That's a good list. Add air and fuel filters and you should be set.

Misread. You are good on the dsg service then. Can't service something you don't have. 😂

Glad you're safe. I just got my GTI about a month ago. Time flies lol.

Coming from other forums (SVTPerformance,LRodder) search always helps. There's a stupid questions thread though haha. Great group of guys here from the month I have been here.

you really lucked out on the tires. maybe the previous owner was someone on here? or at least some form of enthusiast. it's not often that you just see upgraded summer tires on stock wheels. usually it's the other way around.

have you checked to see if the car is tuned yet? stage 1/2 will be pretty even with a 350. i'd be surprised if you felt the car in stock form was faster. may want to check before you go try to pay for it again.

also, how has nobody mentioned the water pump?

Is there any way of me knowing it was already modded to stage 1 by myself? Like any signs?

I noticed the clear sidemarkers. Those are aftermarket.

And yes the water pump! Biggest problem with these cars by far. Google it. Most common failure on this car by far. Nothing you can really do about it though except monitor coolant levels and check for drips. Someone correct me if I'm wrong here..
