Gmac's red mk5 gti

So this is the car that's replaced my s3 8l.... Very nice to be driving something 5 years newer!

Not too much to say about it really... Needs jobs doing to it, paintwork isn't great, Cambelt and service is needed. Alloys need a refurb. So yeh...It drives really well! Totally different to the s3, better! Love my tartan seats! Haha

Nice that it has the satnav, cruise control, TPWS (is that standard?) Xenons, Auto dimming rear view mirror (again standard?)

Please excuse the pish photos!! Just something to get the ball rolling! I'll get better in due course...

Far better chassis out of the box on the mk5 over the mk4 type chassis.  

few bolt ons will see you 300 bhp

Haha! Yeh must resist!!  Getting the overdue cambelt and waterpump is the priority first!

Have to say it drives very well, soaks up bumps but remains alert at the same time. Goes pretty well too!

I love these!!

My sister bought a new silver 3 door when they first came out.

My missus would like a 5 door like yours.

Nice looking motor Guy.

Got some H&R 30mm lowering springs on at the weekend, Coullstar came round and helped..Cheers G!















And today picked up a set of Audi dtm 18" alloys from Coullstar (he needed to get rid of some to pay for the Porsche exhaust!!! Lol). So put them on this evening..Pretty cuffed with them and combined with the lowering springs, I think the car looks way better!!...

Agreed, they do look much better!

Haven't updated this in ages...

Changed the lower rear bumper for colour coded one, looks way better I reckon!...



Also tidied up the exhaust , not perfect but a fair bit better....

Before..


After...



Also re-hung the drivers door as it sat low and it was bugging me every time I looked in the wing mirror..

Before...



After....



I've also fitted a MFSW, not got all the buttons working, but I will get round to sorting it...handy having the volume buttons working as the head unit volume control is uber sensitive when changing volume...no pics

Fitted the 'gti' badges in to the height adjustment handles.. It's the wee things.. And you see it every time you get in and out!..

Before..



After....



Still loving the speedlines!..

The DV PCV and fuel pump bucket seem to be the first things to do on these. Looks well

lovely car and you've just made it alot better with the subtle mods, don't know what tpws is but auto dimming mirror is a facotry option not sure if it can be retro fitted but carnt see someone going to the extent,

iv seen alot of people talk about these cam followers what exactly are they??? 5 door Is the best.

The tpws is Tyre pressure monitoring system, an option I believe.
