Re: Issues with retro fitting cruise control

Do you have genuine vcds?
Cruise control was one of my first mods, using a clone cable.
The clone wasn't able to activate.
I bought a genuine cable and all was fine.

Although, I think I had some kind of warning or error message, so may not be your issue.

Re: Low knocking noise - any suggestions?

I got mine off ebay for £90 from Deutsche carparts - new old stock - but normally they are £120+VAT from the dealer.   Not the cheapest of punts unfortunately and no guarantee it will sort it on yours, although changing the car is an even more expensive proposition  :laugh:   Perhaps time for DSG?  Although they have their own quirks!

Nice pictures! For sure running on 17" would be better for traction and tyre costs, but at some point you will need bigger brakes and you cannot fit a good BBK under 17". I'm tracking mine with a 6pot AP Racing kit and custom brake ducts, I still have some brake cooling issues on full slicks.

        After many trials I have got some bulbs for rear brake / tail lights.

        Although not a drastic improvement as the above reverse / fog lights, it's a subtle difference, being a slight deeper red and more equally spread through the cluster. See the photo of LED vs element. (Rear cluster is split in two brake and tail lights)

        Price is for a full set of 4.
