I bought this 52 plate 25th Anniversary GTi (pd150) in June 05 with 32k on the clock and loved it Left it standard for ages apart from some audio gear.
Only problem was the R32 xenons that the last owner had fitted had been badly bodged and the loom was butchered and they kept blowing bulbs and fuses
After hours of messing around i cudnt get them sorted so they went on ebay and i got a set of black angel eyes which i think suit it much better
Everything stayed standard for a few months but then i started buying PVW again and felt the urge to change stuff!
First was the usual lettering from the rear and then i had the bumper and bonnet notches filled and got a debadged grill...
The BBS RCs on the anni's are a great looking wheel IMO but the laquer peels and they start to rot I wanted to get them off and refurbed to the orignal finish but more hard-wearing (still cant find a company who will do it!)
So i bought some RS4 copies off the bay with new Toyos for a very reasonable price
Along with some jamex coilovers...
And sat it a few inches lower
Mid-summer 06 the turbo blew which apparently is a fairly common fault on the pd150 engines The blower's internals had completely collapsed and there was about 1.5 inches of lateral travel on the spindle
It was out of warranty so i had to fork out for a new unit plus fitting which skinted me and left with no car for a few weeks Anyway, got it back eventually and everything seemed fine.

Only thing i have done since is play around with a can of red tinting spray and some non-GTi spec rear lights. Look a bit "cleaner" but still not sure...
One of each:
They look different anyway - so many mk4s have either the UK or US or euro GTi rears...
Ive got some future plans including a flushed tailgate and im redoing the bonnet as the filler has sunk slightly. I'll try keeping this thread up2date!
