As you know we have moved to a more reasonably priced server.

I have setup this PayPal pool. Don't go crazy  :rolleye:  I think the hosting will cost 20 to 25 a month but maybe less.

I would also like to add an anti spam subscription which will cost 8 a year. DONE

Of course any flash whether a dealer update or remap will count.

Check the wiring going from the a post to the drivers door, not uncommon for it to break and cause problems.

Hi, yes got to admit I was surprised how clean it was inside and out for the miles. The stereo doesn'#039t work unfortunately and is only in there to stop the rattle of the wires until I get a new one. The guy who sold me it said it only needed a wiring harness, turned out to be a lie and the unit is knackered (had it bench tested). Shame as it'#039s still about £400 in Halfords. Will ch

I would be suspicious. They have replaced bits for codes suggesting a lack of fuel pressure. I don'#039t want to suggest this seller is sketchy...but I have often seen people selling the MK5 due to cam follower(CF) failure. I have seen some sellers go as far as saying the CF was inspected and is good. When actually, they found it worn away and only installed another CF. When one lets

Sadly it didn'#039t help nbsp :confused: back off hols now and I'#039m going to take it down to the garage to see if they can help any further. They were getting a new diagnostic machine last week and seemed confident it would help. They don'#039t charge unless they fix so I'#039ve nothing to lose.

Last Poster: PKGTI in Mk5 General Area on February 24, 2021, 08:57:59 pm
Not sure if they will be ideal for track work... probably better than stock but considering the price might be better options. But if comfort is the highest priority they may be right for you. perhaps someone who has them or has a comfort biased setup can comment.

Hi @Andy It was hung on 5238, I successfully upgraded to 5274 and it was still hung.

@Shoduchi Good idea, I'll see if I can find the old HDD I took out shortly after I purchased it.

Tips for cutting twintercooler hot side hose?
Last Poster: M in Performance Modifications on February 23, 2021, 07:54:39 pm
A while ago I bought an Airtec twin spec intercooler for my MK5. Like the Forge kit, the silicone hoses are sent oversized as the kit is designed to fit multiple cars.

I managed to trim the cold side hose perfectly, but the hot side hose was a bit of a nightmare. In an attempt to correct a pretty bad kink I ended up trimming the hose to the point where it was slipping of


Possible fix for low fuel pressure faults....
Last Poster: ROH ECHT in Mk5 General Area on February 23, 2021, 06:22:00 pm
This is something becoming more common. People seeing; fuel cuts, car is cutting out on idle, low on power, won'#039t restart for a while, low fuel pressure codes, LPFP fuel pressure is found low in the data with high duty cycles.

Many times this gets misdiagnosed and many parts are being replaced while no remedy is to be found. Parts like; LPFP_LPFP control module_fuel fil

                  Edition 30 Rear Valance -Pearl Black (Genuine Part)

                  Single Image

                    Collection Only

                    For Sale is my old Pearl Black Edition 30 rear valance. This clips into the upper section of your rear bumper.
                    This was removed from my golf due someone backing into me at low speed causing surface cracks. (they offered to pay for a new valance)

                    The surface cracks are around the the number plate area which I've tried to photo the best i can.

                    The exhaust surround has been bonded back on by the body shop after an encounter with a high kerb a few years ago.

                    Other than the surface cracks and some minor scuffs, the valance can go straight on. You will need a towing eye cover though.

                    All clips to clip the valance upper bumper section are intact and there is no sign of warping.

                    This is a genuine valance and was fitted to my ED30 from the factory.
