Massive improvement however you need a minimum of 18” wheels on otherwise they won’t fit

I'm trying to buy BC racing coil overs. I messaged BC over here in Australia and they said these are the same as Darkside but not listed to fitting a 2008 Caddy on their website. Has anyone purchased from BC racing in Australia and fit them to a model below 2010. Thanks ImageImage

Yeah unfortunately we're too big a country and too small a contingent of those owning a vdub caddy and want to catch-up in person!

Hey guys, I haven't been on the forum for a good while and I've been playing around with Caddys for a while now.

I've done a couple of TFSI conversions in these and have my head around it now and I can wire one up or do the whole conversion if anyone in the Sydney area wants one done.

Here are a couple of pics of my Caddy I just sold.

Starts around 5k depending on what your Caddy is plus a doner car. Mk5 GTI's are around $1800-$2500 at the auctions up here in Sydney

Hi all, Thought I'd pop my head in and say hi, not sure how many of you are still active though. I've been the owner of a 2008 1.9 tdi for approximately 1 month now and I'm seriously in love. I'm realising I'm in a serious minority here being 1) Australian 2) a female and 3) an Australian female interested in modifying her Caddy :lol: Mostly cosmetic mods at this point though, but who knows where it'll end! Anyway, hi from Melbourne to any other Aussies out there!
