  1. Thanks everyone Ill look around to grab a bargain
  2. KW’s are more forgiving than Bilstein on road. But it’s a close call between a B16 kit which is still superb and a KWV3 kit. Clubsport kit would be my choice for camber adjustability too.
  3. Having a tuner close by is handy. I put APR HO file with DSG tune to help clutch packs with higher clamping pressures in 2016. Car had covered 6k. Complimenting that was a VWR R609 intake elbow pipe. I ran this for a year up to 16k and it ran faultlessly. I went APR stage in 2017 and just added in the APR FMIC and DP. Car now sits at 31k and has a few track visits and it’s been fab. One set of plugs and regular oil changes are a must in my view. I too run a stock exhaust with a DP as I find it just enough. Still very quiet for family duties but nice a deep when hot! The figures are academic although I’m up at Awesome soon as it’s never been dyno’d since stage 1 which it gave 380bhp/ 390lbs on the HO file. More than enough. Stage 2 gives it even more torque across a wider area and it pulls relentlessly when needed. One tip is for longevity of the turbo is that around town or when not in a particular rush or just cruising I stick it Eco. APR run a lot less boost (Stock ECO) which J believe will help long term. It’s pretty good for normal driving anyway.
  4. My wheel has a degree of shine which I would like to get rid of. I have been using Zymol leather conditioner which is like a liquid cream but it doesn’t do much other than condition the leather. Any recommendation on a product that’s reasonably priced? Id like to get it back to that dull new look leather if possible.
  5. Yep they’re cheap on mail order too. cheaper than Black Circles without fitment mail order😀
  6. I agree here too. I actually went from a Nitrac disc / Tarox pad combo to the Tarox 8 Pot BBK. As Dave says it depends on use and the driver. The reason I changed was when I was stage 1 I had a couple of track forays and found my Nitrac set up wanting. Fade and a long pedal! One visit cooked the pads😢 The single piston calliper gets very hot with heavy use! If you’re intention is ‘just’ a bit of blast fast road use an upgraded disc / pad will be fine. Stay away from drilled discs...it weakens them and will crack the disc under hard use thru heat cycles. There are many options but the reason I went Tarox is the kit was designed for the car it fits under all OE wheels ‘without’ spacers and they use Grade A motorsport Discs and ultra light alloy CNC 8 por callipers. Great pedal. As mentioned on another thread I rang Tarox UK and negotiated a deal.
  7. Even cheaper : https://camskill.co.uk/m55b0s24p102408/Michelin_Tyres_Car_Michelin_SuperSport_Pilot_Michelin_Super_Sport_-_235_35_R19_(91Y)_XL_TL_Fuel_Eff_%3A_E_Wet_Grip%3A_A_NoiseClass%3A_2_Noise%3A_71dB Come down again 😬 MPS4S: https://www.camskill.co.uk/m55b0s24p145766/Michelin_Tyres_Car_Michelin_Pilot_Sport_4S_PS4S_-_235_35_R19_(91Y)_XL_TL_Fuel_Eff_%3A_C_Wet_Grip%3A_A_NoiseClass%3A_2_Noise%3A_71dB
  8. Tom Walker is the MD of Retro Resus Have a look on Facebook and Google He was the head at TSR Performance a few years ago He builds the MK5 PGTI Chanp and VW Cup cars as well as being a APR/ VWR/ Tarox agent He fitted my brakes amongst all of the other mods and set my car up. I rang Tarox direct when the kit first appeared and asked what sort of price they could do if I had it fitted at Tom’s and I went ahead. I won’t disclose the price but it’s worth ringing Tarox UK direct and see what they can offer. Graham Scott is also a partner was instrumental in the business having been Tim Stiles racing right hand man! They know their stuff and have built a few championship and race winning cars....Paul Rose and Steve Block to name a few.
  9. I run the PIAA wiper blades. Absolutely brilliant. Much better consistent performance.

    I’ ordered the Bouncers D&D Si edition m, washed down the. Car yesterday and applied D&D Seems a great product as it rained last night so I’ll get some pics and pop them up. Easy to use and nice and glossy. Ill top it up over winter months but being Oryx it’s far more forging than the dark colours as I’ve so far resisted paying out for an expensive detail.
  11. That’s ridiculous 🤔 Why are they so expensive?
  12. Good job Will consider for mine as when I do get on circuit oil temps when hot have reached 131
  13. Just seen MPS4S in 19’s at £137 each from Camskill . Getting cheaper now than when first launched.
