      No Separate thread for each set of photos, no more vulgar thread titles, but there may or may not be vulgar images to come. I bought this 20th bone stock with under 50K miles. It has been through loads of progress up until this point but I will track of additions I fee note worthy. Thanks for checking it out.

      I got the OEM stubby's on and took a few shots. I'm pretty stoked on how they came out. More low as well. Enjoy.

      Thanks, I think I'm more stoked on these photos than the stubby's themselves.

      Just for the record, the stubby's are OEM mirrors. You are right though, to each their own.

      It looks like a brand new car! I like the look of a mk4 over the 5&6 but that golf has such a clean new car look. Best of both worlds

      Thanks, it feels great when people say that. It never looked like this when I got it though. Don't get me wrong, it was a clean one owner 20th, but it had it's fair share of bumps and bruises. I tried to take care of them all and then some. VW charges way to much for plastic **** for the record, I don't even want to look at all the receipts for the little pieces. With this car it was my goal to make it better than it was in 2003. From all the maintenance, little upgrades/mods, unitronic tune, glass headlight lenses, eurojet TBE, body work, wheel refinishing, and endless hours of disassembly and cleaning. I hope to think its better than it was off the lot in 2003. I don't think I will ever make this a racecar or mod the exterior too heavily, but I am definitely thinking about a shaved hatch, bay shave, and possibly bags in the future.
