So decided to start a slow progress thread for mk4 r32.


Always loved these cars and had been saving up a lot and done a lot of searching for the right one. After viewing a couple disastrous examples I saw this one pop up in the for sale section, so went and viewed and came home with it that day
.

Only had the car a few days now and I love it, sound is so addictive, yet to even turn the radio on! Quick spec:

-Half leather seats
-Full miltek non res exhaust inc miltek sports cats
-H&R 20mm lowering springs
-auto dimming rear view mirror
-cruise control
-rain sensor wipers
-sharan badge
-mk5 wiper
-Cupra R splitter
-rear spacers

Got it for a good price too so im a happy chap!

Soon as I got it home I already had things I wanted to do, first thing being is cleaning up the exhaust. Needed a good polish up as the tips were black.

Pic to show the difference:



(Did do the other tip too
)

Also had the US spec lights from my old car so I swapped them onto it.

Luckily my old chap is a mechanic, so got it down to his garage to give it a good check over.



All it needs is a new front tire so can't complain


Finally took advantage of the nice day and gave it a clean too.



















The all important sticker



And thats about it so far


Got a few plans in mind so will keep this updated with pics!
Cheers guys!

looks like a good example, what mods do you have in mind for the future?

Lovely car mate, liking the stuff you've done! Nice and subtle! Keep it up!
Thanks a lot
I can't really take credit for the mods as most of them were done by the previous owner lol. But plan is to keep it subtle looking

Seeing as it was nice weather decided to give the car a clean, sorry for poor pics, taken from iPhone!







Also gave it a service and changed the plus so I know it's all running healthy

Had the day to sort out a few things with the R. The previous owner had a little encounter with a big curb and scratched the side of the front bumper. So ordered a touch up pen from VW. Didn't turn out too bad to be honest, by no means perfect, but looks a lot neater now

After:





Pinched my mums camera and took a couple of photos aswel (no idea what I'm doing with a camera but thought they looked cool haha)







Hopefully have some proper updates soon!

Not an update as such, just a little cleaning!

Read a few posts about cleaning up steering wheels, and magic sponges seemed quite popular so got myself some of ebay and set to work


Steering wheel has looked a bit neglected since ive had the car, was in need of a good clean up!

before:







After:









pretty chuffed with the results, i prefer the matt look rather than shiny! Worth the £2 they cost

They do work really well, just needs something on it to protect the leather
Yeah really impressed with them! I need to invest in something to protect like you say. Don't want to touch the steering wheel now haha
