New car, new thread.
As per my old thread (https://uk-mkivs.net...-green-machine/) I've reached the limit of endurance with my mk4 and decided I fancied something newer and in a completely different direction. I knew I wanted to stay VW, newer platform, and something reasonably loaded (So theres less for me to do!)
I ended up putting suggestions out to tender, and somebody suggested an Eos, I took a look and was sold, low mileage, good spec examples for sale within a decent, budget, and the added benefit of a hard top folding roof.
Several bad experiences with dealerships later, I saw one that ticked a lot of boxes. Sadly, it was three hours away on the south coast, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. The battered old golf (bless it) took me there and back in a day, which was a killer, but fruitful. The car more then lived up to my expectations, and a deal was done.
Meet the new whip.....
2.0 TDI common rail engine (140bhp)
Candy White paint
Red Napa leather interior with heated front seats and electric lumber support
Powerfolding mirrors (heated, reverse dip and auto dim drivers glass)
Auto dim rear view mirror
Rain sensor (auto wipers)
Lowered sports suspension (15mm)
LED rear light clusters
RCD310 with MDI in arm rest
Black Peak interior trim inserts + black headlining
Mirror puddle lights
Oh, and of course, the impressive folding roof which includes a tilt and slide sun roof, all of 56,000 miles and a full service history, including a recent belt and pump change.
Plans wise, very little currently. It needs a damn good clean (the steering wheel has a "texture" to it that is made of human slime and the leather has been "treated" with silicone, slipping around all over the shop)
but this is going to be a proper, no bodge, OEM plus build. Learning from the mistakes of the Golf, set a goal and achieve, no dalliances around with random side mods.
Full clean and seal the paint
Drag the infotainment into the modern era with a RCD330 short term, long term look for a discover PRO
Remap (research suggests around 190bhp and decent torque, happy with that)
Custom exhaust (There's nothing "off the shelf) for this)
Roof Control Module
OEM reverse camera
Only got dealership photos currently, although I had a crcking weekend with the other half picking it up and driving the south coast in the 25+ heat, I forgot to take any photos, I was too busy burning my head and getting mild sun stroke (note to self, buy a damn hat!)
