Re: Brake Confusion!
Last Poster: r5gtt in Performance Modifications on Today at 01:57:38 AM
Hi guys I'd like to ask a question re brakes as we're on the subject so not to post a new thread  :signLOL:
My leading pistons are the smaller ones at the top and was wondering if I was to swap the pipes and nipples over so that the bigger pistons are at the top and would there be any difference in braking?.

PFA thanks

Re: Very strange folding mirror problem
Last Poster: SI-R32 in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 10:11:12 PM
Concentrate on drivers mirror for a moment, get it folded in on the switch, now disconnect the mirror plug from the door module so it remains folded, now using the switch get the passenger mirror to fold in, turn off ignition, plug driver side mirror back into door module should now both work  in tandem

Re: Best place to advertise an Edition 30
Last Poster: Dave J in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 10:04:54 PM
The forum is free advertising (once you have enough posts), so given an ED30 is maybe a bit niche to anyone not really a VW follower, you could do worse than a for sale post on here with lots of info and detailed pics of the condition of your car.

Whilst the ED30's are now getting on in miles, and I do see a few low milers out there - I note very few one owner examples.

    Hi guys I fitted these to my mk5 but I'm now in a mk7 so they no longer fit into the doors.

    The sound quality on these is incredible, they really are as good as the reputation suggests.

    The speakers are in excellent condition and come with mounting rings to fit the mk5/6 front doors.

    No box, grilles or tweeted mounts unfortunately but if your fitting into OEM tweeter locations they fit great with some hot glue or double sided foam tape.

    The woofer sizes are 6.5" and 4". The power handling is so high they are like mini subs. The quality of the set is way beyond the norm.

    RRP is 650 and cheapest online is around 570.

    Any questions at all please ask.
