I'd bounce on each corner of the car and check how many times the corner bounds and rebounds..... Pikey methods yo!

Clean, Low Mileage Edition 30 Wanted
Last Poster: ryan_w in Wanted on Yesterday at 09:24:31 PM
Hi all,

I'm after a nice factory spec (don't mind if it's been tastefully modified) Edition 30 which has good forum history / enthusiast owned and not a million owners.

Looking to buy within the next couple of weeks (have cash available now), however, I'm in no massive rush and will wait for the right car, just putting the feelers out there to see what's about

Hi @Lewo They are one of the best repairers of VAG cars in the country by all accounts, so I felt lucky I wasn't too far away. I'm sure they'll be happy to do your wings as that is an accepted fault (if they've not been fiddled with before). They checked mine, which were fine and said they could tell they

Even main dealer techs damage things. I did one first time and damaged it. simple order another one but it was a sales car so didn't have to worry about a customer moaning about it. see how it goes.

What damaged the wheel?  :surprised: I'd go back and make them refurbished that wheel if it were me  :slap: Hope it sorts out.

Yes the golf R lookd good and yes it is a new car but for me when I spend my money I want something unique.

I see so many golf R's around now but not many ED30's and that is the way I like it.

Plus I do not care what other people think and know of what the ED30 is which makes it even more nicer when they think they can fly off the line at traffic lights in the

Bilstein B8 Dampers (Mk5 / MK6)
Location: West Yorkshire
Postage: £15.00
Delivery Only

Hey guys,


I have a full set of B8 dampers for sale. Its very rare these come up as they are a great handling mod. They are used and have covered about 14-15,000 miles. They do have the wear marks from fitting and a bit of paint flake from amazing British weather, but the shocks them self's are in perfect working order. No cracks and hold the gas perfectly.

They are the perfect shock if you want to improve your handling as they pretty much remove all body roll when paired with good set of springs. I think bilstein say they are about 20% stiffer.

Brand new they retailed at around £550, as they have plenty of life left in them im looking for around £300. Comes with all they original box and can be picked up or shipped at your cost.
Neuspeed P-flo induction kit & Heatshields
Location: Harrogate, N.Yorkshire
Postage: £12.00
Delivery or Collection

Up for sale is my Neuspeed P-flo induction kit (ko4)

It's come off my edition 30 due to me getting a Revo kit off a friend before he traded his car in otherwise it would of stayed on.
Been using this kit for 2yrs now with no problems, all in good condition, few fittings marks but no damage. Filters just been washed and freshly oiled.

Last time my car was tweaked by Statllers at Revo stage 2 it made 330bhp/340ft lbs so it can do the numbers just fine! For the price it's a good bit of kit.

The bottom of the pipe is fitted with heat reflective tape, the exhaust heatshield is an evoms one and the cold air feed is custom made by me, Neuspeed kits are never provided with one of these so I built one.
The custom air feed attaches to the slam panel using the standard points and bolts and one near the battery so is very secure and sturdy. I just copied the Revo design and again the bottom of this is lined with heat reflective tape, no others will have this fitted.

Like any open cone filter it makes some noise, not too intrusive but probs the same as the Revo I've just fitted. All the wording and sales pitch can be found on awesomegti's site for these (I'll link it in the replies once posted)

Good honest cheap mod for someone, met a few guys off the forum at meets and I'm no messer so buy with confidence. Offered to the forum first. Any questions just ask. Buyer to cover any fees.
