Right, ive had my gti for about 4 months and was totally standard when i baught it.
it came from JCT600 in bradford and has NO EXTRAS and is a MANUAL
(all them extras just weigh it down anyways
with in the first week i had it lowered just on springs by 20mm as i couldnt afford coilovers at the time, (coilovers are now on order from awesome gti
my car also came with 17" monza's which do not do ANY car ANY favours so i bought some cheap audi 18" (pic below)
^^also with the springs on,
after the alloys i had a re map and noticed a massive difference in torque taking the car from std 200bhp to around 255bhp.
after the remap i got a carbonio filter from awesome, which was a pain to fit as the front would not go in the std intake hole. so i used screws and screwed it in best i could. (pics below)
after this system was installed i could instantly tell the difference, normally aftermarket filters are all mouth and no go but this is the opposite, i can still hear a slight induction roar but the feeling of the car changed and is able to breath alot more freely and honestly feels quicker!!
anyway a week after fitting this......my brother reversed into the side of my car so it was in the body shop for a week
after my brother had a seriously dead arm my car was out and i want to spend more money on it so off with the audi wheels and on with some BBS RS-GT's laced in goodyear eagle f1's
(orderd from road and stage motorsport morecambe (RSM))
went to pick them up, opened the box, and to my shok they had RED CENTERS!!
NOW THIS IS BECOMING A REAL PROBLEM!!!
i need some 65mm BLACK bbs centers and i cant find any ANYWHERE (pm me if anybody finds any
) i even baught some self ad ones and stuck them over the red ones........washed my car at weekend and they fell straight off!!!
i also purchased a forge DV valve from gazbutmk5gti second hand for 90pounds which i thought was reasonable and was like new with hauses already cut to the crrect length, i dont have any pics of this because its far too hard to get to and took me 4 1/2 hours to fit
i also picked up some eibach anti roll bars of fleebay for 70pounds which is the bargin of the century
next mods include
1. BLACK CENTER CAPS!!!!!!!!!! are a must
fitting the anti rolls
fitting the eibach coilovers that are on order with awesome. (same time as roll bars)
4. R32/ED30 rear lights (smoked)
5. OSIR front splitter with carbon insert.
6. OSIR side skirts
7. OSIR rear carbon "exhaust" spoiler (mk5 boys know what i mean
OSIR turbo boost gauge
9. tinted windows
german plates on order
11. led drl's in the light unit
12. black VW badges (front and back)
so thats it for the moment, ill update after i get back from america in 2 weeks when the new susspension is fitted
and hopefully balck centers
