Lovely golf and some nice touches uv done ,I always liked these but the tax put me off ,however last month I bit the bullet and bought ,,,,,,,an Audi TT 3.2 v6!!!!! Same engine , once I drove it and heard the noise I had to have it the lack of tuning potential is not the best but 250 bhp is enough for now , I don't think a remap does much to these does it ,anyway ,,,get it polished ,I need to do mine as well , phantom black is really nice when polished

Remap on the r32 will probably gain around 10bhp thats all but i have been told it does make enough difference not just to the power but the way it drives and feels after.

I would like a non res exhaust like a milltek or bsc valved one but they are abit expensive for me at the moment especially since i've got a mk2 gti aswell to work on now !

Been a while since posting in here , been busy with the little one a setting up a new business, finished my full time employment at the end of June so trying to crack on with working for myself after 22 years working for the same company !

Anyway the wife and boy have been away for the weekend so managed to finally get some time on the R32.

I didn't get the machine polisher out but i'm happy with what I have done with it in a day.........

Wash
Claybar
2 coats of Super resin by hand
1 coat of p222 carnuba wax
Wheels off to clean the calipers
Gloss tyres with Meguires endurance tyre gel.
Clean and polish exhaust tips with autoglym metal polish
Quick wipe of engine bay and finally put the forge sticker on the filter ( only had it 2 years ! )


Still to do left for another day.........

Clean insides of alloys and seal
Clean glass
Treat rubber seals and plastics
Full interior valet !


Pics.......

Nice motor ✅

I'd lose the GB, and get plain pressed plates though personally.
