Have decided to move to a mk6 GTI or maybe a 7R so have decided to take the plunge and put my golf up for sale.
Have enjoyed owning and driving this car for the past two years. Still drives strong and pulls well.
As you can see from the pictures, the car has had a few upgrades. Performance wise is completely standard but I've made 'OEM' changes where I've felt made the car look better. List of changes and options below:

Genuine Edition 30 rear valance
Colour coded side skirts
Replica front splitter
Smoothed US spec front grill
Genuine xenon headlights with washers

Passenger seat handle with GTI plate
Cherry red hazard switch

Front and rear armrest
The car has full Volkswagen service history and I am the second owner on the car. Prior to me it was an elderly gentleman who used the car on the motorway to commute between Leicester and Cornwall for his business. As it stands it has done 123k miles (which may creep up as its my daily drive) the previous owner did all his work with Parkway Leicester VW and I continued the service history with them. It has has had the cam belt and water pump and DSG oil changed in my ownership and has also had a major service and more recently a minor service carried out by them.
I have also changed the PCV valve, Diverter valve (rev D) cam follower and one of the injectors changed while I've had it. Please see service history listed below:
21/1/2008 - internal service 21,000 miles
17/11/2008 - oil change service including dust and poll on filter 33,000 miles
Date and mileage not included - DSG Oil change with spark and air filter
17/09/2010 - oil change service 62,000 miles
30/11/2011 - oil change service with long life oil uses 75,000 miles
14/02/2013 - major service 85,000 miles
07/03/2014 - air con and oil change service 101,000 miles
19/12/2014 - DSG oil changed 111,000 miles
24/2/2015 - major service including oil change service with spark plugs and filters 113,000 miles
02/09/2015 - cam belt and water pump changed 118,000 miles
20/02/2016 - minor service and oil change
The car has also has had the rear boot lid and front arches and sills replaced by VW under their 12 year paintwork warranty.
MOT runs out in May 2017 - has just been done and passed with no issues.
Also to note, the car is a 2007 registered but does come with an AXX engine.
Negative points are that the car with the miles does have a couple of stone chips which I have had touched in with the VW Touch up pen. The passenger side mirror does have a crack in it from when it was knocked over but cosmetic and can be fixed. The centre console around the DSG gear selector has some scratches which again is purely cosmetic. Tyres will probably need changing soon if you want to be picky and the windscreen also has a crack along the bottom however this appears to be filled in and has not failed the MOT. It's never caused me a problem so I've never felt the need to replace it.
My build thread will have more details on my journey the car and more pictures available on there if required. Car is HPI clear and has no finance or anything outstanding on it and has always been run on Shell V power in my ownership.http://www.mk5golfgti.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,96108.0.html
I'm sure I must have missed something so if there's anymore questions feel free to ask.
