The white caddy build that will keep snowballing

How’s it going guys?!

So I’ve never really owned a VAG. My wife has had two golfs but I’ve always been a bmw owner ( don’t hate )

I have a rather large dog and a love of mountain biking that’s always seen me have a second car or van. After a little while I decided I’d buy something a little bit better looking than a old connect or an old Astra estate.

I found this for sale for a very reasonable price around 3 weeks ago. Image

Hideous ride height and even worse wheel trims.
These had to go!

Image

Golf R pertoria’s on abs lowered on H&R lowering kit but I just wasn’t happy with the arch gap with the h&r springs.
So the same night I ordered some stance+ and away we went.

Image

It sits so much better with these and my H&R are now sat waiting for someone to buy them ( Hint Hint )

So last week I started on taking the bulkhead out. After removing one of the plyboards to get the bulkhead out I noticed lots of dirt.
My OCD got the better of me and I ripped all the boards out to give it a good clean.

Oddly satisfying but that was another little job ticked off.

Whilst I was at it I removed the Caddy and Tdi chrome letters from the rear door and added my godsons race sticker.

She’s slowly getting there so I think in the next few weeks I’ll get started on the interior.

Looking good already. Do you have a picture of what it looked like on the h&r springs. May be interested.

Thanks mate.

The second picture down was on the H&R.

I’m also running 18s

So day I fitted my black badge ( extra 20bhp I reckon )

Image

Whilst I was at it I got the horrible 70mph limiter removed. Yes I know the speed limit is 70mph.

Image

Whilst he was at it I thought it would be rude not to remap it.
Now I wasn’t bothered about power in the van and it’s never going to blow my mind but what a difference very happy with it so far.
