I'd reccomend getting a pcv delete myself. No adverse effects and youve eliminated a problem area from the equation completely

What was the main reason from changing with your initial setup in pic one?

does the mile long pipe effect it that much?

As to me, its still getting the same temp air as it was before?

Asking as i would like to do the same :)

Anyone traveling back through France to Calais yesterday? (Delays Bank Hol)

Assuming anyone that was, was also severely held up like we were - interested to know why we moved around 0.5 of a mile in 2 hours?

It looked like the roadworks on the last motorway between Dunkirk and Calais had some sort of Police check-point (one Police Ford Focus with 2 cops in sat up on a kerb watching the traffic when we finally got there), but does anyone know wha

Car turned on with dashboard airbag sensor unplugged
Last Poster: grayzee in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 10:12:35 PM
Hey all,

I turned my car on without plugging in my airbag light sensor back into the dashboard. (was wiring in my sub)

My airbag light now remains on when I turn my car on. I know its not a fault cos its triggered by me unplugging the sensor. 

My mate had this Maxiscan MS509 image below so we did a scan and no codes came up or got flagged. We trie

Looks great. I've just bought a GTi with one fitted from factory and it's such an upgrade from the old rcd300 in my last car. Agree it should be in a museum.

This thread may help me as I want to get the optical parking state working through the head unit. Sounds like the guy sending you a

T9351 is the correct GFB part for both K03 and K04 TFSi engines.

Worth noting that it's cheaper elsewhere as Awesome will charge you postage on top of that price, whereas AMD sell them for £97.80 delivered on eBay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GFB-DV-for-VAG-TFSi-Audi-VW-Seat-Skoda-Diverter-Valve-T9351-/271664459868?hash=item3f4076b05c:g:za8AAOxyffZSY63n

Aircon delete
Last Poster: Chris92 in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 09:53:14 PM
Once the rad, pump and pipes are removed from the car I understand I will need the shorter aux belt but what do people do with the two holes in the bulk head where the two aircon pipes connected to? Is there a blanking plate or anything?

Also will this put any codes on dash?

Just planning in my mind for when I get another golf, will be removing the aircon whe

horizontal or vertical 'tunnel'?
if horizontal a Gopro on a small trolley (skateboard) pushed using a long rod should work, mount lights on trolley and bob's your uncle.
As you've said, a professional will only do similar, but worse.

Very true!

I usually send this to people if asked about bedding in, it's a little blurry and sideways but you get the gist.

I'm not really worried about the warping tbh. I'm just pissed off with what I've been sold  :signLOL:

MK5 golf GTI DSG standard springs
Location: Berkshire
Collection Only

Standard springs off my MK5 golf GTI DSG, springs worked fine while on car, they look a bit ugly as the protective covering has started to peel in places as pictured. Went through an MOT with these on and no Advisories. Selling as I got HR lowering springs and these are just sat taking up space.

Might be use full to someone returning car back to standard before a sale or something.

MK5 golf GTI front discs and pads nearly new

Recently upgraded my brakes on my car so removed these. Nothing wrong with them only covered about 4000 miles.

Golf mk5 GTi front bumper - Black
Location: Leicester, East Midlands
Collection Only

For sale a Golf Mk5 GTi front bumper in metallic diamond black (paint code LC9Z).

It is in very good condition & has recently been repainted by the previous owner, so no major dents or scratches, can literally go straight onto your car (all fixings and lugs are intact).

Only reason for sale is that I purchased it by mistake as a replacement for my Edition 30, and then realised the Edition 30 bumper is subtly different to the GTi.

Comes complete as pictured, with inserts and built in GTi  lower splitter.

Collection only due to size, although could meet half way for a small fee.
