Trying to find my old car
I bought a new 30th edition back in 07 and put my private plate on so I don’t know the factory reg number, it was silver three door and had the dsg gear box.
I bought it from helston vw in Cornwall so the number plat must be WK07 or WL07, I traded it in to castle motors in 2009 so can anyone please help me track it..
All the best

Looking to delete the noise pipe and was after one of the $3 or $4 dollar 1 3/8in expansion plugs the US chaps use...However, in the UK they seem to be non existent, even when searching for 35mm.

Anyone have link for what i'm looking for?

I got my TTE420 in second hand from a fellow Ed. 30 owner. I wouldn't have bought a new one just after buying the LSD, all the parts needed to get it fitted and labour costs. If you have the funds and want more grunt, go for it. It's a good upgrade to a K04 at 370 hp. If you don't want to spend that much on a turbo and you're happy with the current power your car has, consider send

Sorry for resus'ing a dead thread but this happened to me the other day - @WeeChelleGTi , what was your outcome of this?


Re: No more 3door Golf Rs...WTF?
Last Poster: csrigo in Random Chat on Yesterday at 11:55:43 AM
Cheers guys  :smiley:  The wheels on the Corrado are 8x17 Compomotive MO, but I went through several sets of different wheels....and coilover kits, as you do!  They suited the car but were HEAVY!  I do remember Azev As though, classic wheel  :happy2:  

Handling with the R32 engine was OK


Re: Anyone running Michelin Cross Climate all season tyres?
Last Poster: teo_parvu in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 11:50:56 AM
I never liked all season tyres, they can't compare with real winter tyres on snow and they are a bit softer than summer tyres, they wear out faster, no were near the same grip level. They are best on cold dry weather. I had them on my A-Class Mercedes, I'll never use again.
