      VW 2008 R32 DBP
      05-23-2011 04:01 PM #1
      It all started with a glance, I was casually looking on the VW lot, and there it was shoved between two GTI'S. It's blue caught my eye, I immediately circled the car thinking, " This car has to be mine". Just as was thinking that a dealer said, " Do you need help finding anything?" The dealer let gave me the keys to test it out, I was hooked. I take a-lot of photos, in fact thats how I make a living. I get lazy with this site and just upload uninspired iPhone photos, but I'm looking to change that. I have gotten complacent with my R, which is a shame. But not anymore, I've matured and so have my taste. My R32 is finally shaping up the way I want it to. I'm soon to get bags,rims, and body work done. This thread is going to be where I dump all the latest photo updates relating to my R32. I don't suspect many of you will care but that's fine with me. Thanks and enjoy.

      It all started with a glance...she was perfect...





      Got my windows tinted, and then I did this to her.....




      thought I was cool so I got these tails


      realized I wasn't cool so I switched back to my tinted stock tails....


      Got my evoms intake


      Thought my car was awesome so I put it in a EURO car show....



      Here is a video of the event, we thought it would be funny to play rice music and open all our doors/hatchs at a euro event..it just comes off douchey tho...
      [u2b]URFmA2fJw80[/u2b]

      somehow got second place...and won a euro plate


      Got a new OSIR grill and sold my OEM (mistake..)



      Then got some eyelids


      Did these various mods...

      Painted the center climate control / got silver beauty bezel rings


      Seatbelt straps


      Seat handle inserts


      OSIR Vent gauge


      Euroswitch


      Did a local VW sponsored event.










      Then I got coils...cheap ones...but coils


      The instal



      Wasn't low enough so we lowered it moar...


      Finally got them installed, I know moar low..



      Ripped off the stickers and my car pretty much stayed the same for awhile, minus a few stickers


      Installed my rear wiper delete, and thats when I started getting back into my car.


      Then armor all, stripped my dsg of it's black on the shift plate. So I took it off and wet sanded until it was white.


      Took off the OSIR grill/eyelids and sold them.



      Then this came




      Don't be sad for my R friends it's on a major rebound.


      work in progress...

      Vinyl be gone!



      How it's sittin, for now...




      Why is my left headlight lower than my right? I tried tilting it up and tighting the torx screw down, but now luck...any ideas?

      Right


      Left


      New LED bulbs for my license plate came in....


      The instal


      Old bulbs were nearly burnt out


      Right on time...


      R32 Dead Pedal


      Just bought this, should be here monday or tuesday


      Installing was a PITA

      Before


      After


      R overload


      Took off my eyelids...still waiting on my new emblem/led parking light/nokya h7


      Then put them on my brother-in-laws Toyota Camry


      Led License plate @ Nite


      Got my Nokya's thanks shadow2132


      before


      After, I think I need to get a better angle to capture the yellow


      parking lights, your on deck.... sorry for the low quality


      I'm sure you all know what it looks like but here is what I'm seeing


      sorry for the low quality I took it while driving


      My next mini project


      Just ordered the following

      Won't instal these until I order new coil packs tho...


      Figured I would swap out all the red wiring to blue, will order blue coil pack covers once I place a order for coil packs


      What I did today

      Before


      After


      fffuuuuuu ECS Tuning. I ordered this dash cubby a couple days ago. It came today, and just for kicks I went to OEMplus to see what their price was. I paid 120 after tax. OEMplus was charging 74 $ and some odd change. I naturally called them and asked them to price match and they said no. I said I would like to return then, to which they said ok well that will be a 15% restocking fee! I have spent alot of money with them in the past 2 weeks and they couldn't price match something that hadn't even been delivered to my house? wtf anyways enough with the rant....


      Evil Costumer Service Tuning package arrived


      They pack it soooo good, no wonder why they overcharge.


      Can't wait to instal and store things in it. OMG it's going to be so amazing ahhhhh.......:23:

      Cool thread. lol.

      The warning light you're getting is a bulb out warning. Your city lights may not have been installed properly.

      Looks really good. Do you plan on keeping your spare tire with the air install? If you do it'll be a little harder when you run your wiring and plumbing. Good luck with the install.

      I'm generally not into eyelids, but those ones look pretty good (perhaps I'm douchey? ). Do you recall which brand they were?
