Matte scirocco from Croatia

Postby cale » Sun May 11, 2014 5:47 pm

Hi 2 everyone,
I bought used scirocco about one and a half year ago. He was all OEM and I tried to change that :D
When I bought him he was almost full of original equipment so that was pretty good.
Motor is 2.0 TDI 140ps.

So here are few pics when I bought him

first thing that I've done on my scirocco is getting him repainted to some nicer colour.
Porsche Sealgrau Matte colour

few pics from bodyshop

Image
Image
Image

He was beauty when he was done. Very good job done there.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Next thing on the list was putting a subwoofer in it :D
A little one for the start

Image
Image

Then I saw that nobody could drive Scirocco that high !!! so I bought KW v1 coilovers and installed them :)

Image
Image

so it looked like this on rocco

Image

It was lowered but not enough
I was getting rocco prepared for 11. VW Tuning Show, Croatia, Karlovac
Bought new rims - OZ Futura front 9x18, back 10x18, and lowered him a little bit more

my fav pic

1st place for scirocco
Image

Winter came, winter rims were painted from matte black to glossy black and rocco was high again

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Next step was a few months ago, putting rear back from R20 on
bought used r20 back bumper for a very little price :D
repainted in car colour and installed it
had to buy new exhaust, lastovcic (croatian exhaust, looking nice but no sound for diesel)

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

I will put few pics tommorow from few days ago, futuras on, lowered to the maximum that kw v1 can but still not low enough!! :D thinking about switching to air that could be interesting.
cheers ;) ;) ;)

well done on winning the prize looks much better in matte.

why don't you change the bulbs to whiter ones? it makes a big difference.

I prefer your winter wheels to be honest, the silver ones don't sit right with me...

Thank you 3t3p,
What bulbs do you think,in xenon or position?
I wont change bulbs in xenon now because it's not original xenon, I am planning to install original so I don't bother with this one :D
turn signals are on as position and position light also, but I'm afraid to put white position bulbs because I don't want that position bulbs are stronger than american turn signal positions.

Well rims it's from pearson to pearson, I love them, absolutely adoreee :D but I will take them off soon because some 19" are almost ready for my rocco and they are much closer to winter set up then summer :)

long time no see mates :)

few things changed and upgraded

went to worthersee and I was amazed

first thing done on my rocco lately was getting him on some remap. REVO done the job with stage 1 on 170hp. Difference is quite big, the car is much better in high gears. Don't need to shift lower gear to overtake :D

some stickers
Image
Image

next thing on the paper was what to do with front end... r20 or not... i choosed to do t5 grill install on original front bumper...
disassembled the front end and took the original and t5 grill to a guy who can weld them.

everything what is needed. r20 side skirts with door plates, t5 grill, and a r20 upper front grill (but it doesn't match on the bumper so its for sale)
Image
disassembling was pretty easy few torks on every side.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

the t5 grill was ready for worthersee but side skirts weren't done
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

then when we came back to croatia side skirts were finally done and fitted
Image

and the latest update was new rims
ordered and fitted Rotiform SPF 8.5x19, and 10x19
had little problems with fitting 10j in the back but everything is sorted out now
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

thats everything for now... thinking about some bigger changes around the engine like turbo and injectors new map etc... if anyone has experience with that, I would be thankful for sharing it :D

peace out guys :)

Love that. Didn't like a few of the sets of alloys you had on before, but the most recent ones are nice.

I love the matte grey, also as said above the newest wheels look best I think.
