Golf mk7 / Re: Wheel choice

How much does the rep Reifnitz weigh?
.
Hi I looked at the box of the wheel which gives some info about them but not the weight (see below).  Currently I have them in a lock up but will go and weigh one in the next few days. They don’t seem heavy to me from my memory of the weight of the Santiagos and Miltons but it will be interesting.

Golf mk7 / Re: PPF-anybody had it fitted??
« Last post by r600_clubsport on 10 July 2020, 22:39 »
I think it’s worth it-in certain areas,the build quality on my Mk 7 is not as good as my previous Mk 5.
The bodywork seems wafer thin and I reckon it’ll chip like buggery,I also do a lot of motorway miles.
Wow,an attempted car jacking-that’s mad!

yep, was a scary moment

Golf mk8 / Re: Mk 8 Golf

Hard to see much on two black ones but i still don't see the hate...

Red seems one of the best colours so far but that front end, as mcmaddy says, it's no looker, but that's not hate! For me, if I'm going to spend £30k+ on anything, especially a car, it has to make me want to and so far the MK8 is falling short. I'm sure it will drive well but that's not enough.

Not sure any of the competition win any beauty prizes either though.

Unless you are going to build your own, it looks like the latest pedestrian safety directives yield one front end shape....

I'm still in the market for a new car btw  :whistle:

Golf mk6 / Re: Hard starting/ rough idle when warm
« Last post by Q451m on 10 July 2020, 19:12 »
Hi guys, another update, We are finally making some progress! After cleaning the intake manifold the issue with the misfiring has resolved. However.... the car is still idling rough when warm, I have noticed this happens when the oil temp is 100-105c. I am thinking this maybe due to an air leak or a faulty sensor. I have also received an intermittent mechanical malfunction with the DV+ valve following the intake manifold clean so I am hoping it is just a air leak rather than one of the sensors. I have also tested the POV valve using the dipstick method and that seems to be good. I have finally got around to copying the logs of vagcom which are below.

Golf mk7 cars + parts for sale / Re: Genuine BBS SR 19 inch wheels
« Last post by Gnasher on 10 July 2020, 18:51 »
Got these exact wheels myself and they look spot on fitted to the car.

Fitment is great - pretty much flush all round and a wheel that (although subjective) I think suits the car a lot - and you've got BBS quality too.

As a note - make sure you use the supplied bolts (as you're including) with them as not only are they longer, they are a different seat type to the originals (cone instead of the standard ball seat).

Also, audi/skoda wheel bolt covers fit and look great with them and the grey of them match the wheels perfectly.

Thanks. I have enquired at EBC and they have suggested a set of discs and pads for road use.

Yes looks like it. Rotterdam is going to Grimsby and then direct to Tyne. Petersburg is Tyne and then direct to Grimsby.
