Members Rides / Re: My Pirelli

A little update..

fitted some Valeo's....



with inners modded..just need to code the centres out of the outers and were good to go..



And a cheeky side shot, sporting her genuine open fog grilles, smoked sequential mirror indicators in full carbon mirror caps



Its been an expensive start to the year for her, I hardly drive it and after the remap the DMF gave up so a Helix kit has been fitted and then the thermostat wasn't doing its job, so both senders and the stat replaced and all it good in the world. fingers crossed!

I removed the gearbox Superpro insert, as the trade off in comfort outweighed the improvement IMHO.

Next up is probably going to be suspension, oh and I'm on the look out for some under seat draws if anybody has some?

Also, labour to fit rear springs should be low.  It's a very easy job, as the spring is separate from the strut.  I did mine myself in an hour.  I reckon a mechanic could do them in half the time.

Guy I have 2 broken rear springs, can afford to go any lower in ride high. Have standard set up at the moment. VW want £198. Just for the part. What would you suggest? Don’t want to spend thousands.

I guess the GTI ones (GTI mudflaps are different to the std Golf's) will fit the front as the side skirts are the same but I don't think the rear ones will as the ED30 rear valance has a different profile the the standard GTI rear valance.
Ok thanks

Hmm... This doesn't seem to be going well...

I can't read PMs yet - so I've just tried sending a message again. Let's hope that works.

Best off just buying a MK7, will probably cost considerably less than carrying out a 4WD and engine conversion.
