Time to introduce my 4Motion, now in summer mode too!

I think I've been lurking around this board long enough without a proper introduction, so here it is!

My car is a 2007 Golf V 2.0TDI 4Motion in Black Magic Pearl
Sportline spec, including leather steering wheel, handbrake, shifter knob, canvas sport seats, sport suspension
Bi-Xenons
Cruise control (retrofitted)
Front arm rest w/ AUX-IN (retrofitted)
Climatronic
TPMS (retrofitted)
Small MFA
Trailer hitch (wasn't my choice, I never need one)
LED interior and license plate lights
Debadged w/ a 4Motion badge from a Passat 3C

Things to come:
RCD510 or RNS510, haven't decided if I need nav yet or not
MFSW, I have all the parts except the SCCM for this
OEM fogs or LED DRLs
17" or 18" BBS CHs for the summer
Eibach Sport System or coils

Yeah, that's right. The same Gen.2 Haldex system as used in the R32.

Here in Europe it's been sold with the 2.0tdi 140hp. and 2.0fsi (naturally aspirated) engines.

I hate the fact that the US gets all the ass end options on cars and even car models for that matter. Even the company that started it all offers cooler cars outside of the US.

OP i'm jealous of your car.

Here's a crappy shot of the interior. I really need to get some better ones once I get my GTI pedals and footrest.

You do realize that the GTI in Europe is $50K+ with a smaller engine?

USA gets everything fucking cheap. Plz dont complain.

A few updates from the past weeks. Sorry about the crappy picture quality, but my DSLR is in the shop for a broken image stabilizer!

Polo 6R antenna
This is a direct fit in place of the OEM whip antenna and Looks much cleaner!


RCD310 radio
Got this dirt cheap so I though why not? Also added an AUX-IN socket while I was at it and upgraded the CAN gateway to version AC.


Mtec blacked and drilled discs with Mintex pads
My rear discs were worn to minimum thickness, so I decided to replace everything in one go. I got Mtec drilled and blacked discs from the UK along with a set of Mintex pads. Haven't installed these yet as I'm still waiting for a few parts for my wheel well liners.


And just to top it off: It was -35.5'C one morning when I was driving to work!
