      The purpose of this thread is for me to keep track of what im doing to my car in a bit of a timeline. If you have any questions/comments good or bad feel free to chime in.
      Ill add links to stuff where possible. I apologize for the sub-par photos most were taken with an Iphone not my SLR

      The day I fell in love with the car (showroom model) 2011 Jetta SE with Conv.

      When I brought it home (came tinted with monster mats, cargo blocks/liner)

      First thing I did was vinyl wrap my rear emblem and add a (non oem) lip spoiler

      Next step was to throw some LEDs all-around:

      I found the Rcd-310 to be a bit boring so I decided it needed replacing. Got a great deal on an RCD-510 on Ebay.

      Next up was some fresh new wheels. Got a great deal from a fellow vortex member on his 18'' Autobahn wheels.

      I enjoy a more aggressive wheel so I picked up a GLI paddle shift wheel. Feels great, and all controls have been coded to work.

      Got some carbon vinyl from ebay for cheap and wrapped the door cards only. Easy to do and helps set the interior apart and unique.

      My fascination with my interior furthered when I got the itch to upgrade my RCD-510 to an RNS-510 nav unit.

      Tint wrapped the side mirrors for a more subtle look and added chrome grill


      Enabled comfort windows via remote
      Increased comfort turn signals to 5
      removed horn confirmation on lock
      enabled full MFD:

      Near future:
      Projector retrofit
      Some kind of suspension *cash strapped*
      rear view camera
      engine stuff.
      possibly a euro/gli bumper
