  1. Cheers! Yeah it still has 2 boxes in it 👍🏼
  2. Recently got a new external mic made by Rode for my Gopro Hero 5, standard Gopro mic is horrendously bad. So I thought i’d give it a quick test. https://youtu.be/yTVloISxqtY
  3. I got my steering wheel back from Royal Steering Wheels today, safe to say it looks perfect, absolutely spot on retrim! Highly recommend them, communication is spot on also!
  4. For normal driving its probably better if anything with the map. As soon as you are on it, it’s noticeable worse🤣
  5. We popped to Mexico for the day 👍🏼 Yeah i have, made a nice different with the headwork and map
  6. Me and a friend in his completely standard GTI engine wise went out today, first time i’ve had the chance to put mine next to a standard one to see if all the money i’ve spent tuning it is really worth it. Turns out it definitely is!

  7. CAE is the more popular choice but after feeling both I much preferred the feel and look of this. Also less than half the price as well👍🏼
  8. Welcome to the newest mod, this is something that has been in the pipeline for a really long time. A coolerworx short shifter! They would only make two as it wasn’t worth their time to do just one so I had to find someone else who wanted one which I did luckily! It has really transformed the driving experience, bringing the shifter closer to the steering wheel is something the car has needed since fitting the Pole Positions. It feels incredible too, shifts are so short and crisp now. Let me know what you think, i’ve still got a bit of tidying up to do around the shifter but i’m happy with it. https://youtu.be/5uPd_8_dYcw https://youtu.be/f-YFgsCtXIg
  9. Its actually really easy, i’ve had all them off before and went back on no issues. If you struggle, put them rubbers in some boiling water first👍🏼
  10. It certainly is, i got it from thettshop.co.uk The website seems to be down at the moment. Been out in the car tonight and it really has made a nice difference, noticeably easier to heel-toe👍🏼
  11. Latest little mod - heel and toe pedal from thettshop. Moves the accelerator pedal a bit closer to the brake pedal which definitely helps as the standard pedal lay out isn’t very nice for driving.
  12. Looks lovely and tidy! The best mod you'll do for handling is get rid of those Toyo T1R's, they really are a terrible tyre!
  13. Yeah really good, even better than i expected. Anyone i took out for a passenger lap it was the first thing they commented on👍🏼
  14. Latest little mod, DIY engine mount. The standard engine mount is oil filled and there is no aftermarket solution out there. I noticed mine felt a bit sloppy at the Ring so I thought i’d look into it, I purchased some Poly Resin, the same stuff the use to make engine mounts. Set about splitting the standard one open and draining all the oil out. I opted for the softer resin as I didn’t want it too stiff. But turns out even with the softest resin it is a LOT stiffer than standard! Instantly noticed a lot more vibrations ok start up, i’ve done over 200 miles the weekend and it’s definitely bedded in a bit and feels much better now. Engine noise inside the cabin has completely changed, sounds better. Gear changes feel even more precise. Overall, really happy with it! Painted the engine mounts and a couple of brackets as well to tidy it up a bit. I’ll leave some pictures below and some more pictures on the new wheels My new favourite picture i’ve taken
