Wink Gabby the Nurburgring Challenge STi: Advan x Alcon x ARC x IAG x Ron Davis x Varis

Hey there, my name is Alex and I am extremely fortunate to own a car of this nature. My first car was a brand new 2011 VW Jetta in white.



Being a passionate car enthusiast who attended the track every week to watch, I wanted to have a car that I could drive around and turn heads, but also take to the track...and that's when I made it a priority to budget my money to be able to afford the car in roughly 3 years. So countless car restoration {I do more specialized car detailing that involves strictly paint corrections} jobs which roughly take 20+ hours worth of work, and working for a few summers allowed me to afford this car. I am super excited to present to you my baby Gabriella...enjoy!





Being a professional restorer/detailer, I told the dealership not to wash the car or remove any of the PDI tape, etc. I did go with the rust-proofing by the dealership, but other than that, I drove the car with all the protective tape on the outside, and plastic wrap on the entire interior still on

Here are a list of the parts/mods that I've done... Enjoy!
***Red Lettering means upcoming mods
***Blue Lettering means part is on the way/ready to be installed
***Green Lettering means part is sold and is off the car
