Hey everyone, my name is Dan.  I grew up in Brandon, but was born and currently live in Winnipeg.

I drive a 2012 Volkswagen GTI, in Candy White, DSG.  Currently has a CAI, 3" turboback exhaust, and a smattering of small cosmetic mods/new summer tires.

I am planning to make a car journal thread that goes into greater detail about my modding journey so far, with pictures!

Hopefully I can contribute to the community by communicating my experiences with certain modifications on the Mk6 platform, which are also often applicable to Mk5 and Mk7 VW platforms.

I'd like to learn any knowledge that I can from this community.  I am also hoping to network with other GTI/VW drivers, and maybe find some interesting parts!

Thanks for reading, btw I was happy to see  :bump: was an emoticon for these forums lol.

    Welcome! Do you have any pictures of your gti? I almost bought a Mk5 but couldn't get past the cam follower issues.

      Thanks!  I do have an ample number of pictures of my GTI.  I have gathered some for a car journal post that I will hopefully be posting today.
