Due to some personal issues, the car will be up for sale soon. The air ride has to go first though

This is just a head up for anyone interested, or knows someone who will be, that i will have a full air ride set up for a mk5 golf gti for sale soonish. I'll get a for sale thread and some pictures when the actual stuff is off the car.

I know back in 2014 i said i was selling the Gti, well it didn't happen. In fact, i've actually still got it. However, I will be looking to sell it now as i have bought a new car  :driver:

Last sunday, I took the long trip up to Scotland to see howie1987 and his Ed30.
This car has a rich history and has been been owned by a few members now: howie1987, ed30sam123, cuprajake, N8KOW, kevinm

First thing I think is to swap out the old ipod armrest dock for the MDI armrest kit.
I'll be looking for the unit on eBay, and I'll get the plug&play wiring harness from Kufatec. This should allow me to use my iphone with the RNS510 / MFSW.

Order my MDI unit from eBay, and the plug & play wiring loom from Kufatec :happy2:

Slightly worried about retro fitting the MDI as I have the RSN510 and the Mk6 reversing camera, not sure what to expect when i remove the unit from the car.

Welcome to the club! :happy2:
You should get a build thread up.

I always planned to go Stage 1 on the Gti but never got round to doing it. I've just bought myself a stage 2+ red Edition 30, so the black golf will be sold eventually.
