White MK6 GTI Edition 35
« on: July 28, 2015, 02:15:30 PM »
Out with the old - In with the newer!

Woke up one day and it hit me that my MK5 could start costing lots of money! It was on hydraullics, Works VS-XX show wheels and CH's as dailys.


Started looking at BMW's, didnt think I could afford the 10k one I was looking at. Then ended up spending way more on this Edition 35. @GS WAX had looked after this thing! Coated in Cquartz and literally no money spared on keeping this beauty in good condition. Don't feel worthy! Only 25K Miles on the clock
Few of Garrie's pics, I've not managed to take many myself!  :ashamed:



Gloss black defuser, should have come like this from standard to match the mirrors!

Extra Edition 35 Badge for the boot, as there isnt much to show its heritage otherwise!

Maniacs paddles



Not sure how to improve on this yet. The whole point of a new car was to build one show worthy. Put it on airride and some killer wheels. Now I cant bring myself to do it just yet - The car's too good and goes like sh*t off a shovel, its only Stage 1. We shall see!  :happy2:

Spec List:
• Stage 1 Revo Map
• Stage 1 DSG Revo Map
• Factory Xenons
• Factory LED Rear lights
• 19" Optional Extra Glendale Wheels
• RNS510
• Reverse camera
• Front & Rear parking sensors
• Power folding wing mirrors
• Factory Dynaudio Upgrade
• R8 Oil Cap
• Maniacs DSG Paddle Extentions

Great buy! Lovely colour. Seems to be well spec'd. What other specs does it have?  :smiley:

Not fond on that colour of the wheels. Maybe anthracite or silver... :confused:

Really well spec'd indeed! :happy2:

Maybe you could sell the wheels for a good price and that would help getting a new sport exhaust. :wink:

Yeah I'm a lucky fu**! Dont know how i managed to get this but i did!

Yeah, cheers for that! Never skipped a beat after that - Shame the RNS I had pretty much blew up!  :grin: RCD after that worked perfect!

Good luck with your DSG madness!!  :notworthy:

Installed a P3 Cars Gauge a few days back. Very easy to install and i like having access to some extra features you wouldn't normally have access too unless you have polarfis.

Tested the 0-60 function on a private road (very handy that!) and clocked 5.66. About a second under standard. Not too fussed about this figure, but its nice to know the map to Stage 1 has made a difference.

Really like these, Don't see to many about either!

Not my cup of tea Air-ride, Stretched tyres etc but it looks like a really nice car!

Hope it serves you well.

 :happy2: Hopefully see you around one day!

Maybe a decent set of coilovers would do the trick instead!

Yeah they seem pretty rare! Literally only seen a handfull around.

It's not to everyone's taste! I'm still undecided! Stretched tyres - I'd only ever strech a tiny amount, not like some!

Thanks  :happy2:
