First off ladies and gents, I'll admit I have a big time modding addiction. I got issues and I don't want an intervention.
I'm Jason and I recently picked up a Black Oak Brown Metallic 2013 VW CC Sport+ that I've got big plans for. She'll sit nice on bags and 20's with plenty of OEM+ mods, matte wrapped and maybe a wee bit of power mods. More on that once I figure out what I want to do but for now, its the stance and aesthetics for phase one. I've been on Fourtitude/Vortex since 2005 and have built a few VAG cars, as follows (in chronological order):
First VAG car was a 2006 Audi A3 (stage2 APR) w/ iForged wheels and a molded in ABT body kit (never again, LOL):
Only had this 2008 Porsche Cayman for 6 months which had no mods worth discussing here:
407 crank on the dyno as a Stage 3 car was the number this 2009 Audi TTS hit and the list of mods is a bit too long to bother getting into here. The fun part of that build was that I created a webisode series that outlined the mods and why I chose to use certain bits in my build. I wanted to throw a different spin on the whole "build thread" deal and that's when I came up with the video documentation idea. Long story shortened, the guys at Vortex Media gave it a home and it ran for 14 webisodes, called Project TTS/SF. Wheels were HRE c93s (then VMR V13s for the military theme as seen here) and it was wrapped in matte Army Green 3m film by Vinyl Styles:
This 2012 Jetta SE was a daily driver which saw high miles and very few mods except the M-Technica Turbo wheels and a drop on JOM coil overs:
Finally there was the at times, very dramatic and stressful build of this 717 crank HP 2012 Golf R. Gabe and the Bluewater Performance fam out in Denver worked alongside Jeff at United Motorsport and as a team we all crossed the 600 wheel threshold for the first time as an AWD 2.0T. The beginning of this build sucked and once Bluewater got their hands on it, they literally saved it from the scrap pile. It was genuinely that bad. Needless to say I heart Bluewater! :
All those other cars are gone now and I am left with the Golf R as a ripper & runner for the weekends and now this beautiful CC:
I'm pretty stoked about this new adventure building an executive level whip and look forward to meeting a bunch of you out here on the West Coast and back East as well as the south. When this car is done I plan to bring her out to a bunch of shows.
