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

Re: What did you and your MKV do today?

Spent a good chunk of the afternoon running outside to turn the alarm off on my MK5, as it kept going off randomly. Ended up taking the alarm fuse out and giving the connector going to the boot handle a good wiggle, as I think it'#039s down to that failing. It'#039s gone quiet now so hopefully it'#039s fixed itself for now and it'#039s not just a flat battery nbsp :smiley:

Yes, Ar-1 are very good tires but will not work if the track is not dry.

Did you know about Zestino? Good tires for the money.

Help me with a scirocco facelift part #?
Last Poster: drval85 in Mk5 General Area on April 20, 2021, 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 April 20, 2021, 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?
