Straying From the Stereotype: Robert Farry’s Bagged & Boosted GTI
When most guys think of the Volkswagen scene they think of bags, roof racks and outlandish touches like sticker bombing or wheels that seem to be coated with leftover paint from a club that is home to raves. Some seem to be concerned with how low they can go instead of how their car performs, because most will say low and slow is the name of the game. Now if you think Robert was simply concerned with the low and slow life, well you’d be sadly mistaken.
This MKIV was designed to be something special for Robert. Instead of just slamming it and calling it a day he just had to add a little oomph for his buck and call by way of going with a bigger turbo for his GTI. Another challenge that Robert had to deal with is that this MKIV had previous internet fame so when he got it in his hands he knew he had to completely change the car to make it his own and not another bought not built cautionary tail.
His first step was putting the car on air to get it sitting pretty which was quickly followed by going for big boost so that he wasn’t another stereotype Volkswagen. In the end he’s got a GTI that is classy and has the performance leaving others wondering what just happened. Of course for Robert the car isn’t even close to done as next up is shaving the bay followed by a complete color change on the car. With the progress he’s made so far we can’t wait to see what’s in store.
Robert would like to thank: “My WCM family, Ryan Hall, Dustin Finely, Rotiform, Air Lift, Unitronic, ATP Turbo and USRT.”
