Also the guy in your picture has some wicked razor burn.
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.
