Thats a good point... i suppose with the colour match you can notice that straight away and send them back if needed (although complete pain in the ass appreciated!).... but yeah once/if rust comes through you are way out of your warranty period..

Last Poster: dubburke in Mk5 General Area on Today at 06:36:39 AM

Hi. I’m looking for the above. Ideally with factory xenons. Latest RNS510 or similar would be good. Don’t mind mods but would prefer stock. Tidy Bodywork and stock monzas would be great. No over priced cars. Thanks

I would suggest putting the exterior back to stock as few things are as subjective and polarising opinion as these sort of mods. An enthusiast may pay a bit extra for the engine spec as it saves them from having to do the work. Best list it on the Facebook tfsi for sale site but be realistic about value

Just finished this!! Thanks so much for the guide, it was invaluable in getting the job done and saved a tonne of money!!  :happy2:

Wasn't without its issues though... First thing that went wrong was when manouvering the coolant lines... a nipple on one of the plastic flanges broke off showering me and the engine bay in coolant!

Almost a year since I last wrote anything over here... And I can't believe the car is almost 13 years old! And I think I like it more than day one.
Over the past year, I've been trying to find ways to keep enjoying the car. As you may have read above, the engine is the only major thing that needs attention - and badly.
I tried to have a 2.0 K04 engine swap but, after I th

Not much has been happening with the Ed30 lately.
The RNS 510 unit died on me a month or so ago, and just went to a black screen. Swapped this out to the RCD330 so i could use CarPlay. Few little annoyances, but all in all, it's a good unit.

The only other update is that i picked up the Golf's replacement yesterday :evilgrin:

Cutting them will leave bare metal and they will be more prone to rusting.

I have for sale a Genuine vw Golf R32 front bumper complete with all grills , badges and washer jets .

The bumper had two small plastic welds please see the pictures and the n/s bracket was loose so this has been re attached . The repair was very minor and completed by a local body shop . The bumper has been put in primer ready to prep and paint .

Rare opportunity to get hold of a complete bumper .

There is a small bit missing from the side grill n/s can’t really see it as well as the back cover apart from that it’s good to go bought for a conversion but then a change of mind .

I would rather you come and collect this in person then there is less chance of this delicate grill getting damaged but will wrap the bumper if you want it posted will cost you around £45 again I take no responsibility if it gets damaged in transit any questions please ask there is no returns of this item I have been clear and honest as possible you are buying a used bumper which has had three repairs in total all minor but completed to a high standards any more pictures or questions welcome thanks .
