i like the budget pics and all but I have alot of you guys beat bad with the budget stuff.
I'm with kid1.
2 cars note--ding....ding
and all the other bills......yeah you get the point.
working at one of the major food distributors in the country and I rebuild turbos on the side so I can buy some small things.
so here is my budget build....07 gti..bought it new with 13miles on. now it has 65k....a k&n drop-in(given to me), forge DV(xmas), forge spacer(xmas), non res tbp(xmas), open fog light vents($70),golf ball shifter knob($20-on sale at ecs), flat black emblems and grill(free). stock wheels, stock 4X4 status. I have dreams of a bonus from work one year that will give me some money for coilovers, merc wheels, stg1 apr, afe intake, 42dd DP and res delete........lmao....still dreamin'
anyways! here is the daily.
2012 GLI CW DSG base w/ Appearance Package.
Eurojet MK6 GLI 1st Prototype exhaust, REVO STG2 tune. Revo TSI Cold Air intake.
megan racing springs, 160 bucks, smoothed and painted factory side skirts, rear valance, and front spoiler(hooked up huge cause i work in a body shop) and rollin on bremmer krafts BR01's with the dish painted to match. gotta love the MK5's, no body kit, just wheels, springs and a little paint work and they snap necks all day long! sorry bout fuzzy photo, i phone picture
my hr ultralows cost $500 shipped and the alphards were $628 shipped, WITH tires. so for coils, wheels and tires for UNDER $1200... yeah i would say thats a fairly small budget.
especially considering these are things i have done only within the last 2 months and i have owned the car 2.5 yrs.
the reality is that alphards while being a nice wheel... are not really that expensive. hell i can think of a large number of REPS that cost more then my alphards did.
-OEM Front Shield w/o front plate holes
-OEM Open Air Light Grilles ($100)
-Debaged Front and badge holder removed (Free)
-Autotech Sport Tuning Intake ($100)
-Dension Gateway ipod Adapter ($50)
-color matched side markers by local body shop ($60)
-L.E.D. Tail Lights ($318)
Definitely on a budget. As far as "Baller".... i dunno about that haha! all i know is it makes me

This is what I want to eventually do to it after school. The wheels will be stripped and powdercoated black for next season.
Some really nice rides in this thread!!
All great inspiration to save up your pennies and keep an eye on the classifieds and local craigslist/kijiji!!
Update for my ride: Still waiting on my adapters from 1552, have my Sawblades fully stripped and cleaned, going to mount the tires and plasti-dip them for this season, as the funds for powder coating just are not available right now. Also picking up coils in the next few weeks, so I have them on when the Sawblades go on. Looking at something cheap such as Racelands for this season, and piecing together an air-ride setup over the winter!! Budget FTW!
^save up some more and get some fk streetlines. I did racelands with sawblades and needless to say ran them for 3 months and wanted more low. just my opinion.
Working on a wood basket for my votex roof rack, attempting to stain with minwax ebony........however might be too in depth for my taste testing on a piece of spare oak. using oak for the the final product.
