The GTI conversion from Low&Slow to Race Car

Thought i should put this up, was planning on selling this as I was looking at a diesel for a daily driver, but don’t really want anymore car payments and these cars seem to be a bit of bastard child of VW, as you can get them for stupid cheap. So instead of loosing a bunch of money I’m going to turn this into my rainy/summer daily and just drive my shit box Ford on days it snows.

First time around it was all about as low as possible with stupid wide wheels, and stretched tires you know the typical young kid thing to do. This time around I want to make it more performance orientated, I’m not ditching the bags just yet, but I feel a good set of coils will be in my future.
