What are you driving?

Recommended Posts

Great thread. I'm a car guy and VW fanatic.
My current ride. A 2012 MK6 VW Golf GTI with manual transmission (because auto is for grannies)



I don't have too many pics on this phone . Will upload more from my other phone.

A few mods at the moment. Some hardware and engine software. Car makes 200kw at the wheels on a mild tune. Lowered with coilovers about 50% down. I go lower for shows but for daily this is how I drive due to some bad roads.

I'm also in love with the old Vw split window bus. But they are so rare and expensive I have to settle for models and pictures. Golf MKIV R32 on the table

This is my recently done dining area

I drive a boring 2004 Dodge Stratus (just trying to keep it going till I get done with nursing school and can upgrade).

However... my car of choice to ride along in belongs to my significant other (he's been drifting for 10+ years, Nissan 240SX - currently installing a cage and new parts and doing a crap ton of welding).

Nice, I used to have a 240 and drift.... but i wrapped it around a pole trying to be Paul walker in the rain

I'm surprised there weren't more posts though

I'm around 540 to the wheels on a virtual dyno, I still have some more parts to slap on before we toss it on the rollers and get definite numbers. But I have full bolt ons, gt3076r turbo, 30 lbs of boost, and the R8 is my sons, can't have him looking bummy

That's HP I'm guessing? Or Kw

Some more pics of my Golf



With the previous set of wheels. Those were OEM 2 piece BBS wheels.



All taped up for our clubs annual "Dubrun" in 2016




Ride height for shows. Car is still driveable and not right down.


Just a cool pic


Me and wifeys cars. She has a VW Polo Vivo, also running coilovers and OEM BBS wheels





And parked at the last show i attended some time back. I love shows, Cars all day as well as a hookah or 2 always lit.





@Honni your Evo seems pretty well sorted. Excellent choice in turbo. Over here the Garret GT30 is also a popular choice on the Golfs. 300KW at the wheels is easily achievable with a mild boost file. I've currently got the stock IHI KO3 turbo but my look to upgrade to a Borg Warner K04 turbo in the future.
