Just picked up This 05 type S VBP , 106k Miles. Clean title no accidents from the original owner itís all stock and looks pretty well taken care of. Itís got some flaws, paint on the roof and rear spoiler is beaten from the sun. Slight clear coat burn on trunk , roof and hood. Just going for bolt ons and a reflash for now as I live in San Diego CA.

Just a before pic. Not going to bother waxing it because it will go for paint in the next couple months. Itís just gonna be garage sitting while I tune up and wiper delete. I know Iíll go I/E/H after paint. Still trying to decide on what to do with the car.

dopeyrsx 02-16-2018 03:19 PM

Looks good! I wished I had black interior.

My headlights were pretty bad and I had to sand them down a lot.
Before and after pics. Took a few hours but worth it.

Hahaha wow. Bet you change your mind when you see how mine came out... and yes I am going to repaint the roof and spoiler... I was just gonna wait a bit. Aesthetic BS can come last. In the mean time here is my sexy pics. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...4bc602d3b8.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...75c0ca0340.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...ced9db429e.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...1ac7cbee2f.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...1fa5f33a4f.jpg
