    Hi Guys,

    Got a build thread over on Mk5 golf GTi and, thought I'd post one on here too! Have had myMK5 Golf GTI Edition 30 2 years now. Love the Car to pieces. Here's what it looked like standard:

    [​IMG].

    Then decided to get the Wheels sprayed Black last year April

    [​IMG]

    Then, got some goodies in June 2010:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    AP Coilovers and 18", 8.5 A8 Comps.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    At this stage the car had Revo Stage 1 map, AP Coilovers, ITG Maxogen Intake, WALK Kit and The 8 Comps.

    Next up was a Milltek Non Res Cat Back.

    [​IMG].

    Loved the sound it made too!

    Then up went the US Spec Front Grille and the R32 Front Set up with Tarox Discs.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Also, Changed the Wheels to the Monza Huffs/Detroits:

    [​IMG]

    They were in quite a bad way when I got them. Got few quotes to get the refurbed in Glos Black but because the Silver Strip was so badly damaged the quotes were more than I paid for the Wheels. So, I got them Sprayed all Gloss Black and lost the Silver lip at work.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    A lot of People don't like the "Murdered look" but, I love it!! Next up I, wanted more Power so, ordered 3 months ago a Milltek decat Downpipe and a Forge DV.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Working for Audi is a great benefit as I can use the facilities to fit my bits and, my 2 mates are a huge help for fitting for me too! For the fitting of the Decat Downpipe I went to AMD Essex as I wanted to go Revo Stage 2+ as, I had also got Autotech HPFP Internals. So booked in with them to get that done, Rolling Roaded at 365bhp which I was well happy with!

    As soonas I left AMD, MAJOR Clutch slip!!

    [​IMG]

    So, the next day I called APS and ordered my Sachs uprated Cltch and gou my LUK Flywheel from buypartsbuy.co.uk. Got my Release Bearing, Flywheel Bolts and Clutch Bolts from Work.

    [​IMG]

    Fitting this was a nightmare as we put it in, boxed it up and had major Vibration and strong Clutch smell. So, took it all apart again as we thought we put the plates on wrong but, they were on right. So boxed it up and could finally put the power down!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Finally, last week I ffitted my Forge Twintercooler and RS4 Fuel Pressure Valve and, also got my Revo settings put back on from when we disconnected the battery for the Clutch installation. Got it RR'd again and, put out 380bhp which I'm happy with. Also, done my Cam Belt and Water Pump. Oil Service next weekend before Inters!

    So fo now that's the story with my Car. Ordered THS Engine Mounts as I don't need the Dog Niubt as I have an ECS one and, also EIBach Front and Rear ARB's! Saving for my Quaiffe Diff which I shoul have by September and then getting my Hybrid Turbo!

    Thanks for looking, Guys!!

    Fwd and 380bhp must be a bit interesting, especially if its a bit wet. Great post though, just a shame its a Golf (jk).

    I'd get that silver lip back on the wheels though, all that black just looks too much imo.

    The car is very interesting to drive in the wet. I'm actually getting some OZ lightweight Wheels soon so, will run these as my winter wheels when I do drive it in the Winter as its a nightmare in the Snow.

    You will love it!! The only downside to it, is no $ wheel drive! Once it gets going Its quicker than my mates Stage 2+ 8P S3! I've been thinking about a $ wheel drive conversion... We'll see!!??

    I have pretty much the same car, had it for 2 years as well, still love it!

    I still prefer the standards wheels to be honest!

    Im stage 3 superchips at the mo but not sure weather its running as it should. ANyone changed from SC to Reve? wanna know if its worth it?

    Mine kept up with a 997 Carrea (not the S)

    Is it worth me getting an intake system as only have a panel filter at the moment!

    @baldwined30- I know 2 people who have converted from SC to Revo and, the difference is huge! Get Revo put on at Inters if your going! They always have deals there! An Intake is also a definite! Helps your car to breathe better and, get a nice note from em too! I raced a Carrera S on the way to work one day and let's just say he wasn't impressed with seeing me pass him, lol!

    Cheers, Foxmeister! I did like the Fast 5's but, for some reason always been a fan of the Monza's!

    @baldwined30: I would say go for the ITG, mate! They give great gains and, look nice and a great sounding bit of kit!

    When you had the HPFP done, did you notice any difference in sound when you open it up? so your running stage 2+ revo map??
    Think the intake is the next mod for me!

    Great read mate, I bought an Edition 30 a couple of months back and I'm loving it, mines a black 5 dr, when I bought it I sent it in to AMD for a full service, cambelt & pump, miltek, panel filter & remap, and it transformed the thing, made 322bhp on the rollers although i'm not that fussed about the figure as such its the way it feels now is just superb:racer:! I'm not going any further with engine mods but would like to change the brakes, was wondering where you got your R32 front set up from and how you are getting on with them? Are they a big improvement? Do the caliper carriers bolt on the hub ok or do you have to change that aswell?
    Thanks for posting this on here, great read and very good figures, must be seriously quick now, I'm chuffed to bits with mine so you must be loving it!!!

    Wes.:thumbsup:
