Just a little intro. Im 18 years old and am getting ready to move away to college and leave my b5 at home for a year. This is my second car, first was an 89 acura integra. This ones a 99 b5 of coarse and its also the v6 model. I got it in september and here of the pics I've done since then with the little money I make at a pizza place.











Mod list

de-badged
25% tint all the around (cop measured 16% with little sensor)
kenwood mp3 deck
kenwood 1000w mono amp (with bass control)
audiobahn 12" alum 12q subwoofer
custom MDF box
custom engine paint
"PASSAT" doorsills
nuespeed lowering springs (from gb thanks S_klass)
Flik Wasp 18" wheels
Ventus 225/40R18 tires
Kamei grill (thanks 02ripper)
painted calipers (black)
Tinted tails and sidemarkers
modified rear emblem
(nothing that makes the car go any faster)...yet


upcoming mods


Vesteca fog lights (current gb) waiting 2 months now
euro switch
lightened pulleys (first engine mod current gb)

I was thinking about a chip but I'm not sure how benificial(sp?) it is on my v6, any input would help lots, thanks

Also From looking at a few profiles I love the twin tip, dual exaust look, with the zender cut-outs.. I haven't really researched that yet, I probably wont have the money, I'll just wait until I'm an old guy to do that.

I think thats it thanks for checking me out :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

update

Here's a little update since I finally bought a card reader for some pictures.








So as you can see I finished the Audio stuff, Modified the rear emblem, tinted the tails and the side markers, and I painted the calipers. well one so far, I'm lazy.

Thanks for the inspirations guys :thumbup:

I took all that ugly rubber around the emblem off... then i masked the vw and spraypainted the backing black, (instead of the plastic look. then I sanded the back down so it fit more flush with the trunk. Subtle, yet time consuming.
