Damn near every mod on my car has been purchased on a budget, from H&R Super Sport springs to sprayed r32 style tails. After just over 2 years, she's right where I wanted when I started out. I am about 18 months from paying 'er off. MKVIs are starting to look not so ugly anymore...getting the itch for a new car/bored with(finished) modding on the current GTI. I just hope that the next person will get as much enjoyment out of my car as I had.
