My '07 GTI a week before I purchased her back in December 2018! 167XXX and going strong. I've only done maintenance type stuff aside from the ECS tuning intake because the stock air box has a huge chunk missing that exposed the filter! Now my 13yo has her heart set on it being hers in 3yrs so I guess I'll get a MKVI or MKVII then! :biggrin:

BTW, can anybody tell me the model name of these wheels so I can track down new VW logo center caps?? Thanks!





Last pic was before/after engine bay detail before intake installed!

Here's my pride and joy. Third owner, IIRC, got it in 2014 and sitting north of 160k miles as of current.
Finally after 6 months got the K04 tune running right. Ended up being a defective new injector, threw a 30 dollar used one in and it's all better now.

Just realized I never updated this. The car got a new chain tensioner, intake valves and then balance shafts, just turned 186k.
