The Story

After accidentally poking a hole in the cam cover of my real project (long story, whoops) I started looking at cars to daily/functional parts cars. I already know the mk7s, their reliability, and bang for your buck but I wanted something capable of light off-road/snow performance. So I looked into totaled alltracks to fix, then high mileage, and then one popped up from a local garage owner in great condition with my near dream spec. 2017 SEL with marrakesh brown interior was high on the list of cars I really wanted and this one took the cake being premodded. So all I did was ruin it by taking off the lowering springs and putting on a lift kit (and swapping some stuff to the gsw). Last picture is when I first got it (lowered on Rotiform TUF-R).

Current Setup

  • Wheels: Fifteen52 Turbomacs 17x7.5 et 45 (I think)
  • Tires: Yokohama geolander A/T 215/60/17
  • Suspension: B2bfab camber correcting lift kit and rear shock extenders
  • Performance: IS20 (GTI) turbo, Unitronic ECU/TCU tune
  • Performance: Racingline intake and turbo inlet pipe
  • Performance: Unitronic intercooler
  • Performance: Milltek downpipe with GESI cat
