Golf mk7 / Re: 19" looks great but a bit fragile
« Last post by p3asa on Today at 00:38 »
Sorry guys I thought I had replied on here.
Thanks for all the advice and kind words.

I decided in the end to just get a set of the matt carbon Fox Racing alloys as above with winter tyres on them. I'll just hopefully put these on for only a few weeks until I sell a kidney and get another Pretoria alloy  :grin:

The 4 replacement alloys, tyres and delivery cost the same as one Pretoria alloy  :rolleyes: My daughter says I should just sell the other 3  :grin:

On the bright side, Lepsons returned my 1 good Pretoria today 10 days after me sending them it. They said they weren't happy with the finish and stripped it down and repainted it 3 times before they felt they could sent it back to me. The finish is superb. Its like its come straight out the factory.

The light was fading and my other alloys are dirty so I'm not sure about the colour match. Maybe the new one is a slight shade darker but I'm not quite sure.

I would tell Direct Line that if they won't allow it then you will look elsewhere.

Whatever you do, lying to or deliberately misleading your insurance company isn't a great idea.

The facelift cars have the tail pipes further out on the GTI and R and also they are larger on the GTI than the 7

No problem :smiley: Those Bosch wipers are excellent and last well. My second service was as you've described and came to £180 so £260 odd sounds a bit rich unless there is less to do on a petrol. Did it not include an mot or aircon service?

Cool. I think I deserve to have a bit of fun! I like it firm anyway as long as its not crashy

Considering this however Direct Line say no 🙄 apparently only up to 20% power change is allowed by underwriters  :cry:

Anyone got this and if so with whom are u insured ? Is it worthwhile saying to Direct Line its only a 18% increase  :grin:
