tires and bought some General Altimax Arctics to go on the steelies.

      Made my own heat shield for my intake and replaced the ATP filter with a K&N (put the ATP on during the winter).

      I got a set of OEM carrier bars (no real good pictures of them) from the classifieds and then put the car into winter mode. During the winter, I purchased a set of color matched side markers from ESE Tuning.

      All that had been done to the interior thus far was replacing all interior bulbs with blue LEDs.

      For my birthday, my buddy got me a pair of color matched eyelids from Performance Cafe. I know how the 'Tex loves eyelids, so here they are.

      Back to the classifieds, I found a euro dash tray for sale, and picked that up and installed.

      While on their website, I picked up an EE Militia decal and badge. Put them on yesterday after the spring cleaning.

      All of this brings me up to date. Yesterday, I took advantage of the nice weather and waxed the hell out of the car. Today I went out and tried to find some good photo opportunities. Went over to Bethlehem to the old steel plant and got some shots.

      Thanks! Haha, yeah I know. I wanted to do something different. I have a new badge coming and it is going to go in the grille. Something still unique and that doesn't make it look like an old Ford!

      Here's a couple more from today. Should be it from me for a while, until I get a fairing, bike carrier, and matching grille.

      I suppose, if you tried, you could get more things on your car with a self adhesive baking...

      I was always taught not to say anything if I didn't have something nice to say.

      Soooo...looks good from the front (sans badge) and we'll just leave it at that.

      And nice camera skills.

      Honestly, I really don't like the thunderbunny kit...

      that's just my opinion though. However, the pictures are good.

      Got a painted grille from fixmy59bug and threw it on last night. Matches pretty good.

      Pardon the cell phone pictures.


      *Edit* Added the GLI to it.

      =/ miss the black, liked the contrast.

      "G L I" spaced out like that for some reason just gives the car a really sporty yet premium look, shame on whoever convinced you to take it off.

      The only thing that is really fugly are the eyelids. Those shrouds in the housings are amazing and don't deserve to be covered up.

      I like the Thunder Bunny front more than the R32 front because you can actually get fog grills.

      I like the Thunder Bunny front more than the R32 front because you can actually get fog grills.

      I liked the black too, but now that I've seen the difference with the color matched, I like it so much more. I'll keep the black grille and maybe someday I'll switch it back. I just always see Thunder Bunny fronts with black grilles, so I wanted to be different (aside from a GLI with a Thunder Bunny bumper).

      I agree about the headlights, but for some reason, I like the eyelids. I know they are not everyone's cup of tea, but there's no way I'm getting a Boser hood.

      No one convinced me to take the GLI off the bumper but me. For a couple reasons, but mainly because I wanted something different and more subtle. In the grille is rarely done on the Rabbit grille and again, I wanted to do something different.

      Thanks! You know, that's something I've noticed a lot with all Thunder Bunny bumpers. I think it has to do with when the bumper was painted and the texture. When my car is washed and waxed, it's hard to see the difference. I tend to noticed it when the car is dirty. Also, when I bought color matched side markers, I had to return the Platinum Grey ones and exchange for United Grey. The same with the new grille...it's United Grey and it matches. But the eyelids are Platinum Grey; go figure!

      That dash tray mod is so good looking.

      I actually just ordered one yesterday even though my car has the auto climate. I'll deal with it.

      Thanks...I love it. I keep my car so clean and empty, so I was worried about not having anything to put in it! It got rid of my dash rattle and I keep a couple chargers and blue tooth in it so it was worth it. I'm happy I got it used though...for a good price.

      I received a new to me Thule fairing today off of eBay. Thanks to this thread, I was "inspired" to install the fairing as mentioned in the thread. So, I threw it on, and love the fact that I have no more hum. Here's a few shots from this evening after a nice drive.



      And I also made eggs today.

      Me and my buddy decided that we are going to install these:

      ...on Thursday. Couldn't find anyone to do it for a decent price. Neuspeed Sport Springs.

      *Edit* Also put on my Peloton fork mount bike carrier the other day. Pardon the cell phone picture...seems to be all I ever have on me, since the wife always steals my camera!
