My VW Golf transformation

Some of you may remember that I sold my C63 AMG to put the money into the business. I then went and bought a MK4 Golf V6 4Motion.




As you can see it's not the best looking car and just looked too ordinary for my liking.

Having spent a few 's she now looks totally different:







I'm very happy with the results, it looks a lot better than I imagined.
Still miss my C63 though It may have gone but it's not forgotten.

Nice subtle mods You should enjoy it, I had a MK3 VR6 until Christmas - cracking engine, loved the sound of it. Still got a MK1 Gti lingering in the garage waiting for me to finish welding it!

She's not for sale, and if I was to sell I would not let it go for less than 5k.

Carlos I've spent 2k on the car to get it looking like it is now.

Nice. I don't normally like those wheels, but they look good on yours.

I wouldn't both with a remap on that car. Save your pennies (up) and go and talk to JBS...
