My Car Diary

Currently Driving

  1. I have now accumulated no less than five steering wheels for my Gti and need to reclaim some storage space! So I’m offering the Gti wheel I commissioned from RSW Re-Trimming Ltd last year. Details are as follows: Genuine original equipment Gti wheel Rim thickened and thumb grips added Rim bottom flattened Recovered in smooth black leather with red stitching I fitted this in April 2019 and it was in use on my Gti for just 10 months, with 4,000 miles only covered. Condition is excellent, evidencing the very minimal usage I’m offering this – wheel rim/hub onl
  2. Hi all, need to replace the front and rear wheel bearings on my Lupo. Any links and prices? Cheers, Luke
  3. Wondering if anyone else has any experience with swapping out the original Lupo steering wheel with a golf one. Is it as simple as taking the current one off, and putting a golf one on? Or are there any hacks that need to be in place for this to be feasible? Any information will be helpful!!
  4. Hi there, I need help with a very loud and distressing wheel speed noise. It's there wether in gear or not, only with the wheels turning. Clutching has no effect on it. It sounds, as far as I can tell (and a couple of different passengers) to be coming from the front passenger side wheel, with some vibration noticeable through the foot well. I've had the front up and listened with a Dowell while the wheels are driving, and the gearbox and drivers side knuckle make a kind of sshsshssh noise which I would associate with dry or very slightly worn bearings. While the passenger side knu
  5. Will 15'' ET45 57.1mm 6J alloys fit a 1L lupo/arosa? And what tyre size would be the best? The car isn't lowered. Cheers!
  6. As you can probably tell, no one is bothered about modifying their fox any more what i think is a huge shame. I have had mine for a few months now and am not a fan of the stock steering wheel but i really like the Lupo one. Question is does anyone know if it will fit the Fox? And if you have one for sale how much would you want for it? Thanks, Chris.
  7. I brought a lupo 1.4mpi so I'm new to the vag scene, I'm thinking about buying some 3sdm alloys to fit my mr bean lupo, it's sitting at standard ride height at the moment! What wheels do people recommend Follow me on Instagram to see how the project goes @sqashy2102
  8. will a vw up steering wheel fit into a lupo as I've seen one that i really want and don't want to buy it for it not to fit
  9. hi, i am a new member looking to upgrade from the standard lupo steering wheel,i want to try and put in a up flat bottom steering wheel but a, unsure if it will fit, can anyone help?
  10. I'm looking for some information on the sport model boot well/spare wheel. When i bought my sport it had already passed through the hands of a few modders and thus was somewhat violated, the spare wheel never sat right and there was a visible bulge in the boot carpet, i suspected that the pad underneath was an incorrect part: This is the part from a NON-sport model - part number: 6H0601125A I believe the sport model may have a different part number but i cannot find any information online anywhere. If somebody could please post a series of pictures detailing how the s
  11. hello, so im looking at buying some new rims (Axe ex8's) they have a 30mm offsett so im looking for an 8mm spacer to get the rims back to standard fitment. does anyone know where i can get longer bolts or if i even need to get any? thanks, Jason
  12. hey guys, my front wheel bearing is making a god awful racket. i think its the front passenger bearing. I've heard that changing them can be a bit of a job, is it better to replace the bearing or buy a new hub with the bearing already in? Also, if its easier to buy a hub, any ideas where from? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Adam Picture of the car if anyone is interested http://i.imgur.com/FkF2yq3.jpg
  13. 20mm hubcentric wheel spacers for sale with extended wheel bolts. Text me on 07935056061 if you're interested. Will post for £40 Collection £35
  14. What would be a good size tire for 14x5 wheel? Something not to chunky preferably. Thanks
  15. My BBS RZ's are in need of a refurb and powder coat. After having a browse around the web I noticed prices vary from £30-£60 a wheel. What's a good price for a job like that? and does anyone know of someone who can do it privately?
  16. Was thinking of getting 5-10mm wheel spacers but my dads told me that it's not a good idea and it may lead to some problems. What are the Pros and Cons? Are there any troubles that may come about with wheel spacers? Cheers Chris
  17. I picked up these wheels a few months ago and after stripping off many different layers of paint including white, grey, orange, green and blue i decided to go ahead and get them acid dipped just to be sure! The dishes have a few scratches that mostly i have been able to sand out but there are still a few tiny marks that are hardly noticable. (although i know they are there so they will annoy me!) The centre caps are very damaged so will have to purchase some new ones! Heres some pictures of my progress! Paint stripping a month or so ago.. Today: Its a beautiful day to be getting on with prep
  18. so i bought this new steering wheel to put on the ratty batty but i can't get the old one off, there are three screws at each point on the back of the steering wheel, i went out and bought the right star bit and a new ratchet to get it off but still no such luck, they just seem to be spinning... is there any other way of getting it off? :/
  19. Hi everyone, quick question... Whats the maximum wheel width i can go to without having to roll the arches? Thanks for any replies, TD.
  20. Alright guys, Just looking for some help / advice on fitting a Mountney traditional wheel, Any help will me massively appreciated! Right, I've bought a traditional Mountney GT steering wheel. The wheel wont fit onto a Momo boss as the PCD is a lot bigger and Mountney don't make a boss that fits straight onto a Lupo. I was looking at the traditional boss here (for a Mk2 Golf) and I noticed that in the description that is says that with the removal of the spline adapter, the boss could fit on later models of the golf. Now i've read that some of the later models of golf wheels will fit in the
  21. Hi there! I'm new to the forum and in desperate need of some help. My seat arosa appears to have developed some kind of high pitched whine noise. Originally I thought this was either coming from the alternator or a loose belt, however I've had a local mechanic check it, who gave it a quick once over and said he couldn't find the root of the cause. The car only has 30k on the clock so he thinks it couldn't be anything major? His idea was that it was either coming from the wheel bearings or drive shaft, however he put the car up on the ramp, gave it a good look, span the wheels and couldn't fi
  22. My spare wheel isn't sitting right in the well and is bulging through the boot liner, is anybody able to get a picture of how it is meant to be because i just cant figure out what is wrong?
  23. Does anybody know where I can get bolt on arches like these from?
  24. Does anyone know of any garages with the correct gear to track low cars near durham / sunderland area.. just been turned away before from garages, saying they couldn't get the gear round the wheel :/
  25. so i knew i had an iffy front wheel bearing when i got my car back in august but due to cost i didn't replace it but gradually its got worse and worse then i hit a pot hole and then i could hear it over my music at volume 55 my speakers clip at 58 sub cuts out at 59 so yehh was very very loud and could feel it in pedals and was snatching the steering so i got the wheel bearing and after about an hour trying to get the c clip out then another 40 min pressing the old shell out this is what was making the noise so yehh got my moneys worth out of it just got the other side to do but have got to
