  1. I am sure the non branded will fit give it a go they are cheep anyway
  2. @Booth11 oh no- that's not good! They did send me the 10mm ones and they fitted fine. Might be a one off mistake like you said. The listing does state "10mm ball pin".
  3. It does illuminate but no pulse on 8R
  4. Yes i thought it was for the 8 GTI. Just wanted to be sure
  5. Hi All, Does anyone know how to turn on the pulses on the engine start button for a mark 8 R? I have noticed that mine does not have the heartbeat light effect on. Thanks in advance.
  6. Thanks @Booth11 The Gyeon wax was really easy to apply but as with most waxes it takes a bit of elbow grease to buff off. Let's see how it lasts... The difference with the pedal box is like day and night just like it was on the mark 7...
  7. Finally got around to finishing my cars full detail. Will be putting on my Estorils tomorrow- got my wheels from my mark 7 R on for the time being. Didn't opt for a ceramic coating this time around. Instead will be topping it up with a wax more frequently. Used the following products Car: Valet Pro PH Neutral Snow foam EZ Car Care GTR- Glue & Tar remover GTECHNIQ W6 Iron and General Fallout Remover Meguiars Gold Class Shampoo (2 bucket wash) Menzerna Super Finish High Gloss 3500 Polish using Das 6 Pro DA Meguiars Gold Class Shampoo (2 b
  8. @Booth11 I am just in the middle of taking my wheels off my car so I can ceramic coat them. Will appreciate it if you could post it up in there. Thank you!
  9. You will need: 1 x mark 7 or 7.5 strut part no: 5G0823359 1 x GAS STRUT END FITTINGS 10MM BALL PIN BLACK https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PAIR-GAS-STRUT-END-FITTINGS-10MM-BALL-PIN-BLACK-MULTI-FIT-GSF49-/201856379314?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286 1 x 10mm Nut (I already had this at home) 2 x washers (as the hole on the bonnet is bigger- again I already had these) I bought the gas strut end fittings from eBay- they come as a pair but you only need one that goes on to the bonnet. Process: 1. Insert the ball pin with the washers on
  10. Yes i have fitted it today .They are the same
  11. @JaseW @Booth11 I bought mine on ebay. Have put the part number on this thread. Thanks
  12. Went to collect my car from JCB Medway this morning. As soon as I arrived I noticed a lady washing cars with one really dirty bucket, a microfibre cloth and hardly any shampoo in it. She was using the same bucket and cloth to do most of the cars outside. I was instantly glad I told them I did not want to have the car washed or valeted. The handover went well and to my relief I noticed I had Bridgestones on the car and not Hankooks as the dealer originally told me (he must have looked at the wrong car!). I really wasn't too keen on the Hankooks. The car drives brilliant
  13. Will be collecting my car today. Will hopefully put some photos up later.
  14. When you take your new girl friend out you take it easy. Same with the new car 😀
