MK5 GTI weekend toy
« on: February 23, 2019, 11:36:59 am »
Have been wanting a new toy for the last couple of years and unfortunately Peaches and Cream didn't have the right colour in stock......

Spotted this Irish import 2dr for sale at in Christchurch and could not resist. It was fully stock to start with but that didn't last long.

Done so far:
Engine oil & filter
DSG service
Carbon canister
Stage 2 tune with map switching from Elite Motorsport NZ
3" catless downpipe
New genuine bottle opener for the centre console-a must have!

With the tune and downpipe alone it's so much fun to drive. Can't wait to bring it up to Auckland.

Well it looks like my ownership with this car has to be cut short due to an impulse buy last night....  >:D

The potential for more power was the main selling point.

Good move. Good for around 320hp without mechanical mods.
