      We've dug ourselves out from the snow in Chicago just in time for another AUTObiography. This week it's Blkmag1c's 2010 GTI. Check it out.

      Very well done, it's beautiful. I love the wheels too.

      for the clean GTI. CC wheels fit the GTI really well!
      for warranty fraud. If you break it, you should pay for it...just the honorable thing to do.

      Great looking car, Very tasteful

      "What is your favorite story about this car?
      Running at 110-120MPH on the PA Turnpike with a 350Z.."

      Please take it to an autocross or a trackday. Is your license or life really worth that few minutes of excitement?

      Edited my post after reading the "article". Sorry, but not diggin' it.

      I like the car, but it isn't worthy of an Autobiography.

      My .02

      Also he isn't the only cat running those wheels... Plenty out there. My brother for example has had a set since this guy, and his are color matched.

      Yeah yeah. I just remember more thought going into the answers. Not to mention it's basically stock. OEM wheels, some coils, intake and thats about it.

      Hate Hate Hate. Lol. I love the car, just not the article.

      The car looks nice, would probably like it more if I didn't read the article.

      Exactly. My first post was basically this:

      "Cool. I love his car. Glad that it made it."

      Then I read the article...

      Zero thought into the answers. Warranty fraud. 110-120 on a public road.

      WTF Vortex?

      "What was your previous project? None .. First one.." + "What is your favorite story about this car Running at 110-120MPH on the PA Turnpike with a 350Z.." + "What tuning style would you describe this car as? OEM+, Murder.." =

      Although not a youngin, this leads me to believe you're a straight dub newbie. but because of this "What drew you to this specific car? The culture of the car.." I believe you understand why this :flamesuit: is needed. Tex is filled with haters... why, because we can and there's nothing anyone can do about it...not even the moderators.

      and for some reason while reading it these three things stood out to me.
      * it's "..." not ".."
      * it's "murdered" not "murder" thats an act
      * it's "under warranty" not "on warranty.
      Is all, good start on the whip tho,

      This reminds me of that BS autobiography from last year with the kid and his silver MkIV GTI.

      Why wasn't there a discussion forum set up for the awesome Scirocco from a few weeks ago? I would have loved to have left a nice comment for that guy.

      Feel sorry for whoever gets this GTI once he dumps this one and moves on to the next victim, I mean "project."

      More to the point, I have to agree with others - am a little surprised at this making it, considering how threads on street/road racing get shut down here (as well they should) lest they incite, um...'kids' to do dumb things. And really? THAT's his favorite thing that's happened with the car?? Not only is it a bad idea, it's not that exciting, either

      And I'm surprised, that given the Vortex's close, and (valuable to us all, I think) relationship to VWoA, that the apparent warranty fraud comment doesn't raise an eyebrow.

      Not a bad-looking car, but...kinda beside the point, I think.

      The Admins response every time is that 'anyone can submit one' and that 'they don't get a ton of submissions' anymore.

      Well, if you're not getting quality submissions - DON'T HAVE ONE. Just because you're picking from a crop full of junk doesn't make the Autobiography series any better for promoting said junk. I'd rather wait months in between to see cars (and more importantly), owners that are deserving of the attention.

      In this case, the car actually looks good. However, the owner is in no way worthy of being featured as an owner that should be showcased on the front page of this site.

      I should submit my boring ass GTI and see what happens - it's stock ride height, so in a way it's unique for this site.

      Since you have met him and we haven't, maybe we should give the benefit if the doubt; just doesn't come across well at all through that "autobiography" form.

      I'm sure the owner isn't a bad person...but my god you'd think the guys submitting these things would have the foresight to ask themselves some simple questions about what they're actually writing...
