MK5 Golf GT 4Motion Sport 2.0 16v Graphite Blue Pearl Effect
« on: March 20, 2018, 10:15:30 PM »
I've been lurking on the forum for a while, as I'm working on a sorting out a 2008 Edition 30 at the moment.. :happy2:

But I would love to know if any other members have any 4motion TDI's? (Hopefully the mod's will be OK with this post?)

Basically it's a combination of a TDI, GTI and R32 all rolled into one?
What's not to like having a R32 60 litre fuel tank and TDI 55mpg = 660 mile tank range? And improved cornering with less understeer due to the 4motion drive train.

So, below is my 2006 *3* door GT 4motion TDI 2.0 16v BKD, registered as sport 4motion, and as far as I know one of only two in this colour & spec with three doors in the UK.

Blue Graphic Pearl effect with factory leather and over 4k worth of factory fitted options.














I also got a NOS set of 17" Indianapolis wheels for Summer and Imola's with full snow tyres for Winter.

Agreed. Xenon would have been nice. Apart from that, I don't think there was anything else that wasn't ticked on the options list!  :happy2:

I've upgraded to 310mm GTI front brakes nd rears are now Audi Quattro items. Plenty of stopping power with Brembo disks/pads.

Sooo tempted to install a Darkside development kit.. :laugh:

The blue is Graphite Blue Pearl rather than Shadow. I'll see if I've got some more images to show off the pearl effect when in the sunshine.  :smiley:

I know there are a few 5 doors model with cloth interior for sale, but not any 06 plated 3 doors, and especially any three doors with factory leather as standard  :happy2:

Thanks!  :happy2:

It replaced my old 2.0 16v GTI, and this drives so much better and actually feels quicker with the amount of torque available.

I've bought a used engine from 2008 that didn't had to much milage in it, I've pulled everything apart anyway though. Better be safe than sorry when you'll make the engine perform more than 100% of what standard specs are :)

I'm running :
Darkside Developments hardpipe kit
Darkside Developments TIP kit
Darkside Developments S3 intercooler
Darkside Developments turbo kit with downpipe
Darkside Developments AEM airfilter kit
4bar MAP sensor
Firad nozzles

All my engine parts has been vapour or soda blasted, new seals, new filters, new screws/nuts/bolts, new piston rings, new tandem pump, new water pump, Forge motorsport coolant hoses, new fuel hoses, new cambelt kit and all that  :party: :party:

Really looking forward to this engine is installed to the car and mapped :D


Maybe I should look into converting it to a 4motion if it's possible to find the parts to a reasonable price somehwere when I'm doing the DSG convertion to next winter hehe

Nice bit of kit and get idea with the soda blasting. I'd like to get some parts soda blasted, but can't find anything local to me at the moment, so have been soaking parts in Cillit Bang! This will strip surface rust from anything and help to get a factory clean look if soaked long enough lol.

Looks like you need to find a R32 running gear and bolt on. Should be a a straight forward retro fit, except for changing the boot floor.  :happy2:

Not sure if it take rust, but if you come by some called "nitromors" I would grab a it and test if this will do the job, this product will remove even epoxy  - But remember to use it with plenty of fresh air recirc or els  :rolleye: :rolleye:

Hi @Lhasa

There are a few TDI 4Motion owners on her, @ady-uk has done plenty of mods to his, look up his posts. I have a Black 06 Sport 4Motion, with factory Xenons, Dual Zone Climatronic and Sunroof. I spent more than 2 years for the right spec to come along and have added R32 leather interior, MK6 FBSW with controls, RNS510 and other small changes.

I've got 340mm Mk7 Golf R front brakes to put on in the next couple of weeks (already put 310mm on the back) and then I'm ready to fit the Narco Tuning hybrid turbo, DS hard pipe kit, S3 large intake intercooler and Sachs Racing Clutch. It should give about 230bhp, but will be factory downpipe, so no issues with MOTs in the future, as they appear to be getting more and more strict and I can't be a**ed with swapping a decat out every year. I did consider the Darkside GTB2260 kit, but the cost for that really starts to build if you want the 300bhp it can give with supporting mods.

I look forward to seeing what you do to yours, keep an eye out for front wing, front seal and rear tailgate rust (around the badge). I'm replacing my tailgate as mine is quite unsightly now.

Cheers
