Nice work, I myself have a MK5 GTi DSG, same colour as your car, I love it, totally standard of course, personally I think VW got it bang on the money with the GTi. I love your interior, never seen that before. Hopefully we get some decent weather soon so I can get mine up to a decent standard.

I have my eyes on units. Not thinking of going for the Mk6 one, as I love my little screens which can show info, like oil temp, etc etc.

Cheers

I liked this pic a lot - here it is with minor editing

Well yes. Piece of cake. Unless you have generation #1 rear badges which are harder to paint. You can always upgrade to this one.

So, where were we. Yes. I have some more updates to show you.

Found a new package on my passenger's side this morning



I had to see what's inside it



yeaaaaaah, cf mirrors - whole replacement caps of course, not silly sticky covers





Before



And after





Again before, epic drawing, hell yeah



After



Really subtle and nice modification, I think





I have some more to show you



uploading pics later on

Cheers
