This must be one of the most respected and loved GTI’s in Canada! It’s low, it’s clean, it’s unique and it’s owned by a … LADY!

Here is what CJ told us about her car:

“The GTi has changed quite a bit in the 4 years I have owned it. At first I wanted to keep the car mildly lowered and go balls out on power. Started buying parts to go FI and then this nice “Street Racer” law was instated and I said screw this, no point to having a High Powered car with that law in effect. So plans changed quickly afterwards. Sold those parts I had bought for more aesthetic looking parts. About 90% of the mods were installed by myself, some of the bigger jobs with the help of friends and my forever supporting boyfriend Marc. I love installing stuff on the GTi, it passes time and keeps me out of trouble. When there is something I cant do myself, the work gets done at Advance Autowerks. Any paint work was done somewhere locally.

There will be a few subtle changes to the the GTi for 2011, but will be keeping those changes on the DL for now. :)”
