      Long story short I have been paying this car off every month with two jobs since I was 16 (now 18). I finally sold enough old stuff and saved enough money to buy a nice set of wheels. I couldn’t decide what set I wanted and went through at least 20 sets of wheels in my mind. I ended up finding a set of polished BBS rs’s with white inserts or “windows” and fell in love. Even though these wheels are “played” I feel they suit the car very well.

      I just bought a new fender, but for the future I plan on getting bigger lips, a jetta grille and a frame notch.

      (Sorry for the crappy quality photos)

      Now let the "cool story bro" photos begin

      MORE PHOTO'S THROUGHOUT THE THREAD!

      You know what, do what makes you happy, whatever you think looks good. In the end, is not any of these guys spending $$$ and driving your car.

      I think it looks great! So simple, yet effective.

      Make a little list of mods in the first post.

      sying since I was 16 and not noting how old you are now is completely useless...could have been one year...could have been 5 years...
      with that said, your car pulls everything together nicely. I really dig the red shelf.
