Missed it  :sad:

Still in repairers and won't be back till next week.   Decided to go through insurance due to wheel/tyre damage.  Got confirmation from VW insurance that claim approved, the assessor commented on what a nice car it was after seeing the photos.  Can't wait to get it back, have had enough of the cr@ppy corsa now!

Took my car to get the suspension knocking noise looked at.

Turns out the idiots that lowered my car made a right balls up of the front end :cry: :cry:

Apparently one side was lower than the other and it might need a new top mount :cry: :cry:

noticed that it needs new discs and pads and new tyres so been out looking for bigger brakes kits

What are people using? Not sure if I should just buy some R32/S3 bigger brakes

Fitted the 2nd pipercross induction kit I've been sent. 1st was for a TT-rs, they sent the correct one this time but it didn't have the joiner from the hard pipe to the maf.

Good job I had a bit of 3 inch silicone boost pipe lying around to temp connect.

On the phone to the supplier again :)

Eml came on, just checked and the make shift join has come off the maf. It's too hot to put on tonight.

Although you could hear it sucking the air through, not as loud as I thought it'd be though
