Firstly I'd like to introduce myself I'm Dan be been lurking around since I got my mk4 GTi in January but not yet posted on the forum... I purchased my golf in January with only 49 k!!! on the clocks in original untouched condition with a complete full vw service history..First thing that I did was refreshed and renewed all the brakes and discs Inc brake fliuds., Also at the same time had the belt and water pump changed.

Over the summer decide that I wanted the body work putting right as last owner was a woman and all four corners hads little bumper and scrapes, so sent off to the bodyshop for a full respray. After lots of decision rather to start some engine mods or suspension upgrades I decided that I would go for the safe option and upgrade my suspension next.

So I final bit the bullet and decided on a full Audi TT complete set up front and rear ( Which I found a guy on the Mk4 golf forum on FB) I'm collecting my set up by the end of the month and to complete this she will be riding on a set of AP coilovers...

Things to do next
Wheels.
Engine mods
And interior..

Hope you enjoy my write up

Cheers

Not updated in a while but all my suspension fitted and car looks and handles a dream...

Also recently had FIS clocks fitted and a remap...

Soon after the remap car decided it's wanted a new clutch so also fitted G60 flywheel and vr6 clutch and what a difference this has made....8bca4e14d4f6a507d12296e0f6262fcb.jpg

So it been a while busy with work, family life kids and doing a few shows over last couple of months..

So since fitting my TT set up and coilovers I've had a really really annoying clunking noise... Would only do this on acceleration and braking, also you could do it within about 1 foot of driving froward... It turned out to be the lower subframe mount strap.

Also for months and months had the same cam sensor fault, changed to 3 different sensor and still no joy

While having the G60/vr6 fitted had timing checked no luck and still the fault remainined..

Well after spend a huge wod of cash finally found out timing was out by one tooth
Yeah .... No more fault

Also had fitted a full Milltek system with hidden back box, center section and new decat...

So can taken to local vw specialist near Fleetwood last Thursday 26th July and had

Another Remap
Decat fitted and sensor mapped out...
Suspension noise sorted
Timing issue sorted
S3 strut brace fitted...

Could of bought another golf , but ohh well.... Made just shy 200bhp, so happy so far...

Next step more part to buy for the next round of mods.... c3da82171caf68be828b357591491cde.jpgAttached File  2018-07-31-19-53-02.jpeg   41.71KB   61 downloads6b9075513ac43adf45fb8f7f83565050.jpg8a49e9574930a6f9dae4bba8eb785819.jpg
