Just picked up This 05 type S VBP , 106k Miles. Clean title no accidents from the original owner it’s all stock and looks pretty well taken care of. It’s got some flaws, paint on the roof and rear spoiler is beaten from the sun. Slight clear coat burn on trunk , roof and hood. Just going for bolt ons and a reflash for now as I live in San Diego CA.

Just a before pic. Not going to bother waxing it because it will go for paint in the next couple months. It’s just gonna be garage sitting while I tune up and wiper delete. I know I’ll go I/E/H after paint. Still trying to decide on what to do with the car.

Yeah I was really happy with how the car turned out.

My headlights were pretty bad and I had to sand them down a lot.
Before and after pics. Took a few hours but worth it.
