Those wheels look fantastic. Love the red trim to the centre caps; I'm very tempted myself...

Cleaned and treated the door seals to some Krytox, hopefully it'll help with some b-pillar area rattles. A quick test drive afterwards was positive but I'll give it a week or so to be sure. The sunroof could do with some tlc too.

Watts; is the Krytox something you've bought recently? I did look online a couple of weeks ago for some but it was eye wateringly expensive!

No, I've had it a long time but it wasn't cheap even then. It's supplied by car manufacturers other than VW and can also be bought from the original manufacturer but with a different name. I can't remember what that was though but if it comes to me I'll post it. It was discussed on here a few years ago.

Thanks for the eBay link, Watts. What size is typically needed to do all doors on a 5-door?

In the post I linked above it was said that 30ml should do for 3 uses. Not sure what that equates to in grammes as in the ebay ad. Perhaps 10g would do? The bottle I have is tiny and has been used a few times but is still going. Not sure what quantity/weight it was, I'll have a look later.

Thanks, I’ve taken a gamble on a 20g bottle in the hope it’ll cover two cars… time will tell.

Mine is 10g. It's covered my current car (although sunroof yet to be done) and it did my previous car (3 door) and I lent it to someone to do their car too. There's a little left too say I'd say you should be fine!

Took my first drive after replacing an ignition coil to resolve my "hopping" issue I posted about a few months back (doesn't time fly?)

OBDEleven helped to debug as a misfire, as did googling on a whim "mk7 gti drives like it has hiccups" :laugh: Turns out "hiccups" is a common term
