Golf mk6 / Re: Bought new wheels - with the photos

They will look spot on. Have you got new center caps too?

And don't forget, with the valve in the 6 o clock position, the center cap VW badge should be the right way up.  :wink:

And if you ever need to remove the centre caps after they’ve been fitted, don’t lever/prise them out from the front, as you’ll be likely to damage the lacquered surface around the centre bore.

Broken or damaged lacquer = ideal conditions for the onset of white worm corrosion. Take the wheel off the car and push the centre cap out from the reverse side.

I know people recommend the SGS engineering trolley jack but for occasional use is a cheaper one just as good? Looking for one with a case ideally, my ex wife kept my previous one and that one had a nice case with it. Can't remember where I bought that one from.

Has she changed the lock to the garage door?  :whistle:

 :grin:
Haha, she gave it away. Would rather not engage in conversation with her.  :whistle:

I've got a SGS engineering one, 2.5T - had it for many years and works perfectly! Highly recommended!

Definitely do not need to rebalance tyres when rotating front to back!

Cosmetic & bodywork matters / Tyres for BStars
« Last post by richie2480 on Today at 15:10 »
Hi posted this before but no response so will try again. Any BStar RA owners out there? What tyres are you running out there? Tyres I have just removed are 205/45r16's. These look like they are stretched as they sit flush with rims. I am guessing 220r16 or 225r16. Just had the wheels repainted so am looking at protecting the rims.
Thanks Richard

I've swapped my wheels over twice a year when going from winters to summer tyres and back again, and always rotate front to back while doing so. Never needed a wheel balancing yet.

And yes, a trolley jack has been a worthwhile investment  :smiley:

Golf mk7 / Re: 2013 gtd upgrade
« Last post by Exonian on Today at 14:52 »
The Mk7 gtd isn't flat it just delivers the power/torque differently to previous diesel VW's. You just have to adjust your driving style to get the best out of it.

Most GTD owners seem to have adapted to driving flat out everywhere! They’re definitely amongst the fastest cars you see on the motorway every day!

Me, I adapted a little too far, I adapted it straight to a VW dealer and changed it! 
Mind you, it wasn’t the engine that didn’t do it for me as that was fine once the CRD3+ was fitted. :whistle:
