When I had the springs and service done on mine last week I put a dv+ and a pre cat and resonator delete done and it's absolutely brilliant, the fart on gear change is fantastic  :signLOL:

Recently had mine changed after it got stuck open. Who'd have thought it would be such a PITA job to change a thermostat   :stupid:

Anyway as others have said the coolant takes a long while (>15 mins) to reach 90deg if it even gets there at all. Mine sat around the 70 degree mark whils


Re: Right rear wheel is HOT
Last Poster: GTICZ in How to Guides / Troubleshooting on Yesterday at 11:31:51 PM
i dont think it's a bearing wheel, there is no play and no noise.. but i noticed that brake power is probably stronger on this wheel, cause it has tendency to block first, so abs start kicking and then is no such power brake force... :(

so i have to find out why is sticking when is on the ground

Re: Reflex Silver Mk5 Golf GTI
Last Poster: JamieKirk95 in Members Rides on Yesterday at 08:45:03 PM
Haha its a nice car really, perfect for driving round town but think it would struggle for power on fast roads/motorways. I really like the bluetooth audi and mfsw and has got me thinking!


Re: Long coding for ch steering module.
Last Poster: Newbieintown in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 08:15:41 PM
I had the same issue the other week @RetroRaz helped me out big time... I ended up with an abs test mode fault.... driving at 13mph and turning steering wheel between 90-180 was a PITA.... 5am Tesco empty car park did the trick.


Re: Another 3 door side skirt thread
Last Poster: SI-R32 in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 07:48:47 PM

I noticed the other day when cleaning my 3dr ED30, the skirt on the passenger side overhangs the rear arch by about 5 or 6mm, so I'm guessing a previous owner fitted a 5 door one in error?  That opens a can of worms about undeclared accident damage obviously, but I want it to be as it should be

Re: MK5 Golf GTI oil change
Last Poster: JamieKirk95 in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 06:12:01 PM
I did mine a couple of weeks ago and for some reason the 36mm I thought it would be wouldn't fit, so I had to nip to halfords and bought a 38mm one and worked fine :happy2:


Re: Which stereo?
Last Poster: GTi-Tecnix in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 05:27:53 PM
Do these work with mfsw and mfd? Thinking about getting one to replace my rcd510 as a cheaper option to buying the necessary Bluetooth modules.
Yes mine now works with ignition on. Battery had died a few t

    Unfortunately I need to scratch the T5 camper itch and my beloved Edition 30 needs to be sacrificed! I have owned this for 2 years and has been a joy to own. I hope the pictures show the very good condition it has been kept in. It has just nudged over 100k miles the other week but has a comprehensive full VW service history all its life. It was last serviced by Listers VW just before xmas. The BBS alloys are in excellent condition with no kerbing whatsoever. A new clutch and slave cylinder was fitted last year. I bought the car with a R-tech remap which makes the performance fantastic (I'm 40yrs old now so it hasn't been thrashed from pillar to post or from cold). I've added some eibach springs to make the ride height more pleasing to the eye. The standard springs can be re-fitted if the new buyer wishes. Two new front wings fitted last year under corrosion warranty at south hereford VW. Factory dash 6 cd changer and iPod cable fitted. MFSW. Rear parking sensors. Goodyear eagle F1's all round. Recent rear discs and pads. Mot til december. No p/x. Any questions please msg me or 07530230356.
