  1. It really is straight forward mate. Thanks man👌🏼
  2. Yeah very straight forward fit. Just make sure you get the adaptor to fit on to the existing exhaust
  3. Gave the car a deep interior clean recently, seats out, everything wet vac’d. Came up like brand new, so satisfying seeing it in such good condition! Also treated myself to a new pressure washer, the Kranzle K10/122TS. Something I’ve wanted for a long time! And some recent pictures of mine and the missus car from a little shoot.
  4. Give chipwizards a ring, one of the few people who can map these cars. He done mine, it's an incredible difference!
  5. Hope everyone had a good Xmas and got some car goodies! I certainly did, my old Garage Midnight stud kit was starting to look very tired. So rather than replace, upgrade right? I went for the PSDesigns Titanium stud kit. Fitted them today and my god the quality is just something else, first time experiencing titanium and I can believe how light they are. I weighed both sets and the titanium set came in at 800 grams and the steel set came in at 1500 grams. I know it’s only a small saving but impressive on such a small piece of metal.
  6. Had the wheels refurbed at Aerocoat in a fresh Silver, very happy with how they look now. Stuck a set of Michelin PS3's on for winter. Went for a Sunday hoon this morning with the missus 9N3 Polo GTI, would of been rude not to get a few pictures!
  7. Latest little mod, @baf_motorsport K Brace installed, very well made and super easy to fit! Not sure if rigidity will be improved, it is bolted to the top struts and the floor but at least I can put things in the ‘boot’ and not have things flying forward. Also, took my new favourite picture early Sunday morning! (Doing the milk run of course)
  8. Couple of changes made to the car, I’ve been after a set of 15” ATS DTC’s for a long time now. Since they don’t make them anymore in the correct size they are very hard to come by. A set come up for sale in one of the FB pages I’m in, they were in Belgium but I had to have them, he agreed to post them. Fast forward a few days later and they are on the car, they will be getting a refurb in a month or so but I thought I’d wear out the AD08R’s they came on first. I’ve also fitted a new exhaust from Kam Racing that I’ve been waiting for a while now. It sounds great, will leave some pictures
  9. Yeah it’s getting there, it will never be perfect to me but it’s close. Still a few things I’d like to do, Alcantara door cards to get rid of the horrible material on the standard ones. Appreciate that👍🏼 It’s been valued with the my insurance for £7500.
  10. I've been testing a new airbox from a company called Sprogley Motorsport the last few months. It replaced my BMC airbox which had nothing wrong with it but Sprogley got in touch and said he's sure he can make a better design than the BMC. So he sent me one out before my first Nurburgring trip this year, the car definitely had more induction noise so it was giving that placebo affect that it must be making more power lol. Yesterday I went to where Sprogley is based and to the local dyno to test it out. We tried to make the test as fair as possible, we let the car idle for 5 mintues before
  11. The latest addition, a new custom intake made by a friend of mine at Motion Fabrication. Very pleased with the work and how it turned out, looks very neat in the engine bay. It runs directly to where the inner sidelights used to be, so it should get maximum airflow. I also went to Santa Pod this weekend to GTI Festival. Haven't been to Pod for quite a while so I thought why not see what the GTI can do now. I took the car up the 1/4 mile strip when I first got the car completely standard, my best time then was a 15.9. I then went back a few years ago when the car had the full manifold exha
  12. Got the subframe, wishbones and radiator on yesterday. The old subframe definitely needed changing out after finding a whole had been ripped in it from my 'near miss' at the Nurburgring. The radiator looked worse for wear aswell although it was still functioning properly. Something very satisfying about putting powder coated parts and new bolts on the car
  13. Interesting that the Epytec flywheel decided to pack up, i've had mine on for about 3 years now and it's been great. Have you thought about filling the standard oil filled mount with poly-resin? I done that to mine and it made a world of difference to engine stiffness!
  14. No big update this time, just a few nice pictures I've recently taken. Although, this Saturday I will be fitting the new freshly powder coated subframe and wishbones with all new bolts and bushes. Also a Cambelt and waterpump change with the new Aluminium radiator as well
  15. So last weekend me and the missus made the trip up to Anglesey for a track day on the Sunday. We travelled up on Saturday and stayed the night, it's a 5-6 hour journey from Ipswich so I didn't fancy doing it all in one day :laugh: Once again the car perfomed faultlessly, the best it's ever felt in fact with the new KW V2 coilovers. They really have transformed the car, night and day better than the BC's. The car feels so much more composed and the spring rates seem much better. A lot less body roll also. I managed to do around 60 laps in total, some on the international circuit and
