Think my next car will be a Mk6 so I'm keen to see what mods work/transfer over.  :popcornsoda:

Most cosmetic mods would swap over. Depending on the engine you choose would depend what would swap over - the ED35 uses the same engine and so most parts would swap over as would most of the suspension parts (not coilovers though)

Car looks ace. Any particular wheels in mind for going 18"? 1.3s?

Car & plans look great. Deffo needs an exhaust asap though - standard really does look small.

It's good to see you return to a TFSI and I look forward to watching the progression on this  :happy2:

Not really looked in detail yet, but I'm tempted by N!ck's forged 18's in the for sale section!

Older car now and I've heard of too many V6's dying or going wrong constantly off a turbo conversion. Lovely when they are made right though.  :smiley:
