Default YaTuSabe R53

Long story short I had a mkV GTI stg 2 euro Bumpers blah blah all the goodies on it and a manhole decide that it wanted it's soul so it destroyed the bottom end of my car since it was lowered all the way on Koni coils = totaled i wanted another VW but it pained me to look at stock GTIs so I went with a car I always liked and prob wouldve never gotten as i planned on keeping my GTI forever but I ended up with a 2005 MCS with 32k. I've had it for 6 months already but it's still a work in progress....

Mods so far:
KW v1
M7 strut brace
OZ supperlegerra - Yokohama s-drives
Belt line blackout

I have some Aero grills to put on as well as color matching the headlight rings and just ordered the 17% pulley kit from way motorworks

Only stockish pic I have but the KW V1s are on it already here

Looks good! I've never seen those wheels before but I really like the way they look on the car. Nice job.

Looks sick man. I was going for a set of SSR Vienna Kreis (18x8/9) but I pass at the end.

Thanks guys, haven't done anywhere near as much as I did to the GTI but its a slow work in progress, currently debating what color to do the faces on the Rays, it's time for an update.

Yeah, seeing your car makes me want those wheels again but the center caps are in $350 + custom 4x114.7 hubs + 18 wheels on a Mini turned me off.

Your car looks amazing.
