      I finally picked my little dream boat up!

      I live in Delaware and worked a deal over the net for this little racekor from North Bay Imports out of Connecticut. these guys are pretty swell. Drove up July 20th to take her home. She isnt perfect but man! its a blast to drive!

      heres a few pictures since I picked her up. you can also follow me on instagram same user name. if it will let me.

      Mods-

      ECS rear wiper cover
      ECS blacked out mirror caps
      ECS smoked mirror turns
      ECS dash shelf kit
      BFI torque arm insert
      ESE tuning color match sidemarkers

      Drive it for a few months first and then decide.

      If you really wanna do something get a cheap used intake and remove the hood liner , that kept me smiling for a few months.

      Good choice , however , leave the exhaust off at least until you get bored of the intake

      Let the miles climb... it will never have the perceived resale value of a MKIV

      not worried about re-selling it ever. I die or it dies, either way one of use is ending life in the others arms.

      Great update , wonder how those torque inserts hold up , I know the ECS ones are hated.

      Love the smoked indicators though , been trying to get a set for ages

      Welcome! Always have loved UG. There's once for sale through a dealer near me and have been contemplating trading my GLI for it.

      My wife's R has the ECS one and has been fine. Noticeable difference. My GLI has the BFI one and same thing.

      Most say to get the HPA puck for the R32s but this is a good bang for your buck mod.
