Update.

So got a few parts fitted.

Scorpion downpipe with sportscat.
Vwr600 intale
Vwr turbo elbow
Vwr muffler delete
Airtec intercooler
Apr dogbone mount

Stage 2 apr map done at ecotune. It made 408bhp and 436ftlb.

Car does feel fast etc but i'm not sure i like everyday driving with it stage 2, see how it goes in next couple of weeks.

Had a nightmare with potholes or craters. Buckled a wheel and got it fixed and then today 4 days of having it back i kerbed that wheel. Not kerbed a wheel in about 10year so i've made up for it

Decided i'm going back to oz wheels, always had a soft spot for them. Seen a cracking deal for a last set of superturismo's in grapthite.

Lucky our MK5 GTI's are more reliable than this site!

Small update.

Finally got the brakes and the wheels on.

Chuffed with them, but i can see myself getting the wheels done black in the future.

Was tinkering with the idea of getting the calipers done in yellow. But nearly £300 to get then professionally done i thought was a bit steep. So keeping them all black.

Nextweek got the silenced mid section going on and thats it about done. Well for now.
