looks great mate!! defs recommend the h&r kit. i went for the super sports and they handle well, a bit stiff but great for aggressive driving. Need to do stage 1 on my car soon too, but in no rush - think I'm going to go with Revo.

waiting on some parts first then will be posting some pics of my mk6

Absolutely s**tty tune. made the car faster for sure. but deliver power like a bag of balls, and seriously confuse the DSG box which drives perfectly fine and smoothly on the stock map, but I suppose I am picky. most Tune customers would probably just enjoy the Turbo rush feeling and not notice the excessive Spike in the boost curve and the very quiet pinking..

Thank f*ck I didn't have to fork out the exorbitant amount pile of hand held rubbish.

Car looks great Lee!

Thanks for the feedback Anton, good to hear not just the positive news about the product. Could it be the tune was for a standard GTI instead of a ED30?

My little stormtrooper, heading to Auckland from Australia in a couple of weeks.  Bought brand new in 2011, Stage 1 tune, DSG, ACC, Bluetooth, leather interior, sunroof, bought with the black 19s but since got rid of them as they were soft as butter on regular roads.  Went down to an 18 recently which is much more compliant and not so prone to buckling

2011 Model
Ive owned it for six weeks. First GTI I have owned.
Ive tinted front driver/passenger window.
Matt Black vinyl wrap on the wing mirrors.
De badged the boot.
Ive ordered the Cobb Accessport and intake, once that arrives ill remove the cat and put a 3inch downpipe which im sure will open it up a bit. It already Struggles to get traction in first and second as it is with no mods.

Looks good. Best colour for a MK6 GTI.
If you are struggling for grip I would suggest 2 things.
1. Get decent rubber.
2. Replace your LCA bushes with an anti lift kit. There are a few around, Powerflex, Superpro, Whiteline.

1+2 makes a huge difference, beware no. 2 will introduce more cabin noise

I did mine because the old ones were split and replaced them with the SuperPro bushes. I didn't really notice any difference in NVH

Welcome, spoke to you on facebook a couple times.

Just so you are aware.
Having gone Cobb + their intake.
If you chose to get tuned else where ever. Their intakes do not follow OEM intake internal diameter
So will experience issues with fuel trims, which you need to advise any other tuner building your files.

Hopefully you are using the Cobb AP are you considering using an external tuning source and not their own files?
I would be very interested in what the reasoning was for going Cobb thou.

Always very interested in choices made.

Post by: Mark-169 on September 29, 2017, 11:54:28 pm
Hi GLIDN.
On further research, the cobb intake is only for the left hand drive gtis, so flagged this one and have just put in the order for the cobb accessport at this stage thru dynotech as they are now the nz supplier.
The Cobb system looks like a good starting point, and I like the fact you can have different maps for say 95 and 98 fuel, high and low boost and stock standard. Plus it has boost guages, shift lights, adjustable launch control rpm all on the accessport which i thought was pretty cool.
