Welshv5er's V5

Post by welshv5er on Sun Mar 09, 2014 4:55 pm

Had the V5 since May 2003. Its a W reg 150BHP, bought it with just 14,000 miles on clock
Was after an 1.8T, but i couldn't resist the noise  Very Happy



Had to wait a couple of years for vw warranty to run out, soon as it did had fitted a full Milltek Exhaust  Smile  Smile 
It needed an alloy change at same time, found a set of BBS RS2's off a TT.



as it looks now with 79,000 miles.





Had to take the Monty alloys off this morning.
there not holding pressure anymore, so while a way getting redone, the TT alloys are back on.



Plans for the future..
Just to look after it really  Smile

Ah yeah, the dreaded sand. I jet washed mine off then overnight the heavens deposited some more. All clean now.

Well had a couple of free days, so treated the V5 to a machine polishing  Very Happy 
Gave it a good clay barring 1st, lifted quite a bit of tar off it !

Then hit it with the polisher ( Megs G220 ) with sonus pads and menzerna polish





The final results







Just needs a few more coats of DoDo juice blue velvet wax, Job Done  Razz

Little update on V5..
Front wishbones have been poly bushed, well worth doing  Very Happy 
2 x new rear calipers, usual MK4 problem.. And had the sump whipped off, cleaned out & oil pickup cleaned too.
Plus added a new sticker.

Not updated for a while. Shame on me Sad
TBH the V5 has hardly moved last few months. Had to take it the garage other day, thermostat housing started to leak. Had it serviced the same time.
Winters here now, so its getting tucked up again in garage till spring. Might go for a colour change with the wheels over next few months. Thinking about going BBS Gold.
