  2. t reg 1.4s probs

    When the throttle pedal is twitching its the throttle body thats correcting. Its trying to stop the engine from cutting out, could be one of several problems, throttle body needs a clean and reset..first thing id try, cures most idle probs on lupos. Then id check breather system, vacuum pipes for leaks (your hunting issue) or if you have access to one, use a scantool or vagcom to see what codes you have, more than likely lambda or egr faults due to the throttle failing. Hope this is helpful. :-)

    Its hardly possible to get a 165 on an 8j, on my borbets I had 195 on a 7.5j and it had a sexy stretch! I could go down to a 185 but it looked better and handled better with the 195s, so in perspective you would struggle to get a smaller tyre than me on a wider rim than me and keep safety and handling... Iv seen and tried silly stretches at work in the past just to push the limits but you start to lose safety, I.e I have fitted a space saver tyre onto a 7j rim just to say "I can do it" but id be stupid to drive on it! Lol

    I had some genuine borbet a 16" on my mk3 golf and there was a part number on the back of one of the spokes, that should be a good sign, plus I think the 15s are copies?! I might be wrong but im sure borbet only made these in 16" Hope this helps!

  10. rear break piston comes off! help,,

    Exactly! You will need a windback tool or if you dont wana buy one, you can use some grips or big pliers to rurn it and some more big grips to compress the piston back into the caliper, it wont work otherwise...
