Default my new 2011 GTI mk6

Well i finally sold my 05 MINI S to my cousin.. it was a hard thing to do, but 3 weeks later I got myself a MK6 GTI, Candy white, 2 door, sunroof, nav, xenon, roof rack, DSG transmission. I originally ordered a 6 speed manual, test drove it but found it more logical to get a DSG, and also cuz the dealer i got it at gave me a great deal.

Car has 99 miles as of 2/21/11, haha im scared to do any mods to it, but hopefully after the break in period ill start with a tint and some coil overs, and wheels. ( just right now the car seems to perfect, but i know itll soon fade )

Here's ( no name yet )

make sure to wait until the engine break-in is over. i hear tinted windows ruin the revability of the engine.

niiiiice. i love the white, if i didn't live in CT i would get one in a heartbeat. it is definitely the best color fo sho.... after the engine is broken in, get a giac chip. the boy had one on his mk5 and it was ridiculously fast. if i get a golf tdi, that will be one of the first mods.

The tuners are having a hard time cracking the encryption on the 2011s. Revo did it first and APR recently announced they broke it. If GIAC hasn't done it yet I'm sure it'll be soon.
