    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mU_xON1RKuE Each project build requires you to put a lot of effort and time into it and in some cases turns into a money pit over time, because, you know, mods never come to an end, lol. If you’re looking to upgrade the suspension on your 2015-2018 VW GTI, yet...
