      Hey everyone,

      I have been saying I was going to buy one for awhile and today I finally did it. I got a Candy White/Titan Black 6spd Passat TDI SE. I'm coming from a 4 door MKV GTI that looked like this:

      Here's the new car:

      I'm going to try and refrain from doing any major modifications for at least a month..... lol
      I do plan on adding these before SOWO:

      Decided to do some "work" today. Nothing too crazy but cleaning it up a bit



      Leaving the TDI for now. I'll probably end up relocating it under the taillight.

      At first I didn't like the white on white, but the more I look at it the more I start to like lol.

      +1 for not being stock

      Once it's low I'm sure it will look pretty bitchin.

      Thanks. I personally think Helios are one of VWs best looking factory wheels.

      That was one of the selling points for me. Had to be a sedan and had to have MkV suspension.

      Well I got the wheels on this weekend. The 20's definitely fit the car more proportionally. Here's a couple quick photos I took with my buddy.
