These are good for low riders and extra height lift.

I would say that even with stock ride height youd struggle to get up those.

Love the colour, there was one local to me but it was manual so I passed on it, but it did look sweet

Yes mines a Manual, I would have settled for either Gearbox although I think I would get bored with DSG maybe? I will never be launching the car off the mark and enjoy usi

UPDATE...

Didnt get it.. It went for a bit over twice what I was willing to pay..
Must have been very little wrong with it.

The cold weather definitely has an impact... tank to tank currently I'm getting 34, in the summer I got 37. 70% of the time it's cruising at 50 in 6th in traffic, hence the higher figures.

Shadow blue is such a good colour and the best colour  :wink: especially when the sun shines on it  :smiley:

A set of Edition 30 alloys would be very nice on shadow blue as they have a darker finish, although I might be selling my

You've got to start with a scan (cheapest first) as plenty people want to bail out of their vehicle first sign of a bill over £500.

Find time to do your brakes or you may as well not bother going on your trackday from my experiences.

Brakes are the no1 factor on the track day that fail / cause lack of enjoyment.
takes a couple of hours to fit i'm sure you can find the time...  :happy2:

It's possible that there could have been a diesel spill or leak on the tarmac as I lost my reno gt on a round about and I wasn't even doing 10mph ended up in the curb of the round about and cars stopped all over the place probably wondering what happened  :signLOL:

Strange hesitation under load
Last Poster: K1NGY14 in How to Guides / Troubleshooting on Today at 07:41:53 PM
Hi everyone,

I have a bit of a strange problem with my 08 GTI. Basically when the car is accelerating under load (heated seats on and heater on high) I get a slight hesitation around 1500/2000 rpm, but after that it's smooth right through the rev range.

I have recently had my DV changed so that can't be an issue, I have also had the car scanned with VCDS and i

Just a question though, do the golf with the 10 speaker pack come with a factory amp?

I read there was one under the passenger seat but haven't looked myself?
I have the 10 speakers but no underseat amp - that was an optional extra I believe.

Other point to note is that the headlights had a fly eye tint on before I bought the car, this has left a residue on the lights - I imagine a restoration kit would shift this, it's never bothered me or affected the light, they've passed the mot and not really noticeable but thought best to point out.
