    A good afternoon to everyone on the forum. I thought Iíd join up as it looks like thereís a goldmine of useful information here and Iíve got plenty to think about now Iíve got myself a luuuuuvley Ď59 plate Golf gti. Itís in Pearl black and a 3 door, with the 18ís on it (mk5 style ones) and came with a refreshed lighting all round of the R type led rears and projector-style-with-drl fronts. Itís also been treated to a stage 2 Revo set up which gives it phenomenal power delivery!

    I unfortunately had my *ahem* Focus ST written off after 8 years but prior to that Iíd spent the previous 15 years in Golfs. I went from a Ď90 plate Mk2 8v gti to a Mk1 Ď84 gti (in lovely Lhasa green), then went for a Ď97 3 door 16v gti before having about 10 years in my amazing 3 door black magic VR6 highline.

    Getting back in a VW feels great and despite the new carsí year and miles (80000), itís like new all round and feels super solid and tight. But seems things have moved on since my last Golf and Iím reading a lot about Ďcodingí. The headlights on mine are an aftermarket brand (?) and I would love the oem version xenons but it sounds like an utter mine field. So Iíve been reading up on numerous sites about how easy it is to screw up your car with new parts and wrong coding. Something Iíll learn about no doubt..., but not by screwing up my new Golf!
    Well, cheers All and have a happy Wednesday!
    Dan.

    Nice car. I’m pretty sure that that age of car doesn’t have component protection but the guys in the golf section will keep you right.

    Some of the electronics are linked to the car and have to be recoded if they are put into another car. It’s supposed to stop car theft for parts. It means that it’s not easy to upgrade the infotainment system or get second hand ECUs or electronic controllers etc without someone to recode the parts.
