    A good 01M and new sills both sides. If it doesn't pass MOT next year, I'll be scrapping it too. Shame because otherwise it's a minter.
  3. Nah, it's easier for me to wait till one comes into the right yard and then it's a fiver if I remove it myself.
  4. I hope it isn’t the stalk again, I had that replaced Dec’18 as the fog lights weren’t working it was the stalk which was faulty. Do you want me to ring my local scrappy (Trents) tomorrow to see if they have a window mech for you? They did break a Fox recently.

    Be a couple of weeks but absolutely fine. Need anything for the mk4?
  6. I've gotta find one in a scrappy as I need a window mech (crap rivetted things), I can get a stalk if you're really stuck.

    Launch mode seemed a little underwhelming when I tried it. Was pretty much the same as a standing start in sport.

    Yeah - All the nice stuff people say about the Mk5 Gti is true.... I don't currently have an urge to change anything, its good enough as it is now. DSG is awesome in sport mode, rev matching on downshift in the twisty stuff and throw it into drive and its great in traffic - still need to try launch mode! Cheers Man - will monitor the situation

    That's a nice upgrade,my mate had one manual.He now drives evoques brand new swaps every three years,still says the golf was the best car he has had!
  10. Thank you both for replying and the advice. Yep Rich, wish I’d looked into the origin of the Fox before I bought one for my daughter. It was what she wanted, and having not had a problem with any other VW I’ve owned, I just bought it. Regretting it now though! When VW said they couldn’t get a speedo from Brazil I should have just given up I think. The kill switch is a great idea - thanks. Now just to find out why the first click on the stalk no longer gives me sidelights just dipped beam.

    Mk5 looks nice bud. I did the same thing in my crash. I am having physio on my hand currently my crash was in March so prepare for the long haul with the soreness/stiffness

    Get it checked ASAP... most stuff heals in two. I once broke my hand and didn't bother for about 3 weeks. Then in hospital after they xrayed it, they had to re-break my bones which had begun to heal in the wrong place! With no local' either!!! yes it did.

    Upper, driver's side, rear door hinge please... (to go on my Lupo which is worn out). £5 incl postage?

    I'm breaking a Bora.
  17. LR5V

    GTI Upgrades

    A lot easier to break going outwards, there were a few cuts on the 2nd fingers knuckle, the blood and broken screen confused me at the time - its still sore after 3.5 weeks!
  18. mk2

    GTI Upgrades

    How's your right hand though? I can't believe that punching a windscreen wouldn't break all the bones...!
  19. LR5V

    Depends if you mean Conan the american late night TV presenter or the Barbarian! It was taken to Copart and auctioned off after a week and a half. I was looking into getting it back, but all I could do is pick over the bones, I couldn't get the entire car - the cost in fees for me as joe public to do this was nearly £250 on-top of a bid, there was a good chunk of money in the parts but to quote myself: "weather, lack of time and motivation" + space to store everything was going to be a problem.
  20. mk2

    GTI Upgrades

    Do you still own it? i need some bits...! the scavengers are already out...
  21. mk2

    GTI Upgrades

    Ouch. yeah, you gotta watch for people being helpful... in other countries it's actually illegal to wave people through traffic. For this reason. I'm amazed your hand is ok seeing that mark in the windscreen. Or maybe you're Conan.

    GTI Upgrades

    oh and this is enjoying the Mk5: Extra points for ID'ing the road - I'm not in my usual Scotland!
  23. LR5V

    GTI Upgrades

    No news on the Lupo - weather, lack of time and motivation have been stopping me from fixing the sill The daily: I was on the main road behind - the other car got waved out from this side road by someone being helpful but had not checked the filter lane I was in.. so not my fault Both airbags deployed, I was on the horn with both hands, airbag made my right hand punch the screen and sprained my left wrist. The Golf still drove, the A5 that hit me was dead and had to be pushed. Pay out was surprisingly generous and quick, crash on Thursday evening, money in account Tuesday, so I upgraded to this: Mk5 Gti 2.0 DSG - 86k miles, fully stamped up service book, with the DSG box serviced 5k miles ago. Really high spec, even has a sunroof that apparently is rare Unfortunately it wasn't being used often enough, I am having some binding brake issues. Sadly the 18" monza's are reps. It has a 3" cat back stainless exhaust that is non-resonated - the pops & crackles are nice, especially with the GSG box, but its too noisy, it just drones on the motorway, so its booked in to get it changed to resonated. Only cosmetic issue is a crusty hatch - I picked up a really good replacement in the same Graphite blue - the colour is lovely...however in the rain it is the same colour as wet tarmac!
  24. No offence but there's nothing that VW about a fox, they're South American and a lot of things are very different. Knowing inside and out will get you nowhere on this. Fit a big red kill switch for the battery.
  25. Yesterday
  26. Cheers Lr5v. Are the same guy on mkiv owners? the cars a 1.0 for my daughter and I am looking for a 1.4tdi for me. I was mainly thinking to update the braking system on the 1.0 for my daughter. So was wondering what’s compatible. Seen on here that you need 1.4 hubs to fit anything larger than the 1.0 standard setup
  27. Yeah, all looks normal. Check the voltage in that supply plug on the egr controller. Not sure what it needs to be in there, but i think from memory, it's 0 and 12v when running idle.
