i'm fairly new here, this is my first vw but I have been playing with cars since i was 17. Ive had a 205 that i dropped at 406 v6 in and a mini cooper with an s engine plonked in, so i know my way round a spanner set
I picked this up in stoke on trent with a very respectable 70k on the clock and immaculate inside and out, Full VW history and no mods. A clean slate :-)
it has the usual "highline" stuff
full leather (not recaro unfortunately)
so onto the modifications -
first off cruise control was needed, the v6 is not a frugal beast.. so this was my plan to save some doe.
For such a simple thing, the stalk installation is a pita.. you need super long arms to reach where to plug in the loom, and hope the wipers arn't seized on.. but all went well and activated with vcds, we were away!
(im sure we all know what the stalk looks like so i wont bore you)
Next up the carbon came out, that wood is VILE! after an afternoon of burning myself with a hairdryer, the interior was transformed
also took out the lovely cassette deck and replaced it with my spangly flip out all singing all dancing HU
and whilst in there dropped in some bora vents that i picked up for 30 quid.. the centre vents are glued in that position but i can always get a better set at a later date.
along with a polo chrome euro switch it looks more modern already! (oh and sock boy came along)
plus LED's all round in the lights
next up those clocks are vile.. from this....
thanks to b4dvw for supplying them and ard helping with the programming
we now have FIS ... passat foils and rings.. they look so much better.
after much deliberation and lack of funds, the gear know just wasn't matching... the only wooden thing left, luckily up popped a mk5 one for 6 quid..
after a little bodge, the gaitor from mine and the top for the new one were one.. and now we have..
now moving outsite...
popped some fk coilies on and now i have a car and not a barge
and a nice stance ready for some better alloys =]
up front the carbon came out and the grille has been done.. not sure about it but got some black angel eyes coming so we shall see, oh and got a bra on
round the back the black paint came out for the sharan boot badge... much tidier.
you may have noticed the cheeky pressed plates too with surrounds, complimented by led's on the rear
under the hood so far ive popped on a pipercross filter but more to come later on..
got myself one of those polo stubby's too.. not that i use the radio
and finally stickers on the back.. subject to change
and suggestions would be uselful... i'm new to this so pointers would be appreciated
