Car look's awesome! I assume you can fit a TTS engine cover even with an aftermarket Intake?

Cheers mate! Yes, the TTS one will only go on with an aftermarket intake as the current cover has the intake built into it  :smiley:

Saw some pictures of this the other day.... taken by my dad of all people!

Think he's doing some work at your place? Looked lovely in the photos anyway!

Yes, my old man did mention!

I've just dropped you a PM regarding some VCDS work  :happy2:

New page, new pics;

Nice one mate!

I did see that BCS are running a Black Friday sale. Christmas could get very expensive, very quick.

No "update" as of yet, but been collecting bits and pieces ahead of my deep clean planned for Christmas.

High temperature paint, hoping to give the calipers a tidy up, along with clean/dress the inner arches.

New sill protectors. Been wanting these for ages, as mine are quite scabby from previous owners, but only had two options;


i) Buy the cheap Chinese replicas at £50 for the pair

ii) Buy the genuine articles from VW @ £70 EACH


Contacted Lockwood International (who do the Golf 7 R sill protectors popular on VWROC) but they don't make them for the 6R as there is no demand to warrant designing etc.


Very luckily found two genuine protectors on eBay yesterday, brand new in the box. And the best bit... £29 delivered! Chuffed.


Looking forward to getting things fitted. Just waiting on the new decals for the calipers, should be with me tomorrow.

I'll get some photos up later, been busy beavering away over Christmas!

Cheers bud. Truthfully, condition was good but I'm very OCD and so I saw a lot of room for improvement. Externally it's clean (aside from usual stonechip or two and a few wheel grazes - soon to be fixed!) but inside needed a little TLC. I've slowly been replacing the trims bit by bit, will be better than factory when I'm done  :happy2:

A friend called around in his Mk4 R32, swapped his wheels back to standard:

Also, Mr Postman delivered something today. PolarFIS Advanced "Kessy Edition"

29/30 Dec 2016 by Ollie Dunstall, on Flickr

29/30 Dec 2016 by Ollie Dunstall, on Flickr

Plugged it straight into the computer and updated the software. Hopefully get it installed this weekend. For those who don't know, it displays an additional screen on the MFD and allows you to view over 150+ engine parameters, i.e. AFR, Boost etc.

Didn't really intend to buy it just yet, but managed to get one brand new unused for a good price off a fellow VAG owner who no longer wanted to install it.

FINALLY, a recent favourite photo:

Better late than never I guess...

07.01.2016

Service time.

Car has just ticked over 50k. I had the DSG, Haldex, Brake Fluid & Major Service completed at VW last year within a week of buying it at approx. 43k. I also had the car put back to time/distance servicing, as it was previously on a Longline service plan.

Therefore, this year, minor service and also timing belt and water pump were due. I held off with the plugs - although not due, I will be replacing them to NGK BKR7EIX soon.

- Oil Service (switched to 5w40 which is recommended for the TFSI, especially as I have plans to map it this year. Went with Total Quartz 9000 fully synthetic).
- OEM Air & Oil Filters
- OEM Genuine VW Timing Belt
- OEM Genuine VW Waterpump

Luckily a friend is an Audi technician, and therefore can get me parts at trade price plus install for me.

I also thought it was a good time to change the cam follower. For those who may not know, this sits small tappet sits on the cam lobe behind the fuel pump. Although it's not a 'serviceable item' so to speak, it's well worth replacing and periodically checking. They are prone to wear over time, some worse than others, and if not replaced can wear through and cause damage to the camshaft.

DSC_0138 by Ollie Dunstall, on Flickr

Above is mine after 50k. I'm pretty sure this is the first time it has been replaced.

Finally, I managed to borrow his garage to fit my PolarFIS Advanced:

DSC_0144 by Ollie Dunstall, on Flickr

So far, so good. Install was a PITA. I opted to fit it via the driver cubby hole, move the fuse/relay board slightly and reach right back to the CAN gateway. The main struggle was getting to the CAN, once I'd located it I managed to install it within 30 seconds. Plug and play.

DSC_0146 by Ollie Dunstall, on Flickr

Truthfully I've not had much time to use it yet, but it's super easy to use and should come in handy later down the line.

DSC_0142 by Ollie Dunstall, on Flickr

Hopefully I'll get some time this weekend to explore the full list of features.

One final image from when the roads weren't as salty!

Thanks for looking :afro:
