Irish mk5
« on: April 06, 2021, 08:10:38 pm »
Hi all

First post here- just an intro to my mk5.

It’s actually quite a rare spec. It’s a single owner 2009 model that was imported all the way from Australia to Ireland! All original parts, black leather interior, 6 disc cd changer, oem bottle opener, heated seats, air con. Even has an untouched oem first aid kit!

I picked up some little gti seat handle inserts and also invested in these genuine OZ alloys with Asymetric 5 tyres :)
I have some plans for more mods but next up will hopefully be a revo stage 1 map with before and after dyno runs. It could also use a detail to freshen up the paint.

I’m sure I forgot stuff there but let me know what you think!

Edit: I remember now where the rest of my money went:
Timing belt done, cam follower done, thermostat done, new battery, new Ariel, heko wind deflectors.
It’s also low mileage, bought at just 120,000km!!

G'day mate!

Car looks in good nick, and good to hear of the work you've done. Only thing you didn't mention is dsg service, is it up to date?

I don't usually like aftermarket alloys on the mk5 but they really do look good  :happy2:

Keep the thread updated with any mods you do will be interested to read about it.

Very nice. The leather looks pretty clean for 11 years old 👍

That looks great on the OZ wheels mate. Car looks to be a very tidy example, great find.

Good question about the DSG service. I’ll need to double check that one and get it done!

Almost forgot to show this prized possession  :signLOL:



Another picture for the groupies:




I’m also looking for opinions on window tint.
What do people think on doing the back 3?
It can look good, but it can also give it a van-like look I feel!?

Boring update:
Removed my bonnet liner today. It was dirty and annoying me and I much prefer the bare metal look.
Kept it temporarily incase noise becomes an issue but it seems fine!
