Spent the day sorting out my stereo.

Headunit: Kenwood DDX 4015
Active sub: Alpine SWE815
Fitting kit: Connects2 fitting kit

I connected the sub to the busbar (only needs a 10amp fuse). I had to rob a nut from my barbeque, as the one I bought was too big!.

Re: My 2007 Tornado Red GTi - decided on remap and springs
« Reply #17 on: February 13, 2016, 10:56:50 AM »
Not updated in a while....

Had the wings replaced under warranty due to rust.  Dealer did a spot on job, didn't need blending so saved me a few quid.

Got a new Varta E44 battery delivered from Tanya, very good service. 

My rear springs have some corrosion, so I've put an order in for some Eibach Sportline springs.  Got a bargain as I know someone who works for Eibach. 

Also, I've decided to get booked in at Rtech for a Stage 1 remap.  I've been thinking of nothing else since I bought the car!  Going to wait a few months till the spring.

Re: My 2007 Tornado Red GTi - wheel refurb

So had my wheels finally powder coated.  I left them to get too corroded, so the coater had a bit of difficulty getting a 100% smooth finish in places. Nevertheless he's done a great job.

They look good! I'm planning on getting mine refurbished and powder coated in the next few weeks.

Mine aren't corroded like that, just curbed.

Just replaced the cam follower after 40k.  The photo below makes it look worse than it is.  Black coating has come off, and it has circular minor pitting.
