The first update on this car ......my first job was to remove the old rear lights as these were to far gone in my eyes and i already had a set from a previous car which were vertically brand new gave them a clean with some meguiars plast rx . Also i had some led indicator bulbs from the previous car so fitted them along with that i did the fog light clear lens mod to finish the job.

Awesome mate!

How did you change the Ariel antenna to the shark fin? As I’m thinking of doing that too and would I need to buy a GPS harness to connect it with my rns 510?

Thanks

Many Thanks ...as for the Ariel antenna it’s pretty easy

Open the boot
Remove the centre roof trim just pull down on clips
Undo X2 10mm nuts each side of where the trim was to give you more access space
Gentle pull the roof lining down
Locate the Ariel base and remove the 22mm nut
Disconnect the wiring for the Ariel

If you are fitting a sharks fin everything in reverse as for the gps harness if you have not got one you will need one for the navigation to work, mine in a simple radio only,

Hope this helps ,,

Looks fantastic!

I'm going to be following this thread carefully!

I have a blue Mark 5 GTI but am thinking of getting Oryx or pearl White wrap - working out to be about 1300e plus VAT. We will see.

Can I ask for a steer on where you got the shark fin part please?

Thanks in advance.

Hi ..I’ve had a few in different colours but candy white has always been my favourite I must admit.

As for your question regarding the sharks fin ..mine was from eBay a Genuine vw sharks fin lots on eBay anything from a golf 5/6/ or sirocco will fit perfect .

Hope this helps

Thanks.

Another small update ...ive managed to get a few bits done even though i have not washed  the car since i brought it ...anyway maybe a job for tomorrow as its crying out for it..

so this happened today i decided to fit the Audi A4 Exhaust trims as a temporary measure for now to cover up the stock rusty tailpipes until i get new exhaust system.

Also Replaced the missing gti badge on the tailgate ...................................................................................................



Also purchased a genuine luggage net for the boot which looks nice and also started replacing the window switches and light switch for the more attractive mk6 items still need to do the fuel switch and the passenger window and last but not least i replaced the key fob body for a new one as it did need it.

Hi Deano, car's looking great! You've done a fair amount in such a short time, it's a good read!

I bought a second GTI and its tailpipes are literally cracking with the rust, so I would want to pick up some of those tailpipes to slot over. Do you have a link? Coudn't find ones on eBay that look exactly like yours.

Also, the front grill, did you go to VW or get one off eBay?

Thanks!

Hi ... Thanks for the kind words ... still a lot do anyway the grill came from eBay a very good copy and some great reviews that’s why I went for it .

As for the the tail pipe trims I did not find any I linked on eBay so brought these from amazon and came delivered super quick

Hope this helps

Thanks...
