      So I thought I would post up some dirty pics of my .:R and post up the mods since purchasing a year ago

      When purchased:

      58k miles
      EIP 93 tune
      EIP street exhuast
      EIP CAI
      Tinted tails
      Tinted sidemarkers
      Extra .:R32 badging

      Mods:

      78k miles
      Ugraded tune from EIP to UM
      Original tails and sidemarkers back on
      Replaced CAI with K&N drop in
      Kenwood touchscreen headunit
      Euro springs on bilsteins
      Refreshed headlight lenses
      Cupra Lip
      Euro switch
      Tinted side mirrors
      Mk5 rear wiper (put on today after pics)
      Tint
      Remote windows

      I have other vehicles, but the .:R is just so much fun , plus a car is meant to be driven. I don't understand those enthusiasts who only drive sparingly. I might as well own a piece of funiture to sit in my garage and look pretty. Show the world what you have everyone...Drive it

      I used the 3M kit they sell at autozone. It has 3 or 4 different applicators that you connect onto a drill. Took me about an hour each headlight. The longer you do it the better results you get.

      Looking good
      It's ironic that a few pics show the Atlas moving vans in the parking lot behind the .:R...I guess all the vehicles in that pic "haul the goods."
