Salsa Red Highline (Pics now added)

Post by Dubbsley » Sat Sep 19, 2020 5:55 pm

Where do we start, after falling victim to COVID unemployment, my beloved Golf GTD had to go, but as I can’t leave any mode of transport I own standard, I had to find something I still liked & could still get my modifying fix with.

So the hunt started for a caddy, my only real stipulation was it must have AC, after a brief search I found this Highline.

Image


It’s done a few miles (131k) but overall it’s in good order, although does require some paintwork to bumpers & the bonnet.

As soon as I got it home I was on eBay putting plenty of items in my watch list.

1 - LED DRL’s
2 - LED number plate bulbs
3 - Cupholder insert
4 - Glove box lid
5 - Brodit phone mount

Plenty of other plans in the pipeline,
Wheels,
Suspension,
Stage 1 map &
A full paint correction & ceramic coating.

A small update & some small parts fitted.

Cup holder insert & Glove box cover.

Definitely makes a difference, holds a can perfectly.

Makes the dash look complete & more car derived.

Finally have my P/Plate on & fitted LED bulbs, had the LED units previously fitted but they kept throwing up errors, fingers crossed the bulbs work without errors.

Original candle bulbs.

A 50/50 & can see the difference.

So much brighter.

Was fed up with getting arm ache so purchased a cheap arm rest off eBay & for the price it a box ticker. Image

Fitted into the rear cup holders that are never used, sturdy enough although it does highlight that it looks like centre console is a little loose.

Nice work. How did you get on with your number plate LED bulbs.. are they error free now? I haven’t managed to find any that aren’t yet!

Nah still throwing up errors, but on closer inspection there is some corrosion on the terminals inside, so trying to locate a replacement plinth, so hopefully that will cure it.

Driving home last night & got the dreaded flashing EML & limp mode, a quick scan using Carista showed the following

Back to the dealer she goes for it to be sorted as it’s in warranty.

Yea that’s what I’ve seen & what the guy at the dealer said. At least I’m not footing the repair bill.

Today has been a good day collected my van after having the faulty injector replaced. All appears to be good

Changed my DRL’s from the factory position to now using front fogs & also changed the light percentage, all done using Carista.

Personally the dimmer the rear number plate lights are the better for me, on my old impreza I even put infra red leds in as well as the standard lamps so it looked legit but photos of it just had a highly reflective unreadable plate lol.
