I've just bought a black 1999 Golf GTI 1.8T.

Before I got it I had plans for some body kit and a maybe a GAIC/REVO chip. But after reading these forums I'm not so sure it will be so easy down here in NZ. Plus I think I like my car the way it is anyway. Maybe I'll still install a chip, but it will probably just frustrate me driving in traffic, would be great for any trips down country though.

I'm still pretty keen to install an old laptop for a media player, I'm investigating this now.

2001 Silver V6 4Motion.

I bought it completely standard, and planned to keep it that way apart from maybe some 17's and tints.
However, I've now fitted:

R32 front bumper
Carbon fibre bonnet
18" TMW alloys, with 225/40 tyres
Vogtland lowering springs
EIP short-shifter
EIP trans-mount (dogbone)
Straight-thru 2-1/2" rear muffler
Brembo cross-drilled rotors
Tinted windows
Phatnoise 20Gb mp3 hard-drive (works through factory head-unit)

I also have a Haldex Controller, which I haven't had time to fit yet (hopefully within the next week) and an EIP Stage 2 Turbo Kit, with the following:
Turbonetics Ball Bearing Turbo
Front mount intercooler
A'pexi boost controller
GReddy blow-off valve
Turbosmart external wastegate
Head-stud kit
Autometer boost gauge
K&N Filter

I thought you cancelled the EIP turbo kit?  Did it finally turn up?  And looks like you've already fitted it?

Have you dynoed it yet or checked the air/fuel ratio?

Yes, I contacted them in order to cancel the kit, and suddenly they were very apologetic, and promptly managed to assemble everything for me. I even talked them into a free Haldex Controller (US$899), due to their poor customer service and the excessive wait.
I have all the parts, but haven't fitted it yet. I took the above photo after a trial fit of the intercooler to ensure it'd fit behind the bumper.

No major mods planned, maybe just darker tints and rear spoiler.
