Mark 4 V5

5 posts in this topic

I'm a newbie to this forum and was wondering if there are any other Irish V5 owners out there - wanted to see what upgrades or changes that you have done to your cars and see if it's something that might be of interest to me - also looking at going to the GTINI in April at the Maze and was wondering if there was a run heading up from the Northwest / West of Ireland - I am based in Fermanagh..

Hi, is she the 150 hp or 170 hp model? I had the 150 hp model in a Toledo V5 and had it remapped with a panel filter; gave me an extra 9 hp and 168 lbs ft torque. Not a huge hp gain due to no turbo but was usefully more torquey in the mid-range.

Hi the car is the 170 and I'm now looking at stage 2 remap with miltech exhaust. I've only had the car a month - picked her up in England with 97k on the clock and two owners from new - had good service history and is also the three door which there are not too many around at present. I have had a full check down on it and anything that was dodgy has been replaced with a new like for like part - all oils and filters etc also done and the engine had a wash out as well. The car is really in good condition inside and out apart from the wheels which I'm getting refurbished back to their original look.

Sounds good - they are an interesting alternative; mine always got a lot of attention from the MOT guys as most were diesels!

With it being a petrol there is a nice power output and the noise that's put out when running is just music to the ears - don't need any other sounds when you have that😑 Even the wife goes into silent mode😜
