  1. Jamie's black GTI (now Raven Blue)

    the blue is lush. especially if the paint is decent.
  2. for a bonnet they will probably blend it into the A pillars, Wings and top of bumper if they do it properly. some shops will just spray the bumper.
  3. Stef's laser blue GTI

    Sounds like a decent plan. Not Many untouched ones about anymore. Ive done a few things to just update the look on the interior which can be changed back easily. Ive got some BBS to go on and BC coilovers on the way and that is it nothing else happening to mine mods wise.
  4. Stef's laser blue GTI

    Looks well nice. im going to head to halford on my way home and get some. thanks for the info. This looks really clean. I love the gti's in blue i have a raven blue one myself. you looking to keep it standard or modified?

    I have managed to get this sorted now and the car is back on the road 5 new wheel nuts and it was all ok
  6. I am having an issue with my rear drivers side hub. I was undoing the bolts to take the wheel off and disaster struck, the bolt snapped. The last person to do them up was a garage. C***s. I undid the other three with little success. two more broke. I have managed to get all the bolt threads out. i am now having an issue that i have bought new bolts but in two of the holes the bolt doesn't sit flush against the rim when it is on. I took a wheel bolt from the front of the car and put it in the back. i had the same issue. i then tried to put the wheel bolt back in the front where it belonged and it now doesn't fit... any ideas or advice or help would be appreciated.

    Have you done it before on a gti? if so did you get a genuine hub? or aftermarket?

    Thank you all for your replies. Ill grab some picks when i can but i paid £4.47 for the new bolt from vw so it deffo the right one. Im planning on a whole refresh but until i can get another axle i wont be doing it. unless you have a complete gti rear axle? haha Only that wheel as they changed the tyre. Tomorrow the car is going up on jack stands and i will check all the wheels. theres only one guy i trust to do work on my gti and thats AUTOSHACK in Suffolk. Bit of a drive for me and hes a VW specialist. Hes worked on Claytons tornado red gti a bit aswell. It is a garage where my mate works so its a touch awkward. I have made him buy new wheel bolts for that wheel. I had a knock at the back end but I found it to be a loose bolt on the rear damper which connects to the rear axle. Thats what me and my other mate think. Would it be worth taping out the threads to clean them up?

  24. Headlight polish. Before and after :)

    would you recommend possibly starting with something like a 400/600 grit? would the clear coat idea not work? ive seen people do it on plastic headlights didnt know if they would work on gti headlights
