Hey guys,

I'm new to this forum and thought I'd share with you all my pride and joy.

I spend my time on VWgolf.net.au for you Aussie guys. Thought it would be fun to join a more specific forum.

In Australia, the Candy White MK5 R32's were a rare gem. Only about 60 in the country.

Here's a link to my build thread on VWgolf.net.au, but I will start a more uncluttered build here. http://www.vwgolf.net.au/showthread.php?12800-Fonzies-Candy-White-MK5-R32

Factory specs:

2008 MK5 R32
Candy white
Sunroof
RNS-510
Leather with heated seats
4 Door
DSG

Here is how she all started





Half way since December 2012



And now



Thanks for looking guys, hope this is an exciting stay!!
