well i think its a great looking car. cant go wrong with the racks! id say lower it a lot more but i shouldnt be talking. i be stock
I decided to put together a build thread of the life of my '08 Rabbit. Progress will most likely be slow but plans do include turboing the car.
Currently the car has:
APR 93 oct tune
Eurojet exhaust headers w/ highflow cat
27 mm APR rear sway bar
H&R Sport Cup Kit
Full BSH Mounts
42DD Shifter bushings
18x8 Raderwerks M-TEN 85
Pirelli 225/40/18 PZero Nero
Euro Jetta Front Bumper
Votex Front Lip
Black Textured Mirror Caps and Door Handles
first day I got her brand new off the boat.
first upgrade was a magna flow cutback
followed by a Carbonio intake.
then proceeded to move forward with the black and red look by blacking out the tails and the emblems
then started with the trim, probably what I have changed the most. It is now plaid fabric
first set of rims, 18x8 rs4 reps
Finally got a H&R cup kit to cope with the massive wheel gap and improve performance. This worked well with the 27 mm rear sway.
Cheap Bosnian fogs that were more for looks but set the car off nice
Euro Jetta Bumper and black mirror caps.
aweful paint job that I was charged twice for and still didn't get it right.
On the way to SoWo '11
Finally got a set of racks
Finally a nice upgrade to the wheels for summer and textured door handles.
Also was able to upgrade to a Votex front lip
A nice visit from my buddy with his stg 2 SC R32

the car looks good.
since it looks like you enjoy your autocross, why dont you get a nice set of coils so that you may be able to adjust them and get the best possible suspension config for the better experience/lap times
So I was able to acquire a Eurojet header w// high flow cat and will be installing it before SoWo, just waiting for all the hardware to arrive.
Hopefully I'll be able to get access to some lift time because I do not want to do this on my back in the driveway
trade front bumpers, OEM euro GLI/GTI for yours
