this is the 1.4 mk4 that i used to have.
i got rid of this car due to it been rubbish tbh lol
i then needed to get a newer car that will be more reliable.
after alot of mooching about i found this car.
a 1.4 TDi Sport with every extra except leathers.
in mint conditon.
after staying standard for about a week i replaced the exhaust with the exhaust from a skoda fabia vrs.
(the exhaust tip still hits my bumper on bumps though )
then nothing happened to the car for a month or so as i'm only a poor 19 yr old apprentice.
after owning the car for 2 months the tracking was so badly out that my tyres were bald down to metal on the insided so i needed new tyres.
a perfect oppotunity to invest in some new shoes.
found these BBS II split rims for sale in excellent condition:
only problem was they had mahusive tyres on.
got the correct tyre size on them, and put the on the car:
now the car looked like a tractor but as i needed to get to work on the crap A180 road that was ok with me!!
then whilse browsing the internet i found a votex full body kit.
as i have been looking for one for a long time i decided to buy as the price was low to say the least.
included all parts and fitting instructions and fitting kit. (with rock hard glue )
this price also included painting too. and what a good paint job also i must add
this is sat in my garage though until i can get it to a bodyshop or the weather warms up to fit it.
then the problems started:
firstly my injectors decided to break, VW charged me nearly 500 to fix.
but now runs smoothly.
then on the way home from work my front suspension spring decided to break.
not only did it break but also came off the car, just missing the bmw that was overtaking me.
and as i needed new springs and bearings on the car i decided this was the best time to introduce my cars underneith to the floor.
lowering kit went on, lowering the front approx -60mm and back about -50mm.
this picture shows the gap (still a big gap) in the arch and my poorly alloy.
the centre cap got stolen, and the polished lip has also died.
nothing i do to it removes the sh!t that is on it. (maybe a few tips to get it shiny again here )
the zebra, ha ha.
then i got the votex kit fitted:
the car stayed like this as i was skint tbh lol
but one weekend i got bored and decided i wanted a sliver front grill..
can also see my shark fin aerial.
few recent pictures after a polish too:
i don't know from these pictures if you can see but the paint on my grill and aerial isn't a 100% match to my car so i shall be re doing it this weekend.
also be doing the scuff on my bumper and my reverse sensors.
the next plan is to do something like this:
i then got a custom code remap when at GTi International, now running at 107.4 BHP but i need a PD160 air intake, green filter and strut brace (sell me them? )
also have 20mm spacers but no recent pics, the back is wide now
good or bad
