Thread: Mk5 Golf GT TDI 170

  1. #1

    Mk5 Golf GT TDI 170

    After having 8 Passats and 1 CC I decided to have a change and bought a Mk6 Golf GT TDI 140.


    It drove great and seemed in very good condition with only 1 owner, 71k miles and FVWSH (below)




    Unfortunately it has had a dubious past so I got the seller to take it back and refund me.


    Looked at a few more Mk6 Golf GT TDI's but for around £9k they were not the quality/spec I wanted so decided to buy a Mk5 GT TDI 170 (below)




    It is again a 1 owner with FVWSH and 54k with 'Luxury Pack2' 'Winter Pack' and 'Storage Pack' with mud flaps all round and a Bury bluetooth kit fitted.

    Seems very quick to me but could be due to the size difference between Passat's and the Golf.

    Cheers

    I am planning to change:

    Stereo to a SatNav system
    Fit a MFSW

    Maybe:
    Look into Xenon headlamps
    Rear lights to GTI as I believe they are tinted
    GT Sport black front grill

    I have today found out by contacting previous owner it was remapped to stage2 with a DPF removal earlier this year which explains why it felt quicker.

    You want the R32 rear lights if you want them to be tinted the GTI ones look virtually the same but expect to part with £180 for the pleasure...


    Nice motor... any more pics?

    Very smart looking motor matey, glad you're pleased with it. The 170 is a pretty potent engine in the Passat so it must be pretty awesome lugging less weight about.
    The worst thing about chocolate body paint is the bellybutton lindt.

    It is a lot quicker than I expected it to be.

    I tried to twist the mrs' arm into a remap for ours but she was having none of it! Still a rapid motor as it is, certainly upsets plenty of BMW 320d drivers
