PM Limit Upped
on March 24, 2015, 01:04:48 PM

Ive just raised the limit up to 500PMs. Hopefully that should give everyone a bit more head room. The forum seems to be running fine so no reason to cap it as low as 100 now.

I am going to guess where you need help with the connections...Are you trying to connect the hose to a smaller ED30 fmic port like the Audi S3 has? And the new hose is a larger inside diameter than the fmic port? You can use a short, 2 or 3 inch, piece of hose who's inside diameter fits the port and the outside diameter fits inside the new hose. But if none of this makes sense...di

Could be steering rack. I've got a similar noise.

What did you and your MKV do today?

Replaced the cabin filter, unreal the amount of debris that fell out of the old one. Had s date stamp of 2011, so had been in there a while. Oh and filled up blank switches near the ask tray with USB and AUX buttons.

Also if you whould like a cheap R32 setup look for these part numbers:

TRW BDA690 - R32 caliper carrier rear left

TRW BDA691 - R32 caliper carrier rear right

TRW BHS938 - R32 caliper rear left

TRW BHS939 - R32 caliper rear right

I started looking for TRW part numbers after i've seen that my Cupra OEM rear brakes were made by th

Looks like They don't get good reviews, some stating they supply copies in branded boxes :confused:

Euro car parts have Sachs clutch packs but only LUK DMFs... Can these be used together?

The only reason for not going for LUK/LUK is I've read the Sachs clutch can take more torque..?

Help/insight/experience really appreciated. :happy2:

I'm sorry to read that the wheels didn't have enough brake clearance. I hope you can find a good set that suits your needs. :(

I'd say mine doesn't really sound like either of those, but don't think it is as bad as the first clip. Hopefully it's fine - just high mileage without replacement is worrying me

If you have DSG there is a grommet where the clutch would go. Don't bother removing the seats just remove the plastic trim that runs along the side. Unless you plan to put the amp under one of the seats.

any aftermarket stereo is gonna need a switched live and illumination wire (ive only managed to find a variable 3-12v one so far not the required 12v one). Then your gonna need a decent fascia adapter kit with cage. your also gonna need a twin fakra aerial adapter and wire 12 volts to that. wheel control will need adapter also. so its not plug and play.

In good condition

Revo Ceramic Coated Intake
Location: Merthyr Tydfil
Postage: £10.00
Delivery or Collection

I bought this direct from Revo a while ago but after a few weeks on the car I've decided its not for me. Too noisy. I should have known better really as I had an ITG kit on an Edition 30 !
Ok , Revo had used this kit on one of their cars for a while and it was sold to me as used. When I opened the box the only thing that looked remotely used was the main intake pipe but this was in what I would call really good condition. There's one mark on the main pipe where it passes through the heatshield and its rubbed through the ceramic coating. The inlet elbow , hose clips , filter , etc all looked brand new to me.
Looking for £280 plus £10 post.

2006 (56) -  VW mk5 GTI - Tornado Red - 59K - 3dr - Nice Spec
Location: Suffolk
Collection Only

It is time to sell my much loved car, this has been my pride and joy for over a year now, but i feel i don't use it very much as it is kept in the garage all week and only comes out at the weekend, the car is cleaned regularly. 

I purchased this off another member on here who took great care of it as have I.

This is a very clean GTI inside and out with no odd smells or noises etc (non-smoker). The car has been faultless in my ownership and drives superb, it would be a great base for anyone who would like a well maintained GTI with a few mods.

Anyway here are the details:

2006 (56) 2.0T, GTI, 6 Speed Manual

3 Door in tornado Red.

Full service history:
- 28k Service & Air Con Service.
- 42k Service and Air Con Service and CAM BELT CHANGE
- 47k Service
- 56k Major Service Front disc and pad change, Spark Plugs etc

MOT Till December 2015
2 keys

The car has had the following upgrades/modifications:

Eibach Sportline springs 20/25mm
AMD Remap - Stage one
Milltek Cat - Back (Can be removed from garage)
Professional colour coding with ED30 front splitter
RNS 510 Sat Nav with DVD playback and latest maps (still have standard unit)
Canbus Gateway (to stop battery drain from RNS)
Front Armrest (Still have standard center piece)

All other GTI Refinements: Flat bottom steering wheel, Dual climate control, Air Con, Auto Headlights, Auto Wipers, Alarm and Immobilizer, Trip Computer, Auto dimming rear view mirror, heated mirrors, Isofix Points Etc.

Now to be absolutely anal...
There are a few minimal marks on the alloys (none of the TD 1.2's)
Light scratch on off side front bumper, very thin.
Very light scratch on near side door, difficult to see as red paint covers it.

After taking into consideration i am after £7800 ONO

Price is negotiable but no silly offers, can also negotiate with or without the Team Dynamics.

Thanks for looking.

Genuine Monza 18's mirror polished faces

    Hi guys I'm selling my monza 18's. Genuine OEM rims which came back from the APS in Swansea (http://www.alloyrefurb.net/Pages/default.aspx) today 16/04/15 having had a hand polish job done, but now I see them they aren't for me. Nothing wrong with them just wish I'd gone for black gloss instead.

    The tyres will be coming off so looking for £500 for the wheels Ono which is pretty cheap considering the £250 refurb with receipt.

    i have the centre caps btw lol.

    Any marks on the wheels in the pics are from the chemical guys Jetseal I put on them earlier.

    I've found a replacement set so want these gone. Feel free to hit me with any offers if they aren't insulting lol.
