2008 Golf 5 GTi DSG: coilovers in...

Postby araf69 » Mon Mar 26, 2012 3:03 pm

Decided to start a ride thread after long. After i sold my citi with ADY motor. i really wanted a mk1 so i bought this last year end of June after much hunting. The CD wheels actually suit the car. The day I went to view/buy her
Image
Image
humble 2e motor. previous owner installed in back in 2004. he owned the car since 2000. I'm the 3rd owner
Image
first thing i did when i bought her, replaced the debaged grill and put OEM lights all round and indicators
Image
Image
replaced the cluster as the car cluster came with the analogue clock. previous owner said he changed months earlier because the the original cluster is wasn't working. This cluster is from my old GT I had
Image
after owning the car for a month decided to run it at matuba drags, 16.4s quatermile with stock 2e motor and street tyres

Looking very neat. The CD 16V wheels actually look good. But please, make a plan with those Opel badges on the caps.

Thanks. I actually got the cluster years ago with the needles painted red. This is the VDO mk1 cluster. The needles are painted untidy, and the cluster glass needs cleaning. Going to installed an external water temp gauge as well soon as the gauge in the cluster never worked
