Merry Christmas Happy Holidays

Enjoy the holidays

A very busy 2019 has flown by, where has the time gone? All we know is it’s been shipment after shipment of parts to all corners of the globe, non stop all year, little breaks for the team, but we love helping you to build that dream and live the dream.

We are pleased to finish the year on another high. 1000s of fellow Volkswagen owners have been helped with parts to help restore and maintain road worthiness as well as upgrade performance on the newer models.

What a year it’s been and as we approach 2k20 we are excited and looking forward to what the future holds, to helping more customers complete their dream cars. As always our goal is as the motto we adopt. ‘Future Requires Tradition’.

It’s been a brilliant year for the MK3 with more parts back in production, 100s of parts unearthed from Volkswagen warehouses, we are now at the level with MK3 parts that you could almost rebuild from scratch, an incredible achievement and one we’re as proud as you must be when we see all the MK3s around and looking their best, and 2k20 has more potential, the penultimate of it’s back to glory state is yet to arrive though the market for restored and modified is stronger than ever and the future is bright.

At the other end of the scale Model wise, the MK7 has seen too, an incredible year of Performance parts released time and time again from the likes of Milltek Sport and Scorpion Exhausts giving that raspy more grumbly sound and performance everyone craves through to RacingLine and Forge Motorsport with Induction kits and engine bay parts, Big Brake Kits and all the heavy hitting upgrades.

With the MK8 taking orders at main dealers and already appearing, we are looking forward to continued developments from our performance parts partners in 2k20, our roots will always be MK3 and OEM but for us it’s now at that young classic level and a daily of a new car, MK5 MK6 or MK7 with performance in mind actually helps keep the now much older MK3s undercover, we did so with the MK4 R32 and that too is now getting the TLC after daily use.

We have that love for the MK4 R32 as many of you will know, but again in deep restoration, many parts are following through the ranks with Volkswagen Official reproductions (oh how sweet an achievement is that for VWPI) New carpet mats of original OEM quality, re made by Volkswagen’s original manufacturer. That’s 1 special part of 2019 that ensures our commitment to the R32 and so many owners, us included, will treasure those new R carpet mats, it was done for MK3 OEM fenders and again for the R32.

If you demand these things, we and as we refer the Wolfsburg Gods, do listen and do make these things happen.

So many great moments of success like that, trivial to some (Likely Nissan owners) but each one a mission in itself for us and many of you, another milestone in saving these great cars, we all want the finishing touches as well as the key repair parts.

Part of all of our success and tradition. Not forgetting to mention everyone else involved, everyone at Volkswagen that we have pestered, even begged (well must seem so to them) on some occasions, the Original manufacturers having to dig out patterns, moulds and taking a time warp back in time having to evaluate what we claim and take a risk alike, we love it and want more, we know you do to.

So there we go, a quick summary of 2019. Thanks to all of our customers for their support and custom, we do our best as do all the couriers and parts manufacturers and from us, we wish you a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year, or however you celebrate, enjoy the holidays.

VR6 Performance Ignition Coil Pack Set Up ‘in house’ coils Like MSD Coil Pack

VR6 MSD Type In House Ignition Coil Pack Demo Setup with OEM Coil Pack Shroud For Illustration

VR6 ‘In House’ Coil Packs

VR6 Performance Ignition Coil Pack Set Up ‘in house’ coils Like MSD Coil Pack.

So here we have set up our ‘in house’ VR6 coil pack, very similar to the MSD coils we also have but the ‘in house’ coils are an unbranded version, originating from the USA from our same supplier of MSD, a slight cost saving but also with the black stealth look which is what we decided on.

To install we just need to retain the base and shroud. The shroud on this coil pack has been ‘chromed’ in the past, still in good condition but even better after a quick polish! To start the original coil pack was dismantled only to find some of the circuit needed was burnt out, so we found another coil pack and dismantled that!

Taking the base and the outer shroud, the rest of the oem coil pack was put to one side,  the chromed shroud sandwiched between the custom made bracket and the coil pack base with connector, the coil pack base connector was then attached to the new in house coils using the supplied kit.

Ready to bolt on, here comes a stronger bang supplied from the coils and the future ability to swap out failed coils should they fail!

Milltek Sport GT100 Polished Tips Fitted to Golf MK4 R32 with Milltek Sport Cat Back Non Resonated

GT100 Polished Tips

The R32 with Milltek Sport Exhaust GT100 Tips, we are often asked how the cut is/looks, the GT100 tip follows the bumper almost right with it’s angle cut/slash, it is not cut straight like some may think.  While this R32 was on the ramp, we thought we’d grab a quick picture. System fitted several years ago now and although the underside is muddy and some corrosion on the clamps, the sound is unreal and the tips are nice and shiny.

While we are here and if you’re wondering about new tips, Milltek Sport Exhaust Tips will only fit with the vehicle specific Milltek Sport exhaust system that they are made for, something we often have to refuse customers over. They won’t fit oem so get a Milltek! or risk cutting and welding and faffing about.  So yes being it already had a Milltek, it would be a straight forward job, for this R32 the tips are still great. The pur, oh you got to love it the sound of the R32 with the Milltek Sport Non Resonated system!



We won’t waffle here as the detail is very well documented on the product pages, read more on the link  https://vwpartsinternational.com/omega-search/?q=Milltek+tips&post_type=page#q=Milltek+tips&post_type=page

The Daily Race Car

What Lies Beneath


Robin got in touch with a cool looking white, 4-door, big bumper MK2, and what a MK2 it is.

From the outside, Robins MK2 has a seemingly understated OEM look to it, but if you’re at a 1/4 mile track day and this comes up next to you, there’s a good chance you’re just going to see the back of it for this run… the only giveaway for the eagle-eyed amongst its victims, is the badge that sits in the front grille…

Robin explains how he came to have this car, and gives us a rundown of this daily driven racer.

“I’ve owned the car for 11yrs.

It started life as a 2E 2L 8v digifant motor, eventually converted to a modern EFI making 91kw and 164nm.

These were produced in South Africa in 1992 under the VWSA motorsports banner, as a “test” vehicle for the mk3 gti as we never received a 16v mk3 gti, but one with a 2.0 8v.

The car is used as a true daily driver. Long road trips are part of its life. I drag race it and as a 1.8T 20v, it’s been down the strip over 320 times over 3 years. It’s seen a couple track days.

Plans to go big turbo are in the works, but not as quickly as I’d like.
The car is built on the foundation that if it can’t be a daily, I won’t build it.”

We love this dedication to keeping this as a useable, reliable car, but with the power to surprise a lot of newer cars.

We are loving how clean of an install this is, its almost as if it was there from factory.


Robin explains the spec here…

1.8T 20v AGU
K03
AJH intake
63mm downpipe and exhaust.
Custom intercooler and stainless steel piping.
GFB decepter pro 2 electronic bov
GFB G-force 2 electronic boost controller.
Powermods management with flat foot shifting and 2-step launch control.
Poly engine mounts

BC Racing BR edition coilovers.
16″ volk racing G25 lightweight 7J with 195/45 Nankang NS2 tyres.
14″ stock “rib cage” wheels are used in winter on Yokohama s-drive 185/55 tyres.

The car made 140kw 321nm at the wheels. With more work in the pipeline, we are going to keep in touch with Robin, as this build can only get better, and quicker.

We love how this MK2 has been built to be a true sleeper, easily mistaken for something it’s not, until it passes you, well done Robin, can’t wait to see where this goes.
