Keano's Edition 30- Update time ;)
« on: November 04, 2010, 06:09:52 PM »
 Thought it was about time I made a members ride thread, to log my painfully slow progress  :grin:

Bought the car standard, 36k DSG - Only extras being the winter pack, high line, and multi function steering wheel











The only extras i have done now is a Stage 1 remap with the guys from tuneside

A pipercross filter

A parrot 3100 LCD kit

Some open air fog grills

And some light rear tints 50% to resemble the optional extra privacy glass.


I've recently had the 40k service at Statllers of Sheffield ( who i can't rate enough  :happy2: :happy2:)
and the car ran 300bhp on their rollers tonight, so I'm over the moon (graphs will be added soon, but here is a shakey vid  :grin:)

Very nice but why's that guy having a wee in your car?

The GTI isn't just a machine. It's very much a living, breathing thing.

Hello Buddy!

Long time no speak/see! I'm surprised you haven't done a car thread yet. Your car looks insane at the moment.

And with regards to VAGCO, I've recently discovered Statllers in Sheffield, both the guys have Edition 30s moddified to the knackers and are exteremly good at what they do.

I'd honestly give them a quick visit too, you will be surprised how much there is to know about these cars!

We need to have a meeting soon too!  :happy2:

Are you around Hinkley (saying you got it mapped at tuneside) i saw a red ed30 a month or so ago in hinkley on my way to see chris at tuneside. I was in a Candy white 3dr ed30.

On another note the red GTIs have grown on me a bit and yours is a stunning example!

Thanks Cal. I live in sheffield/doncaster, abit further up north I'm afraid. I haven't been to see Chris since August either, which is a shame.

Have you got your candy remapped then? Sounds lovley  :party:

Some pictures after having the Eibach Sportlines fitted  :pomppomp:

The ride is verrrrry much improved, and not as crashy as others make out.
