      Hey guys, I made a small thread a while back, but I'm doing a bit more now so I decided to start an actual build thread. I'm currently driving a 2012 Candy White base Golf 2.5L. This is it, day 1:



      A week before, I had actually picked these up:



      Professionally painted A4 wheels from Dubrix on the forums, awesome deal. I had to get some new tires, but I threw them on right after and went down to the Chesapeake:



      And I gave it a wash right after:



      The next step in the process came up almost completely randomly, when I realized RGB LEDs and controllers were inexpensive. I wanted footwell lights, and after running far too many wires - this was the result:











      There are more lights to light up the rear footwells as well. I thought they came out awesome, they look even better in person.

      Next, I picked up a golf ball shifter and dropped it in:



      Past that, I have a fully shaved GTI bumper sitting in my basement that I'm waiting to get a grill assembly for, and that's going on ASAP. I'll take a few pictures of that down the line and post them up.

      My next project is a bit on the edge, but when I get further with it I'll certainly update you guys.

      The standard stuff I want to get done eventually:

      -coilovers
      -intake
      -full exhaust system
      -3SDM .05s
      -amplified speaker system
      -euro cup holders
      -GTI style steering wheel (flat bottom)
      x-golf shifter knob
      -rolled fenders
      -carbon fibre mirror covers, front lip, rear valence
      -roof done in black vinyl
      -GTI style rear spoiler
      -LED headlights and rear lights
      -metal pedals
      -aluminum glove box handle
      -euro switch
      -euro storage bin

      The personal projects won't be listed until I'm actually working on them, I want to keep most things a surprise. Cheers

      Not a huge fan of the wheels but maybe a drop will set them off. Also, pics of the girl? That's required.

      Yeah, I plan to pick up a different set as soon as I can afford them, but for the price these wheels look great. I'm going to try to get a better picture of them the next time I'm with a friend with a camera. The drop should help in any case

      And the girl might be in some future pictures

      I recycled the rear badges and threw this together as a temporary thing, not sure how I feel about it at the moment. Thoughts?



      edit: better picture

      Honestly, I think it's right in the middle. It doesn't look bad at all, but it certainly doesn't improve it much. Up to you in the end

      The badging definitely gives it a unique feel. Still not sure about it though.

      Give it a couple of weeks and see how you feel.

      So I decided to keep these wheels as winter wheels, and one needed repairing. I was already paying for the powdercoat, so -







      Gentlemen, thoughts?

      EDIT: I took off that golf badging on the inside too, it was too tacky for my taste.

      Dear god, mega bump. I agreed with this guy so I had the wheels refinished this summer, and the shaved GTI bumper is on but I haven't gotten any pics yet. I'll update when the wheels are mounted.
