Golf mk7 / Re: Paint protection film
« Last post by mkviken on Today at 15:49 »
Ive Done about 5 cars with various protective film now. Used the 3M stuff a few times and armourfend and 2 types of xpel.

My golf has Xpel on and it’s by far the best I’ve used but took a little learning how to apply it as it is totally different to the 3M stuff to apply.

I did it myself over the course of a few days and pleased with the results. It was a pre cut kit, as was a few of the other kits I did and a couple i just bought a roll and did it.

Trick with the xpel is lots of EPA on the sticker and not too much slip solution. 3M was the other way around as it was more tacky but thicker and more visible.

Xpel is the best. It breaths so any little bubbles disappear after a few days and it self heals and is way thinner than 3m.

I have some photos of it on the clubsport thread if you want to see it.

It’s well worth doing if you can be arsed.

Loving the car, but would prefer the 18" Belvedere wheels - anyone (Little Lofty?!) want to swap, or know where to get some at a good price?

You can buy a set from here if you want some...

TDI / Re: 23W6 Field Measure/Recall

Many other manufacturers have also been misleading owners with false emissions data so it isn't just VW.

Really? Which manufacturers have been misleading owners with false emissions data and how have they been doing it? Have any of these manufacturers had any action taken against them for this like Volkswagen have had?

You have contradicted yourself in this thread. You previously said that Volkswagen had not lied to me, yet you have indicated here that Volkswagen have lied to me (and other owners) by way of providing false emissions data. I am now unsure if you think Volkswagen have lied to me or that Volkswagen have not lied to me, as obviously it can only be one of the two scenarios and not both.

The definition of the word 'lie' as per the dictionary for reference -
1. A false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood.
2. Something intended or serving to convey a false impression; imposture:
3. An inaccurate or false statement; a falsehood.

You can't seriously think that an American V8 is cleaner than a VW diesel can you??

I can't answer this question unless you are more specific in relation to the engines you are referring to. I would need to know which particular American manufactured V8 engine(s) and which particular Volkswagen manufactured diesel engine(s) you are asking me to compare the cleanliness (emissions output) of. To date, there have been multiple American made V8 engines produced (both petrol and diesel) over a sizeable time period and produced to meet different emissions standards over that time period. Volkswagen have manufactured a wide range of diesel engines, also over a sizeable time period and manufactured to meet different emissions standards over that time period. Should you wish to elaborate sufficiently, I should be able to answer your question.

I prefer the Prets and the Brescia to my wheels, but do like the fact that mine are unique to the CS.

I know exactly what you mean, I got the Brescia's but love the uniqueness of the CS wheels. All nice choices to make ey  :grin:

Ceramic coat and PPF are two separate things.
I had both, they are for different purposes.
