  1. Got these 2 Had this 20 years, few of the places it's been.. Got this back in retention cert now
  2. Got one for sale here if anyones interested
  3. VW OEM sun shades are fixed.
  4. I used the rear screen blind on my Mk7 but haven't bothered on the Mk7.5 as I found the same, it makes it just a bit too dark for seeing being in the rear view mirror.
  5. I recommended the OEM ones, I've used them on both my Mk7 and Mk7.5 Estates, first picture is the dealer photo of my car before I collected it and the second is with the OEM sunblinds fitted (same car just got my winter wheels on) I did try non-OEM when I first got my Mk7 but wasn't happy with the fit so returned them and paid the bit extra to get them from VW.
  6. Sounds to me like it's probably time to move on, even if he says he'll give you the business now it could well change by the time he wants to retire. Does he have children who would oppose it? Do you know what your current employer liabilities are? He may think he can string you along then and in a few years after getting as much out as he can walk away leaving you with debts!
  7. What a complete c**k, obviously parked too tight to your car then let's his child swing the door open, glad you got his plate and details as there no getting out of it with the camera footage.
  8. It you're worried now don't do it as has been said above you'll be paranoid about every noise, get a pedal box and Jb4 while under warranty.
  9. Posted something similar recently about Estate springs, I've seen several good reports about the EMD progressive springs on the hatch but don't think anyone has them on the estate? Just had an email from EMD saying their Sportwagen kit is fine for the R Estate, this drops the a standard estate 1.6" (40mm) seeing as the R is already 10mm lower looking at a 30mm drop, the Racingline springs are a 20mm drop. Thoughts? is 30mm going to be too much?
  10. Just been through the 18" winter wheel decision process, started looking at used Cadiz then BBS SX, OZ's but ended up with Revo RV018 and am really pleased with them, combined with the Continental TS850P's winter driving is going to a less unpredictable than on the Prets / P Zero combination.
  11. Try awesome gti https://www.awesomegti.com/shop-by-brand/ecs-tuning/
  12. Looking to lower/stiffen my Mk7.5 R estate and was originally going to go for Bilstein B16's but seems a bit much for road only use. Seen lots of good reports about the EMD progressive springs on the hatch but don't think anyone has them on the estate?

  13. I'm in for something that doesn't look so tacked on as the maxton offering.
