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

You mean the T20 Torx? If its not there then someone has unscrewed it previously well beyond the 12 turns to pull out the blank. Can you pull the bank out fully away from the car?
If you can then I'#039m afraid your gonna have to remove the door skin completely and replace the door handle mechanism. 1K0837886A

That solves the mystery of the old system being on sale!
Good fit with the bumper - how loud is it with it being non-res?


Hi, yeah the old system was just a stop gap having said that is was a really good fit considering the price .as for the Milltek I’ve had a few no

To close this off - 6 months and 4k miles later - it has stopped rattling

I suspect it would have stopped sooner, Lockdown has meant the furthest driven since October is a hand full of 40 mile round trips, otherwise it's just short 3 to 5 mile trips only 4 times a week.

Well @Dan_FR and @Pudding So I picked up the bbt430 I mentioned which came with s3 injectors and a s3 intercooler all in for 1100 euro / 1000 gbp.

As far as the 4wd idea is concerned I’m going to leave it.

The Racingline one is a sack of sh1t.  The one to get is the Vibratechnics.  Vibratechnics make the Racingline one anyway but they (Racingline) specified a durometer that's too stiff.  Racingline don't make anything themselves.  They are overpriced charlatans.
