I bought a 2003 VW GTI 1.8T with black leather, and winter package, new from McDonald in January 2003...  I love the look of the european 25th anniversary and the US 20th anniversary.... so I have created my own version that I wish VW would have released.  I pretty much have a 20th interior, seats to come in the next year or two and a 25th exterior.

Future plans:
- APR Motorsports Intake manifold (honed and polished).  Comes with larger throttle body (end of December)
- Big Brake Kit.  Most likely ECS 13.1 Stage 2v2 (Porsche Boxter S fronts) w/ 12.1 rears (by spring at the latest, december at the earliest)
- Carbonio 3" CAI made for Stage 3+ cars w/ flow straightener built into it (as soon as it is released)
- Wheels, unsure right now.  I like Kinesis K27 (17x8), and BBS RS-GTs (18x8), or maybe a VW Bravo (17x7.5).  I like BBS mesh look and 5 spokes.  I like the ride of 17s, but love the look of 18s.
- Shave Door things.  Sometime after I have a house and garage so I don't have to worry so much about door dins.
- W8 interior thing (black from eurotech)
- Seats, I am not 100% sure yet... but I'm about 90% sure I'm going to get Sparco Milano Prestige and have seat heaters added to them.  I might recover the middle section with a suede.  Definately doing black leather.  I'll most likely have the rears recovered with matching leather.
- Some sort of 4 point harness that is quick release like the Schroth seatbelts

That's one hot GTI, and that color looks awesome.
I see you in your car once a while around the hood, but just for a very brief moment.  8)

Awesome work Jack!

You know how I feel about your car. :D

The devil may be in the details, but it's all the little things that I love about what you've accomplished.
Two big thumbs up as always!

Jack's car is very well put together.  I had the pleasure of riding along for some laps at SCR this month and it was amazing.  In addition to the excellent car, Jack is a very skilled driver - the perfect combination.

Thanks for all the kind words guys.  I am not one who does things for other approvals, but it is still nice to know others like your taste, especially those I consider friends.

New photo.  Did some interior LEDs (white) and license plate LEDs, I love them.  I also have a nice spot for my 1st Aid kit and tow rope.  It looks like it was designed for it.  I'll have to see where to put the triangle when I get it.
