Rtbrunelle's 09 GTI

Well, It was a sad day to see my 3 end. I picked up a GTI for a good price with low milage.

One of the last photos of the 3



And here is the GTI

2009 TSI with DSG

Mods so far:

30% tint all around
Resonator delete
Rear wiper delete









Hopefully a lot more to come

Rtbrunelle's 09 GTI

He's buying a lip this week and we were looking into corvette salad spinners but that didn't work so well so I found some cool mesh wheels he'll get eventually.

Also getting coils at some point.

Did a ghetto exhaust lol but it sounds good

He doesn't like that they're not square; I think the fronts are 8 wide and the rears are like 9.5s or something like that?

They look good but bobby is trying to keep everything daily-able that looks good, not going for anything crazy lol, he travels in his car to much.

I think this GTI needs a Speed spoiler! Haha

Well if it's going to be more function than form for daily driving and traveling then I vote to just keep it the way it sits. Maybe just a mild drop with the other GTI wheels. They look similar to these just more sharp haha

yeah no we definitely aren't slamming it lol, no the wheels I picked out are cheap and should look very good; have a nice old school feel to them.. but who knows when any of this stuff will be bought lol, probably not for a while.

They're different for different generations, the ones that I could get for like 275 are 9.5 all around. Id love to run them but for a daily with looking close to 60miles a day for the next three months, it would be too much.

I agree with you on the spoiler, its too subtle. I think they make little add ons to it I might look into in the future.

Im not going to slam it. Will hopefully be getting coils around march-april but just going to sit nicely around the top of the tires or tucking a little tire.
