With the Golf following the same fate as my Bora it's time to welcome the new money pit.

 

Picked it up today for a decent price and it's safe to say I'm over the moon with it. It's what the GTI should have been and then some Paper bag

 

It's already got quite a list of mods done and it's currently running a Stage 2 Revo map Automobile

 

So the spec is as follows

 

Engine:

 

Revo Stage 2

Blueflame Full Exhaust System with Sports Cats

Forge FMIC

Full set of Samco Black Hoses including TIP

Replacement Forge Hose (Charge Pipe to Turbo)

EIP Short Shift

Green Panel Filter

80mm Cold Air Feed

N249 By-Pass

Black Rocker Cover

Black Inlet Manifold

Black Forge Split-R

 

Suspension:

Bilstein B14 Coilovers

Leon Cup OZ Racing 18x8J Wheels refurbed in SEAT Platinum, with Red Decals

Toyo T1-R tyres

S3 Front Strut Brace

Upper Rear Strut Brace

Lower Rear Strut Brace

14mm Front Wheel Spacers

10mm Rear Wheel Spacers

 

Interior:

Black leather Audi S3 Recaros with electric adjustment

Black leather & black plastic door cards to match the seats (not shown in pictures)

Bespoke Alloy Dead Pedals

SEAT Sport Leather & Aluminium Gear Knob

VW Passat W8 Interior Light

Glowshift Boost Gauge in Nomad A-Pillar Pod

 

Other:

4000K HID

Fabia Rear Wiper

Rear and Rear Side Window Tints

Front and rear 'S' badges painted in SEAT platinum, with red 'SEAT Sport' decals

Black centre grille surround

Removed number plate bracket, sticky front number plate fitted

 

 

Only have one pic for now, there will hopefully be more tomorrow once my first mod has been completed Yes

Cheers buddy. Definitely more of a drivers car, it handles like it's on rails!

It hasn't been on the rollers but the power should be around 270-280bhp hopefully.

Compared to the golf is so much faster it's unreal haha

Air is going nowhere near this car! (you heard that Shammy?!)

The Bilstein's handle spot on! 

Yeah the wheels are pretty rare from what I have been told, I've got two spares as well!

 

 

Good choice lol

Cheers man, and yeah I'm sure I will have a couple so that's greatly appreciated.

What's wrong with Cupranet lol?

nice Smile 

i look at these ever so often and wonder if it would be better than the S3... 

sure it would be quicker without the Haldex and all that gear. 

 

will be good to see what you do with this one mate

I can't really compare as the LCR has had a lot done to it especially as the mods are geared towards driveability rather than looks. However it is a lot more fun than the Golf ever was.

Must say the wheels have really grown on me, I've been told they're pretty rare as well.

 

 

Nice :) Yes

Thanks Smile
