      2007 MK5 Gli Fahrenheit with 51k miles.

      Day i got her.



      Put red lights in front and rear domes, sun visors, and foot wells (couldnt get a very good pic)



      Black side markers



      Tinted the tail lights



      Installed an autotech cold air intake



      Ripped out the falling down hood blanket



      Removed the oil cap spacer and grommets that held the engine cover on



      Put gloss black b-pillar covers on because the paint was coming off





      Installed BSH pcv fix and BSH turbo heat shield



      Newest pic



      Next will be a wolfy grill kit along with yellow ftp bulbs and fogs. Then black rear emblem, downpipe, res delete pipe, and magnaflow muffler. New pics as soon as the next part arrives.

      Good start. Don't get carried away with the black. Too many Fahrenheit owners do. Remember, lees is more. Simplicity.

      Lots of people spray tint...doesn't mean it looks good. In my opinion, it looks very cheap and high schoolish. Just my two cents. Again, less is more.

      Calm down. I never said anything negative about your car. I am simply giving you my opinion and some advise.

      if you don't like constructive critisism, then the internet is not for you.
