Welcome :)

What are you planning for your T5? The forum is REALLY useful for giving ideas from wiring in lights to complete conversions, where to go once you are up and running, and even what to cook your dinners in.. my current obsession!

Have fun, and warn the bank balance to be prepared..........

Well it's going to be used for motocross so it will remain empty in the back just with a hard wearing floor :) first things I would like to do is have the seats re trimmed in leather and a double din screen instead
Of the standard head unit. Then lastly upgrade the 16 vw alloys for a set of 18s/19s. Preferably sportline alloys.

Thanks

Ashley

I'm a newbie too! For replacement head units Pioneer seem very well regarded. I couldn't stretch to a Pioneer with the features I wanted so got a JVC and although it is a new model it feels a bit old tech. Worth getting hands on before making a decision.

Ok thank you for that advice as I was gonna ask people on their opinions on head units as you see a lot of different ones for sale. So wanted people's input on the best ones to go for.

Thanks

We have the Pioneer 960DAB which is great and works with Apple Carplay. It did get smudged really easily, but just bought a kindle fire screen protector and cut it down. The only thing both me and Husband don't like is the lack of a twiddly volume control. Oh and in bright sunlight you can't see the display very well. It was easy to install, and other than those bits really happy with it.

I don't do Motocross but I do cyclocross and XC mountain bike events instead. I'll just tell you now that T5s on wide car tyres are pathetic on wet grass and useless if there's any mud about so I'd do a few events before committing to bling wheels.

Yea I was thinking that. I've got 16 inch genuine vw alloys at the moment. So will see how I get on first before changing them. Thanks for your advice
