I currently have Bilstein B4 with Eibach which gives a very subtle drop on the front but too much on the back for me. Currently waiting for some B3s to replace the Eibachs then it's back to slightly better than OEM after 185k miles :D

Hey, guys. Many models break down. Especially new models of air conditioners. I don't even know what to do.

Re: AC condenser replacement cost?
Last Poster: Cosmos in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 03:15:01 pm
I replaced my ac condenser with a genuine one from tps after trying 2 different ones from euro car parts but they wouldnt fit unless i kinked the pipes at the drivers side. Really bad fitment. The genuine one went straight on. Would have to check my receipt to how much it was but off the top of my head think it was around £350.

Re: VWR Racingline spring and damper kit
Last Poster: chimp400 in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 10:48:48 am
I have the Vwr kit as you know but if funds allow I'd go for the Bilstein kit listed above.
Should be fit and forget as the quality is great.
I don't have any issues with the Vwr kit personally, I just love bilstein stuff too!

Hi there. So I have the exact same faults on my 2005 Audi A3 TDI. I saw they actually make repair kits now online for that plastic gears. Not sure that is even worth it when I can get a whole new one for about 100 EURO.

So, question if you don'#039t mind. I have the codes of course, the check engine light, and the fan fuse keeps blowing. But, I also have some weird symptoms

Anyone using a OBD2 Splitter?
Last Poster: blingsta in Technical Workshop on June 22, 2021, 02:39:54 pm
hi all

at the moment, i have my P3 gauge plugged into my OBD2 Port.
im awaiting delivery of my xtrons android head unit nbsp :grin: and cant wait to use the Torque app... nbsp  so rather than unplugging my P3 gauge, can anyone confirm if they have ever used an OBD2 splitter? nbsp i know it might be a overkill to have the P3 gauge and the Torque app gauges running, but i'#039d r

I bought the cheap replacement that looks the same. Fitment not quite as good where the clips attach at the top but otherwise can't complain.

WANTED - Mk5 Gti Airbox & Engine cover
Last Poster: Rfox in Mk5 General Area on June 22, 2021, 12:22:35 pm

Thanks to someone recently driving into the side of my car the insurers have decided to write it off as a total loss.

I have a Forge air box fitted which I want to keep for my next car so I need a standard Mk5 Gti Air box, engine cover and associated pipework as cheaply as possible if anyone in the Bournemouth/ Dorset area can help that would be great.

Re: Door handle loose AND unable to remove locking tumbler/barrel
Last Poster: McNaughty in Mk5 General Area on June 22, 2021, 12:03:10 pm
I have just completed this job on MK5 GTI rear door, you have to pull the handle open when moving that bolt, otherwise the mechanism fails inside the door, which means the door skin has to come off again! Unscrew that bolt 12 times only, this will give you the movement needed. You have to pre arm the handle using a pair of pliers pull the spring on the actuator and put in the handl
