Great work man. Mad props.
Wish i had the balls and patience to do this on my drive. Before hour 2 someone from inside would probably come running out asking why i crashed the car.

Congrats dude

I do t think the factory fitted sensors on a MK5 golf can do what you want them to. I think you'd need to get the optical sensor kit and retro for it  :happy2:
That's right. I did that to my Ed. 30 that came with parking sensors and a RNS-510 fitted from factory.

If it's been looked after the miles shouldn't be too much of an issue but I'd be replacing all the usual things as soon as possible. Wheels are not original and there is no armrest. I thought all the ED's had the arm rest?
yeah noticed the arm rest not there and also thought they

Must be heated (not sure if they all were) I know these interiors are rare and i'm annoyed i missed a set that had been on the forum for a bit.

Re: Superchips Bluefin

I was tempted to go for the bluefin as it does appeal being able to take the map off and on when/if needed. But i've realised that when the time comes for me to remap i'll have added an exhaust/induction kit and perhaps the extras for stage 2, so for me REVO can do their thing and i'm sure the drive home will be worth it.

Downpipe wants to be 3" and if you're going for a sport cat rather than decat make sure it's from a decent brand. Powervalve, Milltek etc. If you're just doing a decat then some of the more affordable brands seem o

I used muck off and a sponge, then I gave it a quick light rinse.

I will also say - hardlines for the brakes, what a difference!!!

Shame there was no interest from this forum, would've been good to get some VW representation down there. We had fords, jags, audis, mitsubishis, teslas, minis, mazdas, etc etc Does the forum ever get involved in shows?

Think about it for next year?

It was a great day out; from all the cars on display, to planes and helicopters, army vehicles, cars on track, a

    R32 Rear lights
    Location: Leicestershire
    Postage: £10.00
    Delivery or Collection

    A set of R32 rear lights which are in average condition.

    After looking around for ages I found this set and I was sold these as a perfect condition set (not off of here so i've learnt my lesson) and when I received them they weren't as described and the seller refused to take them back.

    The right outer light is a brand new Magneti Marelli and the left outer is a VW one but has some dried water marks on the inside, the 2 inners are VW ones, one of which has a slight light mark on it but this is barely noticeable.

    The inners do not come with bulbs and i'm not sure if the outers have bulbs.

    Tbh i'm gutted at what I paid for these and I'm selling these for quite a loss.

    Any questions please ask, I will get back to you asap.
