    Old Skool modding....

    Hi Yellow, How did you take out the blower vents on the dash to enable you to lacquer them? Thanks

    5 Things you look for in buying a car

    But strangely an engine isnt in the top 5. Maybe a go cart would be a more appropriate purchase ?

    Oil issues

    I use Millers Nanodrive in mine. It was recommended as my 6R is modified. It also lasts much longer than Castrol Edge too. Its slightly thicker. Mine just slurps a quart of the Edge every 3 weeks.

    They look a really good job. I havent done around the vents yet and havent done the plate at the back where the ESP is. But now ive seen yours. I may have a bash. 👍

    5 Things you look for in buying a car

    1) Price 2) Brand 3) Condition 4) Looks 5) Performance and potential Brand quality is a huge thing to me. I havent seriously looked at any other brand than VW and particularly the Golf. Ive had a gander at an S3 every now and then but i still prefer the Golf. RS3 would be lovely but my budget would only stretch to the early model which is looking dated in my opinion. Im having the the same issues with the 6R to 7R. I prefer the 6R for looks. In my opinion its a much better looking car and rarer. 7R has the fresher look and the newer engine.

    What was your first car?

    C reg (2 years older than me) Vauxhall Nova painted in Ford Mallard green. Had 3 spoke alloys, GTE interior and body kit with a 1.6 carb Cavalier engine in it. I spent 1200 on a set of speedline alessios. Nice cheap little motor. From the there its always been Golf's. Y Reg 1.8t GTI, 52 reg 25th Anni (1602), Mk5 Golf GTI and now a 6R.
  9. Thought id have a bash at painting my gear knob, stereo and a/c surrounds last night. The gear knob surround needed replacing because the grey material on top had come off. As per the replacement price was insane as you have to buy the full unit. I dont think its a bad job for a tenners worth of aerosol piant and some flatting pads and paper. It has a few specs of dust in but its much better than the flaky material previously. Updates the 6R dash a little too.

    MOT fail... Help needed

    I have on previous models. But ive since bought a house and the drive is on a slope. Any bigger of a drop and it wont get on it. It scrapes the bloody bumper now 😣 And just making a much bigger and more expensive job when the handling is more than capable on its current set up.

    MOT fail... Help needed

    Ooooo thats something id never considered. When ever ive modifide cars previously ive replaced all 4 to get a lowered look so never experienced a failure. The R is the only car where ive made no modifications in that area. Thanks.... For the bad news! More expense haha
  14. Afternoon everybody, The 6R has just been in for an MOT and unfortunately has suffered a broken rear coil spring. Does anybody happen to know the brand and the part number. Europarts are advertising 3 different versions Anscler, Sachs and KYB. Ive heard of Sachs but not the other. My car is a 2010 plate with Acc upgrade if that makes any difference. Thanks
