My OEM service kit comprising of oil, plugs, air, oil & pollen filter - even new sump plug came today. Now just got to wait for decent weather to fit it!

My Pretorias arrived from Volkswagen today, along with 3 out of 4 clubsport centre caps (there was a back order) it'll be here in a few days  :smiley:

I like those centre caps, think they would look good on my satin black Reifnitz.

They're the Clubsport ones (Part No. 5G0-601-171-BLYC), I got them thrown in with my alloys which made the price a lot nicer. Seeing how centre caps are always not a nice price.

In other news I got my Pretorias put on and really like them  :smiley:

Thanks, I'm going with a dark theme again with this car but trying to not make it exactly the same as my old GTD, which is a lot harder than it seems :grin: :grin:

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.

I hear removing the resonator is good for drowning out rattles  :wink:

Sunroof and windows open works a treat too! Not so good on wet days mind....

Oil change! It was a bit of a faff using the extractor but changing the filter was just SO simple; such a great design :cool:
