I just bought a 2003 GTI 20th AE about 5 hours ago, but visited this site a few times before as a part of my research before buying. Anyways, just thought I'd introduce myself to this forum.
-Korean w/Irish/Mexican/Chinese/Indian tendencies
-maintenance/recalls up-to-date (including t-belt/water pump)
-ALL STOCK (chick owned it before me)
As of right now, there are no plans to modify...yet. I plan on giving it a full detail this weekend along with a set of new tires (current ones pretty worn). Just out of curiosity, anyone have any experience with the Kumho Ecsta 4x? I saw them on Tire Rack and they're pretty cheap ($116 per) compared to other tires. They even got slightly better ratings than tires in the same category (ultra high-performance, all-season) that are way more 'spensive.
I'll try to remember to take some pics this weekend after I give my GTI Blue Balls a good cleaning.
I paid $6900. The spoiler's clearcoat is peeling and the front bumper was re-painted and was done horribly (some chipping and peeling). I'm thinking about going vinyl for the spoiler instead of having it repainted. My friend can get the materials pretty cheap so just thinking of trying it out.

Spend a little more money and get the Conti ExtremeContact DWS. They are a far superior tire.
