My Daily Commuter • Golf MKV GT

Hello everyone. This thread is about my daily drive. It is a Golf MK5 in anthracite grey bought sometime ago and always in the family. I had it in the past for track use, however when I took over my Big Turbo Audi, some of you know in here, I let this one stay in the family, although I always liked it for me. Just bought a new A3 TDI some days ago, so this one, had to come back to my hands and become my daily commuter.

Here are some photos taken of it. I think you will like what I will do with it.

Started like this.



A lot of dirt on the car and non care signs by my father







So I gave it some TLC to change that.

Started by debadging it for a clear rear end.






Then a small detail..from this



To this




Removing unnecessary weight



And after a detail session with the known procedures,car got some of its old dignity back.





RS4 replicas, soon to be replaced



Some scratches and swirls under the Golf and Gt logo.



Nothing my sweet Kestrel can cope with - some DA love with 3M Extra Fine Compound







Perfect!






Then it was time to do something I had also done in the past - de-wipering the rear end










Now we are getting somewhere

Some more info about the car.

It is running
-ECU Software Upgrade for some time now, had made almost 230hp back in time
-63mm Catback Exhaust
-Audi S3 8p FMIC InterCooler
It also had a Cold Air Intake in the past, however it is now on stock air box. We shall see if I will do it again.


Exterior-wise the car has had some changes too
-CARACTERE rear wing
-Debadged
-Black emblems and mirrors
-OEM GTI Side Skirts
-OEM GTI rear valence
-Parktronic system
-Llumar Window Tint
-FK Headlights with Xenon fitted in main and dipped beam

Interior wise, pretty much stock with all the extras it came with, except for some details like carbon fiber knob, alcantara shift boot, HERTZ 3-way speaker set. In pretty good shape too, except for some defects from daily use while i didnt have it. All will be fixed though, you know me.

Then it was time to fit my glossy black OZ Ultraleggeras in 8x18 ET45 fitment. After all, these wheels were initially bought for this Golf



Yeap, much better now





Some photos with the photographer's MK6





And a shot of its lovely interior



Cheers
