Hi all

Jamal here from London

Recently purchased a Candy White Golf GTI MK6 dsg, Came from a manual 2011 Audi a5 coupe 2.0 TFSI. I wanted something fast, convenient, family friendly, 4 door, 'COOL' and something the Mrs can also drive too... Whats better than a Golf GTI?

The car is Fully loaded it has the following extras, DSG gear box, Full Heated leather seats, RNS510 system, Sat Nav, Bluetooth, Dynaudio sound system,18" diamond cut shadow Monza wheels, Cruise control, drive select, dual climate control, electric Sunroof, power fold wing mirrors, Xenon headlights, DRL, R20 rear lights, red calipers, APR Carbonio intake

I've done a few things to it already such as the following-

-Removed the front number plate holder and plastic welded the number plate holes on the front and back of the bumper
-Painted the centre bumper (below the grill) to candy white to match the body as I didn't like the gloss grey effect that comes from factory
-Full machine polish/paint correction and thorough detail inside and out
-VCDS coding (Beep on lock, mirror tilt on reverse, big Speedo display in MPH, needle sweep etc)
-Painted the rear diffuser gloss black
-GTI door seals/scuff plates all round
-LED reverse bulb, Interior lights and Puddle light
-GTI seat lever insert
-Paddle shifter extensions

I have a few mods I plan to do very soon, so watch this space!

I want to keep it simple and classy but still effective-

Such as the following-

-Stage 1 remap
-Front splitter
-Rear diffuser add on with big fins (Maxton Design)
-Bigger exhaust tips
-Resonator delete (dsg farts!)
-R20 side skirts
-Gloss black roof wrap
-Rear parking sensors
-Gloss black wing mirrors
-wheel spacers (20mm all round)
-Spoiler extension

Hope you like it, Feedback is welcomed

Cheers all!

Looks good! I like it, welcome! I just found the Maxton addon wings online last night, and I'm also looking into getting them. Someone on here has got them, and they seem to fit mostly alright.
