About “Turbo”

1.8L turbo with 85k miles. I bought this GLI in March of 2012. I replaced all the gaskets and installed an AEM Cold Air Intake. The paint was rough, and probably never waxed. I did a complete paint resto to bring back the shine. There's not a swirl or blemish on the paint now. More to come!
