Initial Post............

The car is obviously Steel Grey
5 door
DSG
has 5.5k miles on the clock.
1 previous owner from new who chopped it in as his wife was expecting/just had twins.

The car has Satnav, phone prep, Dynaudio speaker upgrade, front and rear parking sensors (for the missis!  :laugh: ) leather and even a rare option of a sunroof. I know this car is never going to be the lightest car, so an extra kg or two for a sunroof ain't going to matter too much. 19" talladega alloys (will get chopped for some 18's). The only extra's I would have liked was the ACC and cruise, but the former can be fixed with Bilstein's and the latter is an easy fix.  8)

I've already ordered a few bits.....

Airtec Intercooler on the current group buy on this forum.
New OEM hpfp and Autotech internals

The plan is to upgrade the car step by step until eventually i will have the new Loba L04XX turbo and supporting mods. My local tuner (Statllers) currently have a development one on their Edition 30 DSG and it is running 450+ bhp. I will be happy with a real 400bhp.


Here are a few pics from the dealer.

Looking forward to the developments on this! Good to see some tasty mk6s coming through.

Cheers,

Yes, the WMI will be taken out of my Polo GTI, converted to a 4 point direct port injection system and fitted to the .:R I reckon I may need a bigger bottle though! :laugh:

It's a good target.......for starters :evilgrin:

I really want this car to be a do it all car, so I don't want to spoil it in any way as a daily, but at the same time improve performance and "subjectively" improve looks.  :smiley:

Don't forget to change your forum sig, John  :happy2:

Don't be disappointed about having a sunroof - Tipping up the back is great for ventilation and exhaust sound, as is running with a back seat down except when needed. If the weight really bothered you you could always replace it with a fixed plexiglass(?) or tinted perspex panel.

Cheers Robin.

The sunroof will stay as it is. I like them if the car comes with one, but personally wouldn't have added it to my options list if I'd bought one new.

 I can regard it as an extra emergency escape hatch :signLOL:
