    Panda R! - Sold!




    So after 3 months of ownership I have decided to create a build thread this won't be anything really epic or majorly exciting, but at least there is a baby list of things I can finally post up what I've done! Not planning on spending too much money and go overboard like my previous car else I would of just bought a 135i or 1m etc! This build is purely to extract best bang for buck performance and handling package with a few things that enhance the aesthetics of the car as well!

    Basically I want to build something that is simple, manageable financially, publicly on the roads & great fun on the track / spirited drives. My favorite thing about this car to date is the Jekyll and Hyde personality where it can just be a very composed and blended in daily drive but when I decide to drive around with WOT it is completely transformed especially post the tune dp & hpfp!

    Here is my original introduction thread: http://www.vwgolf.net.au/showthread....ighlight=morph

    In a nut shell I have parted with my '02 S15 with 250rwkw and took delivery of my new toy something from the continental camp, picked her up at 4:30 PM on the 28/12/11 from Burwin VW for 65k Drive away! The missus was nice enough to let me pick up the car on her birthday haha!

    Specs are: MY12 Golf .:R MKVI Candy Weiß | Recaros | 19" Black Talladega | Adaptive Chassis Control | Sunroof | RNS510 SatNav + Dynaudio Excite | Rear View Camera | Bluetooth & MDI | Manual (WTF BBQ)

    December 2011:

    April 2012:
    Autotech HPFP
    Turbo XS DP
    Custom R Center Caps
    Piano Black VW Emblems on the Front & Back

    With the TurboXS DP I'm more than satisfied with the note and sound levels so I might not end up purchasing a CBE, only negative thing I can say about it is the metalic rhaspy noise on cold starts but that is long gone after about 20-30 seconds of having the car on perhaps some would say it sounds tough though haha.

    Its been a few months since I've really done anything to the car as the snow season has redirected all my leisure / hobby funds to but I've finally gotten around into putting the NeuSpeed Sport Spring Kit on today alleged drop of 20mm at the front a 23mm at the rears loving the new stance nothing to extreme but just right
    Car has now done approximately 12,000km's

    Sept / Oct 2012:
    NeuSpeed Sport Springs (20/23mm drop [F/R])
    SPM FMIC
    NeuSpeed Hi-Flo discharge pipe
    RS4 Fuel Rail
    VF Engineering 3" Intake
    Got more catch can hosing and tidy'd up my engine bay as the previous hose i original cut / put on was a tad bit too short.
    White Carbon Wrap rear emblem insert
    GIAC Extreme tune update

    March 2013:
    OEM Plate holder delete, bog, fill & paint original holes
    Lakin Front Plate holder

    ClimAir Wind Deflector
    Porsche Engine & Radiator caps

    August 2013:
    Painted roof insert in Deep Black Pearl
    Enkei Kojin's 18x8 +45 Black, ordered since mid February '12, it's already on the car pending photos!
    Michelin Pilot Super Sports 235/40/18

    September 2013:
    Goodridge Braided Brake Lines
    StopTech Street Performance Front & Rear Pads
    DBA Club Spec 4000 T3 Slotted Front Rotors (42808s)
    DBA Street Series T2 Slotted Rear Rotors (2809s)
    Motul RBF 600 Brake Fluid
    GFB DV+ Diverter Valve


    Performance One day I may look at the neuspeed charge pipe to free up the last restriction there!

    Handling / Suspension Swaybars would be the last thing I'd probably look at further down the track, in the handling department.

    Brakes Completed!

    Shoes Completed!

    Aesthetics Completed!
