Done few bits and bobs.  Couple of minor cosmetic mods - changed interior lights to LEDs, added new Richbrook GTI tax disc holder, booked it in for 1st service in Sept and renewed insurance (£233)  :cool:

I started it up as it's been sat in the garage for near 3 weeks to see if I could hear any dreaded cam tensioner chain rattle.
I could not but boy do those two fuel injectors in the center of the engine make a knocking noise.

Got all the tar spots off the boot lid tonight, tried Autoglym "Intensive" Tar Remover but it wouldn't touch it? So I ended up claying the thing (not what I had planned for Monday night!) Anyway got the tar off with the clay, polished and sealed it.  Smooth as a baby's arse now  :cool:
