James's Mk7

5 posts in this topic

Not been very active on this forum, so I thought I'd get a project thread going for my Mk7...

Above is how it started, completly standard...added a J1, Heko wind deflectors, 15mm Eibach spacers all round, Milltek cat-back (because the tailpipes are nicer than the Mountune system...and it was a steal!)

I also upgraded the brakes using M-tech disks, Greenstuff pads, HEL lines and ATE Superblue fluid, all this will be getting swapped for the 300mm upgrade when funds allow.

I then added Eibach springs...

I love how it sits, finally its most recent couple of mods being a Steeda short shifter and my new powder coated wheels... from a Mondeo ST200

I am really happy with it at the moment...C & C welcome

Thanks for looking

James

How have you found the upgrade to the brakes? I'll be after a new set for mine soon and those choices sound ideal, how much did it set you back?

The car looks good but I actually prefer the standard wheels believe it or not. As for the short shift how's that feel?

I like the brakes, definite improvement over the standard step up, all in it ran me about £200 for the parts plus a couple of hours labour to fit.

The short shift turns the shift into an almost rifle bolt, I love it and it wasn't too hard to install

Those wheels look EPIC. They are so rare in South Africa. Good job.
