    MVO's TTE480 MK6R

    Hey guys,

    Thought I'd start a bit of a build log for my car. I purchased the car from a used car dealership December 2014 (Christmas present to myself).

    91,000kms on the clock when purchased. No special options, the car was literally stock.
    2011 Rising Blue MK6 Golf R DSG. Has a bit of hail damage from the storm that hit late last year, nothing too crazy just a few dints here and there.

    Had it for about 3 months before I actually purchased anything for the car.

    First mod was the Flow Designs Front and Side lips.


    Initially was too far out so I moved it back.

    Still a bit far out but I haven't had a chance to play with it.


    This would be my second modification to the car. Mates gave me this as a birthday present.



    I went for a few mountain runs with my mates when I first got the car and didn't like the ride height of it so I started chasing some coilovers. Have always preferred low cars.


    Ended up picking up a set of Weitec coilovers with front camber tops. I opted to not use the camber tops and installed the coilovers with the standard tops from the stock suspension and standard rubber for the rears (not using the lowering sleeves) car is extremely comfortable, you don't even notice that it has coilovers installed especially being non damper adjustable.

    Bought some new rims for the car and test fitted them.
    18x9 et20 Avant Garde's M220 in silver.


    Have always been a fan of these wheels since seeing them on other forums, will be painting the centres, just unsure on colour. Fitment wise, I have lined up a pair of 25mm wide front guards to compensate for the fronts, they will be installed sometime in the near future. The rears, I've contacted the Australian supplier for these wheels and will be purchasing a pair with a smaller offset.

    I have purchased a Tarmac stage 1 tune and Tarmacs intake. Initially I was going to run a aftermarket dump pipe as well and get it tuned to stage 2 but after long talks with Tarmac I have opted to not go that option but instead run a completely different setup which should be in the car at the end of July.

    Currently sitting at 108kms. She's booked in for a full major service, timing belt, water pump, the works, with BPS Capalaba at the end of July of then she goes straight to Tarmac to play with for a week. Just gathering parts for the build, hopefully all goes well!!



    Stay tuned!

    Mike.
