      March 2010:
      I picked up her up:
      2006 BMP GTI 6 spd. w/ 29,986 miles

      Day One Stock Mode 4x4 by Rus.K, on Flickr


      Like everyone else, I tried to keep her stock for a while but didn’t last long. It started with small simple mods: White smiley, White VW emblem, Yellow fogs, Color Matched side markers.


      October 2010:
      I thought this was the lowest I would ever want to go… Picked up some HR Super Sport Springs and Bilstien Shocks and Struts.


      HR Super Sport Springs by Rus.K, on Flickr


      Bilstien Stocks/Struts by Rus.K, on Flickr


      East Canyon: Jermey Ranch by Rus.K, on Flickr


      Favortie 2 by Rus.K, on Flickr

      November 2010:
      She sat like this all throughout winter:

      **Winter Setup**

      IMG_0094 by Rus.K, on Flickr

      Not having any money being a college student, I needed something to tide me over. Decided to DIY paint my huffs white with gloss black inserts like the “new” Detroits.

      June 2011:

      IMG_0363 by Rus.K, on Flickr


      DSC_0294 by Rus.K, on Flickr

      This didn’t last long and ended up being the start to a long and endless pursuit to finding the right set of wheels. Two weeks later I found a set of OEM Mercedes Monoblock Areo 1’s on craigslist.

      June 2011:

      DSC_0171 by Rus.K, on Flickr


      DSC_0150 by Rus.K, on Flickr


      DSC_0105 by Rus.K, on Flickr

      I also finally got some Euro R32 Tails to clean up the rear a bit:

      IMG_0448 by Rus.K, on Flickr

      August 2011:
      Found another set of wheels on Craigslist and thought I would give them a try. I had never seen these before on a MKV and thought it could be unique. Audi Excalibur wheels 17x7.5. et.45


      IMG_0693 by Rus.K, on Flickr


      September 2011:
      Picked up a Rep Votex Front Lip:

      IMG_0712 by Rus.K, on Flickr

      September 2011:
      Finally found my Dream set of wheels! Staggered REAL BBS LM’s. 17x8/9
      Had to do a bit of refinishing but finally got them looking good enough to ride around on.


      IMG_0863 by Rus.K, on Flickr

      With wheels like these, you need to be a bit lower…

      Picked up some 8380 coils:

      IMG_0955 by Rus.K, on Flickr


      DSC_0579 by Rus.K, on Flickr


      University of Utah: SLC, UT by Rus.K, on Flickr

      November 2011:
      With snow starting to hit the ground, I needed to find a new winter setup. Found some OEM VW Salamanca's off a brand new 2012 Golf.

      IMG_1257 by Rus.K, on Flickr

      Decided I liked the Murdered out look for winter so I plasti-dipped the Samalacas flat black:

      Top of Main: Park City, UT by Rus.K, on Flickr


      DSC_0179 by Rus.K, on Flickr


      DSC_0403 by Rus.K, on Flickr

      Again she stayed like this through winter…

      Over winter working two jobs I was able to get her completely paid off and had a bit left over to spend on the ride. Color Matched Lowers! I feel like this cleans up our cars a TON.

      April 2012:
      Borrowed my buddies wheels for a bit. Audi B7 Titanium’s Powder Coated Candy White. 18x8 et.43 all around:


      New Park: Park City, UT by Rus.K, on Flickr


      39th Main: Salt Lake City, UT by Rus.K, on Flickr


      39th Main2: Salt Lake City, UT by Rus.K, on Flickr

      Rode like this for a couple months, but then eventually had to give back those beautiful Titaniums. But with Wuste right around the corner, I had to switch things up a bit.

      May 2012:
      Talked with the one and only Phil and ended up doing a 3 way trade for some 18” Work VS-XX w/ Gold Bolts. If you don’t know this guy, he is a pleasure doing business with and a stand up guy. Thanks again Phil!

      This is how she sits today:

      210 E & Central Ave by Rus.K, on Flickr


      210 S & Central Ave: Salt Lake City, UT by Rus.K, on Flickr

      I still have a ton of plans ahead of me, possible K04 or maybe even some sort of air setup is in the books. Its an on going life style that many of you are familiar with, unfortunately.

      Thanks for taking a look. Comments and Criticism are always welcome, especially about my more recent pics. Always trying to get better.

      Very nice. Those Titaniums looked the best. This thread and DustinWark's car really make me wish I would've went black. The GTI front end looks best in black. Very clean

      Is that like buying a pant at the Gap? You must be the person to go to when I'm looking for a scissor.
