Had an issue with a cylinder 3 misfire and sluggishness now and again in 3rd/4th gear at lower speed's. I had a look at the spark plugs first which still looked brand new, so next was the other end where the HT leads connect to the ignition pack or whatever its called .Anyway the third one along looked like this

Couldn't get my phone in to get the inside of the pack properly.

Pretty gross! I gave it all a good clean with contact cleaner and got 90% of the corrosion off. Went out and gave it a good blast and it seem's to have fixed it. Hopefully that is the end of the issues!

Also I've replaced what turned out to be standard passenger window glass that was sticking open and giving the regulator major problems with a gti window that I snagged for a tenner! Can't complain.

Finally,Here's a picture looking not very clean :)

been there with cleaning the contacts.

the problem will quickly return, I suggest replacing both before this happens.

Cleaned the engine bay a week or so ago. First time ever attempting it properly, think it came up pretty nice!

Went to FittedUK at the weekend aswell, Figured it would be rude not to take a pic, even if I was just in the car park. There was some seriously nice Lupos in the show though. Probably not far off 20 of them!

Changed the front discs/pad's aswell and lowered it about another 2cm while I was at it. It's at the height I always wanted now! Very pleased.IMG_20170730_191716_zpsaifbjpug.jpg.3490272d64c9e4cad47c3ce4213882f7.jpg

New wheels look great! As does the exhaust (wish I could make it legal over here :angry:).

Lovely colour.

Will you be swapping some bits over from the black one?

Cheers! Relatively low mileage, leather seats and air con aswell! Got myself a right bargain!

I've only swapped over the Cambridge lights and the Stereo, I'm gonna sell the BBS splits separate and the rest will be staying on the black one. Gutted to lose the exhaust but I don't have the mean's to swap them over unfortunately.

Saw that on ebay. You got that for a good price. Possibly the last ravern blue gti (as in 04 they did not offer it. 05 is laser blue)

Was it on Ebay? didn't realise! I saw it on Auto Trader and it was only up the road so I went and stuck a deposit down sharpish! Considering it's only on 59k with leather seats and air con it was ridiculously cheap, so cheap in fact I wouldn't want to say what I paid for it ha! Didn't know that about the 03's being the last year of Raven blue either, interesting!
