MK7 Golf GTI Stage 2
I’m 26, I own an MK7 Golf GTI running stage 2 software and stage 1 TCU software. I've always had an interest in cars and how they work, always enjoyed tinkering around with them. I ended up doing a college course to become a technician and managed to get into a garage a year after I finished my course. Ever since then I have always had an interest in performance and show cars. I started my performance days off with a Vauxhall Corsa VXR. I also had that running stage 2 software and hardware. I had the car nearly 2 years until I ventured onto the VAG scene and it was the best move I made in terms of build quality and performance opportunities, however, the VXR gave me the insight I needed into the scene and tuning.
My Golf has stage 2 software and stage 1 TCU tune and is also fitted with the supporting hardware

Currently not finished as I want to possibly go bigger power, Currently requires a bigger intercooler, Few more handling bits that I would like to add, poly bushes and anti-roll bars, possibly some bigger brakes. And maybe some more carbon bits but I will see.
I wouldn’t say it's unique from others as there are many around however it is mine and I absolutely love the car I have made it.
