Are the light tints done with film? Pro job or DIY? I've been thinking of them for a while and think it looks really tidy on yours.

DIY wet applied film, was sceptical but they fit great and I'm happy with the look..

Finally, long overdue wash. Need to polish and blitz exhausts, but run out of energy today!

Just got back from a weeks holiday in Wales - Kent to Castlemartin in Pembrokeshire.

50.4 mpg out, 51.3 mpg on the way back... nice loads of quite roads and switchbacks to give it some stick while there.

Now covered in grime from sitting and watching the crashing waves.. just one day to get it sorted before back to work on Monday  :sad:

Don't know how you get this mpg. Never get better than about 42 even when driving like Miss Daisy! Wales is a nice holiday location. Used to spend a lot of time there in unusual spots in forests on rallies.
Mk6 GTI Carbon Grey, 2010 Bluetooth and voice fitted, a few VCDS mods still a comfortable family car. Red Scirocco 2011 twin charger stage 1 - enjoyable drive now gone.  White 2016 Polo GTI (roller skate on steroids) replaced with an Indium Grey 2019 7.5 GTI PP.

Love those BBS wheels Meister  :cool: almost as much as your cordylines.

How on Earth do you get 50+ mpg out of a GTI, Rudedog? That takes some doing! :afro:

Love the alloys too :cool:, but then I’m a sucker for a nice set of alloys - provided they’re not diamond cut :whistle:.

Car looks great @Meister. I need to give mine ‘the works’ this week, weather permitting.

Looks great
 
Grab a set of £9 polishing cones off ebay for the drill and a bit of autosol, makes light work of it.

(Also a bit of scrunched up tin foil will remove the worst of it  :wink:)
