Jeynesey's Edition 30
« on: 24 September 2010, 21:54 »
Have decided to create a thread for my ed30, with the prospect of mods coming in the (not so distant :lipsrsealed:) future lol....


As some of you know my old car was a mk4 gti T, as shown below...








I owned it for about 18 months and although I loved it, it started costing money and wanted something a bit nicer :grin:


So in May/April I was looking at Audi A3's, then I almost bought a standard MkV Gti.

Plans then changed, I priced up a Scirocco, then decided not to upgrade at all and keep the mk4  :rolleyes:

I popped into my local dealership for a part with my girlfriend and saw the ed30 on the forecourt and knew I HAD to have it straight away  :grin:

Piccys from when I 1st got it....





I will update with what I've done so far and some more pics ASAP. I can safely say its the nicest car Ive ever driven and still love it as much as when I first got it.  :cool:

think about it like this the money u save in buying an uprated kit instead of expensive coilies can be put towards luggage nets, load liners and other pointless tat that mk5/6 drivers love getting! :grin:
