2009 GTI Pirelli, 3 door, 56k miles. £12k in parts and labour to modify. All invoices present from new.
£13600.00

Howmanyleft records 194 Mk5 Pirelli's as licensed in the UK at Q1 2017. Of these 71 are DSG.

In summary:
Excellent condition, garaged stored, not a daily drive. Stamped service book, serviced annually. All invoices present; a comprehensive file from new will be supplied to the new owner. Maintained by JKM of Portsmouth with genuine parts.

Full details:
JKM, the garage that look after this car, are a reputable specialist in Hampshire who enjoy an enviable reputation across many forums for VAG group vehicles and are well respected in these communities. The changes made to this car were made exclusively by them and with their advice and recommendations. To this end, over £10,000 has been invested in parts alone and are either genuine VAG parts or best quality third party items. Absolutely no corners have been cut and the build of this car is supported by a thick history file with all invoices from new.

All the modifications carried out are functional rather than cosmetic not withstanding a change in wheel colour when I had the Pirelli wheels refurbished. There are no other cosmetic modifications on this car either internally or externally.

Barring the wheels and front brakes the car is standard in appearance. The OZ wheels were chosen because of their light weight and high strength and that they gave correct running clearance to the front calipers without the need for spacers. These currently retail for around £1495

The AP Racing 6 piston calipers were chosen in a dark colour so as to be a little more discreet, but they do have yellow lettering in keeping with the Pirelli scheme which was a happy coincidence. The brake rotors (which are floating) and bells are all AP Racing parts as supplied in their kit. This kit, coupled with the lighter wheels, dramatically reduces un-sprung weight and rotational mass thereby improving suspension and steering responsiveness. The brake kit cost £2400.

The exhaust used was the Milltek resonated version which deletes the pre-cat (required for European emissions standards, not a UK requirement) and replaces the catalytic converter with a sports cat. Gas flow and thermal performance are also improved, essential for optimal turbo performance. Excess noise is also kept to a minimum, no drone at any speed inside the car. It’s very similar in sound output to the original but with an improved note and better build quality.

The Revo intake is a well-developed intake with good MAF scaling and good filtration qualities, particularly when maintained as per manufacturer’s instructions. With it the engine can take advantage of improved fuelling throughout the rev range provided by the Revo stage 2 map. Maintaining correct air/fuel ratio is critical to reliability and longevity of the engine and the APR high pressure fuel pump helps maintain this. A standard pump can result in fuel cuts on some cars at certain points in the rev range which results in the ECU pulling settings back to look after the engine. The APR pump is around £800; a pump upgrade is often overlooked since it doesn’t add power per se but helps protect the engine and prevent retarding of settings.

POLAR FIS displays engine parameters in the OE display between the rev counter and speedometer. The most important here is engine oil temperature since it does not heat up at the same rate as coolant. Engine oil temperature is THE most important consideration when driving any car with any kind of enthusiasm. No engine should be worked too hard before appropriate temperatures are reached. High purity ESTER based engine oil is used in servicing this car.

The DSG map gives the car improved gear change points when in auto and works well in conjunction with the engine map.

An LSD is a very expensive and transformative modification. The Wavetrac differential goes about its business very smoothly and unobtrusively and works well with the accompanying suspension changes and geometry. Levels of grip under certain circumstance are dramatically improved and control in the wet is improved. This was around £1700 supplied and fitted. It’s not a common modification due to cost and the fact it’s not economical to remove it and sell it when the vehicle is sold on.

Revo engine mounts improve the throttle response by better control of engine movement compared to that provided by the overly soft OE mounts. Throttle input results in instant changes in wheel speed, there is no ‘damping’ in the drive train to overcome. The TFSI engine can move around quite dramatically in between gear changes. There are other conditions that manifest in a FWD drive car that could be exacerbated by such a large pendulum moving around in the engine bay, such as wheel hop. This is essentially a loss of and a regaining of traction.

The fitted anti-lift kit controls the usual change in toe angle under acceleration and braking thus helping to maintain traction and good steering feedback and responsiveness. The OE console bushes provide very poor control of toe angle changes under braking and acceleration.

The Bilstein B12 suspension kit was selected as it’s supplied with Eibach springs and as a pair they have been engineered to work well together. So as to best match these parts, Eibach anti-roll bars were also fitted.

Audi TTRS lower control arms permit the setting of camber angles that are not possible with OE parts, currently -2.00 degrees. They also allowed the fitting of genuine VAG cooling fins for the brakes.

If you are about to buy a standard car (which may well have been modified and returned to standard on a budget) with a mind to modifying it yourself this car would be worthy of consideration. It’s not been modified with an inadequate budget and would provide significant savings against the cost of modifying a vehicle yourself. None of the work undertaken was limited by cost or the need to later remove parts prior to sale. If an individual were to buy a £9500 car in standard trim and have a specialist carry out this work it would cost in excess of £21,500 based on my invoices for parts and labour. I’m offering this car for £13,600 in fully modified condition which is a saving of around £8,000.

If you’d like to know more about this car or the work that’s been carried out please request through me that you’d like to contact JKM and I will ask them to expect your call or email if you are genuinely interested.
