Volkswagen marked the GTI's 30th anniversary by producing the GTI Edition 30.
On sale in November 2006 from Ã‚Â£22,295 RRP,with a (supposedly) limited production run of only 1500 (Europe models)
(but VW went on to produce an estimated 2400 ??)
The Edition 30 was available in 6 colours;
Tornado Red, Black, Candy White, Reflex Silver (Metallic), Steel Grey (Metallic) and Diamond Black (Pearl).
Check out the your favourite colours in >> The Colours Section << Standard specification
- BYD 169 kW (230 PS) Engine (very close relative of 8P S3 engine), with K04 turbocharger and remote front mounted dump valve
- dependent on the destined market the Edition 30 was available with
UK market = 18" BBS originated 'Pescara' alloy wheels
other = matt black versions of the 18" 'Monza II' alloy wheels.
225/40/18 tyres of various makes fitted as OE
- Half Leather seats (Interlagos/leather) which are heated and have electric lumbar support
- All the lower skirts / bumpers around the ED30 are colour coded
- Smoked Rear Light Lens (common to R32)
- Lots of ED30 badges around the car and red stitching on the seats, mats,handbrake and steering wheelLimited Edition plaques
The cars although supposedly limited did not come with any numbering or plaque from the factory.
After a concerted campaign by 'hotrod' >> Limited ED30 plaques on golfgtiforum <<
, VW relented and agreed to produce them to be retrofitted to cars.
Plaques are sent direct to owners and you fit it yourself.
stealthwolfs tips on getting a plaque
1. Make sure the car is a UK-spec one and not an import (UK only get a plaque)
2. Ring your dealer and ask them to make sure your details are on the VW database.
3. Ring VW UK and ask about the plaque.
4. Wait. Maybe forever...
if you want a spare one then check out the >> extra plaque group buy <<

garethmk1 has created a build list info database for the cars >> garethmk1's ED30 info database <<
please register your car with him so we can build a full record of them. Engine specification
The ED30 engine is a detuned version of the Audi S3 powerplant , the standard output is
Engine power 169kW / 230 PS / 227 bhp @ 5500 rpm
Engine torque 300 NM / 221 lbs/ft
for best performance/economy it should be run on min 98RON fuel in std form (but can be run on 95 RON)
There is some info that some of the FSI (Fuel stratified Injection) functionality was removed from all but the first GTI's.
Check out the engine specifications >> 2.0_TFSI on wiki <<
and >> full tech doc pdf <<
for comparison rototest have rolling road graphs for review
(these are direct driven with wheels removed so equate to an @ the wheels power/torque figure) >> std GTI 2.0 TFSI MY05 << >> std GTI 2.0 TFSI MY06 << >> std GTI Edition 30 2.0 TFSI MY07 << >> std R32 MY06 <<
The ED30 runs lower compression than the std K03 GTI about 0.5 points,therefore you can run more timing advance which equates to about 15hp more up top..compared to the std GTI

another special edition that came after the Edition 30.
Mechanically this car is identical to the Edition 30 and therefore all issues/tweaks/tips and enhancements can be applied the same. *
[* : edit added Dec 09 : there are reports of misfire issues in later remapped K04 cars, this seems to be linked to valve springs and how restrictive your exhaust is!
