Ed30 #1521
« on: July 15, 2013, 11:17:20 PM »
Hello all.
Iv been a member since getting my Ed30 in March but have not got round to saying hi and introducing myself.  Iv loved my dubs and have had a few tasty ones.  Iv been lucky enough to own 3 G40's, a Lupo GTi and a Polo GTi 1.8Turbo.  My Polo (2006) was written off by a drunk driver and I kinda lost the love for messing around with cars so went into a company car and had been in them till March this year.  The company I was working for was BMW so they weren't the normal rep mobiles  :grin:  This Ed30 is my first Golf but I knew I'd love it.  Took me a while to find but now Iv got some initial issues sorted worth the wait.  Some of you may recognise the car as it was advertised for sale in this forum.  Anyhow here it is -





It was a fairly standard car when I got it.  The previous owner has installed complete LED interior lights with sidelights and puddle lights and an RNS510.  On the day I picked it up he said "every now and again the alarm goes off for no reason but don't worry about it"  I thought - well I'm sure you can guess - but the car is in such lovely condition I took the risk.......... lots of sleepless nights, countless hours searching the internet and ultimately a chance comment to Eddie-NL (big thank you Eddie!!) got it sorted.  I'm now really loving it and have done a few things to freshen it up a bit.

Its been to Awesome GTi to have a full service and general check over.

First up I fitted Chrome switches





Then some chrome bits for the engine - The oil cap isn't quite right but working on it



Genuine open Fog grills followed



Boot mat and net next



MK6 red stitched steering wheel after that



I have plans to get a bit more power but want to get the car set up to my liking so getting bits together - Alloy goodness.....



TT rack so alloy hubs will be an easier fit (I think)



Lots planned but as with everything its all when funds allow.  Hope you like the car and I'll keep my build updated when I do more bits.  Trying to source Ed30 Mats at the moment.

Cheers     :drinking:

Looks nice, often wish i had waited for a 3dr steel grey, but after nearly 8 months i got fed up of looking and choose condition over spec.

This may help, he has a set of mats available

Lovely looking ED30, but would say that as I'm biased! Looks in great condition  :smiley:
Some nice subtle mods there - the hubs & wishbones should make a great difference. Have the parts lined up for mine too, so will be interested to hear what you think of them.

Thank you  :happy2:
I'm not sure iv got all the right bits yet and won't do it for a while. I plan to do the whole front end in one hit - bushes, diff, arb, brakes and suspension. You'll probably get yours done before mine Dave!
