A little update..

fitted some Valeo's....



with inners modded..just need to code the centres out of the outers and were good to go..



And a cheeky side shot, sporting her genuine open fog grilles, smoked sequential mirror indicators in full carbon mirror caps



Its been an expensive start to the year for her, I hardly drive it and after the remap the DMF gave up so a Helix kit has been fitted and then the thermostat wasn't doing its job, so both senders and the stat replaced and all is good in the world. fingers crossed!

I removed the gearbox Superpro insert, as the trade off in comfort outweighed the improvement IMHO.

Next up is probably going to be suspension, oh and I'm on the look out for some under seat draws if anybody has some?

Good buy mate. Still miss my Pirelli.

210KW ATW is possible with fuel pump and downpipe.

Mine had 186KW ATW with just an APR tune and APR Intake.

Managed to source some under seat draws, they maybe small but they come in very handy for the wallet, phone and Oakley's as I find storage a little short in the Golf..






A nice easy mod to install, although prices have gone up from the dealer, all in it came to around £180, so eBay search commenced and saved myself a good deal of money.
Just used the dealer for rivets and the brackets.
