Bugger!
What are you going to replace it with?

All depends on what the insurance company offers me. If another Ed30 comes up maybe one of them but also potentially a s3

Here's the front of mine.



Just makes it over the little drop off the asphalt.

Got a few goodies, mostly cosmetic - faux-german but actually nice Japanese stainless catback (once I got the hole welded up), brand new michelin pilot sport's, ED30 gear selector, aftermarket lighting, new front plastic bits, bunch of interior lighting done, slightly lowered on some springs, auto dimming rear mirror and a few other bits of kit.
Also some aftermarket intercooler piping & a weirdly setup silent BOV.

To be done:
Less chrome more black on the outside (badges, maybe some smoked lights instead of the aftermarket glossy ones I've got, maybe repaint the standard rims to black, slight window tint). Would eventually like to put a tune on it but wanna get the supporting bits first. Seeing as I've already got 1/2 an exhaust I'm tempted to put the front half of it on there.
Need to remove the BOV as well and fix some interior rattles.

Pretty stoked, still a little sad I didn't get a manual but the DSG is a good compromise for a single car household.

Might aswell jump in to this late.

I'm cruising a '08 mk5 GTI in Black.
Running 18" Black BGW Entice wheels with a 225-40-18 tyre.
Full interior LED's plus puddle and NP lights.
Blacked out VW badges.
Ramair cold air intake.

Looking to get a decent exhaust set up as soon as possible.

No decent photos unfortunately
