Good looking car Raj, nice subtle range of mods! Quantum can be had from TPS for reasonably cheap as well, if you have a good one they might even give you discounts on parts.

These bits need changing





£5 Bluetooth mod. Stuck a Bluetooth fm transmitter in the 12v port in boot. Bluetooth audio at its finest.

Clever idea with the bluetooth, been thinking of getting one myself. The interior door handles, switches etc are available at TPS and they are cheap from memory mate.

Nice one @Molesy  :happy2:.  Gonna check my local TPS to see what they're priced at.

Sticking it in the back freed up some valuable space at the front. Can finally close the hatch where it use to be.  £5 I think I got mine from EBay. Gotta love a cheap mod  :grin: :grin:

12mm Bimecc hubcentric spacers with 40mm radius extended bolts added to the back

The spacers are from here:
http://www.cmwheels.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=65_230&product_id=1084

Took to my local tyre shop to get fitted.







Satisfied with how it sits now. ..  :happy2:  Was thinking of adding some camber to the rear but having looked at it, I've decided not to.





Stanced out nicely  :evilgrin:

Nice motor.

Cheers for sticking the link up for spacers, looking at getting rears for mine as it really doesn't look right as standard.

Unsure whether to go for 12mm or 15mm? Thinking 12mm is the safer bet for when I get round to lowering it.

@Caspersmith. Thanks man, and no worries. It varies with different people, some say 15mm are fine, some say it can cause rubbing. I personally went for 12mm just to be on the safe side.

Wanted to make sure my rear arches weren't affected by the weight of having 3 people in the back. Mines lowered by 20mm too.  I recently drove to Manchester and back with 4 people in the car and had no issues whatsoever. Tbh i felt it handled better with the spacers added:happy2:  :happy2: P.S I also got told on here that 5drs were heavier on the rear - not 100% but might help you decide.

Had a few bits sorted on the golf, after touching 110k.
Full service
Cam Chain and Tensioner replaced (excluding the Adjuster Bolt) £366.00

Full Service included:
Quantom 5w 40 oil
New oil, fuel and pollen filters
NGK Spark Plugs
Coolant Flush

Changed my Thermostat too due to having issues getting up to temp. Sat at 60-70c before and now beautifully heats up to temp in 6-7 mins from cold now.

Also had my exhaust heat shield repaired and exhaust adjusted to sit closer to my bumper. Well chuffed with the result

Back to feeling like new again.  :grin:
