Fresh wash and a bit of back to black treatment for the front grills.

Looks a lot fresher

Made a vid for testing the 2.0L FSI PCV. Mine is bad and was waiting on a new one to arrive including  the "filter housing to PCV tube". Decided to make a vid to help if ever you decide to test the PCV. I also added a tip for if you have a broken clip...you can clip off the mouse ear portion of the pcv tube clips with wire cutters...leaving the two barbed clips and secured with a snug hose clamp.

Booked my car in for a service, cambelt + water pump and Main + Inline thermostats as the car barely gets to 60 degrees unless in heavy traffic. She's certainly getting some love of late!

That's going to be a tasty bill if done at a main dealer!

Going back to the same place that did my suspension but even then its a a good chunk of cash! Might get the plugs and coils done at the same time still mulling that over atm...

Good work!  I tried to install the puddle lights in mine but was a complete fail.  After the wiring and coding......absolutely nothing  :grin:

Shouldn't be that much of a problem to fit the ligths?

How did you do it since it never worked? :)

You would think so, but nope, didn't work.

I followed this guide like everyone else!  https://www.my-gti.com/2240/adding-door-warning-lights-to-the-volkswagen-golf-and-jetta-rear

So your car is with Gen 1-2 door modules, so +12v is pin1 and ground from pin 2 or 4.

Mine's a 2007, so could be.  I don't really care about the lights tbh, I just attempted it when I was bored one afternoon  :grin:    Might have another go in the summer!

Wow @Christiank
Those look awesome. I'd like to do something similar myself but I see you've already retrofitted a Mk6 dash as well.
I guess I'm after the scirocco 3D clocks

Thanks mate.
Yeah I've got the Mk6 dashboard and centre console fitted in my Mk5.

Try search out a facelifted scirocco cluster that has the "3d" housing and then just use the front from it to your current cluster or the 3d/color one you're getting :)
