Looks good. Not keen on the chrome on the boot tho.
Yeah I'm in two minds as to take it off or not. Going for a red and black colour style on the car so thinking of getting the badges black. Then tomorrow will be putting on my Matt black BBS RS wheels :)

If you're going black and red, maybe wrap the strip in black to match the diffuser?

Could look good :)

Sounds like a good idea! May have to have a play around on photoshop and see what it looks like :)

Just added double din kit using the pioneer app radio 2 out of my previous car. Looks much better than the standard unit!

Looks really nice mate

I fitted my neuspeed p-Flo last week

Sounds like darth vader is in the glove box with all the sucking and whooshing noises from the cone filter lol

I'm getting my 3" turbo back fitted Friday at exhaust uk.... Then the week after I was hoping to get booked in at statller in Sheffield for a stage 2 map.

I've emailed them and Facebook messaged them to see if they can fit me in then but as of yet, I ain't heard owt back.

Who's doing the map for you?

Statller do REVO and GLAC maps so I'll go with either.

Nice, I'm not sure if I'll go the turbo back exhaust or just get a sports cat for stage 2.

I'm going for Revo for my map as they are 2 minute drive up the road from me, and had their software on my golf before. Plus I know the manager and one of my mates work there, so got some discount :)

They are a fantastic car. Had the stage 1 remap on for a week now and it's how it should've been out the factory!
