  1. Following. Im interested in going a similar route myself so keen to hear about your experiences!
  2. I had this, the clip holding the CV boot on wasn't secured correctly from factory. All the oil leaked out and had to replace the whole joint. Only made the sound around car park speeds at full locked but it got progressively worse.
  3. Pad choice is going to make the biggest difference here. I'm using EBC yellow, a noticeable improvement on initial pedal feel and brake fade for fast road driving use. They are great from cold but do squeal a little bit (when cold) if you are listening out for it.
  4. Just installed these myself. They provide a noticeable drop probs about 15mm. For me the change in the car is barely noticeable, I'd say its maybe 10-15% firmer, but also the change in handling is subtle as well. I'm running 18" without DCC. Personally I feel like another 5mm drop would of been perfect, but 19" I think the wheel arch gap would look spot on.
  5. I'm sure within the manual somewhere it says you can use upto 10% ethanol without any harm to the engine. Ethanol is actually a higher octane rating then normal petrol, so it shouldnt reduce the RON of the petrol. (This is probably why Tesco Momentum is cheaper then Vpower as it uses ethanol, compared to shell V-power which I dont think does). Fuel consumption should increase (MPG go down) as ethanol has a lower calorific value then petrol. Sorry for being boring!!!
  6. I'm running MTEC drilled and yellowstuff for about 1000 miles, massive upgrade from the stock pads for initial bite and heat fade. No squealing either, if buying again I'd probably get the discs silver coated to help stop the rust on the hub/edge of disc. Bedding in is abit of a ballache, and they feel like someones replaced them with weetabix for the first few miles in the morning. But all in for £200 more than happy with the setup.
  7. It's the first set that comes up - for future reference you can check your manual, on the front page there will be a white sticker. You'll have a set of PR numbers. You can match these numbers to the parts you are buying. In this case you should have either 1LJ, or 1LM somewhere on there. Pagid get my vote if you're on a tight budget - if not at the price of genuine vw pads id go aftermarket.
  8. Wow... That sure is a real headturner. [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. Mental. Thanks for sharing actual puts a real life perspective on those pubtalk dyno numbers🖒 Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. Nice one Not too far from me either! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. Great stuff. I'll have to try and remember this when I get around to changing mine then. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Looks nice!!! Any noise from this discs and pad combo? Nothing worse than squeeling brakes! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Didn't read it properly [emoji849] Great service for him being able to fit you in for a last minute DSG map. Will be interested to see the full results when you go back to him on the 2nd 🖒 Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Great feedback. Will surely be following down the path of a unicorn remap in the future. Did you get his new "impulse" feature? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. Looks great. Where did you get it done and how much was it? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
