2008 GT Sport TDI 170 DSG
« on: October 03, 2014, 11:04:57 pm »
Having owned my 2003 Mk4 GT TDI 150 for three years I decided to upgrade to the Mk5, I wasn't too bothered about mileage but set a maximum of 130k, I also wanted a high spec model with the must haves being DSG and dual climate... It proved a tedious search but eventually I got lucky and bought this on Monday... 2008 GT Sport TDI 170 DSG (118k full service history) not only in my favourite colour but also high spec'd from the factory: Charleston 18" alloys, black heated leather seats, front armrest, mfsw/highline cluster, cruise, dual zone climate, winter pack.

Mod's so far: VW LED numberplate lights, underseat drawers, black headlining and trims, RCD510, Polo DAB aerial, brushed chrome headlamp switch, Edition 30 rear lights, flat bottom steering wheel, Edition 30 rear valance

Mod's planned: Edition 30 front valance, sideskirts and tailgate spoiler, GTI gloss black B pillar/door trims, Bluetooth, Seat Ibiza DSG paddles, Skoda LED drl/foglight units, Brushed chrome switch set, Edition 30 pedals, GTI or Edition 30 DSG shift knob, R32 front brakes or big brake kit? 312mm rear brakes/VWR rear discs? Mk6 white highline instrument cluster

Nice motor - and as much as I love my black one, I think that's the best colour :-)

Looks a good base to start from. Im sure you will have fun modding it. Have you thought of fitting interior LED's too? Nice cheap mod at around £20, changes the look of the interior. My mod list started off relatively short, but after being on here for a while its grown quite a lot!

Great base to start with! Love the colour, although I chose Reflex Silver (it can camouflage dirt and most scratches better). I wish mine had the same engine. :drinking:

You might consider the Hella xenon look headlights, if the OEM xenon are too expensive atm. They improve a lot the front end. I also wouldn't go for the Dectane LED rear lights. Too much tuning car look. I find the darker ED30's or Valeo's much better.

You can fit with a bit of bricolage the S6 DRL like this:


Or in the upper side of your fog grills, for example.

If you want some ideas about other mods you can do to your interior, you can check my topic.

Cheers

Cheers mate but I think I'm sorted now. Ordered from German Ebay so the long wait begins.
