Pescara's painted to order
Last Poster: trackep in Mk5 General Area on Today at 10:24:10 AM
Hi, sorry if this isn't the right section. I have a set of ed30 Pescara's i'm going to be selling with brand new centre caps and nut covers. I'm a painter myself so i was going to refurb them before selling, but then i had a thought if anyone would be interested in them and i could paint them to a colour they wanted? Cheers Adam

Apologies, not on topic - When did you get the turbo off BBT? - I understood they had stopped their K03 production
I bought the BBT360 hybrid last year. But it's still available to buy from Beach Buggy Turbos in Germany. Turbo Technics do their own Ko3 hybrid which my mate has got on his A

Great to be back and hope all is well @Pudding you gave me some great advice so thank you!
Of course, I didn't defect! I'm riding this thing out until I get the clean mk5 DSG gti modded car that I've wanted since I was 13!
I did, however, buy a 91 classic honda civic ef with 70k miles. I don't

Quick update:

Presented it for the re-test today with V Power diesel and three days of REALLY hard driving, it passed at 0.93.

I had some Wynns Formula Gold Diesel on standby but it didn’t need it in the end.  I’m going to have to change the thermostat, with normal driving it got to 70 degrees within a few minutes but even on the motorway I struggled to get i

Can't be done with Direct injection engines.  Too long and boring to explain why.  Granny it instead if mpg is a massive concern!

Re: What did you and your MKV do today?

Busy Friday Blaupunkt head unit and dab+ module arrived
                  tightened a couple of bolts underneath :grin: needing doing for a couple of weeks
                  rubbed down lower front wing and painted.  New wing later on in the year, perhaps

Re: Waste gate rattle resolved?
Last Poster: Pudding in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 05:26:36 PM
What year Octavia?  I though the rattle clip was only available for the early EA888 engines?  I've not seen a rattle clip for the K03/K04 on the EA113.  I could be wrong though!

Re: Oil usage
Last Poster: Pudding in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 05:22:42 PM
I find mine used as much as my right foot dictates. If I cruise everywhere or cruise on the motorway it uses (next to) nothing. If I kick its head in then it drinks the stuff

If its not smoking and its not leaking then its fine  :signLOL:

Which side of the engine is it coming from? Passenger side could be chain.

Its not coming from any one side in particular, evenly along the engine block....if that makes sense??

If you can READ, and save both dumps from the immobilizer, then I could load it into AVDI (which I'll get in hand in a few days).  At that point, I can tell you both pins.

I'm about to retrofit a MK6 GTI Highline clock on my MK5 GTI.
Are you saying that the PolarFIS would also be slow for updating for me as well?

    2005 54 reg golf gti in Graphite blue. Full service History.
    Excellent condition. I have had it for over two years and it has never let me down.
    I bought it with 113k Miles and it has now down 141k faultless miles.
    Masses of work done to get it mechanically right.
    Including in the last few years lots of wear and tear items.:
    Full services with millers oil.
    Cam follower twice - done again recently at R Tech.
    PCV valve.
    Cam chain and tensioner
    2 x water pump
    Boost pipe, boost seal
    Discs and pads front and back.
    4 Uniroyal rainsport tyres with plenty of tread.
    Charcoal filter.

    I have spent a lot to get all wear and tear items replaced to get it driving perfectly.
    A couple of minor items. It has a small dent in the rear wheel arch and a couple of the 18 inch alloys are scuffed.
    It had an R Tech stage 1 done in August and now shows 241bhp. They did a health check and said it was one of the best AXX engines they had seen.
    Drives brilliantly and the remap is fantastic.
    I have started a new job which requires long distance travelling therefore my golf is not suitable. I will definately miss it.
    Someone will get a brilliant car for the money. You will not be disappointed.
    Owned and driven by an enthusiast.

        Plus all other spec. usually found on the GTI such as electric windows, mirrors, darker tinted windows, 8 speaker system etc.
        FVWSH.  Changed from VW’s Long Life service (20k) to Interval service (every 10k)
        Above includes DSG gearbox oil change before recommended schedule stated to be at 40k. Brake fluid changed 2 yearly intervals.
        Brembo discs and pads all round approx 3 years ago.
        Both original keys
        MOT until october 2020

        Professionally fitted Milltek full turbo back exhaust with 200cell sports Cat. (£1300+ RRP). Stage II Revo remap with all dyno setup/checks carried out after flashing of software.
        Eibach sport springs

        VW rubber/winter mats and standard mats
        Sub frame bolt upgrade with OEM VW parts (was a problem in the mk5 particularly)

        Great car as you would expect. Always run on Shell V-power except the odd emergency, with receipts dating years back. Replaced coil packs with red top OEM items as a matter of course at approximately 31k along with genuine VW spark plugs. Again many receipts kept to back this up, no corners cut on cheap parts.
        Interior condition in very good condition with the drivers side seat free of scuffs and rips. Rear seats very rarely used if at all.
        Turbo always left to run down before turning ignition off.
        I try hard to look after all my cars and hopefully this reflects in the standard of this GTI.

        Points to note to be completely transparent as an enthusiast; Some scuffing to an alloy and some expected stonechips which have been touched up.

        Any questions/offers feel free to ask. zeroseven 8583nine 1519
