      Ill bite. I am a full time student, work full time and own my own house so budget is a real concern for me.
      Winter set up-




      And summer, still on stock wheels.


      Right now, most mods are internal. Hotchkis adjustable rear sway bar, Eibach Pro Kits, APR Stage 1 and a few other odds and ends.
      This summer I want to get my short shift kit, boost guage, and front sway bar. If i get the right deal a 3" down pipe and I have the rest of the stuff to build my own 3" exhaust.
      Next spring I plan on getting a set of RML snowflakes for show and street and a set of R compounds for my stock wheels on the track unless I find something wider cheap.

      Quick edit, I have an Oettinger front bumper I got on craigslist cheap. If i get a winter beater this year I will park the car and have it painted and ready for spring. I gotta find different sides and rear for it first though.

      Hi everyone! I'm Fede from Argentina and this is my first post and this is my mom's Jetta, which she doesn't use much, so I do. The Jetta does not have a lot of mods for many reasons, first of all my budget , second one that here there aren't many aftermarket parts available, and the ones that are, are sooo expensive as they are brought from USA or Europe. Third, the Jetta is quite an expensive car in this side of the earth (starting at 31k US dollars) which you don't want to brake or make any mistakes with.
      Anyway, here are some (crappy) pics:





      The car's got sports springs. I can´t go lower as the streets here suck.
      Quite dark tinted windows, that aren't illegal around here.
      6000K xenon in low beam and fogs, aren't illegal either.
      2din Pioneer DVD receiver, amp and sub. Those are the main mods


      Sorry for bad english!

      I saw your R on Santee Drive on Thursday! I guess that you're just visiting...

      'Twas nice to see two mk5 Golfs at one home... Wish that more people would appreciate European cars rather than buyin' Korean and Japanese econobox dorkmobiles.
