Never even thought of doing that Git!  I'll try it out in the morning.

I don't but if worst comes to worst I could get a hold of one

take the one out the other side that works and use that to test then you will know 100% if its the bulbs i have even had 2 nightbreaker lazers that were  broken really pissed me off  worth a check to be sure.

do you have a multimeter to check for continuity and voltage? make sure its getting to the bulb in the first place?

Mk5 General Area / How much is my gti worth
« Last post by Mickymurf on Yesterday at 10:25:29 PM Started by Mickymurf  »
Hi guys putting my golf gti up for sale once I get a few issues sorted and was wondering how much I should ask as checking eBay and the likes the price seems to vary massively I know they are some rough ones out there and some absolute minters I’d say mine in good to very good but not a minter

it’s a 2006 with 99k, dsg totally standard
5 door, black in colour and the body works in good condition getting it machined polished this week, it’s got a full service history either main dealer or specialist got a file full of receipts for work done,
It’s on 18’ monzas that have been re sprayed in gunmetal last week, with matching toyo proxes with good tread?

In the last 18 months or so  i have had a new turbo fitted, cambelt and tensioner kit, new alternator, all by vag technik in Manchester and it’s had a full service in the last 500miles,

Only issues is rear wiper has never worked in my ownership and the airbag light warning light

I was thinking between £4000-£4500?

Only selling as getting married and we already have a smax for the family so need to raise funds

Here’s a pic before wheels and machine polish

cheap bulbs can do this are you getting decent bulbs??

also if you have tried a new bulb that bub could be faulty try another its common for new bulbs to be broken in transit even more so cheaper brands.

also the wires could be dodgy its easy to pull a wire when fitting some bulbs

Honestly I just bought the halfords branded twin pack just until I ordered proper ones but I guessed because neither of them worked, its probably something else like the wiring?  Or is it pretty common for two cheap bulbs not to work?

I'll order some Osram's in the meantime and see if the problem is the cheap bulbs.  Here's hoping lol

Just some follow up pictures, cam follower comparison, the engine bay clean and my drivers seat after the use of the colour match seat polish lil bit shiny for my liking so used it sparingly.

Also finally got my rear light brightness back to normal after a lot of fettling with VCDs and the daytime running lights section.

Mk5 General Area / Brake fluid for everyday fastroad use?
« Last post by Christiank on Yesterday at 06:54:37 PM Started by Christiank  »
Hi guys..

So I did buy some genuine VW brake fluid to flush my system with when the brakes are changed front and rear … however I guess there's something better out on the market than the fluid VW has to offer?

The car is used as a daily driver and some fast road use over longer distances - I've got "NQS BBK" setup front and rear.. Both sets are completely rebuilded :)
I guess it'll never reach boiling point since the car never see a track day but I still want the best suitable brake fluid out there..


Which brake fluid are you guys using?

Castrol React Performance Fully Synthetic
Motul RBF 600 Factory Line Racing Fully Synthetic
Millers Oils Racing Brake Fluid 300 Plus
ATE TYP 200 Brake
