TinyGiant MK6 2.5L Golf Construct Thread | VW Vortex


Bought a Base Golf two days in the past. I’ve been working mk1s for about 15 years and determined it was time for a change. Final summer time I bought my Cabby and acquired a mr2 spyder. I fully ignored the dearth of area within the mr2, being blinded by the enjoyable issue. So I bought the MR2 and determined it was time to get again in a VW. I like mk1s, and particularly Cabriolets, however wanted a break from them. My final cabby I changed and modded nearly the whole lot together with airlift. I made a decision I most likely wont do air trip once more. It introduces a reasonably finicky system into the automotive, having one more merchandise to take care of. If I contact the suspension I’ll most likely go along with a superb set of coilovers.

A pair years in the past I had a 2009 tiguan. It was a fwd, 2.0T 6spd. I shortly grew bored of it, hated the 6spd and the turbo lag. So this time round I knew I needed to go NA and 5spd. After every week of scouring FB market I used to be capable of finding a 2013 2.5L 5spd golf with 133k for $5300. It’s a little tough across the edges, however mechanically effectively maintained. It has a model new clutch, brakes, tires, headliner, battery, brakes, chain tensioner, paint, and trans fluid. A coworker and I drove 2.5hrs north to seize it, purchased it and drove it residence with out situation.

Yesterday I began going via it and making a listing of points and desires.

Found Points:
-wipers all shot
-coolant degree low
-wiper fluid low
-Entrance seat foam compressed, lacking bolt on body on the driving force seat. I’m curious in the event that they took the seats out to hoover, or if he had different seats within the automotive earlier than he determined to listing it.
-Door playing cards beat. The rubbery fake wanting leather-based stuff on the deal with grips has peeled off on either side. Rear playing cards want material reglued.
-Cig lighter burn on useless buttons by shifter
-Hood prop wants changing
-Tail mild hatch covers lacking.
-Entrance left marker mild gap too huge. It appears to be like like any individual might have broke it attempting to take away the previous ones after which filed the opening to make it appear like the appropriate measurement. Included had been two model new smoked aspect markers. So I both have some plastic welding to do or discover a new entrance bumper.
-Paint job not that good.
-Small cracks in sprint on left aspect.
-Spidering on rear bumper.
-interior wants a strong element.
-the sun shades cowl within the dome mild is damaged on one aspect.
-headlights want a refinishing

Issues I wish to do:
Consumption and beetle engine cowl
Exhaust (awe or customized borla w/resonator)
Sub. (Single 10 RF p300-10)
Wheels (will search for Audi peelers)
Carplay
Oil change
Doable swap of full inside if I can discover a low cost good inside.
Coilovers.

I actually needed a white Golf, however this was $1000-2000 cheaper than all of the others and it had higher upkeep historical past.

I discovered a carplay unit and the sub I need and made presents on ebay. Right this moment I’m going to a neighborhood junkyard in hopes to discover a gti or golf I can begin snagging elements from.
