    Jonezy's 2.3 20v V5 170bhp

    It is a slight flat spot where they where sanded to remove the curbing. They run true and hold air fine so its all good

    I know mate haha. Even the insurance company I'm using was shocked and said I must have one of few V5s without heated full leathers. I will just keep my eye out for a cheap set. They come up fairly cheap now and again. Although I'm not supposed to be spending much on this one

    I never left mate, I just turned in to a lurker for a while Thanks mate. It is really clean, especially considering it's 17 years old. The only thing it is missing really is the heated full leather interior.

    I have been thinking about this. It sounds really raspy as it is fully stock. I still have a back-box delete pipe and S2000 air filter from my old Golf that never got fit. So might get them on. 20bhp increase on a N/A engine sounds pretty good to be honest. I've been contemplating getting a remap to iron out the flat spot that all V5's seem to have in the mid rev range.

    I agree 100%. It's an odd one. Fuel consumption isn't to bad though considering it's 2.3 litres. If driven normally it returns 27mpg around town and 35mpg on the motorway. If you drive like a boy racer then it drops to about 14mpg. I just wanted a car that was reliable for my 8 mile drive to work and back.

    Not going as low as I was in the last Golf haha. The V5 also hit 93k the other day. I never take pictures during jobs as Im always flithy. but here is some pictures of the Golf on coilovers finally.

So sent them to be powder coated in a custom dark grey with bronze flip and loads of metallic. They've come out amazing. Before... IMG_20190301_161445_059 by Adam Jones, on Flickr After...

    As you all know I killed my last MK4 and scrapped it. This is it's replacement I've had it since November last years. It's perfect for what I need really. Wanted something none turbo, reliable and petrol. Got it really cheap, 91k full service history, cruise control, bora vents, W8 interior light and fully poly bushed all round. Everything else was stock. Here is the car when I first got it...

GAZ GHA fully adjustable. No JOMs this time haha.

When i decided to get the Coilovers and alloys on.

    Sorry to hear you have to sell up. Thats a really good price can't see it hanging around for long. If I had the space I'd be all over this. GLWTS mate.

    Jonezy's MK4 Golf TDI

    The B5.5 Passats are really good cars, i remember when my Dad had a fully loaded highline one with full leather heated interior, sat nav etc. Was a really nice car. Ideally I'd like a A4 Avant Quattro S Line but like you said they hold there money really well and considering you can get a good spec Passat for cheaper it's a no brainer. Been looking at the MK4 Golf V5s and V6s as well, don't really need a diesel anymore. Whatever I get it will be similar age to my Golf anyway, they're are easy enough to work on yourself and all the sensors are basic. Newer cars just seem to get more an more complicated with extra sensors etc. and the build quality went down drastically with the B6 Passats. They just don't feel as well built as the B5.5's. I'm just going to hold out and wait for something good condition to come up.

    I have been looking at the B5.5 Passats, yours looks nice sitting sweet there mate. Been looking at loads of cars to be honest, want to stay VAG tho. Decent A4 Avants seem to be overpriced for there age tho. I'm just going to wait for either a B5.5 Passat estate or MK4 Golf estate to come up, I'm being really picky tho haha.

    Not yet mate, had a few people interested tho. Just waiting for them to get back to me.

    No messing here haha. Still loads of stuff available tho. I don't think it helps with it being so close to Christmas.

    I've been looking at those as well I really like them. Golf is looking sorry for itself now, not much to take off it before scrapping it... IMG_20181028_111915 by Adam Jones, on Flickr
