    CM Wheels.

    I have black 19” CM reps and the powder coat finish is pretty bad! Really orange peely and a few runs! They also came in the wrong size from what was advertised, they are 8.5” wide not 8”!! There was also paint missing on one wheel behind the spokes. I spoke to CM about this an they did offer to allow me to return them even though they didn’t have to as had fitted tyres. But they gave me the money to have the 1 wheel re painted. I didn’t want to send them back due to the fact I’d fitted tyres and I’d be left looking for wheels again They seem to be a solid wheel, already hit a few big potholes an expected to find damage and they are still all good!

    Mk7.5 upper front grille removal

    Have you got the part number for this part, it doesn’t seem to be listed on that diagram, it’s the very bottom black bit

    Don’t suppose you have the part numbers for the above items do you?? I’ve damaged No 20 and also the very bottom black piece that goes onto the bottom of the bumper not sure if it’s No17 in that pic, or if that is part of the lower grill. Any help would be appreciate

    Lowering springs fitting

    I didn’t need to on the drivers side but with the passenger side being the shorter shaft I had to
  6. Cheers mate I’ll have a look for the part number
  7. Where did you get the spoiler from mate? Been after one of these, is it the genuine VW one?

    Inconsistent pops and bangs?

    If u have the car in race/ individual I find you have to cycle through all the modes back to the one you were in and have the gearbox in S or S then over to manual to get the pops back after a restart, it’s as if the car forgets until u do this, works every time for me when u do this

    So glad everyone sees this my way! I read the first post and thought surely I can't be the only one who goes mental at this type of driver [emoji23] Thanks for the reassurance VWROC!!

    JB1 Held in customs

    I went and picked mine up from my local parcel force depot where it was held, I think I had received the letter at that point, but that saved me a day or 2

    No it doesn't, how can it?? It doesn't connect into canbus. The new JB4 should be able to do this and this works on the JB4's for BMW's But 100% doesn't do it on the JB1

    Logging with the JB1 only logs boost, pretty pointless if your trying to find out how the car is really doing. U need to use VCDS to log timing pull to know how safe the settings are that you are adjusting

    I removed the glove box and battery to route it into the glove box, there's a few grommets there an I just pushed a screwdriver through, nice an easy to change in the car now That's on an S3 so the golf will be the same
