  1. Does look smart that! looks well looked after, no doubt it will get more of the same treatment from you!

    My new car

    I'm sure i've seen on here somewhere that Bosch spark plugs don't play nice with the GTI and to use NGK ones. I'm not sure if that's still the case though I can't see why it would have changed!

    I used one of these boys to get that collar off https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-12pcs-Bearing-Splitter-Gear-Puller-Fly-Wheel-Separator-Set-With-Box-Tool-Kit/263550520539?hash=item3d5cd5ccdb:g:2~MAAOSwKtBd0lfE Made light work of it!
  4. Pretty common this. The loom for the boot attaches on the passenger side behind the plastic trim that surrounds the rear seats latch, just above the wheel arch. The connector for the rear wiper likes to disconnect there and spray the water all over the place. Best place to start looking!
  5. Looks good! I feel like the rear needs to come down slightly though!
  6. You can get them on ebay for about £30, they come in primer. Pretty expensive but its an option and they're easy enough to paint
  7. Looks really smart that, good height I reckon!
  8. To be fair it wasn't pristine anyway, or I wouldn't have done it
  9. I'll drop you a message about it Few more pics from the last few weekends adventuring... Freshened up the engine cover as it was looking a bit tatty. Also modified it so it would fit over the induction piping, much prefer the engine bay with the engine cover on. Still need to repaint the power steering reservoir bracket 🙄
  10. I do like those Team Dynamics on a Lupo, looks smart
  11. yeah, not crazy low or anything though.
  12. i run 16x7.5 et35 on mine with zero issues or scrubbing. You will be fine
  13. Interesting, might have a go at that then. run it for how long with the tabs in? Just having a quick google, I'm assuming its the hydrochloric acid type stuff for cleaning the tank? how much you after for the loom and switches? I can't agree on the tailgate though, sorry Rich! 😊
  14. Small update, nothing of note to add really, working on tidying up a few engine bay bits at the moment, bit of rust on the power steering tank bracket the usual suspects! Also on the lookout for a coolant reservoir as mine is fairly grim on the inside. Anyone know what they cost from VW or have a clean one they don't want? Also bought another bootlid with a polo 6R handle on which is situated a bit lower down than the one I currently have on. Needs a bit of work before it gets put on though. Few pics anyway My personal driver there on the last pic, She's ok. Can be a bit ruff with the steering...
  15. Can't have helped the aerodynamics driving about with a kid holding your spoiler on!
  16. yeah, it's smart that! Nice to see one where the sills aren't all chewed to bits!
  17. There's a view counter right down near the bottom, it says 4284 currently!
  18. no, these are cambridge lights, they have a grey strip across where the indicator is.
  19. it's because the GTI has a slightly wider track up front, so the front struts need to be slightly different to accommodate this
  20. yeah, i drilled mine out! The powerflex one, you'll think you won't be able to get it in, but like a lot of things in life, if you use enough force and some gentle lubrication you'll get it there.

    I'm a fan of that, looks lovely!
  22. I use Bosch A928S wipers, they're 21 and 19 inch which I believe is the same as the GTI ones. I'm sure i originally found the info for them on here somewhere
  23. Yeah, I had a feeling I was looking at something in the barrel being knackered just by how it felt. I think I'll just take it in to a VW specialist in the morning, definitely beyond my capabilities and it's not really something I can leave. Had to park it round the back of the house with the fuel pump fuse out for tonight. Cheers man!
