Bought the car completely stock on Valentines days 2009. Left it alone for a couple months but eventually got a Carbonio intake and a R1 diverter valve to start it all off. Got it APR tuned at H2Oi and added a 3” turbo back exhaust from APR shortly after.
During the ’09-’10 winter season I bought as set of Mercedes Brabus Monoblock VI’s and kept them in storage until spring. Around the same time I was talking to Andrew from ORT about the Bagyard Bomber group buy he was doing and also got a hold of Accuair's Stage 2 Air Management. By March I got everything I needed and put it all together with the help of a few great people. Made it out for a lot of shows and gtg’s just to show the car off and was the start of me getting to know a lot of great and helpful people on this forum site.
Nothing major went down this year, just a few cosmetics; all red tails, lower grill fogs, rear wiper delete to start the year off. Again went to a bunch of shows and gtg’s and placed 2nd in the MkIV Mild class at Summer Sizzle. Towards the end of the year I finally got around to getting a frame notch. Got bored with the all reds and got a set of golf tails and amber side markers just to change it up. Wanted a cleaner looking back end and more a deeper exhaust tone so I chopped up my ARP exhaust, added a Magnaflow muffler and a turn down tip, a euro rear bumper and a shaved 20th valance. Again, a lot of helpful hands went into these projects, so thank you to those people!
Being unemployed sucks. Had to sell the Brabus wheels for extra cash. Nothing exciting happened.
Coming soon... [edit: Just kidding.]
