Traded her in...
 
Its been a while since i have been on here because about 6 months ago I upgraded to a 2011 VW GTI. I must say, I loved my focus, but this GTI is unbelievable. Bought it with 244 miles on it bone stock. I have done a few things to it since i have had it. I have put on a eurosport intake, a eurosport cat-back exhaust, painted the stock rims black, de-badged, painted the vw logos black, and last but not least... I am now Revo-technik stage 1 tuned! I have gone from 200 hp stock to about 265 hp after all the upgrades and wow is it amazing! The little car really pulls hard. As i mentioned before no hate to the focus at all! Just wanted to share with everyone! Let me know what you think of the new car![IMG]http://img835.imageshack.us/img835/6986/img0064oa.jpg Uploaded with ImageShack.us[/IMG]

MkVI GTIs are gorgeous. I can't believe they've been out for four years though, they still seem brand-new to me.

Same here I keep thinking it's the new model. Congrats, looks good. The pizza cutters look so much better black.

haha never heard of them being called pizza cutters before, but now that you mention it they kind of do! But i do agree with you, i like them a lot more black as well. thanks for the compliments!

I love it man. Im slowly loving VW again.. I had a 09 jetta that was a headache and we got rid of it for more than one reason.. but the GTI and the R are reallly nice.. we got a couple peeps here that have VW's.. Dietrich, Ryan and Avie.. i think a few others too..

My cousin has one exactly like that stanced on saw blades. I don't know where I picked up the pizza cutter name (I know I saw it somewhere), but people know exactly what I'm talking about when I say it.

oh nice! I would like to lower it a bit but first up is a new pressure plate for the clutch. Unfortunately the stock clutch slips a bit in 4th now because of the tune, but the pressure plate should fix that right up! The whole clutch assembly with the new pressure plate will then be rated for around 400 ft lbs of torque. Next step after that is most likely down pipe and stage 2 tune. Then maybe lowering:)

I have always liked those. This one is no exception.

Real nice looking VW.

I went to school in Menomonie, and with the amount of time I spent there, I should probably be a doctor by now. hehe. I hated it when I was there, but looking back I do miss a few things about the town.

Congrats.
