Hi everyone, thought I'd make a thread to keep progress on any mods and tidying up on the new car.

I've been lurking for a while as a non member and a member. I was on the lookout for a while for the ideal car, I had a certain spec in mind and came across one on the Facebook group that ticked most of the boxes but wasn't actually listed for sale. It was a relatively low mileage (69K) MK4 R32 in deep blue pearl with full leathers. I do want half and half leathers but that was something I had to compromise on for now.

I previously owned a couple of MK5 Golf 1.9TDI and I've recently just sold my BMW E92 330D.

I've attached a couple of pictures of previous cars.

Purchased the car coming up to two months ago and haven't looked back. Been working through little jobs here and there but nothing major so far.

  • 4 x Michelin PS4
  • Full Lucifer exhaust with sports cat
  • Drivers door lock module
  • Replaced headlight washers and holders
  • Headlight ballast and bulbs
  • Brand new genuine lower grills
  • Passenger side seat belt buckle as the seat had caught it and split the rubber that holds it upright
  • Front plate mounted with a Magnaplate kit
  • All calipers repainted in Ultramarine Blue
  • US centre console with armrest delete tray and MK5 cupholder inserts as they are a perfect fit
  • Brand new genuine side repeaters
  • Sony XAV-AX1000 which has apple car play to replace the old alpine unit that was in when I purchased the car

Booked into the bodyshop in the next few weeks for a little tidy up

A few more pictures

New tyre day!


Half decent cupholders!


First wash in progress!


After a little blast!


My second home!
