Welcome  :happy2:

300bhp from an Ed30 is a case of £350! lol

So do that first, if its enough then just focus on the stance  :happy2:

I'm new to performance modifications over styling tbh, what does getting to 300 even involve haha!




By the replies I'm gonna see how much power I can get out of it without spending all my pocket money :P
And a good set of coilovers too, for that "sensible" drop everybody's suggested! I quite like the wheels originally on the ed30... They'll be okay to stick with, won't they?

Tah guys  :love:

Literally just a remap for 300bhp. Full exhaust and intake for 330bhp. Fuel pump, inter cooler and possibly clutch for 360bhp. At this point you will want to consider brakes and other handling upgrades too.

Get some KW H&R or Bilstein coilovers, they drop enough and ride great. If you like the standard wheels then by all means keep them!

I had been looking at KW's but most likely be Bilstein's due to the friendlier pricing haha  :P

I've also noticed some lacquer peel on the roof, where the windscreen meets it... This sort of thing isn't coverable by any kind of warranty is it? The car's never had any sort of respray and has FVWSH.. Just a little bit annoying to see such an imperfection on an otherwise clean car  :sick:

Has it have its windscreen replaced before? Might have happened then in some way?

I did think this, but I can't tell! There are no receipts or anything for a new windscreen and it has a few service stickers in the corner  :confused:

If its still the genuine VW windscreen it should have a VW logo etched into the glass on the lower passenger side. In saying that it may have had a genuine windscreen at the time of replacement also. But if its not got a VW logo it may give you an idea.

I'd say it may have had its windscreen replaced, and when removing the glass or bonding material, they have marked / cut into the metal a little. This may have caused it to rust over time or as your say start the lacquer to peel back.

I'll have to just get it sorted then haha! It's quite annoying as it's the only mark on the car I've noticed so far  :sad1:

Power!!!!!

Sorry but slammed is just wrong when you have a beast of a turbo under the bonnet..

your be the fastest thing on the road , and almost have the smuggist grin when something twice the money gets left behind  :laugh:

 :happy2:

Not everyone likes power builds though.  You can always have both
 Although now I've gotten sick of "the scene" so much prefer a car to drive.

Older means richer! Pay rises, cheaper insurance etc  :grin:



Today I bought some carbon fibre extensions for my flappy paddles.. Alongside a years insurance and paid my tax also  :confused:

Most expensive Halloween ever, Golf will be on the road tomorrow though  :drool:

You might want to look at Still Static, you can get seriously low drops but still have the handling you need for added power.

Your question shouldn't be "which should I do, power or prowess" but more "which should I do first?".

A bit of patience, part hunting and being prepared to pick up a spanner to crack the simpler jobs yourself will result in a more modified car than your budget first allows.

I really love your original Up!, it looked amazing.
