  1. Hi all, I recently purchased an X-parts Performance Intake hose from amazon and i was quite surprised with what turned up. This is a one piece silicon hose designed to replace both the intake hose and turbo elbow, similar to a TT or Forge pipe. Naturally i thought it would do the same job and if it was cheaper (~£145) why not just go with it? After observing the product, i can see why it was relatively cheap. The machined aluminum coupler/ bell mouth which connects to the turbo was quite poorly constructed with metal debris hanging off it. The debris was so weak that it broke off as soon as i touched it . Imagine the pipe being on the car, that price breaks off and enters the turbo . in addition i noticed that the machined aspect was not perfectly circular thus the fitment may be quite poor. Message here is don't compromise on engine parts quality, regardless of price!!!
  2. Might be worth checking channel Leutchte16BLK again. From memory i think this is the channel that controls what the tail lights do, when pushing the indicator stalk down. Mostly likely the wrong adaptation has been selected, as the adaptation names are very similar. i would check if Blinken links Dunkelphase have been selected instead of a similarly worded adaptation.
  3. Found them online, these are the seats from a Golf GT mk6. The Golf Gt mk5 (leather version) also have the same seats.
  4. They won't be Audi a3 seats as they don't generally have a rear armrest in the middle. i would say they look most like VW which do come with the arm rest and i think the production is 2008 which would be in line with them being golf mk5 seats.
  5. The car looks amazing, especially the smoked diamond cut alloys .
  6. Used to have the MPS4S at 38PSI, all around but was recommended 41PSI for 19inch prets, a couple of weeks ago by Michelin technicians .
  7. https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-geneva-motor-show/new-volkswagen-golf-eighth-generation-hatch-spied-undisguised New spy shots of the MK8 Golf. Doesn't look that dissimilar to the current shape golf? Front looks a bit soft and a step back from the mk7 in my opinion. Other than that, the overall shape is not too bad. personally i think the mk7 shape is just right and the mk8 nose look a bit too long. What do you guys make of it?
  8. Not sure if this is a related issue but in my car the heater blows hot air fine but when turning around a corner, or roundabout for example, cold air blows out for the duration of the turn. This is on a 7.5R btw. Anyone else experienced this?
  9. I also made the mistake of placing my jacket, with keys in pocket, in the boot. It locked me out as well instantly. On the plus side i was only a few miles away from home. A feature i discovered recently is if you are playing music from media, you can change tracks by swiping your finger on the screen to the right or left rather than trying to tap next or back 😅.
  10. The Brake disc and pads are the same. Difference with the performance brakes compared to OEM standard brake setup is, performance brakes discs are drilled, a kilo lighter (per disc) and the disc bells are made from a different alloy (so doesn't rust like stock OEM). I believe the performance brake pad are made from a different compound and should give more bite compared to stock. I just did the upgrade on my R, and personally i feel the car is better in the corners and feel slightly more nimble? In hindsight i did also change the tyres from Continental 5Ps to MPS4S 😆. Here is the new setup.
  11. Those alloys look great 👍. Are they 19" inches?
  12. What a coincidence 😅. I am also a H Latif and i bought my 2018 golf R in May. i was going to go with DPB, but decided on Indium Grey in the end. This is my Golf R, enjoy 😆.
  13. These are the videos i used when installing mines.
