Question Anybody around RAF Mildenhall/Lakenheath?

I'm stationed at Mildenhall and I've seen a few gencoupes around, no mods that I could tell. I've got a '13 that'll be in country in March hopefully :-D

I have a few AF buddies at Croughton and Lakenheath. Not sure about Mildenhall though.

Spotted one a few times on Mildenhall. Red w/Plasti OEM wheels. Had a Diffuser that fit UK plates and had a built-in fog light, I wish he was on this forum because I want

A blue 2.0 as well on Lakenheath

I haven't got it over here yet, I'm rocking an '89 Golf GTi lol. I should be getting my gene realistically at the end of july or august. I want to be on leave to ship it myself and just keep getting denied leave :'(

But I definitely will have to keep a super close on it for sure, wire up some sort of aftermarket immobiliser possibly. Already have 5 wheel locks on each wheel (for literally watching my wheels )



In case anyone was curious about my awesome Vdub

Post Build thread status :-d

Alright, I'm going to use this thread rather than starting another. I'll be able to keep things a bit low key since I don't need a whole lot of attention; rather, a thread of progression from stock in FL to modded in the UK.

2013 2.0t RSpec, 6mt

Anyway. I'll start off with a list of parts that I either have in hand or are installed.


INTERIOR
Triple A-pillar gauge pod
AEM Wideband O2
AEM Oil Temp
AEM Boost
Greddy Informeter Touch
TWM Short Shifter
BLOX Bronze 490 Shift Knob

EXTERIOR
Custom Headlights
Custom Tail lights
Hood Vent Replacement
Gunmetal Wings
Ceramic Window Tint F20%/R35%
Exhaust Plug, Duh!

PERFORMANCE
Weirtech Intercooler Piping
Short Ram Intake
3" Catless Turboback -> Aluminum Single Exit Exhaust
Synapse BOV
SFR 1.0(Beta) Tune

SUSPENSION/WHEELS
20" Incurve IC-S5 Matte Black
(20x9+20)(20x10+15)
Stance Super Sport Coilovers

And I know that , but I'll get to those. A lot of my parts haven't been installed since I've been away from my car for a bit. It's sitting at my parents house in Florida where they have hooked me up with installing a few...Cause they're pretty much awesome

El Stocko, chilling in Ft.Lauderdale at my brother's house.

Pre-tint action, clean though



Getting some loving from my Dad & Uncle.


Here's how the tip looks, it doesn't protrude as much as it looks. It's also pretty sexy though


And I feel that I should share this, it's a teaser shot from Flyryde that I got. It's been a long time coming, but I can't wait to mount these bad boys up.



As you can see, there are quite a few things not installed; but, I'm in no rush. I'm trying to take some leave for June-July and finish it up and then put her on a boat to sail over here. I'm hoping to make it for the Annual Keys Run down it...well..Key West.

There are a few in the uk, including mine here in August. Y'all have any diffusers with fog lights built in? I've seen one with it here and want to find one.
