  1. It's from https://kwjperformance.com 🙂 @expor Yeah, I love the tail lights, even just the look of them is much better in my opinion! Thanks! The tyre size is the same between the Bridgestones and the Michelins, but the handling is definitely better. I haven't done any 0-60 runs yet, but I'll certainly testing that soon 😃 I'll be sure to get some pictures up after the trip! I've gone every year for the past 3, tempted to go twice this year 😂 Unfortunately not, I believe the reading on the ECU still reads correctly though. The guy who done it said he's expecting to be able to offer mileage correction in the next 6-9 months
  2. Give me a week and I’ll be able to tell you, just fitted cup 2s to mine Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I've done a few bits to the car recently, so thought it may be a good time to update this thread! I'm heading to the Nürburgring again on the 10th May, and to help reduce any oil surge (which I had been experiencing at Oulton Park) I picked up a Racingline Oil Management system. Bit of a hesitant purchase as there's a lot of negative feedback about this system with it leaking, turning orange and the drain bolt stripping overtime, but all the other options were over £600 and I couldn't bring myself to fork out that much! Anyway, it's fitted, and no problems so far, but after just 2 weeks it caught half a cup of substances...! A spider also decided to climb itself into the cup afterwards. 😂 I changed out the terrible Bridgestones on my 18" Neuspeeds for Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s. Very excited to see how these perform, especially with my ring trip next week, just hoping the weather is good! I swapped my Unitronic intake pipe and turbo elbow for the all in one Turbo Technics intake pipe and elbow after hearing it has much better flow, and just because it's only right my intake pipe matches my turbo brand! Haha. I also grabbed myself a great deal on virtual cockpit, MIB 2.5 Discover Pro, MK7.5 rear tail lights, and MK7.5 heated leather seats. Wiring into the BCM for the heated seats was quite nerve racking, but I managed to get it all working - aside from the fact I wired them the wrong way round, the drivers side button controls the passenger side and vice versa! I probably should've tested that before putting the entire interior back together, but hey ho, haha. I love the virtual cockpit and MIB 2.5, massive upgrade over the standard MK7 equipment. However, I am still missing the trim piece for the Discover Pro screen, so if anyone comes across one, I'd appreciate it if you could let me know, it's about £150 from VW and I'm not sure if I can bring myself to pay that much for a little bit of plastic trim 🙃 Lastly, I fitted a full replacement carbon fibre diffuser which I think completes the rear. Next on my to-do list is the rear brake pads, I'm stuck between EBC yellowstuff (around £60) or Ferodo DS2500 ( around £160), can't decide whether the Ferodo's will be worth the price difference. (I would appreciate any input) I'll upload some photos of the interior changes and rear lights that I've retrofitted tomorrow, somehow I haven't taken any yet!
  4. Thanks, I forgot to reply to this! That helped me out a lot. I did managed to get them all fitted and working 👍
  5. Looking for a bit of advice! I have just bought a set of leather heated seats from a MK7.5, which came with a new Kufatec wiring harness and the climate control with the heated seat buttons. (the guy I bought them off had them in his MK7 but never got around to wiring in the heated bits) Has anyone else used the Kufatec wiring harness? If so, any chance you could help me out as I'm not sure where the pins go. Here's a link to the harness: https://www.kufatec.com/en/comfort-retrofits/seat-heating-adjustment/harness-seat-heating-for-mqb-39952 Kufatec have a manual but they only let you view it if you have the original order details, and the guy I bought it off can't find the email, and tried contacting their customer service but they were little help
  6. Check what happens when you change where you park your car. If mines parked on the road/street it reduces it by about £200-250 compared to parking it on the drive, and about £500 compared to parking it in the garage See if you can add any additional drivers with a lot of driving experience, parents, uncles, etc... Try playing with your voluntary excess. My excess is £1.3k but I've 'insured' by excess with https://www.questor-insurance.co.uk/private-excess-protection-insurance.aspx cost about £70-80 to insure my excess if I recall correctly, and it reduced my car insurance by about £150-200 Lastly, see if your insurance provides a discount if you get a dash cam fitted. Mine don't but I know some people who've managed to knock at least the price of the dash cam off
  7. Yeah, hopefully! It’s crazy how easy you can make a hatchback these days Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Little update. Fitted 18" Neuspeed RSE10 with worn Bridgestone Potenza S100's and got these Dragy times, best out of 3 runs. 10.81s - 1/4 mile 6.86s - 100-200km/h 3.03s - 0-60mph Extremely pleased with them, they were done with full weight and half a tank of fuel. Little less fuel, some octane booster and dialing in tyre pressures should get me into the 2s 0-60 and 10.7s on 1/4 mile!! For reference, the 19" ATS Racelight wheels I usually run with are about 9.9kg. The Neuspeeds are 8.6kg, so a 1.3kg difference has resulted in 0.22s on 1/4 mile and 0.19s on 100-200km/h. These runs were done on the same road, with similar weather conditions. Also worth noting the tyres on the Neuspeeds (Bridgestone's) are not as highly rated/regarded as the PS4S' on the ATS Racelights, so maybe with some better tyres I'd see even better times... See Dragy photos on this post:
  9. Yeah painfully close [emoji24]just need to find a road with a tiny bit more gradient, and I’m picking up some lightweight 18” wheels this weekend, which should get me there [emoji1305] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yeah, got it a couple weeks ago, I'm still figuring out which points are best to shift but so far I've had 3.04s 0-60, 7.05s 100-200, 11.03s 1/4
  11. I would stick with what's tried and tested, just get an uprated IC and replace the standard one. Forge, Airtec, Wagner, APR, all good options, a lot of people claim Wagner is the best, but unless you're going Stage 3 I doubt it makes too much difference
  12. I haven't done it, but it is a straight swap. Just two screws on the top of the grille and it pulls out
  13. @bask04 I'm not too sure to be honest, I'm not a mechanic or a tuner unfortunately. However, when I've spoken to people who've had clutch slipping issues with the DSG, it almost always seems to be a result of the tune. I know plenty of people who have used a particular tuner, experienced clutch slip, then switched to a different one and not had any issues. In regards to the fuel pump, I'm pretty sure you are on the verge of what the stock HPFP can handle. You're best asking your tuner this question though, they should be able to explain whether you need an HPFP or not Also, every tuner is different. When I was going Stage 3, I was told by one tuner that I need a LPFP and a HPFP to achieve 500bhp, one tuner said I didn't need any, and the one I chose said I just needed a HPFP. I guess they tune cars in slightly different ways, which changes what is needed slightly.
