I treated it to a fresh set of plastic valve caps as I have gotten so fed up of the fancy alloy ones corroding onto the valve threads!

Vaseline will keep the corrosion at bay

Popped into the local JCT600 body clinic for a rust warrenty investigation for front offside wheel arch rust bubbles.  The guy said they are rejecting everything these days, so I'm not holding out much hope.  He also said that the wing has been painted in the past to the chance of VW covering the repair is pretty much zero.  How much are we looking at to replace the wing then?

To add to this, someone with a towbar (I'm assuming) as reverse into my bumper and driven off.  Got a chunck of paint missing and a cracked bumper. FFS!  So frustrating trying to keep a car nice!

Bought some Xenon's/depo ... spent 2 hours on the following - took front of the car off, eventually got to the bottom screws, and took the adaptors out (that was a git to do)... didnt realise that i needed a 12 pin (i have 10), it drained my battery and now the car will not start - had better days on the car!   :grin:

Changed my long serving Varta OEM VW battery for the latest version of almost the same battery from Varta via Tayna batteries. The old one was just tired really and not broken so has lower cranking and capacity values. Sorted for the next 11 years  :happy2: I also would never have thought I would have used one of those wierd Dad xmas present sockets to undo a rusty rear tray bolt, but it worked  :happy2: :happy2:

Cheers, Rip.

Passed my MOT with no advisories :happy2:

Fitted a Pinoeer SPH-DA120 after months of deliberation over what to replace the old unit with. Now wondered if I should get a sub or Focal 3 ways in the door....

Nice, can you drive it when its that low, or is that for when you're parked up only?

Backs could drive that low as nothing is touching the front drivers side sits on the driveshaft so couldn’t drive at that height

Time out time out was going on this site!

Also there seems to be no Admins here, been a member for some time and I'm unable to post anything.........

Lucky our MK5 GTI's are more reliable than this site!
