Update on mine

2011 Golf GTI
Black
DSG
17 inch denver wheels
After market GPS/Bluetooth/Radio
After market Reversing Camera
Milltek 2.75 inch non resonated cat-back & and Milltek 3 inch high flow cat Downpipe
ECU and DSG tuned (202kW/380nm)

Probably going to leave it here as far as mods go, but in the next couple months will doing some work on the paint and trim - there are some minor swirl marks and light stone scratches on the paint that will come out with a good polish and then I will put on ceramic coatings to keep it looking good

My little stormtrooper, heading to Auckland from Australia in a couple of weeks.  Bought brand new in 2011, Stage 1 tune, DSG, ACC, Bluetooth, leather interior, sunroof, bought with the black 19s but since got rid of them as they were soft as butter on regular roads.  Went down to an 18 recently which is much more compliant and not so prone to buckling

2011 Model
Ive owned it for six weeks. First GTI I have owned.
Ive tinted front driver/passenger window.
Matt Black vinyl wrap on the wing mirrors.
De badged the boot.
Ive ordered the Cobb Accessport and intake, once that arrives ill remove the cat and put a 3inch downpipe which im sure will open it up a bit. It already Struggles to get traction in first and second as it is with no mods.

Looks good. Best colour for a MK6 GTI.
If you are struggling for grip I would suggest 2 things.
1. Get decent rubber.
2. Replace your LCA bushes with an anti lift kit. There are a few around, Powerflex, Superpro, Whiteline.

1+2 makes a huge difference, beware no. 2 will introduce more cabin noise

I did mine because the old ones were split and replaced them with the SuperPro bushes. I didn't really notice any difference in NVH

Welcome, spoke to you on facebook a couple times.

Just so you are aware.
Having gone Cobb + their intake.
If you chose to get tuned else where ever. Their intakes do not follow OEM intake internal diameter
So will experience issues with fuel trims, which you need to advise any other tuner building your files.

Hopefully you are using the Cobb AP are you considering using an external tuning source and not their own files?
I would be very interested in what the reasoning was for going Cobb thou.

Always very interested in choices made.

Hi GLIDN.
On further research, the cobb intake is only for the left hand drive gtis, so flagged this one and have just put in the order for the cobb accessport at this stage thru dynotech as they are now the nz supplier.
The Cobb system looks like a good starting point, and I like the fact you can have different maps for say 95 and 98 fuel, high and low boost and stock standard. Plus it has boost guages, shift lights, adjustable launch control rpm all on the accessport which i thought was pretty cool.
