Yeah, I wasn't planning to change the looks dramatically. Although, I am really drawn to a bonnet extension and bad boy style lights (Proper metal ones like in the PVW subscription advert for US on the black motor). Apart from that, just general smoothing, bumpers, door strips and boot.
Thinking of keeping the stock alloys aslwell though. Just dropping it severly on them, lol.
Got me sport japan discs, just needing the pads and they'll be on, then its the engine (well actually before any bodywork). Got k03s (not fitted) and Miltek high flow cat and exhaust (fitted), getting TT225 injectors, TIP and a panel filter, then remap (unichip from Dastek).
Well, my golf has been off the road for 6 months now, and to be fair, I was getting pissed of with the Pug 306 I have been using as a daily in the meantime. Sooooooooo, I decided to get something else. OK, OK, its not a mk4, but hey, its still VAG, so not too embarrased about posting it here. Remember though, its just a daily.
Well, now I have had the motor for 6 days (600+ miles and 4 washes), I
thought I would post up some pics. 2.0 TDi SE A3. 2003, 74k. Nice
honest reliable motor while the Golf is still having work done (again,
cheers Grum, you're a star mate).
Please excuse the pics. They were only taken on my phone.
And couldn't help myself...
Now all I need is the Alloys to go with the substantial drop and my evil plan will be realised, lol.
On another note. My brother in law has just bought himself a VAG aswell...
The Golfs engine is pretty much as finished as its gonna get for the foreseeable future, so hopefully take it straight from the tuner to the painter, lol. So no pics for that. But the Audi got some new rims (which may well make it over to the Golf). Pics:
Well, got me some new wheels and tyres, so decided to trial fit them to the A3. Not sure if I won't put them on the Golf mind, but they will look good on the A3.
Although, you could park a cruise ship between the tyre and the arch at the moment :boot: . Need to get them springs on now I think. Anyway. Photo's. Enjoy.
Well. Finally got the MK4 back from Dastek, after a long time away. She has had some mapping work done, aswell as their twin intercooler set-up now being installed as my standard one was maxxed. Pics of the install are on their way apparently and as soon as I have them, I shall be sure to post them here.
In the meantime though, as its been so long since I last posted any pics of my golf, and haven't posted any with my new lights, I got her home, gave her a quick pressure wash to take all the months of sitting about muck off, and took some pics. A full wash and polish is on the cards for tomorrow, so might get some more up tomorrow. In the meantime, here are some shots...
I think its sitting not too bad with them coilovers, but gonna put these on tomorrow :
You are, in fact, correct. However, I have pre-planned the situation and have aquired a set of hub adaptor/spacers for the task. So that I can buy all my alloys in 5x112 now and choose where to put them, lol.
My A3 currently sits on BBS Callitos (can be seen further up the post on the A3), which will probably make it onto the golf as soon as I can sort other alloys for the A3 (the wife doesn't want anything less than 18's on "her" A3 [cry])
I was just gonna put the standard A3's on as a stop-gap as they are different from the Monty's, and one of them has a puncture so its sitting on a steel at the moment.
