Golf mk7 / Re: Clubsport wheels finally sourced and fitted!
« Last post by GE90 on Today at 20:06 »
There's been 2 sets on the facebook Golf R owners page.  1st were virtually brand new and were £650 including the tyres and they took a while to sell, he ebayed them in the end.  The 2nd set are still on there for £1,000 including tyres (done more mileage than the 1st set).

I have never seen a set for £650, or under £1000 to be honest! I was checking eBay (inc German version), many forums, Facebook R page etc.

If you can point me in the right direction of any going under £1000 for a set, I'll buy them up myself as a spare set!

I bought some 5x112 18x8" ET35 Audi reps for a ridiculously low price which came with 235/40/18 tyres of which 2 are still at 5mm or so. The pcd of the rims being 5x112 so I need to get some adapters and spigots. I have searched long and hard on Google to see a pic of a car with my spec wheels with et15 all-round but because of the age the pics are no longer available to view. I am currently on original suspension but it needs changing anyway so I will be running coilovers soon. I have a few questions. I would like the wheels to look flush with no/very little stretch if possible.
1. If I used 20mm adapters would the rear wheels look inline with the front? Or should the adapter be larger for the rear? Would the front hit the fender and the fender need rolling?
2. Would the 235 tyres be OK on the rear or should I be looking at 215/225 for all 4 tyres?(trying to save a few quid at the moment)

Advice would be more help than the pics but would be great to see a car with et15 if possible.

Golf mk4 / Re: Timing belt kit worth buying?
« Last post by Ragingredbull on Today at 18:26 »
Thanks all for the messages. Went with stealers kit in the end with the aux belt, and also bought a new set of breather pipes and a new second hand turbo to intercooler pipe and had those fitted over the weekend. Got the car back today, was told the engine sounds excellent by mechanic mate. Whilst talking to him noticed that the suspension  was an inch or so above the mounts in the front both sides. I suppose it is a good excuse for some coilovers as I just bought some 18" Audi reps for the car. Appreciate the help from everyone.

Yep, I said that in May when I first drove mine. The RH Booth correctly predicted give it 3 months. She was right on this occasion :grin: Seriously you will do the same, but enjoy for now. BTW I haven't mentioned it to my insurance co. I'll argue the toss in court if ever necessary.

Traded in a MK7 GT tdi 150 for a 16 Mk7 R, What an animal...  :grin:


There seems to be a distinct lack of a photo which is against the law.

But a hearty congratulations anyway!  :grin:


What's the rest of the spec?
When will you be getting a pedal box fitted?  :laugh:

Good to see you got one with a proper gearbox too  :whistle:

Pictures will have to wait the thing is filthy already no thanks to brian  :angry:
Pretty much standard manual 5dr  apart from the lapiz and a dealer fitted kenwood/garmin satnav which i found out about on collection.
No pedal box for me insurance wont allow i believe and it already cost a bomb for the insurance.

It had to be manual i did try DSG and i was impressed i was also impressed by the 8speed ZF on the BMW M140i but nothing beats a good manual  :grin:

Congratulations on the new car. Did your insurance company know exactly what a pedel box is? The reason I ask is some of them think it is like a tuning box.
