Matts Mk5 gti Nurburgring /daily /track car
« on: April 12, 2019, 06:16:11 AM »
OK I've had a few gtis now but this is the best by far!!! Some may have seen my old Megane Rs250 but that made way to free up some cash for house stuff (boring I know) however for the money I wanted to spend no car for me cones close to a mk5 gti. This particular car I've known for many years as its been my pals for the last 10 years or so but with him needing a bigger car and it only covering 25 miles per week for the last couple of years he's allowed me to buy it and continue it's journey.

Rough spec

K04 stage2 + (believe this was the 1st k04 converted car mapped by rtec)
TTRS brakes
Genuine BBS CH 18x8.5 et35
Mk6 wheel
Mk6 climate control
Bilstien B14s
RNS
Retro fitted xenons
R32 rear with BCS exhaust
Plus a lot more

 I thought as soon as I saw the username. “Red megane RS250”

I presume that car was owned by someone on here?

I think a good option for these is using a stick on number plate on a smoothed front where the plinth usually goes.
