Never really planed to make build thread for this car since I have never wanted to be a show or heavily modded car so didn't really see the point. My vision was to make a nice daily driver. Thanks to encouragement from fellow dubber and a member of this forums (thanks Colin for all the kind words) finally decided to create blog/journal of my everyday joys and issues with MK4 GLI. Here she is. Blurry sneak peak - more to come. Be patient ;)...

Future plans:

# wheels - pretty much set on CCW but will see depending on the funds; fully polished 18"


Photoshop



# New 2 DIN head unit; thinking about OEM conversion Monsoon to this



# maybe Remus or Supersprint (still have connections in EU :cool:) but it's BIG MAYBE [don't like it too loud];
# maybe HID retrofits;
# full respray, same color BMP FTW;
# down the road maybe Big Turbo and all the goodies after my K03s craps out (it'll take long time since I have like 54K on the odo and it's religiously maintained);
# also thought about bagging it;
# also dreaming about R32 drive train conversion (4x4) = $$$$$$$$$$$

I'll see as I go...

Thank you good sir! Gotta roll with "LOW&SLOW" motto and be careful - that's the only way. R32 drive train conversion would be **** but big $$$ and tons of work. I know a shop that completed swap like that on mk2 - mk4 1.8t engine + mk4 R32 drive train = monster. So it's doable especially if I have mk4 as well. I most likely never do it. Like I said I had dreams about it...

I dont know, or care if you were the first to put the german colors on your bumper like that, but i definitely like it on the all black GLI. Definitely feelin the whip in general. **** dreams, make that R32 conversion a reality. I will sell my golf to help fund it if i can drive it a couple times :pppp

If I ever do it it'll be long time from now. It has only 54k miles on the odo and have no problems with it at all. If the turbo/engine craps out in the future I'll start thinking about the swap I promise.

So I got this in the mail today...


It'll gonna go on the passenger side windshield along the A-Pillar. My question is: how it'll look better - the letter "V" by the hood or by the roof? PM me your vote.

Not too many votes... I guess no dub love for me. Thanks to everyone voted. You'll see the results soon.

About 21.5 inch long. I sent it back cause I realized it was to be applied on the outside - it would get damaged by the wipers. I'm getting internal application one.
