you should smoke your rear reflectors like mine, looks tones better on CSG cars.


Except they will no longer be red reflectors and therefore illegal.
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.

Did you smoke them with a film or spray? Had been thinking about doing that as I'm well and truly in the process of blacking the car out.

I just spent a fortnight in Western Australia amidst 40 degree heat and bushfires. ITS COLD HERE  :drool:

Curious legality that one. I truly doubt anyone would ever get stopped for it unless they were doing laps round a shopping centre carpark in reverse at 2am.

Got a few bit in the post today:

VW Racing Intake, SuperPro Anti Lift Kit, and a Subframe Insert (which i dont think ill be needing anymore as im buying Wigits VWR Mount and subframe)

Really looking forward to fitting the SuperPro A.L.K, should finally strat to get some traction down without the whole car shaking. Combined with the VW Racing mount, should increase grip / traction quite a lot.

In regards to the inductions kits ill have to make a choice, either keep and use the VW Racing kit, or keep the REVO / Pipercross one and sell the VW. (this is my 5th intake - such an intake whore  :evil:)

Have any of you guys tried both of these? The Revo one has been spot on so far, so we will have to see what the VWR one is like when fitted, if its ever stop raining.

I will give review on all of the above when fitted and tested.

PS, one of these intake will be for sale very soon as i cant keep both - and also both come with the stage 2 pipe  :cool:



or my current one:

It would be highly unlikely that you would be stopped for it, but if the car got crashed into when parked at night, it could be a wriggle out for the insurers.
