I like Mikayla's taste in wheels. Everything you posted should look awesome!
A couple other things I will add to your list of items to consider:
I installed on my GTI, it is nice. Nudge the stick and you get three blinks.
W8 Sunroof Panel (I know we discussed this):
Will add illumination and map lights.
2004+ Glove Box:
Not sure if you can buy the whole box anywhere, but it is slightly larger than the previous ones and the doors don't snap like before. I found ours at John's Auto.
2004+ Center Console:
Moves the drinks down fro above the radio.
They are illuminated and have a cleaner, shutter look to them.
Also think about doing the 5 brake lights, instead of 3 and the rear fog light - requires a euro switch and some wiring, but not hard to do.
Also Stainless Brake lines.
ECS has lots of interior pieces that will show wear and tear, like the HVAC panel and the driver's door window switch.
Fob control of Windows via Alientech Chip of the ECS Flash module.
Also, change your HVAC filter stat - it will feel like a new car inside.
That should keep you busy.
I for the price I would even bother with Jetta vents. But the center console is a must. I have been needing to get one for mine. I hate the cup holder pop out thing. It sucks soo much if you have any sort of drink larger than a can.
Look at Kerma TDI ( http://www.kermatdi.com/servlet/StoreFront) for a chip. That's what we got. It is sweet because they ship you a custom made one everytime you add or change parts/upgrades. I really like how they make a chip for you everytime you upgrade stuff. Then, we went with the PP520's (I believe) for bigger injectors. Also, get a race pipe. This will totally delete the EGR which can gunk up pipes and such.
We also did all new, bigger intercooler piping. Then added the TT inner fender liner for the passenger side. The TT fender is slotted so air can flow freely through the intercooler.
Coming shortly will be the VNT 17/22 hybrid Turbo with 2.5" turbo back.
So much to do to these things, it is fun. Plus, the mileage has gotten better with all the additions!
Koni's... SOUNDS GREAT. I love hi-tech shiz. Priced at $557 for the "kit" on special at TireRack now.
Billstein HD set of front and rear price at $558. Haha!
The ComfortTurn blinker is awesome and I want it but I am limited in the amount of toys I can pick before wedding. I had already put this on my longer list
W8 Sunroof panel. I really really want this but I have a Tan Beige interior. ECS only offers it in grey/black.
This 2003 has the center console and glovebox you speak of. so... CHECK!! (and yes it is better)
Jetta 'clean' vents look nice but are a waste of $ at that price.
I had the 5 brake lights/ rear fogs set up in my old Mk4 and I liked it. Maybe sometime. Low priority.
I love stainless lines. YES, but again, low priority until after the wedding. I also want Hawk/Stoptech pads up front at the same time.
I need plenty of trim pieces that have shown wear from 120,000mi of someone else not caring as much as I do about the condition of my car. I am seeking replacement panels. I need to make a list and see what I can find. DubsMcGee has a whole tan interior that I want to pick through. Jack at BVVW will supply the rest. ECS doesn't have very much Tan panels at all
I also had Alientech in my last Mk4 and liked it. They no longer are accepting orders. Boo. Maybe later. Low priority. What is: ECS Flash module?
HVAC filter = cabin pollen filter? Good smells guarantee?
I need to check out the status of the intake air filter too.
Nice car you picked up, makes me want to drive mine again.. looking forward to the mods
also, this may have been done to your car already but..
First mod I did with my mk4 TDI was a Ventectomy. It safely increases fuel tank capacity which gives you about 50-75 more miles per tank (depending how you drive) and no parts are needed
when this mod is done it does make filling up a bit faster.. on the downside you have to watch/listen to make sure you dont overfill (If your using the handle lock) thus resulting in diesel foam puking on the side of your car. so yeah dont use the handle lock to autofill, haha i learned my lesson the first time.
'10 Golf TDI - Black 4dr
'01 Golf TDI - TRed 2dr - (sold)
Nice I've been looking for a mk4 jetta tdi for a bit I'm too picky lol that looks like a really clean car congrats
Matt, if your interested I'd sell you my ECU with a unitronics 2+ chip set designed for larger PP520 injectors (runs fine on stock injectors until you upgrade). I need a stock ECU again since I will be going well beyond what I originally had planned thanks to my turbo blowing the engine up (yay oil).
It's not going any where let me know if your interested. It also deletes the EGR so you no longer have to worry about the intake clogging with soot (one of the biggest issues with the ALH). Oh and the caddy's looking nice with those new parts in it!
congrats nice looking ride. White is a great color on the MK4's!
This just gave me an urge to want to buy a TDI. Your new car looks great.
Matthew, ECS sells a module that you plug into the OBD2 port and it 'flashes' the window mod into the ECU. It works the same as the Alientech chip, but easier to do.
The flash module is a one time use thing, and runs about $50 or so.
I hear ya on the price of things... It doesn't have to all be done right now.
Just curious, is it Beige Leather inside?
I have some beige leather MK4 seats that might clean up okay, they are heated too...
One of these days I will have free time to go over to Ryan's and figure out all that's required to do it for less than $50
