From Euro 4Motion to ... VAG MK4 OEM+

Hi. I have been lurking around here for 12 years now. I think it is time to start my own thread. This is already my 3rd Bora and 5th 4Motion mk4. My plan is to gather all the best parts made for mk4 platform and to create perfect mk4 for me. The donor is 2002 VW Bora V6 4Motion (24V VR6) with good factory options:
  • OEM HID
  • 24V VR6 BDE engine
  • Haldex gen 1 4Motion
  • 6 speed manual
  • tan leather Recaros with full power and memory
  • MFD navi (removed by previous owner)
  • Full-FIS
  • glass sunroof
  • climatronic
  • rain sensor
  • self-dimming rearview mirror
  • rear shelf curtain
  • parking sensors
Previous owner had some "tuning":
  • badgeless grill with modified hood
  • dark LED tails
  • mk5 style mirrors
  • mk5 GTI modified exhaust
Luckily he did something good too:
  • shaved blinkers from wings
  • front rubstrip from Japan
  • KW V3 coilovers

First pictures when I got the car:












Current status:
  • Audi TT 3.2 engine 184kw - chipped by custom-chips.de
  • DQ250 DSG transmission - chipped by custom-chips.de
  • Blue Haldex 4Motion controller
  • R32 brakes
  • 310mm rear brakes from Phaeton
  • Bora R OEM bumpers
  • KW v3 suspension
  • R32 steering rack
  • R32 modified exhaust
  • H&R arbs
  • BBS CH 19''
  • ProjektZwo grille
  • GLI side skirts
  • etc

It is always like that, that you desire something different / better.

Soda blasted GLI valances and skirts waiting for their turn:




And then modified mk5 GTI exhaust came out:


to install GLI rear valance, some changes had to be made to exhaust. Solution = R32 exhaust + GLI tip + GLI valance.

In progress:




Finished: modified mk4 R32 exhaust for Bora to have a single GLI tip.
