Hey!

I got myself a GTI 11/5-18 after placing the order the 22/12-17

Took delivery with plastic etc still on and made the detailing myself, doing a full wash followed by a polish and ceramic 2layer coating. The result is amazing! I also managed to get the car without any holes for licensee plate drilled, so plates removed and the front is smooth!

Ive done a few mods that I think enhanced the looks of my car like it should have been from the factory.

Milltek non-resonated exhaust with carbon tip.
H&R Springs with H&R 15mm spacers in the rear.
Rear wiper delete.
Philips H4 LED.
Osram LED indicator bulbs.
Ebay foglight LED.



Ive done some videos of the exhaust and some footage from this weekends trackday aswell.

Looks top class! You are making a proper use of it. Any errors with the LEDs? Any future modifications planned?Edited by: Rough

Looks great although I just love the look of the standard wheels. Its funny that you get the rear wiper delete option - may well have opted for that myself had it been available here. Exhaust sounds good as well and is definitely something I will consider. Im also hoping to get involved in a newly established Autocross competition here in Scotland.

Thanks! Actually the leds makes errors, but only visble via faultcode.
The H4 needed a philips decoder to work 100% else they had a strobe feature while the car was running. Extremly annoying! No other mods planned right now, but im always open for suggestions!
Been thinking about tuning but I would lile a downpipe and hfc ans go stage2 in that case, hopefully milltek has something coming out soon?

I really like he wheels as well, they are going on the car again, the OZ are only for track use with the semi slicks.
Wiperdelete is aftermarket, killallwipers. Looked better than I thought! Nice! Its superfun, but there most be a way to kill the esp completly. Had it turned of vvia vcds at the track but not the autocross, but even then it engages quite hard. Even with semi slicks.

Thank you.
Looking on the internet, I find Milltek SSXVW487 for Up 90CV ...
It's probably the same, it's OK for GTI too.
The sound is very beautiful!

I purchased Milltek SSXVW487 and it's shipping.
I heard the sound, and I had to buy it immediately.
The car should be produced next week, the 27.
Little time is missing!! I can't wait it anymore!!

Hi,
No the Lambda sensor is on the not removing part.

Ye I know, my exhaust was fitted in beggining of June.
But I'm questioning where the CAT and where the particle filter is.

particle filter has the lambda sensors and this is situated right by the turbo

then further down after the flex joint is an inline CAT which doesn't have any sensors plugged into it, so in theory this could be removed and straight piece fitted to free up the back pressure and aid flow
