djunited's GTI Progress

2009/10/16

Tinted headlights, fog lights, tail lights, reflectors, front and rear vw emblems.








2011/03/11



Installed a K&N Typhoon kit, but had problems with maf sensor not fitting properly and car going into limp mode caused by turbulence,
so i had to return it.







2011/03/21



Installed a Forge Replica DV Spacer that i enjoyed for a short while before it started to throw a fault code, so it had to go.






2011/04/30



Removed the autotech insert and went for a BSH one as the autotech made some clanking noises whenever i went in reverse.








2011/05/07



Installed an ITG Intake and wrapped the piping with foam and heat reflective tape.

Really like the aggressive look it gives to the rear end and it's much more subtle in person.
Flows nicely with the car and the Black/CSG theme i'm going with.




2012/09/25



Missing some parts on my car












More to come soon!

Installed the springs.













Some before and after shots. (excuse the dirty car)


BEFORE





AFTER





BEFORE





AFTER





BEFORE





AFTER





Note that this is directly after install so it still needs time to settle.

I like the drop, perfect for my taste and best of all there is absolutely no rubbing even with 8" wheels and 245 tires



I also got my front lower grill, rear diffuser, side skirts and mirror caps painted gloss black.

These pics will have to do for now.

Car is very dirty and camera phone isn't picking up the difference in contrast between CSG and black, but trust me the difference is there and it looks great!













Will got some better pics when it's properly cleaned.

Car looks good but you gotta lose the Vortex generators man. They serve no purpose on your car. But i guess if you like them than that's all that matters.

^^ I feel the same way, everything looks great (even the Revo stickers) but the stupid "vortex generators" on top.

Not feeling the vortex generators, also why would you want to disrupt the laminar flow over the car that soon before the rear spoiler. You are most likely creating extra lift with them placed there, though you may have dropped the drag coefficient by a tiny percent. I would trade negative or zero lift for added drag anyday.

you really need to see these in person on a mk6 to really like them. it's hard to show them well on a camera but to the eye they really look good and flow with the car well. At first i said noway i'm installing these, but then the store owner allowed me to place them just to see how they 'd look and i was sold. it's personal taste really and i'm going for aggressive instead of the more common sleeper look.

thanks for the comments

i just followed the instructions. they come with precut cardboards that you place to adjust the degree of each fin and position.

Took out my Rev "G" DV to inspect it.

Was still as good as new, but said what the hell i'll put the newer Rev "D" in.









The Rev "D" is louder than the "G" which is almost quiet.

The Rev "D" also flutters when it releases air.

The Rev "G" never did that.
