Stage 2, R Tech, AKS, MK6 GTI, DSG fun.
« on: May 26, 2016, 01:14:33 PM »
Hello everyone.
I've been looking for a new family bus for a little while now to replace the Tigiuan that's ok but not much fun. I've manage to track down a MKVI Golf GTI, DSG, leather and 49k miles on the clock which I picked up on Monday. Having owned a MK5 GTI with DSG 10 years ago it a car I always regretted selling (due to kids!).
The first thing I did after placing the deposit was ring T tech to book in for a stage 1 map. Then track down a Revo intake from TSR. I've got a VW DAB, satnav head unit to fit at some point along with cruise control. That was my plans for the car. Keep it standardish.  :happy2:





Only problem is that I've got the modifying disease that I can't cure. So I've ended up buying some 18 wheels and tyres, turbo back exhaust. Next on the list to buy is a bigger intercooler, Polar fis and sort of the suspension.  :laugh:

Sod standard. Tasteful modifications, with the right parts, and good software, is the way forward. Sounds like you're on the right track!

I'm not sure I guess your eye is better than mine! Which side do you think is out?

It's on the list. How easy are they to get hold of?

Panel alignments look fine to me mate. Wouldn't worry, main dealer wouldn't sell you a bodge repair jobbie
Rear LED lights can be got easily on eBay used, or if you want new from Carsystems. Around £330 odd new with adapters. Massive difference to the rear  :happy2:

Where did you get hold of the calipers mate? They seem a bit thin on the ground at the min. Refurbed at least. PM me if preferred.

I didn't and don't mean to sound horrible regards my message as it's a nice car. The off side looks slightly out where the bonnet meets the wing and looks a little raised and headlight to wing top corner also looks like a bigger gap or I'm just looking at it from the wrong angle. near side front bumper looks ill fitted and different shade to wing?.

Sorry to have to say this but you'd be surprised at what the main dealer sell to customers.
