Andrew - 11' MK6 Golf GTI
Obviously when modifying a car, there is always challenges, touch wood I haven’t hit any yet, but the car tends to throw something at me when I do something nice to it.

My name is Andrew and I live in sunny South Wales I am currently an International Tour coach driver and so naturally spend a lot of time on the road travelling.
I’m the owner of a 2011 mk6 Golf GTI, I chose the mk6 GTI because I like the blend between the curves and angled body lines, unlike the mk7 which I find too boxy for my taste you also don’t see that many mk6 around these days so for me it stood out.
A few friends drew me into the car seen through their cars and local car meets obviously the “Fast a Furious” franchise was a big draw also, once I got my licence I was always going to be in a modified car. Most of my family don’t really understand my love of cars or the scene but to me, it’s a big release from everyday life you just can’t beat a drive through welsh mountain roads with music and the sound of the exhaust.
The thing I’d say that stands out the most is fairly obvious and that’s the wrap on it you certainly wouldn’t lose it in a crowd that’s for sure. Obviously, when modifying a car, there are always challenges, touch wood I haven’t hit any yet, but the car tends to throw something at me when I do something nice to it.
The car is currently running an APR stage 2 map so is sitting at 284bhp roughly.
Full spec list:
- APR stage 2 software
- 1 off digitally printed wrap
- Custom turbo back exhaust
- Ram air induction kit
- ECS tuning dipstick
- Rotiform LAS-R alloys
- Airlift performance 3p management with performance series bags
- TRC splitter
- Maxton designed side splitters and rear diffusers
- R8 coil packs
- Android tablet head unit
- Handmade boot build for the air ride
- Mk7 Golf R-style headlights
- Sachs performance clutch
- Kill all wiper's wiper delete kit.
Most of the work was done by myself and friends, the APR map was done by SCM remaps and the wrap was done by Popin graphics in Cardiff south wales. SCM remaps are top draw and Simon really knows his stuff would highly recommend them and Popin graphics were very helpful from start to finish from designing the wrap printing it and fitting fair to say they knocked it out of the park.
I’m currently a brand ambassador for @stancegxng and @Fresh.ukk, I am also a member of my local club Projekt automotive and Elite Edition. I try to attend as many shows as possible with the car and friends when work lets me my favourite shows have to be modified nationals, gravity and ultimate dubs there are more but the list would be endless.
I don’t really have a dream car to be fair because they say you should never drive your dream car just in case it disappoints you. Thank you for taking the time for reading this write-up and for giving me the opportunity to get the car out there. obviously, coronavirus has wiped out show season this year so I will be back next year bigger and better.
