      Recently I have been getting asked if I had a build thread, so I guess it's about time to make one. Currently I don't have any huge tear-apart-and-rebuild plans but she is always changing. So I guess this will be my random update/picture dump thread.

      First heres a quick re-cap, mostly from various photo shoots along the way

      I have had the car for about four years now, purchased completely stock



      At first I did some really stupid things
      (H&R race springs, badgeless grill w/o hood filled, joey modded headlights, FK bumper vents and the NASTY wheels)


      Somewhere in here I got a set of sportcloth seats, horrible picture but you get the idea


      Then things started improving. I got some RC's and a rep Votex bumper with M3 skirts


      November 2009 - Saddest day ever. I got sideswiped/t-boned in her.



      April 2010 - E-codes, 4-motion lip, GLI tails, FK AK coils and a few other things here and there



      October 2010 - Main things included the roof rack and custom R/A/R/R tails



      Mid 2011 - Ronal SX wheels with crayon center caps, Euro tails and shaved euro trunk


      September 2011 - The bags, stainless steel trunk floor and Seidl grill came



      March 2012 - She went to the body shop for a while.


      April 2012 - She came home with shaved hood, euro stubbies, euro rub, and fresh paint here and there. While she was gone a I spent my time wasting money on her. OEM HID's, Lexan covers, SEAT headlight/HVAC controls and IDF drop plates.



      June 2012 - First and only shot of the engine bay. Polished intake manifold, Neuspeed P-Flo, Forge oil/coolant caps and deleted windsield washer fluid bottle


      September 2012 - And thats brings us pretty much current. Picked up some Kyowa Zero Mesh wheels...



      Now I did leave off most of my interior....so I'll just cover everything now
      3 spoke steering wheel, GLI brushed trim swap, OEM Bentley shift knob, pink stitched shift boot, TT pedals, Kenwood touch screen DVD, GLI center console, .:R leathers, GLI black parcel shelf, full GLI headliner trim, suede headliner, euro 25th AE black non-sunroof dome light.....I think that about covers whats in there right now. (not even including the stuff I no longer have)




      Purchased since the last photo shoot- 42DD interior LED kit, larger spacers for the front and something I'm not going to post until its installed.

      Feel free to follow me on IG: mindy13vw

      Future plans:
      Engine (I can't decide on what I want to do with it)
      Exhaust - installed on page 5
      New seats (again)
      Replace all the beat up soft touch pieces
      Recover door cards - finished on page 8
      Replace steering wheel - Grip Royal installed page 7
      More paint/body work
      Get my hands on a non-saggy grill
      Different wheels
      IDF control arms
      Glass headlight lenses installed on page 6

      Then theres always the stuff I dont know I want yet

      Random updated:
      Sold the Kyowa's, final photoshoot page 6
      A friend loaned me his MAE's


      Picture dump threads:

      Thank you!!! Actually no, I bought this one off here, although now that show season is over I'm going to strip down my other own to either polish or powdercoat.
