The Chisel's 2010 GTI 2dr 6MT Black Pearl Metallic

Go easy on me! I just bought a 2010 GTI! I'm new to h2o VW ownership, but I've owned a 72 Beetle for about 20 years and I grew up loving VW. Here to learn and glean from the longtimers. :)

Looks nice in that pic. Paint sure looks like its got some life in it - that pic shows plenty of gloss. I bet it would polish up beautifully.

How many miles on it?

Any idea on service history?

96k on it and tensioner is good, I had it checked before purchase by a reputable shop in town. Service history is pretty solid, water pump and intake manifold were done a while back. I think I scored a pretty good deal!

Congrats! On this note tho was the tensioner already replaced?
The stock tensioner on these cars can go out at any mileage and chain stretch.
Only sure fire way to know youre good is if it was replaced with an updated version.

Man MK6's sure do look sharp in black!!

I love the Detroit's' too just wish they were lighter.

I'll have to ask the tech. If it were an issue he would have let me know though. He looks out for the VW guys and it would have meant a job for him as well.

Raining today otherwise I’d be working on it. So I took some pictures instead.

I got some Klii inlays for Christmas so I went to work on them today. Plus, I blacked out the gti script in the grill and installed a black grill emblem courtesy of @jaypoto 😎
