Welcome to my site. I created this site as a place to share and discuss the hidden modifications I’ve done to My GTI. I don’t like anything eye-catching on my car; I prefer to hide my modifications. No one can tell that this GTI has an extra 100 hp and 100 lb-ft, a 700-watt stereo system, and a hidden communications suite. It is my “everything car” which serves as a commuter, a travel/vacation car, a roving communications station, and a workhorse with racks and trailers.
This site will not feature flashy wheels, vinyl graphics, wings, “stretch,” “moar low,” “hella flush,” “camber,” or hardly any of the other trendy things today’s cool kids find appealing. My efforts bias toward making the car a better, more enjoyable commuter and road trip machine that can carry friends/cargo, pull a trailer, and blast over railroad tracks and rough roads with reckless abandon. I prefer function over form. So, I do not pursue “cool-status,” not in the usual sense, anyway.
Still, I hope you find my content worthwhile. I welcome your comments and questions. I moderate all comments as a precaution, but will publish and respond to all polite and constructive entries.
