Rocco SS

The forum to show off your shiny or dirty new Scirocco

Rocco SS

Post15 Feb 2013 17:07

Hello, I did a thread about my car on one forum so I thought I would put it on here too.

Well in November 2012 I took delivery of my first brand new car, a Black 1.4 tsi 160 Scirocco with the factory tints...you can see my old mk5 golf still wanting some attention and sneaking in the picture there :lol: ...
Image

Within an hour it looked like this with its new wheels, some 19" black BBS LM replicas...
Image

And then a week later and I got some AP Coilovers, and the car began to look like this after being lowered 65mm at the back and 45mm at the front, as I wanted it sitting level and the front is 20mm lower than the back as standard...
Image
Image

Ignore the finger in the way on this one haha!
Image

A picture to show my ground clearance, I have very small hands so you can imagine how low it is...
Image

Looking snowy!
Image
Image

As the snow was clearing...
Image

And then over the past 2 weeks, I replaced all my interior bulbs with these white LED's
Image
I like the look of white/blue tint dipped beam bulbs but chavs ruin them for the rest of us, so I thought I will get pure white 5000k headlight bulbs and just get blueish sidelight bulbs...and [email protected] IPhone pictures dont show it that well but It looks good, nice and subtle having just the sidelights with blue.

Heres a picture of my 5000k dipped beam bulbs and bluish sidelights.
Image

Just my sidelights.
Image

Interior shot with the white LEDs
Image
Also in the last two weeks I got an AMD custom Cat-back..Kept the exhaust tips looking fairly understated and standard looking with the twin pipes, but it sounds amazing.
Image

Also done a few VAGCOM tweaks!

I have some plans but being 18 really puts a limit on what I can do (insurance etc) but all I really want to do is get some wheel spacers and a few other things which i will keep quiet for now!

Excuse the s#!t IPhone pictures

Same, I am scared of the reps but I thought why not! I have money to get a set of decent wheels if they do break just thought it would be worth a punt haha :)

Yes there are ones for cheap on ebay that dont throw up a error even on the sciroccos tricky canbus system.
w5w/501 is the bulb type for the front reading lights, glovebox light and footwell lights (and sidelights if you want, these come out bluish in the sidelights and white on the interior, weird)
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/270991056205? ... 1439.l2649

then its a 38mm festoon (39mm works too, thats what i got) for the rear reading light and both vanity mirrors.
And then if your interested its a 42mm festoon for the boot light.

See above for the bulbs. And they arent like bluefin. Bluefin is a removable remap that actually alters the map on the ECU whereas a tuning box is fitted inbetween the ECU and engine as a second ECU kind of, so that you do not modify the actual ECU and (a good box) leaves no trace so therefore does not invalidate warrenties.

A tuning box will take you to 200/205bhp, a stage 1 remap could even get you about 220bhp, so with a few mods you could hit 240 probably mate!

Yeah, you need to make sure they are error-free bulbs or they will not be compliant with the canbus system mate

Are those figures based on your 160bhp then? Ive tried researching what the power benefits are for the 210hp engines but cant rlly find anything. Even looked on the DTUK website but it just say increase throttle response...??

Yes the figures are for my 160 mate
DTUK only do a throttle response kit for petrol engines, they only do a tuning box for diesels, DTS and TMC are the better of the petrol tuning boxs i have heard, with DTS giving 205bhp from a 160.

For a remap you would be looking at about 270bhp for your 210 scirocco...however with a tuning box you will only recieve about 250bhp.

Also with a remap with additional mods you could probably hit 280bhp in your car...however tuning boxs are not necessarily designed to work with additional modifications.
