  1. The non abs cars have a tiny master cylinder. I have a Polo GTi one to fit. 3mm bigger bore.
  2. I've gone the other way back to the standard TDi. If you're going to do it, use the GTi calipers with the 280mm carrier. The standard caliper is too narrow for the available brake pads. You'll either have to remove a couple of mm from each pad or just overheat the discs for a while until they've worn down. I do find it strange that the Polo GTi and Lupo GTi were supplied with the same disc diameter, just thicker. Is yours a non ABS car?
  3. More than happy to post. I sent a 17kg box recently for around £8 through the post office. Cheapest that I trust on Parcel2go, DHL, are £7 and they'll pick it up from work. If I can get them into a box small enough and under 2kg, then the post office will do it for around £3. I don't know how much they weigh without the box.
  4. Got a pair of spare lens units for an Arosa. The bulb carriers had rotted. £5 each plus postage.
  5. The carriers have gone. Here's some pictures of the calipers.
  6. Standard and new for a TDI. I didn't realise that the sport has shorter shocks. They should fit mine but I bought some Corrado VR6 springs to try and up the poundage.
  7. I've got a pair of Lupo GTi calipers and also a pair of the 280mm carriers. I'm after £50 for the calipers and £20 for the carriers plus postage. I'll add some pictures later.
  8. Have you sorted this? I bought a pair of springs for a Sport TDI but they are far too long for the shorter shocks. They are KYB RG1297. https://www.autodoc.co.uk/kyb/829468

    Sporty seats

    I have some from an Audi A3, the original 8P shape. I used a guide like this to do it:
  10. Good. The bottom arm is bent too so that'll be gone first.
  11. Looking at Vagcat, Only the Lupo gets a choice of arms, the Arosa only lists the longer one. The shorter one is shared with the 6N.
  12. I've got to replace a trackrod on the Arosa. Anyone done it in situ? Do I need to slide rack sideways or drop it out completely?
  13. They're in my van, although I also managed of get a pair of carriers from a mk2 Caddy which is all I really needed, so they may be up for sale soon. The end of the exhaust looked OK, but I never got any closer. Overall it looked tidy pre-accident.
  14. The steering wheel is OK apart from the fabric hanging out of the airbag. Prefer the feel of the TT one myself. Didn't look at the sills but it did look like it was tidy pre-smash.
  15. Was in there yesterday and spotted this. It's had a front end smash. The interior has gone. The front and rear suspension is there.
