Cool ° [ Az Riz ] ° . Red E92 LCI . 2k mile Euro road trip PICS

Az Riz - E92 Progress Thread




I thought it was about time to start my progress thread now that the weather is clearing up and my parts have started arriving. Every weekend in March and April has been scheduled for further progress on the car in order to get her looking how I would like. It’s coming along well, I think.

I have ventured over from the VAG community after owning a Golf GTI MK4 for the last 6 years. It was heavily modified and is an absolute pleasure to drive. Running 300bhp (rebuilt engine with forged internals, high-flow tubular exhaust manifold and a bigger turbo etc etc), with Porsche brakes and very stiff coilover setup, it’s one hell of a blast to drive hard. I knew I’d never be Ok with selling it so it is currently sitting quietly in a secret underground location( ), waiting to be brought back out when I am able to. Pics of her in Post 3.

Here are a few shots of the E92 as she currently looks in stock form:

Work being done over the next few weeks:
  • Arch mods for wheel clearance - almost done
  • Cleaning and neatening some dirty parts up (e.g. cleaning/painting hubs/calipers etc) - done
  • Coilovers being fitted this weekend
  • Detailing session booked for Easter Bank Holiday weekend with a good friend (this car is swirled and scratched to DEATH, obviously ‘looked after’ by a bunch of monkeys - luckily the paint is the only thing that is not doing so well!). Will be claying, applying Iron-X, and performing a very detailed paint correction before sealing.
  • Second service since purchase (aiming at servicing every 3-4 months due to racking up 2200 miles per month)

Wheels are still in production (hoping to see them early May as there has been a delay)


This is all in prep for her first show (trip): Wörthersee, Austria

Not crazy or anything, just want a bit of poke with the guarantee of no rubbing as that would really bug me. We did some mods to the arch lip and also the arch liner itself to give lots more clearance over stock. There is still about 9-10mm of a lip from the outer edge, we didn't cut it completely off due to wanting to maintain structural rigidity.

I'll get some detailed pics up next weekend after fitting the coilovers to show what has been done and then we can discuss getting something similar done for you once I have finished testing it to see how well it withstands road use.

Thanks man, it is nothing crazy for now due to time and budget constraints, but I'm sure I'll make them look good
