It is a nice looking ride. If you go to VWVortex.com you'll see a lot of modded Dubs. This one is done pretty cleanly, in many ways an anti-rice rice racer... but of course it is German.


The only thing that turns me off is the stretched tires. Personally I dislike the look and cannot think it is a good idea either.

Most of the issue is that he stupidly spent thousands of aftermarket dollars on something as innane as a VW.....

He should have just bought a better performing car.

What you gotta keep in mind is that while you guys in the states have your Mustangs and Corvettes and all those great cars, here in Europe the Golf is a pretty sweet car and gets modded alot!

It is even more stupid to spend thousands of aftermarket dollars on every car. I (errr...my parents) bought my Golf for approximately 30.000 DM (we bought it before the Euro introduction), since that I have not invest an additional Cent into this car because it is totally useless and it is looking butt-ugly in my opinion.

I'm not much for modified cars, I'd rather put the extra money into a better car as well. But I do like it when it is done conservatively. This one doesn't scream out at you, and I respect that. However, I'm not digging the BBS type rims on the Golf. Some time ago, I saw a Golf with 911 Turbo look alike wheels, and I thought that looked spectacular. Nice looking car overall though.

I had a 2000 A4 VR6 GTi that was similar to the black car above, except it had Oettinger RE 18's on it and a Remus exhaust. It was nice, but the car had a lot of flex problems with the stiffened suspension, not to mention the other VW antiquities.

Spending money on cars is based on personal taste, as what most people who do are looking for is exclusivity. You may buy a more expensive car, but some people don't like the 'me too' impression that creates. Whatever you can afford, that's all that means.

Spending lots of money on modding up a more basic car is pretty dumb. The only reason to do it is because you like working on cars and personalizing them.

As for the wheels I think 18s look a little too big on the Golf, especially with stretched tires. I like the red Golf above too, I think it was one of VWVortex's project cars.

DesertJets, yes that red Golf was one of vwvortex's project cars. I usually don't like a lot of these modified cars, but that one was done with impeccable taste (if I may say so). That's why I included it in this post, because I like that style of wheels with the Golf's body. They seem to complement eachother well.

too bad Golfs are getting heavier and heavier, as is the trend for most actually... but the car on this thread is Respectable. Revives in me old feelings.  Smile

In 1993 I bought my first car, a 1986 Golf GTI, 112bhp, 940Kgs. The perfect car for my needs of then. So enjoyable, fast, safe, ...attaching.

It was similar to this one, the only difference being the rims:




I am not getting used to the new front of the Golf 5, but opposed to the pic above, definitely looks more actual! Big grin

The funny thing about the new Golf is that the current Golf still doesn't look outdated. In fact, the current Golf (MK IV) actually looks like a more balanced and natural design, while the new Golf looks too "styled" instead of natural. It's like fake boobs versus real boobs. Real boobs will always reign supreme.  Big grin I'll reserve my final judgement until I see it in the flesh, and I think it will grow on me.

I like the new Golf. It still looks like a Golf, but like a 21st century Golf. Remember, cars have to look good for 7 to 8 years, not just when they come out. Same goes for BMW, I think they're going the right way with their new designs, 7ers are becoming more and more popular, the 6er is sold out for the whole 2004, the Z4 was selling like hell last summer and the 5er definitely looks more modern than the E-Class or the A6 (granted, it is quite old).
