Former MK5 owner, thought I'd stick up a quick thread on my MK6.
Bought it around 3 months ago now after selling my E46 M3.
Was perfect spec for me (white 3dr, xenons, cloth and nav) all except DSG. Had a MK5 GTI with DSG, and always said I'd never buy a manual again, but this was too good a car at too good a price to miss.
Drove it standard for all of a week before I found some brand new FK Highsport coilovers for sale on gumtree for an absolute steal. Normally would write off any coilovers made by FK, however I had the highsports in my last GTI and they were brilliant coils for the money. I've had KWs and Weitecs before, and these easily compete for daily use.
SO stuck them in and fitted a set of CH-R's I'd bought previously.
Next up I bought a set of TTRS / RS3 Brakes for a bit of a steal. Have the better disk option, not that one which warps and causes wheel wobble. (According to the seller) Currently stripped and sanded back for a refurb. Not sure whether to go red or stay black, so feel free to fire opinions at me!
Also took advantage of Revo's -25% blackfriday deal, and got the car stage 1 mapped. Couldn't believe the difference. I've had Revo maps before, but this time definitely felt like a bigger jump in performance. Really enjoying the car as a result. Money well spent!
Also have a Eurojet turbo back exhaust, so hope to get that and an intake to jump up to stage 2 soon, along side the clutch.
Other plans are LED rears, smooth front bumper, wider wings to allow a further drop, maybe some ARBs and chassis mods. See a set of H&R Ultralows on here for fair money, but have a load of other stuff to get first!
Going for a good all-rounder. Something that can hit a track day on Saturday, look good on the show field on Sunday, while still being comfortable and economical to take me to work on Monday morning.
Thanks for reading.
