Looks great Jeff. Love the colour of the wheels, but then I’m biased as I’ve got s thing about graphite / anthracite coloured alloys :cool:

And today, I've bought a Side Kick blaster, mainly for those annoying areas around the tailgate and door handle & fuel filler cap.

Saw one on ebay that a guy was selling, it said hardly used, got it for £65,
 

The Side Kick Blaster’s a great little piece of kit. I have one and with a well protected car, with a little practice and using the long nozzle I’ve found it’s possible to pretty much dry my whole car - after the final stage in the washing process (rinse with an open ended hose to ‘sheet’ the water off the car), you can chase any remaining water beads away with the long thin nozzle fitted to the Side Kick. As well as the water traps you’ve mentioned, it’s also great for getting the trapped water out of the door mirror housings, around the wheel bolts / wheel bolt covers and from under the rubber strips along the doors, just below the windows.

I do find it is quite noisy and painful on the ears when you direct the Side Kick at some of the water traps - especially around the door mirror housings and wheel bolt recesses, so you might want to consider getting a few sets of foam ear plugs. I find they really help.

Golf mk3 / Bolts to secure AGG engine to Engine Stand
« Last post by bmouthboyo on 20 June 2018, 22:16 »
Hi guys,

I did search about but seem to be confusing myself about what bolts I need to mount my AGG engine to an engine stand I purchased.

Key points:
  • Current transmission bolts unavailable
  • 4 x Engine securing tubes on the stand are 70mm

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks  :smiley:

General discussion / Re: Notifications, lack of

Just checked my junk mail, nothing.

The last time I received a notification was 04/09/2017, so it definitely worked.

Are others getting notifications

Bit hard to tell if it needs claying or not, dont think it does tbh, the paint feels really smooth.

Thanks for the nice comments, I think that wheel colour (Graphite) goes well with TR, I think it would go nice with White too.


And today, I've bought a Side Kick blaster, mainly for those annoying areas around the tailgate and door handle & fuel filler cap.

Saw one on ebay that a guy was selling, it said hardly used, got it for £65,

And I've also bought a Snow Foam Lance, one that fits my Challenge Xtreme pressure washer.

I did already have one for another pressure washer that I have, a karcher K2, but that recently died.

It's funny, the Challenge Xtreme was cheap, had if for years, works much better than the Karcher, far more powerful, and it just keeps working :)

I love the active info display too..

And it's worth remembering that for £599 you can have a Revo remap which gives 330ps ! And I bet it will be a much better map than vw's with all their messing around with emmisions etc..

For those that have had a Revo map, do you need to go to a dealer or can you install it yourself?

It’s a REVO dealer visit I’m afraid.

I know the engine is a little different to the R but when I collected mine and gave it a gentle run in for the first 300/400 miles you could really feel that the car wanted to go.

The way it starts to rev out once the boost comes on is crazy. I guess the larger turbo must help. The R engine really is a joy even from low revs.

I wonder how the PP engine feels? Does it have a bigger turbo to the non PP?
The PP has the smaller more responsive at low revs turbo which doesn’t have the same kick as an R at over 4000rpm.
It has a flatter and smoother power delivery than an R but feels more torquey.
