Sadly not long after having the car i was hit from behind and as a result has cracked my rear bumper. For the same price of repair i was offered an R-Line Rear bumper off a friend and for a bit extra a modified front bumper:

Front:

Pics of the rear to follow

Im not trying to source a set of R-Line Side Skirts and also (if they Exist) some reverse sensor blanking plates as i currently dont have reverse sensors and the new rear bumper does.

Hope you all like and i hope to have more updates soon

Nick

How much did the exhaust set you back?

Where did you source it from?

I got the Coilovers and exhaust from Awesome GTi - i cannot speak highly enough of them, friendly and fast service.

I got a considerable discount on the exhaust because i splashed over 2K on the coilovers but the exhaust retails at about £1200 for the full turbo back non res

Turns out its the sensor from the CAT as have the miltek exhaust fitted..with higher gas flow its triggered a problem. This is due to the high flow sports cat most likely

You need to buy a adaptor which sits the lambda sensor further away, tricks the ecu with lower readings. Like this one.....

What an awesome build. You've spent good money in all the right places. I had the cat back milltek on my Scirocco too. If I had the cat I'd need to go straight to stage 2 and can't afford that with my first house just been bought. When's your K04 going on? That'll be awesome!
