OMG OMG OMG OMG!!

I am saving these pictures to me HD...

This is EXACTLY what I am saving for.

Big thanks for posting these, your car is seriously mint and I am very jealous! This is the future of the GTI, a seriously wonderful car!

Apologies for getting over excited over some GTI pics!

Perfect. Exactly how I'd have my mkV GTI if I could afford one! (well with the exception of the black VW badge).

You've done the rear valance just right too, leaving the very bottom bit plastic.

Hmmmmm! I'll be having a drive by your place next week Trev to see it on the drive! The 18's look fantastic compared to the standard 17's - Are you still going for some 19's? What rims are you thinking of this time round?

Thanks for all your positive comments. Colour coding cost me ?200 at my local bodyshop, but I had to remove the parts. Yes, I prefer the bottom section of the bumper unpainted, looks less custom car IMO. I left the centre section of the front spoiler unpainted as well, to match. Just hope I don't spoil it when I put my RH Crossline 19s on, they arrive tomorrow. I'll post a photo once they're fitted.

Looking forward to the pics with the 19"s.

Can't see you having problems with selling the 18"s if thats what you wanted to do.

200 pounds well spent IMO.

Looks even more aggressive with that black VW badge on the front I think.

Love the black badge. Love it all in fact. Rear spoiler with centre unpainted looks just fantastic. I would leave the wheels standard if it was my car but I'm sure the 19s will look great.

I really have to get myself one of these. I think I will get one last nice car before I move out and buy a house.

I'm going to find it hard to not order one of these babies in Oct which is only 7 months away now!!!!!

Can't see why vw didn't send them from the factory like this??

Worst thing about the mk5's looks, has to be that vast amount of unpainted rear bumper.

Nice work squire!
