      Ever since i got my mk4 i had a vision for what the end result will be. This is what i started with...







      Then it moved on to this...(swapped good panels from the TDI shell on)





      Little Interior Stuff





      Porsche wheels that are too small and Famous Jetta Wagon Load Bars Modified to fit a Golf





      Ultimos and LongBeaches, shaved stuff



      Axles blowing up and tows breaking bumper rub shave work out



      Paint and Orange Steels for the Holidays











      New Wheels, BMW M3 CSL Reps 18 x 8.5" Front and 9.5" Rear



      And from here i'm moving on to a 20/20 Swap - 20v head with aeg block, i have a 1.8t awp motor sitting in the garage (bent valves) going with a t3/t4 50 trim. run an aww 1.8t ecu for management. full shaved and tucked bay (keeping ac though) also getting some new paint here soon too...color i'm doing



      small pic but here's the motor

      cool, you've done nothing new and you made another thread about doing nothing new.

      tl;dr: just make one god damned thread and post your bull**** in there

      this thread is my new thread. It will show my progress mostly of the 20/20 swap. I've done all kinds of new things, i'm one of a kind, whether what i do is what everyone likes. I enjoy owning a vw and making the best of what i've got. Where's your new W e r d n a . It'd be cool to see your ride pop up with some fresh ideas. Its all about everyone bumping ideas off of each other. In the end a nice clean car is still a nice clean car no matter what path you took to get there.

      Yes watch please, give me opinions and criticism, it makes me just want to do more. i've been researching the 20/20 swap and it seems very feasible and an interesting way to get more POWAAA than just a motor swap.

      So watch, i'll either ruin my car some more, or fukN tear it up in a good way (Hopefully)

      making a million threads about your ultimos and how you got rep wheels isn't bouncing ideas off people, it's attention whoring.

      here is the formula, It does work and make a nice car, but its nothing original or different

      MK4 + low + wheels = approval.

      I appreciate everyones cars though. Clean oem+ cars are really an inspiration for what came from the factory and an improvement on it but thinking outside of the box is a skill lost in this scene.

      I'm not saying all my ideas are original but think to yourself what do original ideas usually spark? The answer is new ideas. Its about progression and moving forward from the norm.

      I really hope you don't leave those stock valence's painted like that, they look awful. Also, go back over where you shaved the bumpers. In the last pic of the rear you can see clear as day where you worked on it (it's not smooth)

      Props to you for telling everyone to go **** themselves if they don't like it.

      Either way, I still think this thread sucks. Wanna make it better? Put wheels on, lower it more, get it painted, tuck the bay, finish the motor, post pics of cars and throw in some pics of nice boobies.

      When that all happens, I'll come back and check it out.

      OP, doesnt doing the 20/20 swap and boost = bad and or issues? People get 400 whp out of 8v's and their twerbo kits. I read about them and never looked super hard but never saw a 2.0 20v turbo. I'm no expert though.

      Looks like you're inept as well, wouldn't doing all that destroy his intentions of being "ORIGINAL"?

      Inept? No.

      It was just a suggestion. There isn't much left to do in order to be original now-a-days when it comes to the car modification world.

      Yes, my suggestion would make him appear unoriginal, but it would look way better than it does now. My opinion.
