We all have our opinion about coilovers vs. air ride segment, some opinion that when you put in air ride systems on you ride that your automatically a cheater or have to be Rich. Thats not all true, we all have our own ways of doing things its all in a what you prefer. You have to remember whatever you do on your ride even in life, everything has their pro’s & con’s its all in the risk you take.
Vin has been into Euro scene since his first car at 17, started off with an 01 GTi, he ended up having four volkswagens in the matter of one year. Until he took the big step & decided to get the 2012 Jetta GLI. Him and a couple of buddies were working on his friends big turbo audi, all of sudden he had an idea of starting a car club in long island called “Long Island Euro” with 3 of his friends. Thats when they Started hosting meets and as time went by they were starting to recognized.
He actually first started off with coilovers on his car, but after smacking his axles on his frame everyday, he said to himself thats it ok is time for bags. He was always kind of anti-air solely for the fact he thought like others that it was cheating, but after going air he found himself never going back to coils unless he had a drift car.
Not much engine work is done to the GLI, well not just yet, he really went out for some hardhitting looks and i must say he did a pretty good job with the 3sdm 0.05 wheels.
Future Plans:: More wheels, Intercooler, Exhaust, Tune, & possible KO4 turbo upgrade down the line.
