StuF presents Candy White 3 Door GTI
« on: October 18, 2014, 04:18:17 PM »
Hi fellas - carrying on really from my re-introduction thread I thought I would start a build/info thread in the correct place!

Car details -

Candy White
3 Door
1 owner (+ex demo)
08 Plate
FSH including all receipts and old mot/tax disks
Xenon Lights inc Winter Pack (Heated Washer Jets/Lamp washers)
Convenience Pack - Auto Lights/Wipers/Coming Home Lights etc
Very Rare Unmarked Heated Leather Recaro GTI badged Wingback seats
18'' Monza II wheels with 4xGoodyear Eagle F1 Tyres
RCD 500 MP3 6 CD Headunit
Factory Cruise control
Full Highline Multifunction Computer
Flat Bottomed MFSW inc Phone Prep
Aircon In Glovebox
Six Speed Manual
Never been tracked, modded, crashed or abused
No mot advisories or issues, still on og exhaust, clutch, flywheel, suspension etc
Pulls strong and clean - no rattles or bangs
Every receipt

Now here is the kicker - rolling around on 167k!  :scared:
Although to compensate the car only cost me £3750 :happy2:

Since buying I have done the following

Pressed plates - old ones were a little worn and damaged
GTI / AMD Plate surrounds
GTI Seat Inserts
Carbon Effect Wrapped Dash
RNS510 Version R LED SSD  inc V12 2015 Maps + Speed Camera POI's
Bluetooth hands-free and iPhone music streaming through Dension Pro BT unit
LED number plate lights
Full LED conversion of all interior lights
LED Sidelights
Upgraded Xenon Osram D2S 66240XNB Night Breaker Bulbs
Upgraded Philips Xtreme Vision PLUS 130% Extra Light
Wheels - Monza 2's got Plasti Coated in Matte Black
Newsouth Performance Boost Gauge (BAR)
Sharan roof Ariel
R32/ED30 Effect (Tinted) Rear Lights
Carbon Fibre Front VW Badge
US Spec smooth front Grille - Number plate on magnets
Wind deflectors
3 Door Clip on Interior sun blinds - rather than tints
RamAir Induction Kit
Forge DV Spacer
Replaced PCV Valve (May15)
MK6 Headlamp switch
SS Tipped Switches - All now done
SS Ashtray with 12v power installed
Leather Armrest
Votex Golfball Gear Knob
Updated MK6 sliding cup holder
Alloy GTI footrest
Forge Short Shift Kit
Cambelt / Waterpump replaced at 167700 miles (Nov 14)
Major Service Completed at 167700 miles (Nov 14)
Eibach Sportline Spring Kit
Black front GTI grille badge
CF Rear GTI Badge
CF Wrapped B-Pillars
Dark Cherry Hazard Light
Climate Control Bling Rings!

Will probably need a new clutch and DMF soon as well so trying to budget for that - although no slippage or issues so far!

Future plans include the following (in no particular order)

Full TBE (inc 200cell cat) - almost certainly a Powervalve BCS unit after previous poor Milly experience
HPFP - LOBA is my preferred model
AMD Revision+ DV
REMAP - not sure who by though, maybe REVO
I fancy a set of 18'' ROTA Grids
A little paintwork - stonechips need sorting and maybe a bit of colour coding!

Some pics of how the motor is looking today













As things get added/changed/removed I will keep this thread updated! So far so good - its awesome to be back driving a GTI again!

Still amazed how much you got this for esp. with those mint seats.

For me, my first jobs would include:

Interior Chrome Pack / Dark Hazard.
Leather Arm Rest
Colour code the rear valence and side skirts
R32 Clusters

All on the cards it would seem :party:

Do you have any links to the Chrome Pack/Dark Hazard?
Arm rest would be lovely too!
Colour code and R32 clusters in the pipeline!

Seats were a factory fitted option - think they were a £2500 option! And you are right - they look brand new!

Here is a couple of pics of my old GTI!
Wonder if it is still knocking about!

Got my Chrome pack from China eBay, all VW part numbers, coupled with the A/C dial surrounds and Dark Hazard it sets off the interior nicely.

Chrome Pack
They aren't expensive either: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Set-of-5pics-CHROME-SWITCH-CONTROL-fit-for-VW-PASSAT-B6-CC-GOLF-JETTA-MK5-MK6-/201114948199?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2ed3629267
You'd need the 3 door version though.

Hazard
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OEM-Dark-Red-HAZARD-SWITCH-FOR-VW-Volkswagen-Golf-Jetta-MK5-Sagitar-18G953509-/201142852135?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2ed50c5a27

Think they do the A/C surrounds too... infact they do a lot of cool Mk5 stuff, like the RCD510, Gateways, looms etc.

Great purchase  :happy2: obviously well looked after.

Why why why did you fit a Forge DV spacer though?  :confused: sounds chavvy and leaks boost. . .

Yep - you are correct but although it pains me to admit it, when combined with the twintake and a decent exhaust note it just makes me smile! I am not there yet!
I know its a bit much but even though i am 36 it makes me chuckle to hear the tish of the spacer.
Not to everyones taste but hey I like it

Those seats fetch nearly 2/3 of the price you paid for the whole car! Plus those Xenons, MFSW and high line clock, you could sell those and be in profit. What a find! :happy2:

Moving over to Flickr, sorry for the broken picture links!

Looks awesome for the money! Where did you find it for sale, was it through the trade?
