Cheers guys. Coastline is walkworth Northumberland.
So…
2008, 3dr gti, 94k miles, 6 speed manual, 2 owners, fsh (dealership), heated leathers, sun roof, auto lights, auto wipers, auto dimming rear view, cruise controls, dis, mfs, air con, dual zone climate controls, boot lighting, footwell lighting, boot ciggy plug, I believe it has the speaker upgrade. 17” monzas
The mods I have done so far…
Gravity cat back exhaust 2.5” stainless, GFB diverter valve, pipercross pannel filter, daft stainless gti inserts on seat levers and foot rear, wind deflectors, depo projector lights, K&n oil filter, heat taped air box, led side lights, auto boot open off key, usdms (as well as a few other vagcom mods, “stage 1” remap

I’m hoping getting some r32 rear lights for it today. And I’m also planning on getting the whiteline grip series 1 package, which is 25mm drop springs front and rear arb, all bushing and drop links. Also considering a s3 intercooler upgrade as I find with the standard air box it holds quite a lot of heat in. I have a passenger side power folding mirror to go on as well once I find driver side and a set of moduals. I’ll try keep the post updated with future mods as much as possible

It may be average to you, but a lot of them are below average in condition now, so yours is in fact above average  :happy2:

Looks a tidy example and it’s pretty much top of the range...!

Got any pics of the exhaust? Wondered how yours sits vs mine.

I couldn't fault the exhaust its just the reducer that's a bit iffy for me, as I still have standard cat.
