Q&A:

Your Name: Shasta

Car's Name: GLI DOL

Model/Year: 2012 Jetta GLI

How long have you had your car?
Since December 17th, 2012.

Is there anything unique about the history of this car?
From what Niello told me, the car came from Arizona.

Why did you choose to purchase this car?
I desperately needed a four door (and to get back into a VW :) ).

Does anything in particular influence the direction you take when modifying your car?
Yeah...anything that would involve voiding my 100k mile warranty.

What would you do to the car if money were no object?
Suspension. Stage 2 upgrade. That’s pretty much the big stuff.

Who has been your biggest critic of this project?
The boyfriend. He’s always trying to talk me out of getting some kind of suspension. LOL

Personal Message or Special Thanks:
Niello VW and Darcee for selling me the car, my mom for the awesome interest rate she got me, Mike Suranyi and my boyfriend Brandon.

Congratulations. :thumbup: I dig the motorsport wheels. Were they one the car at purchase or did you get them after the fact? How wide are they?

Did your GLI not come with fogs? :huh:
