i think it would be a worthwhile mod doing, it cleans up the rear end but you dont have to worry about installing 'pop locks' and them going wrong and not being able to get your boot open lol

Was up at the VW garage having a moan about my Jap spec rear bumper not being here yet!! Thats the last thing to get done to the rear  :rolleyes: lol

Got my stubby aerial today, so thats on already lol
Still giving these stubby mirrors abit stick and the blanks for the handles.

N75j valve...... what is the scoop?
Since having the car re-mapped.... it goes like stink but its like it pulls well up to 1800 rpms, then the lag kicks in and it's like it's struggling to keep up the power and then it hits 3500 rpms and it's like a jet taking off!
Is that normal? I've never had a car remapped before and the lag was nothing like this before remap. Heard lots of different things about the n75j valve so was hoping it would sort this lag problem out??

Title: Re: Mk4 GTi 1.8 20vT
Post by: Sas on 19 April 2009, 20:10
And finally after a good clean today.  Stevie got the stubby mirrors, door blanks and the stubby aerial fitted aswell.  :D  After alot of sweary words at the driver doors.

And now for the arty finished pics,   :thumbs:

It was £136.92 plus VAT and waited about 5 weeks.

It goes into paint a week on friday as the painter is having some holibobs. God knows who he thinks he is having holidays when I've got this bumper sitting here needing painted!!!!!  :grin: :grin: :grin: It'll be worth the wait tho

Think should be the last of the "body mods" untill I decide on handles  :grin:

Very nice car mate, love the smoothed look you have going on without loosing the rub strip's which IMO ruins the look of the golf, and makes it very impractical and prone to crack and look sh!te  :cool:

Wouldn't mind a vortex front on mine but my wallet doesn't agree with me for some reason  :sad:

Am I the only one who thinks it looks like a roller skate though  :laugh:


Must be, that extra inch must make a whole lot of difference since EVERYONE is doing 18's. :rolleyes:


Its not just the size of the alloys the fact that are flat faced what does it I think.

Still looks nice though

ebay.de get's more of them, but given the weak £ against the € you'll be paying much more than last year.

so do you have to use a different key or does it still work using your same key fob sorry to be a bit nosey but how much did the bodyshop charge to do the work cos i was thinking of having my boot completly smoothed but have been told the popper things can be a bit unreliable and just wanted to get a rough price to go by.
Title: Re: Mk4 GTi 1.8 20vT - New interior + More body work
Post by: Sas on 08 May 2009, 14:48
erm, the mk5 rear handle is just a handle, there are no keys. it works off the central locking, had to get an auto sparky to wire it up. depending on your guy allow 100 bucks for it
managed to win the tailgate on ebay for 13 quid, body work wise it was take old handle out, weld a plate in and then cut the whole handle out the mk5 tailgate and graft it on to the nk4 tailgate. alot of work. i was quoted 350 but got svag club discount so 300.

It wasnt meant to happen tbh - it was just meant to be a good looking daily driver... and then i put it in to have the stonechips removed from the bonnet and bumper.... and i thought the rest of the body work was fine... it just kind of snowballed,  I wish I had just stuck it in for a full hit - but at the time i didnt think it needed it!

 once the front had been done, then i got the handle done - and the rear bumper arrived after the tailgate had been done......

 so front and rear looking totally mint the sides looked abit scabby - just to mke like, everyone else thought they were fine.   :lol:

Now its at this point that I must say... I've been stringing you guys along with these wheels! I've had these for a couple of weeks now and managed to keep shhh about it! I was gutted about the keskins but I saw them on another Jazz blue when we were down and it made me feel better that they didnt work out!! :lol:

Couple of changes since the weekend, I'm now tintless - going for a "cleaner" looks and got the ko4 001 turbo to get on there.

Few changes planned over the winterm quite major if i'm honest so watch this space

thanks guys

Should've introduced yourself!! We didnt stay long as I had some bad news so had to head back up to scotland asap.

The tailgate is defo the real deal, working mk5 handle/badge -wasnt cheap, I bought the whole mk5 tailgate from a chap on ebay - managed to get it for 13 quid  :grin: and was about 350 for the work, but that was discounted quite abit

I like the wheels, give the car abit GRRR, was worried about them TBH but I aint no girly girl so it's all good

They are from an A4 cab. Electric and heated  :wink: they needed abit of jiggery poker to make them fit, unless your any good at or know someone who is good at abit of fabrication work then I wouldnt bother - I paid just over £300 for the interior which was alittle worn for an extra 300 could've just got my own front redone to my own spec. As it is I'm having the audi seats recovered in the next couple of weeks as the rears make them look not as good as they could  :grin:
They are really comfy tho  :cool:

Hey Sas, gtta say i love the car although i am just a little annoyed at the fact that ur a lady and you have a better car than me lol i think that just out of principle we should trade and you should start fresh!  :drool:

Just out of interest how much was it lowered before you fitted the air suspension?? and what size tyres did you have 235/35 r19??

Hi kyle, it was all the way down on the avo coilovers and they tyres were 235/35/19 - had a little rub issue at first but soon got that sorted.

Thanks for your kind words... just proves women do it better  :grin:

Thanks again.
