Great work mate! :congrats:

And the SALK really surprised me too when I fitted it the first time in my GT Sport. For me any mk5/6 Golf should have it. :smiley:

Mitch you have Salk to the car tonight aswell as a superpro torque bush insert
did you add s3 alloy arms or just swalk

Didn't change the arms just the Salk and torque bush insert mate. The torque bush is just to protect the flex I on the downpipe havnt noticed any difference in gear change although I've only done 10 miles max in the car since.

They are both very easy to fit. I have a ramp and air guns so it took me around 5 mins start to finish but easy diy for anyone with a brain IMO!
And yes you will need wheel alignment after! :)

Yeh it's a known weak spot on these and the polo/fabia base too, but I still wasn't expecting such a big improvement!
Traction is so much better now! And that was on damp roads, havnt really tested it in the twisties as it was dark and wet but can't wait to push it abit :)

Just coilovers or h and r springs now and the car should feel perfectly balanced! Think I'll be tempted to save my penny's for a hpfp and intercooler then

I have no idea mate havnt looked into it yet as it will be well into 2016 before I have the funds as I have a mortgage to pay! lol
I think the peron gets good reviews and for good value I keep seeing 'wellycooler' pop up and I think r tech have started supplying them too but like I said I havnt done my research so cant really give advice

I didn't realise i had been watching your thread lol. Lovely car i regret selling the bbs wheels.

Sounds like i have the same dsg problems you had aswell. Only problem i have i have no codes up.

How much did it all end up costing you for the r32 rear bumper etc if you don't mind me asking.

Think r32 bumper was 150 ish (just lower half replica off eBay) 100 for smooth and paint. And exhaust was pricey cos I went all out and got cat back bcs but if you want to do it cheaper you could just do a backbox delete and get a y pipe made up at any custom exhaust place :)
Easy doable for 350 all in

Just gave the car another service tonight. Screw in the fuel filter housing had rotted away so had to drill it out and replace. Bit annoying but nothing major. Whilst waiting for oil to drain I went round everything with wire brushes and greased so I shouldn't have any issues again :)   

Just ordered tonight and to be fitted at the weekend aswell as heat wrap the evoms cai
R tech twin heat shield
R tech full pcv delete

Andy at r tech development has been really helpful and honest in what I need to buy to achieve what I want to rather than selling me everything he could which is what a lot do!

Next to order Probs at end of next month is
Loba hpfp
Rs4 valve
Wellycooler/peron/s3 cooler

Bit undecided on where to go with the intercooler but it's looking like a wellycooler and just trim My crash bar down :)

Keeping an eye out for cheap s3 rear brakes aswell as the fronts have bedded in and I'm learning just how good they are and gaining more confidence in them when doing really hard braking it feels like the car is doing a 'stopie/endo' and the rear becomes really loose.
I did have new dampers and h&r 30mm springs aswell as new discs and pads front and rear to do next.

BUT my brother bought a steel grey dsg ed30 last month and is eager to get down to r tech for a stage 1 map so I'm trying to get my hardware mods done so we can go down on the same day, so it's all powaaa now :)

Car is taking shape now and I'm enjoying it when the weather isn't too crappy! I'm moving out at the end of this year so wanting to get it where I want it sometime this summer :)
