  1. 🤦🏽🤦🏽🤦🏽
  2. I used to put the back seat down and chuck Ghillie, a 37kg Flatcoated retriever in the back, and go on camping road trips. Alas she is no longer with us. I have one of the generic adjustable dog guards that I put behind the rear seats so she couldn't annoy me too much. I found it best to remove the base of the rear seats.
  3. I went for: S5 004 Bosch Car Battery 12V 61Ah Type 075 S5004 from Tanya Batteries. £82.95 delivered.
  4. Lower, wheels, GTI interior, keep it clean and enjoy.
  5. A mouse ate all the data. We had to make it sick to retrieve it. Mouse is doing well in Mouse Hospital.

    Lowering Springs

    Slimmer spring profile to the front: closer/progressive winding to bear the engine weight. Once you get them off you'll see see which go where. Rears are simple. The fronts not quite so as you need to remove the strut to strip the top and slide the spring off. Pretty sure it's tighter coils to the bottom.
  7. I prefer the benefit of better tyre choice over the OEM tyre size any day. ...you could always get a second set of wheels and run 195 RainSports for wetter months and 205 T*yos for summer show time.
  8. Vredestein Sportracs http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Vredestein/Sportrac-3.htm UniRoyal Rainsports http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Uniroyal/Rainsport-3.htm 👍🏽
  9. Brand new OEM rear exhaust section for a GTI: £50 delivered brand new Bathurst still in box: £50 delivered
  10. You realise there is a 50kg roof load limit? Which includes bars and box\rack etc. i use a 370l roofbox on VW roofbars.
  11. You need get reducer or spigot rings to ensure the wheel sits on the flange, which is what centres the wheel, not the bolts. You will need to know the dia. of the wheel centre and get one where the outer = that and the inner is 57.1mm for the flange. https://www.performancealloys.com/accessories/spigot-rings ...different to studs and nuts of old.
  12. Slot mag alloys were the alloys of the 60s
  13. I was looking at a set of 16" BBS RS761, but I'm not sure if I can be bothered. Bit rough too.
  14. I have 10 Bathursts (maybe 11 🧐) Thoughts: 5 to be done OE silver (6 if I have 11) 5 to be done anthracite Sell 5 x BBS RW or 5 Bathursts OE silver 5 BBS RW anthracite sell set of 5 Bathursts Hmmm, decisions, descisions, descisions 🧐
  15. Should I sell mine then? Sure they will fund the refurbs of my two sets of Bathurst. I was thinking of getting them coated in anthracite, but could sell them bare and let the new owner decide 🤔

    lupo tdi

  17. I would say a jubilee clip will be fine.
  18. Thanks. Did a fair bit of fully loaded plodding around in the Arosa seeing as it was only a 1.0.
