My Black 3 Door Manual ED30 No2297
« on: March 17, 2016, 08:48:31 PM »
Hi folks I'm relatively new to the forum and thought it was about time to stick up a few pics as standard before I carry out any of my modifications and try and keep this updated.

I've had my Eddy about a month or so after my blue 3door manual Mk5 R32 went to Dub heaven. I'm previously a member on the R32OC forum but I have to say this is a very impressive forum with some great info and insight.

Here's a few (not great) pics taken with my phone but will stick some more up given time.

Car is standard but I have luckily just acquired my Number plaque from VW (3rd owner so very lucky) and have just purchased some H&R V2 twintube coilovers which I will hopefully get the chance to fit at the bank holiday weekend next week.

Cheers mate. Tbh I'm enjoying it a lot more..yes 4WD was good and engine/exhaust note was addictive..but to be fair the Eddy sounds pretty grunty itself, I love the rarity and pescaras..I don't miss the mpg..i prefer black and I find personally the half leather to be more comfortable and supportive..I cld go on and on but it just feels nicer right now..ask me again in a few months and I can give proper feedback comparisons lol.. loads of pros and cons

Cheers mate. You know I only thought about that the other day when looking at other ed30s..its defo got one but doesn't look as pronounced..has break light etc just doesn't look as long...it's a german import later edition so don't know if that has anything to do with it??

You'll probably find that it's the actual bootlid not a spoiler, Oem ed30 spoiler sits on top of that bit. Looks like my carbon boot, Stood out to me that's all  :happy2: car looks clean!

Cheers guys, and yes you are definitly correct I checked it out and looks like it's just the bootlid..I went over the car with fine tooth comb to make sure hasnt been replaced(bootlid)and it doesnt look like it has..paranoia kicked in slightly  :confused: I will be getting a bootlid spoiler at the end of the month after I find the correct part number after searching on here unsure as to OEM or Votex

Again cheers for the comments folks had a nosey at both your cars...very very nice :happy2:
