A week later, this happened
Than soon has i got it home i knew little things had to change, although im not the biggest fan of the MK5 Golf looks, i absolutely loved everything else about the Golf
yep these didnt fit too well. 19x9 et40. so needed to go back to the drawing board and get rid of these, shame as they were mint and new tyres. anyhow the next step was
and some lowering springs, which got the end result of
than just a bit of servicing and topping up fluids
so at this stage the car was lowered, new wheels and fully detailed but wasn't the cleanest of cars, it had a big dent on the roof but apart from that everything worked and gave it a good service and DSG, Haldex service

I did the wheels as part of a refurb, as they have excellent tyres on them but they were proper battered, so i refurbed them up and knew they were never going to get cleaned regularly as they're horrible and difficult to do. so decided on doing them gold to see how they would suit the car. Thing is now i really really like them. but they are only on till spring when the BBS will be going back on alongside some coilovers
Next on the list is a Lucifer Exhaust system until spring where more bits and bobs will start

That sound is unreal, just res delete ?
I read somewhere it messes the flapper up ?
No loss in power or fuel consumption ?
Yes just res delete
Flapper is connected still so no loss of power and consumption is ok. Now that I have had the chance to put a couple of hundred miles on it. It does reset the computer system of the car though as I noticed the sounds changing in the first few miles. So it must adapt withy he air flow or emissions or something. You do noticed bad MPG but that's because your driving it loud everywhere. Honeymoon period
With the flapper connected I can still drive it under 3k revs and it drives like a normal R32 so really happy. Dare not try it without the flapper connected. I did this before and he's it sounds great but low down power loss was annoying. Especially with the DSG because you need that power at junctions etc

How is it at 60-70 mph, motorways speeds etc?
Been speaking to Lucifer today about one of these
Still undecided about doing this or going for a cat back system from him.
