Hey Guys, a new member and Caddy owner here, based in Perth. Anyone else here in WA?

I've just picked up a 2011 Maxi Life 1.6l in stock form and loving it, but looking forward to changing a few things up on it, I just don't like my chances of finding much locally in WA :lol:

The postage to Aus is a killer.... almost 200p for a 400p purchase. :shock:

Hi all,

Based in Coffs Harbour NSW.

Currently building a T5.1 Camper , and also looking to convert the 2k with a TFSi set up

Was gifted a VW Golf GTi (Mk5) looking at alot of Elsa currently for wiring conversions.

Has any one in Australia done the TFSI conversion? if so any words of advise for the wiring.

So good to see that there is quite a few Aussies in here.

Just sucks that getting a hold of any mod parts here is next to impossible unless you've got a gold mine just to pay postage

Very generous Petrev!
We are such a small market here. Painfully obvious when we start modding Euros.
Thanks heaps for offering to help out these lads.

Was this a straight swap and a huge improvement?
