      Hi everyone. Been hangin around the mk5 forum for a few months now since I picked up an 05.5 2.5L Jetta back in Dec.
      Ive been here since 06 and have had 2 other vw's so im no noob.

      My First VW. 2000 GTI VR6. Bought it bone stock. This was what it looked like last.


      Then I picked up my 1990 Corrado G60 which ended up with the BBM Stage 3 kit and made me hate my life shoulda bought a VR


      Now Finally me and my wife bought the mk5, started out bone stock like this.
      \

      Not much done since dec but now it looks like this. Hopefully going to get some more things done before waterfest

      looks good.

      How come people that want to " introduce there self" don't use the "official introduce yourself" thread?
      I just used it

      I remember you from my
      MKiv days, you had some sticker above your headlight and LM reps if I recall correctly.

      I had the black jetta with Tiffany blue RS/Mam MT1's

      Liking the car thus far. Keep at it.

      Did it right in the past, and still doing it right. I'm a huge fan of matte paint probably because my car is matte jeep green so your already cool in my book. I really like the white visions, and I actually like your tails for some reason. Looking foward to seeing more of your car in the future
      Replica wheels are like fake boobs. They look good on the outside, but when it comes to quality, Nothing beats the real thing.

      What do you mean someday? Lots of people hate it now!

      I will always have a soft spot for a MkIV JTI.

      Welcome! All the cars look great...curious to see what you may have in store for the MkV.
