Thread: Damo_V5 Build Thread

  1. #1

    Damo_V5 Build Thread

    Hi there, I would like to say I have some really nice pics of the car but the weather the last couple of weeks has not been good and has stopped me taking any good photos, so the dslr is on charge and some good photos are in the pipeline.

    For now I will tell you about my plans for the car, as the car is a V5 its already pretty quick, so I am going to concentrate on freshening up the car and making it look OEM+

    Here is the car with a few slight modifications from the previous owner.


    Modifications so far are...

    7" Double Din Sat Nav Headunit
    9" Headrest Monitors, (for the little one)
    Hertz Subwoofer and Amplifier

    Modifications to come...

    Audi 18" wheels refurbed and sprayed gunmetal grey or black.
    330mm Brake Discs and Pagid Pads, Calipers painted blue or green
    Coilovers, not decided on what to get yet, maybe Jom, Fk or Eibach, what do you guys recommend?
    New brake lines
    Chiptuning Box or remap
    New VW wheel centre caps
    Paintwork restored and polished, Rline Badges, crystal OEM Rear lights
    HID 6000k Headlight kit
    Wind deflectors
    fit private plates S15 DCJ
    LED bulbs all round
    Rline LED gearknob

    well finally fitted the headrest monitors and tidied up the double din, then the other night hit a huge pot hole and smashed my l/s front wheel and popped the tyre, so for now im running the montreal spare, the ride is not good!

    anyone recommend a cheap fix for now in regards to the wheel been repaired until I can get the 4 wheels refurbed?

    really enjoying the car atm apart form that, especially the sound of the V5, oh and I will eventually get around to uploading more pics of the car.
