    Thank you. So far no complains with the discs. The gear knob is a one-off from CDIY. Made out of recycled skateboards.

    Recaros painted with Furniture Clinic products. Changed the color from gray to light cream. Not quite sure what to do with the plastic parts but they are staying gray for now.

    ...Btw who knows what is that black plastic thingy on the block behind the engine? Something to do with the crankcase breathing. There is some minor coolant and/or oil leak there.

    Here is an easy and cheap fix for noisy window regulators. Whenever I closed the doors while windows were down there was a nasty rattle. Turned out the plastic sliders were worn out and loose. Replaced those and greased the guides and its all good and silent.

    GTI UK Passenger mirror code

    I still suggest to get a second hand manual mirror from Ebay or where ever you can find it. I payed something like 15€ of mine. Those parts get expensive from a dealer.
