I was pretty pleased. Perhaps an inherently strong engine? Definitely not an upgraded pump as I've changed the follower in it and had to deal with the b@stard banjo bolt.

Don't forget EVERYTHING can be retro fitted. One of the joys of the Mk5/Mk6 platform.

Love what you've done with the badge.

Is that just a stick on underlay to the standard badge?

I'm tempted to do something similar.

It's pre cut to shape so you basically just put pieces onto the spaces. Sorry, not at my most articulate, baby that won't

Re: ABS/ ESP / tyre presure issue
Last Poster: Peskyjones in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 11:30:20 PM
Nope vcds will show fault with abs at any point lights on or off. If you get the same error as mine then it will be new hub. Id say its likely the hub. Vcds fault wont drtermine whether the fualt is hub or sensor.

When you replace hub, make sure it is genuine hub as mine was initially replaced with a Lucas one and it still threw up lights over 75. Replaced with tips genu

Transponder chip  :surprised: you're very lucky to have found it as that's what demobilises the car. news ones are cheap but then it'll need reprogramming with vagcom/vcds. Done this with my new spare key on previous motor and it worked a treat.

Good choice! You will love it. I was weighing up a 6R for a while, but after test driving one I knew it was for me straight away. Reminded me a lot of my beloved Mk5 R32.

I was just messed around slightly when it came to paying me my cash back on a part ex. Was just fed lie after lie.

I had a bad experience with the dealer too. Managed to get a half price DSG service, but still, I wouldn't pay any premium to go via a dealer in the future.

Last Poster: AJP in How to Guides / Troubleshooting on Yesterday at 09:06:51 PM
Maybe part of the same problem, maybe something completely different!

Probably best to start at the coils as they're at the cheaper end of possible suspects. It's not really a specialist job to diagnose or fix, so you could do worse than quickly nipping the car into a local garage, they should be able to rule things out at the very least pretty quickly.

I've used autosol not too long back and my 13 year old some how noticed them gleaming and looking better than all the others around my area but the down side is that they have these rusty bits that don't want to shift so I may look a some 80mm round tips to replace these with.

I won a set of r32 mk4 pipes last year for £35 brand new but the twat on ebay didn't send them

If you want the MDI you would need to replace the outer armrest casing with an MDI version rather than storage version like you have. Its really easy to change the outer case but if there is no changer or MDI there curre
