interior was in need for a refresh so
re-trimmed interior seats, door-cards and armrests with leather and interlagos cloth



Where did you get the cloth from?

They seem very good, they don't come with any foam layer attached, just the cloth.

Booked in with Rtech for December, going for the inlet and injector cleaning alongside a map.

I have all the hardware for stage 2+ so it should feel a decent jump from standard.

And after speaking to Rtech I have just fitted the RAMAIR oversize intake. I'll have to see if I can live with the noise, lots of whoosh, whoosh.

Polybushed the rear anti roll bar this evening and replaced the drop links. But I had to cut the drop links off and use a dremel on the nuts that bolt the drop links to the chassis.  Finally I had to dremel of the lower bolts on the anti roll bar brakcets, bend them out a bit to remove the bar and shot bushes before bending back in place and using greased stainless steel m8 x bolts with matching nuts. Took me about 4 hours in total and a lot of phaffing as it's so rusty under these everything has seized.

Not looking forward to drilling out the ones on the front.

As a forum newbie and having had my gti for only 2 months...everyday has been doing something to it!
Today is rip out the newly installed stereo yet again to finally connect up the DAB aerial and the microphone that I forgot! :rolleye:
Hopefully I wont be doing anything but drive it for a while now!

Removed the rear arch liners so I could have a tidy up and found a bit of surface rust coming through so have rubbed back to good metal (luckily no holes!) anti rust primer and then some satin black tough paint to keep it all good. Arch liners all cleaned up too just waiting for the paint to dry and will refit with some lowering springs to go on too! Paint looks shiny in the picture because it’s still wet but will dry really nice 👌🏼
