Another update for the golf managed to get a few things done ...first of all i have managed to replace some of the headlight bulbs just done the usual ..replaced the sidelights for led bulbs. Also changed the main beams for Lunex super yellow bulbs ..at the moment i have not changed the dipped beam but i have put my old hid kit on their for the moment but want to replace that with some led bulbs soon.  I have managed to replace the fog light bulbs for some  led items which are brilliant.

This is the follow up from the previous post ..... also changed a few serviceable item first on the agenda was the Pvc valve  mine was totally gone can't complain really the the date stamped on the old one was 2007 so replaced that with the latest R version courtesy of awesome gti also replaced the gasket which is a no brainier...

Next on the to do list was a simple job  replace the Aux belt ..to be fair the old one was ok but at least i have changed it now and for the sake of £11 its nothing.

Also being playing around with some wheel spacers and have put some 5mm spacers on the front just to bring the wheels out and run inline with the rear.

Last of all i picked a replica Votex front splitter a couple of weeks ago i really wanted a edition 30 one but i was not going to pay £300 for a new one its not the first time i have had a replica splitter i had an edition 30 one on my previous golf and for £130 i can't complain.  I do prefer this one to an edition 30 one.  Also decided i was going to try spray it myself i don't usually spray big items like this but i thought i'd give it a go and if i missed it up i would give it to a professional to sort out ..But to be fair i came out really well considering it came out of a couple of aerosol tins of paint...
