    Default From China with Love

    Hi everyone, I'm 15 and bought my first car last March. Yes, i was 15, but i saved 3 years of chinese new year red pocket to bring her home. She wasn't that clean when she came home, bent fenders, tie-rod problems, clear-coat peeling of the santa monicas, but got all for $6200CDN. Just replaced tierod, and installed Magnaflow Cat-back system by myself, painted the grille black, painted the brake calipers yellow ( Porsche style!), restored the headlights with turtle wax kit ( amazing results), changed the tires on the monicas Kumho Ecsta LE sport 225/45/17 Y.

    1. pictures of the car after 11.8 months at the end of this post.

    2. Detailed pictures of the 3m brushed aluminum wrapped interior trim on next.

    Pictures with spacers coming soon
    VW GLI VR6 24V 6-Speed 50year anniversairy edition Reflex Silver.
    With trunk lid from 2004+ Jetta, because a mail truck crashed into the old one:facepalm:
    Anyways, here she is.

    11.8 months later:
    Minor modification: 3m aluminum wrapped trim not as shiny as real ones but you can't go wrong with $30

    hand polished 17x7 santa monica wheels, took forever and still not finished, use an orbit sander to remove clearcoat!

    stickerbombed intake manifold, i know i know, but kids love stickers right?

    yellow brake calipers, porsche style, and B6 passat wheel nut cover OEM+.

    B6 passat cargo hook, upload later, basically just drill two holes in the trunk and bolts right in, mom loves it.
    NEW Major modification: Unitronic stage 1 tune, R32 short shifter, Solo-werks coilover, Magnaflow cat-back, R32 control arm bushings( took forever to replace), proper stickers!

    NOW!





    BONUS!
    Our MK2 GTX in China, you won't believe it has a 1.6 20valve engine.

    Our Euopean B6 Passat 3.2FSI 4Motion DSG in China. This is where my cargo hook and 3m aluminum trim idea came from.

    Default Detailed pictures of the 3m aluminum wrpped interior

    Detail pictures of the 3M wrapped interior.
    Not as glossy as the GLI, but pretty close to the brush aluminum panels on the European Passat B6.
    3M wrap bought from ecstuning, it's got a distinct brushed texture.
    I removed the dash to apply the vinyl, also used an ordinary hair dryer to keep it flexible.

    Need to take off some of the stickers and go a little bit lower.

    Love the polished SM's though!

    Face-lifted mk2's are gross.

    Lol thanks! I went about 2cm lower since I installed the spacers yesterday removed a few stickers too
    The face lifted certainly dont look good but does have pretty good internals, like ABS, 5 speed, 20V and sagging rear end, the car literally scrapes the ground when there's 100kg in the trunk lol.
