Good Evening.


Thought I would make a little thread about my MK5 Golf GTi that I have just bought,


I bought the car as a bit of a project after selling my Series 2 Escort RS Turbo & then My Impreza STi.


It will be my weekend toy as I work at a car sales place & have a choice of over 100 that I can choose from to go home in.


Anyway pics of the day I got it

As you can see it needs a lot of TLC but I know once done it will be a nice car. Got a few plans for it already

Had a MK5 Golf come in part ex at work over the weekend, It had carbon wrapped steering wheel inserts in it & since mine were a bit worn I decided to swap them over.

They would niggle me that the pattern is going the same direction on opposite sides of the wheel. I like symmetry

Bought a few things for the Golf so far.

Posted Image

New Discs & pads all round.. Whilst having them done It was discovered the rear calipers were seized solid so had to get new calipers, Unfortunately they came in silver so had to paint them to match the fronts

Posted Image

Also bought genuine timing belt & water pump kit

Posted Image

Gave it a quick was to see how it looked a bit cleaner

Posted Image

Posted Image

Also bought an air filter & piping for it
