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

Hopefully the dealer will replace. If not, I found the Lothian ones listed on eBay to be a good colour match (metallic black) and easy to fit.

Keep in mind lothian are running way behind. Ordered a painted door mirror cover 2 weeks ago and still waiting. They have said the pa

Review bush condition, if there are shot bushes there is no point getting alignment done until those are replaced.

I am sure are is improved alignment settings out there, but the issue will be finding a garage willing to adjust to them- you would most likely be looking for a specialist in wheel alignment.
For their indemnity, the big nationwide garage chains just s

Re: New Rev G DV failed within 50 miles?
Last Poster: breeze in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 10:56:38 pm
The conclusion is that all is well…

Long story short, the app (Car Scanner) that I was using was showing corrected peak boost pressures. In other words it was correctly deducting atmospheric. I thought it wasn’t, so was subtracting 14.5 PSI (ish).

The reason why I thought it wasn’t deducting atmospheric:
- With a brand new Rev G fitted, it showed ~34 PSI


Re: Mk7 steering wheel into mk5 gti
Last Poster: spb in Cosmetic/Interior Modifications on Yesterday at 08:13:10 pm
Using the car more and more at the track and less on public roads I decided to swap the chunky mk5 GTI steering wheel for a thinner easier to grip, especially with racing gloves, mk7 GTI steering wheel.
I went thru the thread 2 times but I'#039m still not sure if I got this right. I can get even a mfsw with cruise mk7 steering wheel and just the buttons will not work but paddles


Re: Question from Korea! It's About Fitment Between GTI & Jetta
Last Poster: LC5F in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 07:13:09 pm
The tricky part will be cutting the Jetta screen out

Quite fond of Korea - a lock down habit, that has stayed is a breakfast of Nongshim Shin Ramyun Noodle - the chillies give a great endorphin kick!

Thanks man

Been out on a collection of parts today after winning on eBay.

6x Team Dynamic Pro Race 1.2 18X9 wheels. Not sure of the offset will have to measure them.

4 came with Dunlop Direzza 235/40/18 would have preferred 245 but for the price paid on the lot I won’t complain!

2 came with Yokohama AO52 in 245/40/18

Haha, the previous owner put a Parrot in mine, the cabling was truly a mess. Thankfully someone else sorted it for me. Got an RNS315, everything in one box and works fine as I don'#039t use the sat nav.

Most kits are from Bartek but


Re: Buying a Space Saver

As above, if you ever want to fit MK7/S3 front brakes, you will need the 18" space saver.  Or maybe a 17" would clear but not sure if they make them in that size?

Re: 1.9 TDi running completely fine - then shuts off - needs a new engine?
Last Poster: Pudding in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 11:13:11 am
No pressure, as in, compression?

That doesn'#039t necessarily mean the whole engine is goosed. nbsp Does the MK5 version of the 1.9 suffer from the infamous camshaft wear? If the lobes are worn down, that can cause symptoms of no power, nbsp bad starting, etc. nbsp Diesels need very precise fuel metering otherwise they run like crap, or not at all. nbsp I find it hard to believe the cy
