Golf mk7 / Re: Wheel Spacer Advice

Yeah, if you Google 'fender screw mod MK7 Golf' it's literally a 10 minute job. All you do is remove the screw thats causing the rubbing and jobs a good 'un.

I'm back stock now though. The ride comfort on Eibachs is fantastic btw, only reason I took them off was because I was paranoid about prematurely wearing the shocks.

Not really sure how the OEM ones can be poor quality when so many don't have any issues at all.

GTI has the IS20, R/S3/Cupra have the IS38. I think I saw a 245PP booked in for Stage 1 in the diary next week, if it arrives I'll post the dyno graphs.

Golf mk7 / Re: Protective Bumper Film Golf 7.5 vs 7

Just an update on this if anyone is looking at this for a Mk7.5.

VW code shows the B suffix for a 7.5 but the Mk 7 version without the suffix is identical. Just bought this from Parts Depot on Ebay for £19.99 incl P&P. Genuine original VW kit using proper 3M vinyl and fits perfectly.

Yes OP I've had the rear discs and pads changed on my GTD, can't remember the mileage but it was about 20k. They were very heavily scored. This was by an independent who I trust and not my local dealer. My front discs and pads have just been changed with almost 60k and my after market rears are still in good condition. IMHO the OEM rear discs were poor quality as the aftermarket ones have lasted a lot longer. If I remember correctly there was a thread on here a while ago about rear discs not lasting.

Golf mk6 / Re: Mk6 gti aftermarket head units?
« Last post by Mr_Orange on 20 March 2019, 21:04 »
After some reading up, decided to go with an OEM unit. Now that appears to bring its own problems along with it....
Apologies if there's an existing link for this, I couldn't find anything. Please point me in the right direction. However :
RNS315 or 510? What's worth paying so much more for a 510?
The physical change looks straight forward with an additional "blue" aerial. What security coding, or pairing up is required?
Which version/part # of the head unit is preferable, they seem to be continually updated.
Can a unit from a different or later model fit in the Golf, say something from a newer Passat or Skoda?
Thanks!

Changed out the spark plugs on my GTi. Jesus the coil packs were absolutely a ballache to remove. The rubber boots were absolutely welded onto the ceramic part of the plugs. I found a useful trick online using cable ties which helped coupled with brute force. For anyone wondering I used Bosch Double Platinum plugs.
I also placed the tiniest amount of anti seize on the inside of the rubber boot to hopefully ease my pain when doing the job next time.
Also fitted 4 new Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5’s. Just a 100km in so far but they feel really good so far.
