Jedi-Knight's Tornado Red 'fully loaded' OEM+ GTI - FOR SALE
« on: September 22, 2011, 11:55:34 PM »
Its funny.. The 'fully loaded' thing was what actually made me look at the advert but to show my friend so we could laugh about how someone else is describing their car as 'fully loaded' when it just has DSG or Nav and nothing else... This one really is fully loaded though.

Anyway.. Hi I'm Nathan and I'm newish. I've posted my car history in the welcome section but though I'd start a thread on this beauty as I get it as perfect as I can and then subtly modify bits.

My previous cars...



Also still got this...



So I picked it up from Glasgow yesterday... and today I spent the whole day cleaning it :) Although it was well looked after by the previous owner it needed a lot of tar removal and inner wheel and arches cleaning.

Before and after of the engine bay



Wheels before



During.. with the old tyre dressings and dirt bleeding brown out of the tyres..


And after (note the wheel weights will be removed once the wheels are taken off when I get chance)


Car covered in the pre wash detergent which was then pressure rinsed before shampooing and drying.



Now it was clean as in if you wiped your finger on the paint, no dirt would come off.. but there were still lots on bonded contaminates.

See the tar...


Now see it disolving..



Car was then given a mild polish and wax. It really needs a full correction but that will have to wait till I have more time..

Exhausts before


And after


Finished for now...










Close up of some of the lovely options..

10 Speaker syster with 3 in the front door and 2 in the rear (on each side obviously)


... and with a great sounding, easily removable sub in the boot with a remote on off switch up front..



Heated leather


Sunroof


MFD2 and DSG and heated seats


Multifunction wheel and highline computer


Arm rest with 6cd changer


Xenon


Parking sensors

Gonna have the wheels refurbed in anthracite and keep those on over the winter. Will have it remapped too and it needs a bit of paint work too which I'll get done over winter.

Then in the spring it will be on H&R coilovers and 19" BBS CH or CK again in anthracite. A bit of carbon garnishing on the exterior and interior. Talking to someone about a interior retrim as well with either alcantara for the seat inserts or the ED30 cloth.
