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

Is fine if you’re running twin webers / itbs on a nasp engine with loads of cam overlap but rather synthetic on a turbo car. Not for me either!


Re: Very budget track build

Maybe you can change your rims for a 17'#039 ones? Less weight as the OEM ones are very heavy as far as I know, pro-track are very good on quality-price.

Regarding the tires, this tyre profile still quite good to have a track use but a semi-slick tyre will be a game changer, AR-1 will do a excelent job on it!

Re: MkV GTI HIT 320 HP with A K03
Last Poster: trussingbog5 in Performance Modifications on Today at 11:38:20 am
This sounds super interesting! Do you happen to know if the Shuenk K03 is available in the UK, I've been looking at hybrid turbo options but they don't seem easy to come by here. Sounds like a really good way to hit that 300 mark without having to go K04 + injectors etc.
Can't wait to see the dyno graph!

Re: What did you and your MKV do today?
Last Poster: Stupots in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 04:28:08 pm
@Sebas_theFish Yes, I used the silver Scirocco trim for the main part and a standard panel as the donor for the bit that wraps around the top of the head unit.

I used a Passat control panel, specifically part number 3AA 907 044 BQ.

Good luck!

Help me with a scirocco facelift part #?
Last Poster: drval85 in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 12:03:06 am
Upgraded my cluster to a facelift. nbsp The small trim that fits in front of the cluster doesn’t sit well. I need the facelift scirocco part #, but I can’t even find part diagrams for sciroccos in the USA. Any help would be appreciated!

BBS RS795’s clear NQSBBK?
Last Poster: drval85 in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 12:00:35 am
18x8 et43. I already have a set of RG2’s that are 18x8 et40, but they only clear by 1.5 mm. 

My RG-R’s are 18x8 et43 and they clear easily.  Anyone have experience with the RS795s and a NQSBBK?

Anyone know if these calipers will interfere with a set of BBS RS795’s?  18x8 et43, but the RG2’s I own only clear by like 1.5 mm and they’re 18x8 et40.

Aren't the ST shocks the same and the KW ones but just not made out of stainless?

I can't answer your question but when I replaced mine i fitted poly inserts into the voids.

Hello again !

To everyone struggling with only one side that illuminates, I think I'#039ve got a fix !

You need to solder another little wire between 2 points. Not easy to explain, photos will speak better.

You mean the T20 Torx? If its not there then someone has unscrewed it previously well beyond the 12 turns to pull out the blank. Can you pull the bank out fully away from the car?
If you can then I'#039m afraid your gonna have to remove the door skin completely and replace the door handle mechanism. 1K0837886A

That solves the mystery of the old system being on sale!
Good fit with the bumper - how loud is it with it being non-res?


Hi, yeah the old system was just a stop gap having said that is was a really good fit considering the price .as for the Milltek I’ve had a few no
