Default Pics of the new daily driver

Finally got a daily driver which will double as my wife's weekend car: 2007 VW GTI with DSG, fully loaded. Got it CPO with 26K miles. The car is a ton of fun to drive!

Of course the question will be if we'll mod it. Funny thing is wifey already agrees it needs a drop

I have a MK5 GLI and it has been a very good car. Zero problems @50k miles. Check out some ecu tunes. I have GIAC and its the way the car should have come from the factory, 50ish hp, 90ish ft/lbs, very smooth. Have fun with the new car.

Definitely get a drop, probably just springs. I'm sure there will be some other things down the road

Cool, thanks!... I just signed up on vwvortex and golfmkv and was looking at the different options. Crazy how much cheaper it is to mod these versus the M's.
