Me too m8.Mines at Grimsby.Where,s yours coming from? I wonder if all waiting at docks are all Wtlp passed? I was told yesterday mine was waiting to be "rubber stamped" by a chinless wonder at the Dvla? I don.t know who to believe. VW UK have said now it's in the UK, it's nothing to do with them.All in the dealers hands?


My car must be parked up next to yours at Grimsby Deano, been told exactly the same.

Definitely. Have one on the S3 and used it on a friends 7.5. If you’re after one I’d get the complete kit with storage bag and wheel protector. Used mine for over 3 years and no marks on the steering wheel.

Golf mk7 / Re: What have you done to your MK 7 today ?

I've done nothing to it ..except shared with it  my displeasure at the idiot who opened their door into its rear wheel arch. We didn't need actually cry together, but it was close :smiley:.

Oh dear, what a pain, much damage? Is the idiot going to pay up?

Interested in hearing how these hold up as winter wheels, maybe try a few pot holes for us if you can  :laugh:

NO!  :grin: :grin:, although as OEM prets are made of cheese, they may be stronger!  :wink: :wink:

The garage / Bonnet won’t lock ?
« Last post by Clintgolfmk5 on Today at 17:32 »
Hi,
I have just replaced the slam panel on a golf mk5 04 plate as it was damaged in a light bump.
I replaced it with a second hand one using the bonnet catcher from the original slam panel.
Everything seems to of gone together ok (obviously not) as the bonnet will not lock closed now.
Any advice would be much appreciated
Thanks.

Golf mk7 / Re: 3 Popular Exhaust Upgrades - Which is best
« Last post by jaceyboy on Today at 17:24 »
A Clubsport S silencer has the benefits of being OEM and under the radar of insurance (not that I’d advocate not telling the insurance company but.. ) plus a main dealer would never notice the different part.


I went to an open day at a well known local VW specialist back in the summer and a guy turned up in an R with a res delete. I’m not sure what other mods he had, a good few I’d imagine, but God Almighty did it sound rough!
The proprietor of said establishment made a few comments about the noise and general consensus was less than positive going by the amount of Gareth Hunt coffee type gestures being subtly made. (Anyone under 40 will have absolutely no idea what I mean there!)

Hopefully all res deletes aren’t the same but if they are then your neighbours won't like you much. 
Definitely something you’d want to hear on someone else’s car before getting the angle grinder out.

Our resonator delete sounds superb, it’s my wife’s car so I can assure you it isn’t loud, it’s gives more burbles and believe me there is no drone at all, well worth while and best thing is it’s reversable

Maybe the guy had a decat as well.
I didn’t speak to him to ask.

It’s definitely a mod I’d have considered myself in the past so was disappointed in the noise that particular car made. I’ll ask some guys who might know him to find out what other mods he has.

He must of as ours isn’t loud, just more poppy
