    FOR SALE - £5,250 ono
    Mk5 VW Golf 2.0 (TFSI Turbo) GTI DSG Tornado red – 112,800 miles – Stage 2 remap (including DSG remap)

    A much-loved car with all modification work done by local mapping legends Streetwise. No expense spared. Has been a faithful family car as well as a roaring nutjob when I have had the chance, but I haven’t had much chance since my son was born and I am getting a company car and need the dosh so it’s sadly time to say goodbye. Has some minor signs of age physically (see photos and full description for details) but is a really good-looking car still – I love the look of these. VW really did get it right with the mk5.
    And this is a (tameable) beast underneath. The mods have been done properly, no mad stuff, just the right amount and in the right areas. Steering feedback, switchable power (with SPS Switch included in sale), full heated seats in leather, multi-function wheel, full highline dash, a lovely lowered look with bigger, modern wheels (but original wheels with winter tyres available too!), VCDS for diagnostics, and upgraded nav DAB system, and the right amount of noise from the exhaust and air intake. No expense spared – if something needed doing, I did it. Full Service History. Annual oil and filter service. MOT October

    The mods (all professionally installed by Streetwise of Bristol)
    STAGE 2 Revo Remap – 270 PS & 297 lbft torque– with DSG remap and Revo Technik SPS Switch (so you can switch the map off and on or tweak)
    Revo air intake
    Lowered 20mm on Eibach coilovers
    18” mk7 style alloy wheels w/ nearly new Pirelli P Zero tyres
    (also have the original 17” Monzas with excellent Yokohama winter tyres with full tread for an extra £300)
    Recent Brembo brake discs all round (less than 20,000 miles ago)
    Full Milltek performance exhaust with sports cat resonator (fully legal)
    DNX525 Sat Nav / DAB Radio / Bluetooth / SD Card / CD / Telephone w/ reversing camera
    Multi-function steering wheel with flappy paddles
    Gen3 steering rack in October 2015
    Full highline dash and updated ECU to accommodate
    Full Ross-tech VCDS – do your own diagnostics! (cost £300+ new!)    
    Powered boot pop (not working brilliantly at the moment – probably time for a couple of new struts)

    Recent work
    New gearbox mount, driveshaft and lower arms and ball joints (wheels balanced)
    Replaced cam follower and DV and installed PCV Delete prior to remap
    Brand new Yuasa battery - £130 worth
    MOT until October 2018
    Oil and filter service carried out in October 2017 – full service 11,000 miles ago (approx. 9,000 miles to go) – I change oil and filters every 12 months
    New steering sensor – 6 months ago
    All required work done as and when needed


    The good
    Black Vienna leather heated seats
    Original VW bottle opener
    Front centre armrest, vents & cup holders
    Rear armrest
    Hold button on key to open and close all windows remotely
    The amazing whoosh from the air intake! (especially on launch control!!)
    Automatic lights / rain sensor
    Cruise control
    Free set of fully fitted car shades from Palm Automotive (like Sunniboy)
    Red LEDs in footwells – gives a nice GTI glow! (white LEDs elsewhere so it’s not too eeevil!!)
    Full set of VW Golf official rubber mats front and rear, great condition
    6-disc CD changer but isn’t connected anymore – easily done if you wanted to but I mostly listen to Spotify

    The bad (all documented in the pictures for close-up, gnarly detail)
    Alloys could do with a refurb – nothing drastic – depends how fussy you are
    Headlights are cloudy – I paid £52.00 18 months ago to have them done so not a big job
    Damage, swirling and some scratching (from previous owner loading boot like a clod) and some sun damage on rear bumper - £150 for a new bumper but honestly it looks a lot worse in the pictures
    Buckle rash tear on driver’s side seat bolster (easily repairable and when you are getting in and out of the car you don’t see it – again, looks a lot worse in the pictures)
    2-3 small stone chips in paintwork
    O/S mirror glass has chip out of it – doesn’t cause any visibility problems whatsoever but you might want to replace – see pictures
    N/S wing mirror casing has small black scuff – cheap and easy to replace
    The gearshift cover is scraped but I can throw in a can of Plastidip to sort this – will take any numpty less than an hour but I am not that numpty)
    One of the blades on the rear passenger air vents is twisted – can probably be replaced but I’m never in the back!!
    Only one key

    The ugly
    Kenwood Bluetooth not working as smoothly as it had been post iOS 11… is a software issue. I am in touch with Kenwood to get an update, but if I don’t fix this before sale, you can still plug in to the USB in the glovebox and then you get perfect telephone calls / play music etc. Everything else works a treat and it is an amazing system. If I can’t get a fix before sale I will take £150 off the price so you can pay a radio tech to take a look
    N/S Headlight is slightly out of line – I am sure this is an easy fix for someone and is from when Halfrauds replaced a bulb (I was being lazy!) – I just haven’t bothered because normally it’s not noticeable – price reflects this probably needs someone to look at it – maybe 2 hours’ labour?


    I’ve been as honest as possible about all the bad stuff because I don’t want anyone to feel like they don’t know what they’re looking at, but don’t get the wrong idea - the good outweighs the bad with this bad (good) boy. If you are looking for a well-looked-after, sorted, modified mk5 GTI that you can have some fun with but also potter round the shops without looking like a complete hoonigan, this is the one. What else can you get for £5k that is this much fun and this practical?

    Central Bristol - no tyrekickers – serious enquiries only – call me on my mobile – I am away from Friday 25th at midday and back the following Friday, but we will be going to Derbyshire so if you are in that area and fancy a look, give me a shout and I’ll try to organise around my family holiday! 😊

    « Last post by SpudGTI on Today at 09:19:19 PM Started by SpudGTI  »
    Hi all just wondering if anyone has any quote or know anyone who does the conversion on the mk5 dash to the blue needles and colour display? All it is my red dash in middle is starting to go where the milliage is shown and been watching some you tube videos about the hybrid dash?

    Looks the muts nuts and guessing expensive conversion but defo looks a thing to do

    Cheers all Kris

    What a plank they were, you have to be careful putting the sump back on with how much sealant you  use for that exact reason.

    Glad its sorted :jumpmove:

    Performance Modifications / Re: RamAir Fitted Idle Issues

    Well i had the car in for a smoke test to check for a boost leak. Thankfully there is no boost leak but the N80 valve was stuck open so that has caused the issues i think. Going to replace it tomorrow.

    good stuff hopefully thats the last of it for you bud
