Hey Y'all. I'm a newbie here in SLC, UT. Well, I'm new to trying to figure out how to hook up my car but I've been driving it for two years now.

I drive a 2005 VW GTI 1.8T and nothing has been done to it. I purchased it two years ago and the warranty just expired so I figured I could start playing with it some.

I don't know anyone that is into cars so I'm here trying to meet a few people who are.

I don't have a lot of money right now so I wanted to start off with trying a few cheap ideas. Maybe painting my rims black like the picture I posted in my Maybe??? album.

Any ideas?

How many miles are on yer gti? I didn't know they still made MKIV bodies in '05. Yer a lucky guy ^-^

But yeah, the thread that Matt directed you to covers everything. If you have any specific questions such as "what the f*ck is a DV?" feel free to ask it in this thread.

On another note: I think "Catch Can" should be added to the "Common Mods" sticky. Yes?

Welcome! I'm new as well, just joined the other day. I bought a 2005 MKIV 1.8T GTI a couple weeks ago! I love it.

I also created a thread JUST like this when I joined. I'll give you the link to my thread, it has alot of helpful info:

and of course the mod list:

and these sites are my favorite so far, they're pretty straight forward:

There are 82,300 miles on my car. Yes, I am lucky. I tried to buy a 2003 but the bank wouldn't finance it because the dealership wouldn't sell it with a warranty.

I've started my own build thread. Hopefully my job will give me time to do everything I want to do.

Yes I am. I went to Windsor High and Western Branch High. I truly miss the 757. I can't wait to come home but the closest hospital to home that my company owns is in Richmond.
