Nothing done today, but was asked today by a complete stranger if I wanted to sell him my car.   No chance  :grin:

Good job.  I would have sprayed some zinc spray on those bare hubs personally as they do like to rust!

I did
Even put some anti seize on the hub bolt cap/cover edge as that seized too when trying to remove the old one

Good man  :happy2:  First time I took my rear wheels off after buying the car, I had to hammer/kick the damn things off because of corrosion!!

Just fitted the RS3 air ducts to my S3/Passat front control arms. I used the following part numbers:
-vent: 8P0 863 149 A and 150 A
-bolt: N104 222 03 (x2)
-nut: N 907 611 02 (x2)
-aluminium tube from the RS3: 8P0 864 133 (x2)

After torquing the bolts and nuts there's still a bit of wiggle in the vent. Anyone else has done this and know that it's expected to be this way? 🤔

I preferred to remove the OEM dust shields.

Do you know how much of a difference these make?

Rear brake job as the pads were down to 4mm.  I don't like wearing them right down at the back as the calipers are pretty crap for lifespan when that happens.
I didn't realise VW did 'eco' pads.  Half the price, but half the bite I expect, so stuck with GTI ones, which are made by Ferodo.



I also bought a pair of shields to replace my rattling ones, but didn't realise I had to remove the bearing/hub assembly to fit them  :doh:  Annoying as I'd already done the hardest part - removing the caliper carrier bolts - before coming to that realisation!   So instead I opted for a repair washer for now.  I'll save the shields for when I do the rear discs and have a pair of bearing bolts to hand.



Fitted stiffer Eibach coilover springs.  425lb/inch at the back and 450lb/inch at the front.  Surprisingly no loss of ride quality, but flatter cornering  :smiley:

Installed rear euro outer tails and wired them up as they would be if the car wasn't sold in NA.  Added a euro badge to the front grill.  Rear fog on order.

I know rusty arches has been done to death but I'm a little sad!

I washed my car and saw this on my front drivers side whee arch.  I know it's only a tiny tiny bit of bubbling, but I've taken a photo to see how quick it progresses.  I'm holding out for it being a few paint splodges that I haven't noticed over two years... :(

AGGHHHHH I can't figure out how to upload a photo.  Does anyone care to help?

Had an oil service plus new plugs and red coils. The brakes were overhauled with Endless Mx72 pads / steel hoses / bronze bushes / ATE fluid and the restrictor removed from the clutch bleeder block. Will clean the MAF / cam timing sensors over the weekend and also give it a machine polish and waxing.
