    Question Mods and Cost

    Hey all....

    This is a list for MKV mods, organized by price. post up your mods and price, and Oregondweller will add them to the list!

    Here are the amounts I was thinking about:
    >$100
    >$250
    >$500
    >$750
    $1000 & up

    List the things you'd either do or have already done and an approximate price, and let's see if we can get a nice long list going.

    >$50 or less:
    -Interior LEDs
    -License plate LED's
    -LED City light replacements
    -Remove sound deadening material from bottom of the hood

    >$100:
    -K&N (or equivalent) high performance air filter
    -Clear sidemarkers
    -ultra white headlights
    -aftermarket floormats
    -Painted Calipers
    -Eyelids for headlights
    -Painted engine covers

    >$250
    -Neuspeed P-Flo
    -Cross Drilled and slotted rotors from DRT brakes
    -Fk Springs
    -EBC Brake Pads

    >$500
    -Gti/Gli grille
    -Paint center of the hood black

    >$750
    -APR ECU programming
    -Sway Bars

    Please share your thoughts...

    Yeah good idea, although won't the costs for any mod differ depending on the yr and engine size??

    Probably so, but at least there will be a list of different items that might work on various year models and engine sizes, as well as other mods that are not yr/model specific.

    Cool Re: Mods and Cost

    That sound deadening material hanging under the hood is also there for fire supression purposes as well. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy... Are you trying to save weight by removing this?

    Tip: if you are ever trying to put out an engine fire, don't open the hood (hot hood will likely burn your hands and opening the hood lets more oxygen in), spray the extinguisher up into the engine bay from below the car.

    Just something to consider...

    Keeps heat from being trapped in engine bay and allows heat to escape out the top as well as the bottom.

    he said he was the 2.0L Wolfsburg... he meant he is 2.0T... So it is certainly worth it. 2.0L in North America only came in the 2.0T

    There are some local shops in Orlando and Miami but it all depends on what tune you want to get. You need to look up the manufacturers website and find local dealers there, or you can always ship out your ecu.

    that would be the best, but if you really are on a budget then the stage 1 tune would suffice.
