    My best find!

    Not a bad find... I bought a 2004 Raven blue Gti on 59k with leather seats and aircon for 3 grand!
  2. £205 isn't too bad of a price to be fair! If you get this done you'll have to post up some pictures of it! Would be very interested in the outcome!

    BBS RC 321's... who has em?

    They are such nice wheels, they suit the gti perfectly! definitely should have been a factory option!

    Jamie's black GTI (now Raven Blue)

    I had it done at Tony Banks exhausts. They added another hanger near the tailpipes to give it more support
  6. Decided to make a thread here to keep track of my progress with my GTI. Bought her back in January when she looked like this... Definitely a few rough edges (lacquer peel, kerbed alloys) general 14 year old car wear and tear! Changed a few thing's whilst waiting to pass my driving test, but it was mainly a case of keeping her clean and kissing her goodnight..the usual. Got myself some pressed plates and got some Cambridge lights which I de-tangoed Then I passed my driving test and could finally drive her! This was my first ever drive out on my own, First stop was for some petrol Absolutely love driving her, amazing little car! have also had the alloys refurbished and polished/cleaned like a right nob head Did a little touch up job on the rear brakes aswell because they had been replaced with grey ones and it annoyed me everytime I saw them!

    Jamie's black GTI (now Raven Blue)

    Quick update, got my smaller aerial, looks a lot neater! and I sprayed behind the VW badge to match the car. I'm looking at replacing the MK5 chrome VW badge with a '3D' one off newer Golfs, apparently they are near enough the same fit. Still need to get it wired up so it opens with the handle actually aswell! Need to find somewhere to take it as I know nothing about wiring!

    Jamie's black GTI (now Raven Blue)

    Cheers, I've ordered one! Looks exactly what I was after! it is not. I'm not 100% on if I'm actually going and it's a bit off show standard in places to be honest! Cheers, it's getting there! the wheels are 7 inch wide fronts and 8 inch rears. ET25 all round and the tyres are 195/40/16

    Couple more pics. Me and the missus went down to VWNW at Tatton Park today, really great day! Heading to VWfest next Sunday I think aswell! Finally got my new wheels on, love them! Edit: Fancy a smaller aerial, not a shark fin one, just a shorter one about the same length of the thick bit on the standard one. Any recommendations for a decent quality one?

    Steel doors on GTI?

    Pretty sure the screen should be sekurit aswell!

    Steel doors on GTI?

    it should be sekurit glass and not pilkington, tell tale sign! My old Gti had a standard window on passenger side which i had to replace!

    New exhaust and bought some Wing mirror covers that I painted black. Ship shape Couldn't recommend Tony Banks enough! Exhaust is perfect and sounds lovely!

    Subframe bolts

    Seat parts shop website is a handy place for bolts and things http://www.seatpartsshop.co.uk/ just search the part number on the right hand side
  22. I needed to do this and came on here for a guide...all the ones on here say to remove the glass then mess about with clips to remove it. I couldn't figure this out without feeling like i was going to break something so I checked Youtube and found this.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rl0-1K8DL5I It's a polo in the video but the mirrors the same. It works perfectly and is super easy! Most of you probably already know about this, but I though it was handy!

    Gerti - My 'New' Gti

    Nice, I used to have a black one! So nice when they're clean...unfortunately doesn't last too long! Have to agree on disliking the original Steering wheel. Tempted to get a Lupo 3L one for mine!

    Hello from Sheffield

    Nice car, quite like those wheels! I'm around Sheffield/Barnsley fairly often, I'll have to keep an eye out for it!
