Kyle's 2004 VW Jetta GLI


by Sundeep Yashpal May 12, 2017

When we started looking for people to sponsor for goclean, we knew we were looking for a certain type of person.  The kind of person that shares the same passion as us and eats, sleeps, breathes cars.  That is why we approached Kyle Pearson with his custom Mercedes Benz Dolomitbraun Metallic painted 2004 VW Jetta GLI.  

Aside from the custom paint job, Kyle's GLI is sitting on Koni Fully Adjustable suspension, and 18" Work Meister SR1's.  When it comes to talking about this car, I think Kyle says it best himself.

"When I bought my GLI in November 2015, I knew right away that as soon as it went into winter storage, it would look completely different in the spring. But I never would have thought that it would have come this far, this quick. Every dollar spent to change something or improve something brings me closer and closer to my vision.. my masterpiece. My car is my canvas of self expression. And I'm very proud to say that my car is one of a kind. It's not some cookie cutter car you see 10 times on an hour long road trip. It's unique. This is my passion. This is my drug. And I'm hooked." 

It's safe to say that Kyle's build is always going to be evolving since his car is an extension of himself. We can't wait to see what else Kyle has in store for this platform!

Keep an eye out for this car at shows like Fitted and Eurokracy this summer!

Approximately 1/6 of the human population does not have access to clean drinking water. So much death and illness is caused by a lack of sanitation and the inaccessibility of water.  Every 20 seconds a child dies as a result of water related diseases.  Half of the hospital beds in the world are occupied by patients suffering from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene. Take that in for a minute.
