My g/f said she had bought me a xmas present in 2004 a 2.0 gttdi-it came at the time with every mod possible ie full leather,6 disc and 8 speakers-the winter pack and the 17" estoril alloys..
this is the only picture i have in standard spec

The first mod

The car was only 2 months old and i changed the audio

changed the speakers to these all round--ground zero audio


then put in a header unit.After 9 different ones i settled on this

by luck i purchased the ipod shelf of e bay for £40
Also put the alpine black bird sat nav in

Last year i purchased some geniune R32 alloys with brand new tyres for £700 of e-bay and some R32 lights
and a private number plate



bought orig r32 alloys with the tractor look



got a remap done at awesome-which transformed the car-i went back down thier to get the map tweaked but the turbo blow up on thier rollers(no fault of Awesomes)

So i was saving up like mad for some coil overs to get rid of the tractor look and got kw v1 fitted.These pictures where took straight after fitting,the kw have settled now and it is a bit lower..



After the dreaded white worm had attacked the rear badge i purchased the new 3d ones but it sticked out by 2mm which i didn't like


so i got the orig flat badge and got my mate to paint the front and back badges and i debadged it..


Then got these fitted


got high line clocks converted vfrom kmh to mph fitted thanks to Skard-not took any pics of these yet

rolling shot down the a1

Darren came to my works today and the plan was to go from this

and fit this R32 steering wheel


but then me and Darren swapped and i got this instead


After 2 long months i would like to thank TurboTrev for saving these for me until i got the cash together 19" bbs ck..

i had my car detailed last year just before summer as the swirls in the sun light were starting to annoy me every time the sun hit my car and been pearlescent black been one of the worst colours for showing swirls etc...After a few months i stupidly rushed to get my car clean to go to a show and put some swirls in the bonnet and down the sides :stupid:
I contacted Rich after seeing pics of his car perfectly cleaned..i went up to Rich house today and this is the results






The finish Rich got on the paint work is amazing and his eye for detail is excellent..
Thank you Rich for today & it was good to meet you
i know this is a bit a marmite mod but i like it

head lights changed for the dark gti ones..



having seen a similiar post i thought i would try this little mod on my car by changing the white reverse lens to a red one out of my old light.....a small little mod but looks a lot better now
before

after

after seeing Chuffs build thread and his lcr splitter..thought it looked excellent so i fitted one to mine and also painted the calipers red and redid the dust sheilds black..the only pic i have is this one taken at the show on sat-

bought these R32 calipers of e-bay last week

then finally got them fitted today,just got the retaining clip to fit

R32 rear brakes fitted also

full miltek non res fitted




vortex front splitter



arrived thier a bit early but they got my car set up on the rollers awaiting for the arrival of Nick..he ran it as standard and it was pushing out 153bhp...then Nick mapped the car and the result is

took a 4hr drive to see Chris and get the alpine ine s900r fitted today--when Chris removed my old header unit (alpine 320 with sat nav & ipod interface) he was shocked to see how a top Company that was in sunderland had wired up and botched the install..Chris reconnect the wires and installed the new unit..the bonus bit was the buttons on my mk6 steering wheel works now as well...its a excellent bit of kit now i have got the hang of it---i went for this unit over the rns10 because i am running to amps and a sub in the boot--also averaged 56mpg so all in all a good day for me

Alloys refurb at the wheel specialist at Newcastle



got car detailed at get polished





Took a little road trip to Darrons house (mortrygttdi) also like to thank Richn83 for supplying the polar fis unit

BUT the best bit is
Darron cr hybrid stage 2--can't wait to get it fitted

thanks rich for polar fis

vw fest 2012 harewood house

Thanks Gulfstream for giving this to me at vw fest show

took this at a local meet

Also the proper high line clocks

S3 intercooler getting fitted





Cheap mod--dark cherry red hazzard switch


the oem one

mini meet at mine for retro fitting by Ed


had rear foot well illumination fitted-pics dont do then justice

Fitted led number plate bulbs

Ever since i got my alpine ines900r header unit i have always wanted it to show in the high line part of the dash but nobody knew if it would work with a mk6 steering wheel and the inerface cable been £85 i thought better of it..Then Dandave got a cable to work on his,so i bought the cable for mine and fitted it tonight


Since taking my audio out like the amps etc--thought it was time to put them back in starting with descreet sub box


the audio has arrived
