  1. Pictures added and car is back with me so most things are now available.
  2. Yep, although interior light will go with the headlining as a set
  3. Similar to the last one you bought of me 😂 Maybe less bad to be honest I'll inbox you
  4. How much of the sill do you need and which bit?
  5. Yeah, but if you're collecting you're more than welcome to do the cutting. What are you after?
  6. What's fuel economy like with all the mods? Keep thinking about cams, but the car is still a daily so not sure if it's worth waiting until it becomes a second car.
  7. It was but it's been in storage for 2 years, comes back this weekend so if you send me a message I'll check Still got it
  8. Actually need that bit for my blue one as mine is all cracked, sorry! Leigh, WN7
  9. Well I have fat arms, so this isn't going to be fun. I imagine it may be one of these jobs I'll put off until the door physically falls off
  10. Hi all, Both hinges and check strap on my driver's door have failed, the door will physically lift off and will go all the way back of the wind catches it. Question is, can the hinges be repaired or is it a case of completely replacing them? And if they need to be replaced, does the dash have to come out? Any help/advice appreciated. I LPf anyone has done this before in the North West and doesn't mind helping, I'll pay in beer tokens 😂.
  11. I'll get one for you later
  12. Well it's definitely not as flashy as it once was, but it's still going strong, albeit the bodywork needs a bit of TLC. Hopefully it will get a lick of paint and an OEM+ look in the future, but the plus side is considering it is now on moon miles, it still drives mint and is being driven daily 😊
  13. I'll have that yep, £15, in one of them the little flap is missing for the smaller 250ml red bull type cans

  15. If anyone could get cruise working and share how I'd be eternally grateful, I'd save so much fuel 😂
  16. I've never tried it so I could be completely wrong, would the Polo GTi ECU work or is the wiring too different? Always pondered but never fully looked into it.
  17. Yep 15inch will fit fine, just check the offset and width are ok so they don't rub/poke and also tyre size. I run 7j with 195/45/15, on narrower wheels 195/50/15 can rub such as on the GTI Bathurst wheels. There's a few good websites too for checking the difference in offset, width and rolling radius against your old wheels, just Google offset difference calculator.
  18. The GTI is wider at the rear, so not without modification.
  19. If you want component, they come with crossover, so the feed will come from the former door speaker, then split the signal to high/low, so you will need to run new wires to the tweeters and possibly the door depending where you mount the crossovers, the old tweeter wiring won't be required. Alpine do a good budget range, there's no point spending too much unless you're amping the speakers. Decent coaxial speakers can be good too and you can retain the OEM dash tweeters.

    I'd go for a high mile GTI for £2k. There's some good looked after examples with history for that price and having owned a lower mileage sport and several high mileage GTIs, I'd take the GTI every time. Put it into perspective, say a 2002 GTI has 150k, it's 17 years old, that is only 9,000 miles a year, it's just been used, if the paperwork is there to back up the miles, get a GTI, continue to look after it and it will hold value.
  21. Blue one came with G60 brakes already, so don't need them now. Might be worth nipping to euro and asking to see the pads? I'd send you some pics of mine but they're at my unit at the moment and won't be there for a couple of days
  22. Did you use the G60 pads? There are some slight differences
