Part 1 of my CS to CSS conversion complete. Set of Michelin Sport Cup 2 tyres (18”) added to my Clubsport. Only driven 5 miles in the dry but initial subjective feel is positive with improved steering feel. Was toying with a Pretoria upgrade but standard wheels still look great and 2 KGs lighter per corner.

You should start a build thread with photos (assuming you haven’t elsewhere)
This will be a fascinating project.

Well not actually the GTI, but had the wife ring me in tears last night when she got back to her car after work. Her pride and joy (our mint Polo Blue GT in Blue Silk metallic) has been keyed. She said she felt sick  :sick: :sick:  She's absolutely heart broken.

Not just a little bit, on the off side from just behind the headlight right down the wing, through the door and all the way through the rear quarter panel to the rear light - and really deep, down to the metal in places  >:( >:( >:(

It's either bored kids, or as yesterday she couldn't' park in her usual spot, (she parked just round the corner in another street) someone took exception to her parking in "their" spot - even though it's a standard street with no assigned parking for any of the residents. Makes my blood boil and if I ever got hold of the fekker who did this, I'd do them serious damage by keying their face !!!

Just last month bought the car outright from VW finance as well. What is it that drives these brainless morons - and why are they still allowed to breath air !

Sickening.
I’ve had three cars keyed over the years and can relate to the feelings of wanting great harm to befall the perpetrators.
My sympathies sootchucker.

Disgusted. Know exactly how you feel. There’s no excuse for it. My friend had her brand new T-Rocc keyed on both sides down all the way from the headlights to the tail lights. Even the plastic wheel arch trims had to be replaced. Hope you get it sorted soon.

Drove mine oop north on holiday, about 250 miles. Considering I was off nights this morning and had very little sleep it was comfortable and relaxing. Lots of heavy traffic on the M25 (30 mins to cover 6 miles) and it was busy on the M42, a long 50 section on the M6 with a steady 80+ where possible yet 42mpg. The last few miles was on a small A road where the car was great fun :smiley: Amazing cars these MK7s! I was so pleased to have arrived in time to get a few pints in the local pub :smiley: We are in West Yorkshire, lovely.

Awful to hear the Polo getting keyed all because you 'parked in someone's spot' . We live in a mid terrace and we literally ripped up the front garden within 24 hours of getting the keys to make way for a drive.

Haven't done much to mine recently, I've only done 300 miles this month, it hasn't even been washed. I do fancy a TCR spoiler and a remap though  :cool:

Btw, them socks are ace!

Updated my badge, I wanted it to stand out a bit more as red badges on a Tornado Red car seem to disappear.
I just have to decide what to do with the side and front badges now! :grin:

Now I really like that! When I had my red PP I thought the same thing.

The black badges suit the colour scheme of the red CS perfectly #303  :cool:
