My 07 BMP GTI
« on: December 13, 2018, 02:17:34 PM »
This is my 07 GTI, in past and present guise. Car is fully spec'd (US) four door with votex kit. I'm the second owner and car currently has 108k miles.
Car is currently k04 with DM K04+ tune.. 3 bar map, JHM hpfp internals. Custom catch can. Billet aluminum oil filter housing. 034 aluminum insert. APR catted dp. R8 coils (of course lol). BMP CAI. Lowered on Raceland Primos over mk7 Austins. 17z BBK...15f/20r mm spacers. LED tails.

Interior wise? Eonon HU. P3 vent gauge. BFI heavy shift knob. Dash tray. R32 aluminum ashtray. Black hazard button. Drivers side underseat drawer. LED lighting. Tried the mk6 climatronic retrofit but could never get the a/c to work. Canbus gateway newer revision remains.

Immediate future plans? MFSW retrofit as soon as the CH revision module arrives. Cruise stalk revision G. Clutch upgrade (clutchmasters that's been collecting dust). Custom shift boot made with mk7 GTI cloth. Badgeless grille. Also have aluminum LCAs and a golf R IC boxed at my local shop.

I'm also on vwvortex and golfmkv forums under the same username. A lot of info here that I haven't really seen on those sites. Has me interested in a future cluster/clock retrofit.. and maybe giving the climatronic retrofit another shot.

Pics of my current and previous mk5 GTI. Previous was an 08 GTI base with votex. This car had the same engine mods and some of the interior bits. Did an R rear bumper conversion. Totaled after slight frame damage in an accident (not my fault). Pic from SOWO cabin in Helen Ga. Ran Cadillac wheels for a bit. That failed attempt at mk6 climatronic lol. The obligatory had station pic..

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays!
Decided to go badgeless just for a change.
Added a new shift boot (mk7 fabric)
Installed mk7 steering will (not complete)

***If anyone has knowledge about going from dual to single stage airbag I'd appreciate some input

***Install was fairly straight forward until I 1. Realized my car had dual stage airbag and 2. My mk7 mfsw had the wrong wiring loom
