Was meant say bumper. I work as a paint sprayer and see this all the time in the winter, when something has just been painted and put out in the cold weather the very next day everything apart from what has been painted will be frozen.  :thinking:
That's interesting - I wonder if that is because the paint is degassing? I've always read these posts on DetailingWorld about how you shouldn't seal paints until they had a while to cure (don't ask me how long, though!). I thought most paints used these days are water based, so that's even more weird?

I bow out to someone with greater knowledge...!

Well would be the build date. But the only certain way to find one would be having to email the seller and getting them to check, not ideal I know but if you compose a template and fire it of to a few beakers it should pay off.

Frustrating as I recently started breaking a R32 but let the badge go with the boot and it was a 3d soft close  :sad1:

Yeah the n205 was £98.40 from vw. Same part number as you mentioned. Any suggestions on the easiest way to find an air leak? Cheers.

UPDATE:

I've reinstalled the adjustable droplinks, the noise is gone after softening the suspension.
Seems that the CH steering wheel control module was defective, I'm back on mine now, now everything works again (power-steering, cc stalk) except the paddles.
Today I did a wheel alignment and immediately after the car pulls to the left and ESP is interfering, I had to disable it.
I thought this is because I did a G85 recalibration yesterday (to get the power steering back) with no wheel alignment after installing the AST suspension. I tried to recalibrate G85 control module again, but at some point I did something wrong and now I'm left with this: 



Anyway, I haven't bothered anymore with this, I will change the steering wheel control module again in one week so I will have to do it again, I just hope that it will solve the pulling to the left and ESP problem.
In the meantime I left my car at the shop to get a front splitter, rear wing, bonnet/fender vents and rear wiper delete. I've done all this quickly because it started snowing and it was my last opportunity to move it on summer tires.
The new RS4 fuel pressure regulator it is on it's way and I got these thingies:
