Re: Edition 30 BBS Pescara wheel refurbishment
Last Poster: welikeaps in Mk5 General Area on Today at 06:22:50 PM
Lepsons in Kent, The pescara has got a slightly different finish as its not a standard silver. Older posts on here will reveal the paint code was/is very hard to come by.

Re: Tornado Red Gti, K04, TTRS Brakes +lots, lots more.
Last Poster: Crazy4myvw in Members Rides on Today at 06:13:06 PM
This car should be back in my possession in the next while.

The plan is a trackish setup but still road legal, something along the lines of SteveP's or NeilM's.

It's back completely standard at the moment, and my Dad has it fairly wrecked tbh. But I'll make it awesome again.  :dr

Re: Rear break plate Help?
Last Poster: dansmith180 in Mk5 General Area on Today at 05:54:14 PM
It's also there to help keep the disc as dry as possible for better braking in wet conditions, if you can make that one work or get a cheap one then its worth keeping but not really that import and if you CBA.


Re: ANOTHER Golf but this time a MK6 GTD
Last Poster: J400uk in Members Rides on Today at 05:53:36 PM
Not meant as a dig but I've always found it strange that the GTD lacks a noticeable amount of equipment standard. A lot of the things you're retrofitting like DAB, Bluetooth, OPS and Cruise Control were all included by default on my Match. I've then added Fogs, RNS 315 and Seattle alloys myself. Just missing the extra 30bhp now  :signLOL:

Plans sound good anyway.

Made a bit more progress on the boot build today. Wish i had bought some smaller amps.

The hinge works needs some beefing up here and there. Need to decide how to get the sub box into the spare wheel well.

What are the benefits of open fogs? Better cooling?

Re: Possible boost fault???
Last Poster: Tom_such in How to Guides / Troubleshooting on Today at 05:42:48 PM
It's the same in every gear.

If I let off then put my foot down the same happens again, up to 11 then down to 5psi.

Could it be because of my de-cat but not had it mapped yet? Could that upset the fueling/boost???

Re: Sudden drop in MPG?
Last Poster: Beej in How to Guides / Troubleshooting on Today at 05:22:04 PM
Is there any chance you've got a caliper sticking? Even if its only sticking a bit it can cause a big MPG decrease.

Look out for 1 wheel being particularly dirty and might be really hot after decent length journeys as well.

Otherwise as above probably just the weather.

Re: MFD2 - RNS510 version P non DAB
Last Poster: Shoduchi in Sat Nav and Car Audio on Today at 04:50:03 PM
It's the latest version so it'll have more new roads than the previous. That's what new map versions have, new roads or updated changes to the existing roads. New roundabouts and that sort of changes.
