2003 IY 20th AE GTI #3277

(1/2) > >>

redline:


Since the 90 got totaled, it was time for a new car and this steal of a car came up. It has quite a bit of TLC to do, but I'm hoping to have her to perfect condition by the start of show season next year. I plan on keeping her for the next 60-80,000 miles so maintenance is top priority. I've split p my future mods into a couple of stages and the idea is that as soon as I get done with one stage, I can move onto the next. However, if I find a good deal, I'll jump ahead and buy it.

Existing Mods:
