    2015 520d touring - about to go on sale | 2001 Arosa 1.4 TDI
  1. Hi guys, Picked up some RZ 305's for my little arosa and have just had them fitted with new tyres and put on the car. I'm having difficulty in getting the center caps to fit on - they dont even clip into place i know i need to spin them to lock in, but im not even at that stage yet! they dont sit flush they way they're supposed to - any ideas? See that they can fit the lupos and im assuming the arosas have same hub size so i guess thats that out the window. Cheers
  2. Hi guys, After a set of LUPO GTI seats or MK4 Golf recaros. Anyone got anything up for grabs? just after front seats. Cheers
  3. ideal! excited to get rid of the horrid stock seats, my back will thank me lol.
  4. Hi guys, Seen a load of posts on here about mk4 golf seats being a straight swap - how true is this? seen a pair of leather recaro front seats from a 3dr that would almost match my interior colour. Wanting to make sure they'll fit before handing over my pennies for them. pic attached. *edit* Forgot to mention im trying to fit to a 2001 mk2 Arosa TDI Cheers
  5. those seats look brilliant, proper bolsters on them - still would swap the headrests out though - been searching everywhere but cant find a set for sale! I'm a fan of the black interiors, mine's got the grey/cream one with centre console etc all kind of off white - not a big fan. Trip to a breakers yard maybe in order lol. been looking at some springs/coilovers and front/rear anti roll bars as well would be ideal if someone on here was wanting rid of them.
  6. Cheers for the info will be looking into springs and a map after i get the uniroyals i've ordered fitted. Think im going to just keep the 14's as i can see this "budget" run around turning into a costly project if i dont stay sensible. Did the springs sort out the body roll for you, or just aesthetics? Have looked at shocks too but again trying not to get carried away lol Will keep an eye out for the sport seats, but in the meantime i might go hunting for old polo headrests to sort them out - the stock ones with the hole are really quite hard to get on with. Cheers.
  7. Hi mate, its an S model with central locking - just got the fob working today. When I unlock the car i can hear a light clicking noise in the boot. I've taken the "boot card" - if thats what you call it lol - off and it looks to be alright. Any ideas as to what it could be? Not sure if its the motor or the solenoid that's the issue - the metal bar is in place. Where did you get yours mapped? I've had a look at the revo map, 240 quid including vat doesnt seem so bad at all - or are there better alternatives? What springs did you use? Not wanting mega lows just wanting it to handle a litt
  8. Hi guys Thought it would be worth while posting on here. I’ve just bought myself a 2001 Arosa 1.4 tdi! The little thing only has 35k miles on the clock and runs like a dream, 350 miles done on the first day - and on one tank - with a quarter left! There’s only a couple little bits that are needing done, passenger door looks as though it’s been opened into a wall and has cracked paint/dent right where it meets rear quarter. Front passenger wing suffering from the usual VAG rust. Few little marks on the bumpers. Boot solenoid needs investigating, never locks! Mechanically though the li
