• So.. i will try to build a new thread here for my new love. :wub:
• My name is Stavros and currently living in Athens, Greece. My previous car was a Seat Ibiza Cupra 1.4 DSG as well stage 2 by RTMG Performance.
• Recently bought a MKV GT DSG from a Mercedes dealership in pretty good shape. It also has sunroof. Other than that, it is completely stock! :mad0259:



• First thing that was done today was to install 3M Tinted windows (20%). Obviously it was a basic change that made it look classy.
• I ll keep ya updated and i hope you will like what you read.

Wow, I really love the GT front-end vs the GTI. However maybe that is because there are no GT's here. Do you want to ship those used parts to me?

Probably cause there are no GT's there. It will take a fortune to ship from GR to you.. :(

- Issues Part 1

• Removed the 1din factory RCD and installed a 2din 8". The 2din is draining battery which caused the car to "die". After some research i found out that the 1in is taking power from the key ignition (on-off) and the 2din from the can-gateway.
• Τhe right way was to buy a new can but it was Saturday evening and wasnt really an option so i took power from the lighter and it worked flawlessly.
• 1 Xenon H7 was glitching and couldnt find anything else. So i bought a new battery (65AH) cause the previous one was about to die anyway and problem solved! :headbang::headbang::headbang:

• Haven't done much lately since i bought myself a new motorcycle and the weather is lovely in Greece. Keeping it safe from the "bad eyes".
• I tried carbon clean with ortho hydrogen in order to clean my engine a bit since it has 122k kmh. Saw a little difference and definitely a better sound at idling.
• Alarm button was replaced with a tinted.
• All bulbs in the interior were replaced with led.
• Bought my self a brand new custom air induction system with Ram-air filter on it just to hear it shttttttt.:happyanim:
• My brakes were painted yellow like the stripe in the front bumper to match perfectly. :headbang:

Ye indeed but a guy approached me with a good amount of money so i couldn't really resist and i bought the 7 in a good price as well. 6years younger, less miles in same price.. The only thing that i dislike is that it's a manual. I need a DSG in my life asap
