Default Upgrading 2001 Golf TDI

This was the daughter's car. We bought it in 2006 from the original owner. She drove it all through college and a few years after she graduated. It's a automatic and yes we had to replace the transmission once.

She finally bought a new car so Dad got the Golf. I have a fair amount of upgrades planned, not the least is a 6 speed and some performance mods. It may be a while before I can get to it, but here it is.

She should have kept it and had you put in the 6spd for her birthday. I've always been partial to a black vehicle. Congrats on the nice looking new car.

I tried when the first auto went out. Manuals and her don't mix!

Things are going slow, but I'm accumulating parts. I have done a few things, R32 headlights with glass lenses and, new radio and temporarily, a set of Key West wheels.

I've had a little delay. During Hurricane Matthew a tree fell on both TDIs. The Golf only sustained minor damage. It's at the body shop now being repaired.

Ouch! I hope the damage was superficial.

I'd like to see what radio you put in. One thing I've been thinking about doing with my 2001 is upgrade the stock stereo to something more current. What keeps me from doing so is having all the same functionality with the computer.

It wasn't too bad.

I went with this one . It's a factory radio, I think for a Mexican market VW. MP3, Bluetooth, RDS. Plugs right in on a 2001 MKIV.

You have a model number for that radio? Nice that it's plug & play.

I think it's a RMT100 or maybe RMT300. I know there are several versions of the same basic radio. ECS has one and you can find them on Vortex.

The site where the pictures were hosted was down, should be working now.

Default 02M 6 Speed

Starting to make some progress. Got the 02M 6 speed apart and cleaned up. I bought a Peloquin differential. The ring gear is installed and shimmed the diff bearings today. I did the shift fork mod while it was apart. Should have the gearbox back together soon!

Really like what you've done. I want a couple of things you've done for myself so I was glad to see them in your thread: The upgraded radio and the headlights. Looking forward to when you get it back together.
