To be honest, I’m tired of blowing up the “What did you do to your MkV today?” thread and figured I would start my own (seems all the hipsters are doing it these days). It'll basically serve as a place to dump pictures and show the progress I’ve made. Anyway, I purchased the car on December 13th 2011, a few days after my 22nd birthday. Once I sold my BMW 3-series I knew I was going to buy an MK5 and waited patiently for the right one come along.
Day I picked her up:
(Bought it with tint, not sure of the %...I’m going to have it removed once I get pulled over for it)
Took advantage of the weather & painted the calipers two days later.
…so much wheel gap
Smoked side markers…grill stayed like this for only 24 hours.
Filled the holes on the shield & painted it black
snapped my smiley in half trying to remove it
De-badged & LED plate bulbs
Votex lip, subtle spoiler & back to OEM side markers
Bought these beautiful things…
…Mike aka Minor_Threat installed them & I took some pictures the next day
Twisted the fronts down 5 threads & the rears settled a little. My friend Anthony snapped some shots a few days later (which came out great)
Bought some plasti dip
So it's been a month and this is how she'll sit for winter. GLI side skirts should
be on by next week and I've been searching for a set of wheels to refinish for
spring but haven't had any luck
Welp sorry for wasting your time
