All this talk of brakes prompted me to stick them on during a bored moment.  R/PP/S3 calipers with Clubsport S discs.

Very easy to fit and there is no apparent penalty from the increased weight, it drives exactly the same as the stock brakes.  The pedal is pretty crap though.  I'm hoping that is just down to bedding in but I will take it to VW for a full brake and clutch flush anyway, just to be sure.

Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

Cambelt, water-pump and thermostat for £303... Alright I suppose.

They also diagnosed why it sounds like a goddamned diesel. Turns out it's something much very expensive to fix. £854.86 with labour and VAT

A timing chain tensioner and adjuster. Woo

It required its third battery today. Listened to the radio while parked for 45 minutes, actually started it after 30 minutes to make sure it was OK, and then it wouldn't start fifteen minutes later. Likely would've lasted a bit longer once jumped but lacked trust in it. First two batteries lasted 11yr and 6mon.

That's good battery life. Hope your new one last as much. :happy2:

Yeah, about as good as it gets. 6.5 years on the original and 5 years on a dry cell Optima. Went back to an OEM battery from the dealership on this third one.

Been working through the engine, refreshing a lot of tired sensors........but last week I changed the MAP sensor being one of the last original sensors on the 2005 car.........no error reported, apart from lowish mpg for town driving and a continuously sooty exhaust that I have to clean every week.

Well a week on and there is more fuel left in the tank, doing the same daily trips (I used to just survive a week on half a tank) and the exhaust tips are very clean still amazingly.

Will keep monitoring, but impressed so far. The engine must have been running rich and the MAP sensor was stating high pressure in the system when it was not on boost.

Have you got a part number for it?

This is it;  038-906-051-D...do not get the 038-906-051-C because it is a 3 bar sensor and will not work unless tuned to use it.

Didn’t you change this yourself? Was a bitch of a job? Thanks
