Kev's Edition 30 - Reflex Silver - Build Thread
« on: July 11, 2018, 04:35:52 PM »
Hi all,

I'm Kev based out of Southampton.

My previous car history has included:
Skoda Octavia Mk1 VRS
Seat Leon Cupra R
Honda Civic Type R

So I recently picked up an 07 Plate Edition 30 in Reflex Silver with 120k on the clock.



The car needs some TLC.  Interior wise it is in really good shape for a 10 year old car with the exception of a slight tear in the seam on the drivers seat, however, the exterior needs some work, all alloys curbed, scratches, fogged headlights and a rear bumper which is a slightly different shade of silver so guessing it's been resprayed at some point.  The engine and gearbox seem strong.

The cars missing it's build number so I'm trying to find that out from VW Customer Services which is hard going as they say they'll call you back and never do.  I even had a call scheduled today and they didn't call.

So the first plan of action is the following to tidy the car up:
Change the Cam Follower - just to be sure as no history of it being done before - going to take it down to JKM to do and give the car a once over
Replace the Drivers Door Lock Latch Actuator
New Key Fob
Restoration of Headlamps
Wheels Refurbished - New Centre Caps
Replace or respray Rear Bumper
Replace Number Plates

I'm sure I'll then add some modifications like Remap, DV, Air Filter but it will be slow going as we are renovating a house at the moment so cash is going towards that.

Cool not far away at all then. I'm up and down the m271 every day so I'll probably see you at some point (Maybe at B&Q lol)

Rownhams in the picture?

You’ve done some similar bits to me. I’ve been a bit slow off the mark.
Get that cam follower done definitely. I did mine in about an hour. It’s worth it for the piece of mind.

So spoke to VW Customer Services and found out my build number is 0719. And to make it even better they still had the plaque.

So this turned up in the post.



Now just got to decide where I mount it.

Car went into JKM down in Portsmouth yesterday to have the Cam Follower changed plus new Rear Discs and Pads.  Always great service down there.

Also ordered a ITG Pro Panel Filter and GFB DV+ from Awesome today  :smiley:

Once they've arrived I'm going to give the engine bay a clean and then hopefully organise to get a Revo Remap put on by JKM.

I also need to take some more pics.
