Edition 30 - Black - Manual - No.1994
« on: September 03, 2019, 09:10:38 PM »
So after having a mk5 gti when I was 19, I have rejoined after buying my first ed30 from @absolute 

Car really is a pleasure to drive and a credit to previous owners.

Anyway heres a picture after the first proper clean I gave her. Im actually really impressed with the paint, not a dint anywhere on the car, few expected stone chips etc but I think this is the first car I have ever owned without a single dent  :drinking:

Here is a picture of her at Field of Dreams aircooled festival at the weekend after a 6 hour polish and detail.

Wasted no time with a few little things, needed a new bolt for the drivers side bumper to line the arch up properly, unfortunately I made the mistake of messing with the indicators in the depo headlights which was a bad move (ended up blowing one) so ordered a few h21 bulbs too. Also transferred my reg over and ordered a 5 digit short plate for the front as well as a us spec smooth grill to keep things tidy, on the rear I went for a slightly shorter plate but not quite as short as the front, unsure how I feel about the look of this as the rear of this car has a clear recess for a full size plate! let me know what you think.

also booked into the trimmers friday for new bolster leather!

It's pictures like this that make me regret selling it! Wow, what a job you've done on that, looks fantastic.

Really looking forward to seeing this evolve.

Always loved black GTI’s almost got one then I remembered how much I hate cleaning cars!

It’s always been a pet peeve when plates don’t fit the size of the recess always looks like they have shrunk in the wash!

Any future plans?

It’s crying out for some open fog grills

Few bits came today, got the smooth grill on and new front plate! Really like how it looks and seems to tidy the front end up nicely. Didnt feel like putting the gti badge back on as I quite like it looking plain with just the red trim. Also managed to scratch the new grill with the old grill, who knows how but very annoying also got open fog grills put on and overall very happy with the front end.
