Project car 2018 Golf GTI
« on: February 08, 2019, 06:17:06 pm »
So its time for something new, our 09 MK5 3 door has just been the most awesome & reliable car for the last 5-6 years we've owned it and considering its now 10 years old still relatively low km's at just 82k
Anyway I've been looking for a mk7 3 door for some time but pretty much impossible to come by in NZ as they were never imported and Japan is all 5 door as well......what to do......MK8 will see the 3 door dropped all together so its now or never.
After looking at a lot of options I found a 2018 Candy white 3 door 7.5 face lift with only 10km's on the clock, no not 10,000 just 10km  >:D
Downside was its DSG when we really wanted a manual as that's what we have now, deal was too good to pass up so late last year it was purchased and shipped.
After a lot of thinking I've decided to bite the bullet and do a manual swap, crazy I know but why not!
Something satisfying about pulling a brand new car apart, anywho motor and box out, dash out etc etc
Next week will see manual bits going back in, hopefully it all works out  ;D

Can't blame the forums, it's definitely a Google related issue.
