      So Ive decided to finally start my build thread. Im no longer unemployed, so the $$ is flowing again!

      For those of you who dont know, I own a lake silver 2000 TT quattro bone stock at the moment.

      Quick "timelaps of change to the booty" booty shots

      Stock

      Smoked Tailights

      Debadge



      Here are some of my other threads...

      Photoshoot of "The Dirty Beast and a couple nosy deer"

      I joined the dark side...

      This last weekend I also decided to fix a couple things. I was in need of some new wipers, so I got me a pair of bosch marathons...



      I also noticed my passenger door was off a little and poked out when it was fully shut...

      I should thank idwurks and his thread for bringing it to my attention/curiosity to even look at mine!

      Before...


      After...


      Some things to look forward to...

      Mods...
      3" custom exhaust - Should be getting this done next week if not this weekend with THIS in the mail Friday night!

      So this weekend I decided to get something done. I just recieved my muffler on Friday, and my 3'' catback is going in on tuesday!


      I didnt want to pay $80+ for a dual rear valance that I knew I wasnt going to keep for very long at all, so I said screw it and had a little fun with this!

      I actually didnt have very high expectations for the final product...




      Oh................................................ .but it didnt end there....


      Yup. I did it.




      Now to wait for Tuesday and $$ to get me the osir spoiler lip and valance lol

      Update....

      So there was a slight change in plans with my 3" cat back...Long story short, My buddy said In order to fit my muffler, there would have to be some pretty big bends in the piping that in turn would negate the whole point of having an exhaust for high flow purposes (at least higher flow then stock...), and since I also told him a while back that I was planning on dropping it, he said 3" would cut real close to scraping once dropped. So I ended up with a 2.5" exhaust with a glasspack... I wasnt really a fan of glasspacks at all mainly just from what Ive heard and 99% of the tuning communitys opinions... lol

      Well, when he turned the engine on to let me have a listen....its sounded pretty dang sick. For the $300 I paid, it was a steal and I couldnt be more happier with the turnout!

      Ill try posting some videos as soon as I can!

      Here are some pics!

      That sounds WAY better than I expected - clearly my idea of glasspack is outdated. And the look works too! Love the tips around the piping itself. NICE.

      Yeah I know... Hes more of my brothers friend then mine, but still... I guess I just didnt wanna sound like the guy saying "well ive seen it done, why cant you do it?" specially since he was also cutting me quite a deal imo...

      Ill def be going 3" tho as soon as the funds show up to go BT (GT28xx/GT30xx).
      Right now the plan is to go chipped k04.

      Why thanks!
      My reaction was the same! lol I was super nervous to hear it when I got to the shop... Ive always heard bad feedback on glassbacks....like bad. lol I was almost embarrassed to post the setup, but whatev, turned out nice, and Im satisfied with the rumble.

      Soo It took much longer to get the project done. Unfortunately it took me 8 hours to get the first part done(tore the front driver side apart and finished rears...) as I had to tackle this all by my lonesome... luckily my buddy finally made it over to help out and we got it done by around 9-10ish pm... lol

      anyway, heres the pics and the mayhem!




      After messing around with the front and not being able to take the strut out, I took a break and moved to the back.


      after about 45 mins...


      and finally done...




      Then on my way to the womans this morning, I did a quick photoshoot lol. Excuse the dirty car...










      Heres some before and after...
      Before: 7-8-2010


      After: 5-14-2011


      Thats it for now!

      Yes don't take half steps for sure. I had a friend that did that and he said he wish he never spent the money on the baby turbo upgrades and just went BT.

      Well guys, Ive pulled the trigger on some new shoes last week friday. I decided on these.

      I got them in 18x8 front and 18x9 rear with ET 35 all the way around.

      Ill be needing some tires to go along with them. I haven't decided on any yet.

      any suggestions???

      anyways, this will be the last thing ill be getting as cosmetics go. Then my main focus will shift to the K04 and all supporting mods.
