best way to put a photo on here is to load it to a third party server and paste a link in your post.

So,

I bought a Mk5 GTi for my partner for Christmas, If Iīm honest it was a bit of an impulse buy because someone at work was selling it and we needed another car due to the recent Death of her Altezza!

Itīs a 5 door Japanese import in White with 128K on the clock

I like VW and drive an Amorok daily, we have had two Passatīs in the past but never have considered a Golf. Anyway, this one became available and apart from some minor wear and tear to the interior and two kerbed alloy wheels it is truly very tidy indeed. There is very little service history but given that it looks to have been very well cared for and that the price was right I thought we would give it a go.

So, I need to get the thing fully serviced including Cam belt and DSG Gearbox flushed and am looking to get some recommendations for a place in Auckland that knows these cars.

My plans for it are to fix the cosmetic bits and leave it as standard, she loves the car already and it has more than adequate grunt to keep us both happy :-)

I have already removed the gear stick surround and repainted it, now looks great. Iīve ordered new switches for the windows / mirror and bought a very cheap set of  original alloys to swap out the 2 that are kerbed.

Next is a full service as mentioned and replace the head unit with an Apple Car Play unit.

Iīll try to put a picture up :-)
