Josh Hernandez was looking for a 2003 Volkswagen GTI 20th Anniversary for a while and eventually found this beauty. "It's a 1 of 1000 20th anniversary GTI," he mentions. As of now the GTI only has 73,000 miles on it, and Hernandez has installed a bolt-on K04 turbo and custom roll cage. He also took out the rear seat and installed 4 (four) 10" subwoofers. "I also just installed Air Lift Performance suspension and put it on some AG wheels," mentions Hernandez with excitement.
