  1. I got an automatic 3 points £100 fine as my offence was outside of the rules on speed awareness courses. Fingers crossed for you bud.
  2. I got pinged in a work car several years ago in the greater Manchester police area, long story and not for on here probs... however, the penalty notice was in a white envelope. Gave me 28 days to pay or automatic day in front the judge! And as KAR says default is 30mph in urban areas and dual carriageways with regular evenly spaced lamp posts (inner city by-pass jobs) unless signed otherwise.
  3. So to reinvigorate this thread... with a little over 44000 on the clock I'm getting the dreaded slip under load in 5th and 6th (Standard car apart from Intake and Res Delete). Don't think I've done to bad compared to some on here mileage/usage wise, especially when some days I'm not overly sympathetic to the left and right pedals! So a Helix Organic is on order from Midlands VW to be fitted at my local VW specialist in the coming weeks along with the AKS braided Clutch line, I will have the restrictor removed from the bleeder along with the return spring at the same time just to complete the upgrade package in that department. They are quoting 5 hours for the labour on the clutch change, so standby bank account for this one... Then I think it maybe time to put some pennies to one side for a trip to Ricks gaff for a custom stage 1! I will report back with bedding in and feel of the wee beasty....
  4. This is my beast... 2015 Gen 3 S1000RR Sport:
  5. 18" black prets are available direct from TPS, you'll get a better price than the dealers. I could dig through my junk to about a year ago and figure out exactly how much, but it was about £950 all in for all 4 without tyres. here's my original thread:
  6. Originally a Chard boy here (somebody has to be! 🙄) Family still live around there so visit fairly regular... But live in Northumberland now!
  7. Hi Kayar Use the part number off the box on page one of this post. and go through your local TPS (google is your friend here), give them a ring and get quoted - I rang got a price that the guy rounded down (I think originally they were over £1100 for the set), then when I ordered they knocked a little more off too!! I paid just shy of £950 for the set without tyres.
  8. Give your Local TPS a ring, they will normally give you a discount for genuine VW alloys, I picked up a set of 18" black prets and paid a little over £900 all in, through a dealer it would have been well above the 1K line (I think they are circa £275+Vat ea) My thread with pics and part number included is here: Google TPS and use that part number to get a quote... or any you fancy from the part catalogue!
  9. Like you I deliberated... and snap, chose the H&R hubcentrics (although 10 and 15mm Black as I'm on 18" Black Prets with a different ET, but still maintaining the track offset between front and rear), they are a nice piece of engineering too. Will get round to ECS two piece discs all round and maintain the Black look at some point! Can say I've had no issues from the spacers at all since fitting, and ordered up some new wheel nut covers at the same time through TPS, even with these I found one bolt on each wheel was a loose fitting (didn't matter how i swapped 'em around!), so used a slither of black electrical tape in the caps to restrict the size a little more on the loose bolt heads - they are now a snug fit and touch wood, not lost another yet!
  10. So once again a big up and thanks to @AwesomeHassan and the wider awesome team... Dialled up and got a nice 10% off on a full set of Racingline braided brake hoses and as they were in stock I had them in my sticky mitts the very next day via courier! Now that’s service.. And they are a thing of beauty too: These will be fitted with uprated brake fluid next week by the trusty guys at VWX when I get an interim oil and filter plus Haldex clean.
  11. Awesome advertises them for under 50 sheets along with other retailers (quick google), and generally your local TPS will do trade +vat (cheaper than from dealer who will add a mark up for getting in stock) and some will even round down or offer a discount if collecting in person. If travel to TPS is prohibitive, then a local indie VAG would likely have a TPS account and could be willing to get in stock for you at a cheaper price than dealer. TPS webpage says Gloucester is your nearest outlet based on using listers as the start point not knowing where you are in Worcestershire.
  12. Although none of the above... I picked up a NEUSPEED one whilst in the US... And gear shifting is super slick now with a good reduction in shifter throw, would say +of 25% if not significantly more (says up to 40% on website!), this is also available from awesome here: https://www.awesomegti.com/shop-by-brand/neuspeed/neuspeed-short-shift-kit-6-speed-transverse-2006/ and worth considering as cost is not significantly different. just my 2p' worth... either way a nice mod that tightens the gearshift up.
  13. Or find someone local with PRO/VCDS and ask them nicely (there's a list in here somewhere) Sorry though, that won't be me unless you are on Hadrians wall this weekend!?!
