Wilsons Candy White 6r GTI

Recommended Posts

rouletwilson

Finally got myself a GTI!

Been looking about for a while after owning my 9n3 TDI for 3 years.

Ended up Driving to Lincoln to pick it up, and instantly I'm in love with the thing

Spec:

2012 Polo 6r GTI 180bhp

Candy white

RCD310 Headunit with parking assist

Comfort Pack

Connectivity Pack

Cruise Control

VW Hands free kit

Monza Shadows

Bi-Xenon Headlights with cornering assist

My current plans are to just enjoy the car and get used to it first.

After driving my 9n3 with rubbish TA Tecnix coilovers, this things luxury for me!

But in time I'm hoping to get some AP coilovers wacked on, Thinking about Merc or Porsche wheels, Custom Straight through exhaust and possibly take it to stage 2 (intercooler, intake etc.)

Well things have started happening with the GTi

Got myself a couple of ebay purchases, front splitter and carbon effect paddle shifters. Quite impressed with how both of them look!

Also managed to swap my Dare RS Reps for some Artec 2piece splits, 8J fronts and 9J rear. Both ET35

Was worried they would be too wide at first but after a test fit i was happy with how they sat. Only problem now is they are very tight to the strut at the front so I'm worried they may not clear when i have coilovers on

Pics of the test anyhow

9J isnt too bad, coilovers and stretch and they should sit nicely

FK Silverlines on order from venom motorsport

Booked in for a CAT Back exhaust at Custom Pipes Doncaster today, ill upload a video of the differences

Plans next are to get some carbon fibre work done, Mate of mine at Power Projects (Find them on Facebook for flocking, wrapping etc, speak to Luke!) has started carbon skinning so hoping to get my splitter, rear diffuser and side skirts finished in the weave!

Cheers, Joshers

Well Venom motorsport are useless, ordered FK Silverline coilovers over a month ago and heard nothing from them. Every time i called they just said they would call back with information... never called back.

In the end i just got my money back because the service i recieved was shocking. Rang DPM and he told me FK were having problems with machinery in germany... why couldnt Venom just tell me that?!

In the end i just ordered some H & R 35/55mm lowering spring, just needed some quick lows for VW fest, once FK have things sorted i will order the silverlines again and hopefully get them haha!

Pics to follow soon with springs & Wheels fitted

Looks awesome so far👍

Just got myself some 35/55 springs, it genuinely sits pretty well!

Unlucky on the service from venom too!!

Just wondering what splitter that is? I see them about but I don't know where to get one! And whether you have to take the oem splitter off that comes on the rline and gti😁 thanks

Ah i see! no mine didnt have that? Looks like the bumpers are completely different.

Mine has like 2 sort of points on the bottom of the bumper where as yours is pretty smooth and rounded

I Think the standard splitter on that looks good though! why not get the centre bit carbon skinned?

Too late🙈 I ordered the other splitter, it's just a couple of screws to take out the centre part of the oem splitter! Should be okay(: Thanks for the help!👍

Been pretty busy lately! Got myself some H&R springs fitted. Really impressed by these, nice lows and really stiff for springs!

Went to fit my Artecs but they ended up leaking thanks to a really poor build from the previous owner. So had to strip them down and re-seal them myself.

Took the lips off to find hardly any sealant and paint between the faces. Had to remove all this, sand it back, tap all the bolt holes. Re-polished all the lips starting from 400grit right to 1500. Then onto autosol. To finish I bought some nice gold bolts!
