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..
VWGOLF005.jpg
this is the only picture i have in standard spec
The first mod
Image035.jpg
The car was only 2 months old and i changed the audio
Vwgolfbuild.jpg
changed the speakers to these all round
nc1650.jpg
then put in a header unit.After 9 different ones i settled on this
alpinescreen.jpg
by luck i purchased the ipod shelf of e bay for £40
Also put the alpine black bird sat nav in
mn400e.jpg
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
i got round to getting these ORIG r32 lights fitted even thou i got them for my birthday 4 weeks ago[:DD]
IMG_0736.jpg
IMG_0742.jpg
IMG_0743.jpg
IMG_0741.jpg
bought orig r32 alloys with the tractor look

Image117.jpg
Image122.jpg

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)
bhpmap.jpg

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..

IMG_0916.jpg
IMG_0915.jpg
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
IMG_0971.jpg
so i got the orig flat badge and got my mate to paint the front and back badges and i debadged it..

Darren came to my works today and the plan was to go from this
IMG_0018.jpg
and fit this R32 steering wheel
r32a1.jpg
but then me and Darren swapped and i got this instead
IMG_0019.jpg
Just like to thank Darren(mortygttdi) for fitting this today
After 2 long months i would like to thank TurboTrev for saving these for me until i got the cash together 19" bbs ck..my car had orig R32 alloys on..

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

DSC_1442.jpg

DSC_1438.jpg

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

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
IMG_0741.jpg
after
IMG_0318.jpg
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-
blackgolfwhees_edited-1.jpg
bought these R32 calipers of e-bay last week

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
r-tech.jpg
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

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
20131213_180418_zps9cdfcf0e.jpg

well having made the disission to put myamps back in the boot and sub i wanted to put the VW symbol in the boot and i needed it cutting out of mdf but asi dont have any wood work tools i thought i would ring round a few joiners but the prices were stupid--so i looked on ebay and found this that cost £720140318_165805_zpsc803e0dc.jpg
so in the boot
20140318_171553_zpse6212a78.jpg

swapping the clocks over is not difficult to do but getting the right parts is ie the clocks the slip ring and steering module

What clocks are those andy....

Not sure Rich i bought them of Skyard on here..he said they are of german e bay then coded to work on mine

loads Rich..full milltek and change the back valance...Daz(mortygttdi) is coming to put the blue tooth kit in so it works in the high line

after much decision making going to put a bigger turbo on

Bigger brakes...

Your going for the fiscon? Im thinking about either getting an rns510... or getting that kenwood VW 'oem' radio with all the stuff built in!


So after what power are you aiming for?

 Cheers Patch oem+ is how i like them..


Am going for the new alpine double din header unit,its about the the price as the Kenwood i think Rich...As for power wise about 240 i hope..hopefully some thing along the lines of Rays(ard)..or may be a bit more as Ray says mine might get more power being 16v,
