The Story

Hello, this is my 2008 GTI that I have owned for a little over a year now and I have done every modification on this car myself other then the mud flaps. It has the basic intake down pipe upgraded plugs and coils + tune that every VW has. The tune is from eurocustoms and is custom mapped through my ac button to turn on and off the flame map. It also has 2 step and is lowered on cheap race land coilovers that are maxed out. I run 18x8.5 1552 Tarmacs and the fitment is really good I just need to go a little lower. For a $6000 car Iā€™d say she looks pretty good, for a mk5.

Current Setup

  • Wheels: 1552 Tarmac 18x8.5
  • Tires: 225/40ZR18 Nitto Neo Gen Tyres
  • Suspension: Raceland ultimo coilovers maxxed out (4in) in rear and 3.25in in front
  • Performance: Catless downpipe, high pressure fuel pump upgrade, ecs intake, custom catback exhaust, custom flame tune with 2step and flames I can turn on and off from my ac button

Planned Upgrades

  • Suspension: Swift springs to go lower
