    Wheel Alignment/Tracking

    Vibration feels if it’s coming from the front left of the car.Its noticeable at about 50mph and feels a bit like the rumble strips you get on roads. its more pronounced when you turn the wheel to the left for instance when you change lane the car seems to track straight at low speeds and the steering feels ok and is not vibrating the wheel its not pulling to the side either? it gets louder and more pronounced the faster you go and is like a cyclic drone if you get what I mean. its like really loud tyre noise, like if you had an off road tyre on road. its doing my nut in !
  6. Hi, I have managed to kerb one of my wheels on my 7.5....18" Cadiz....lovely about 30mph in a bendy bit of road under a bridge. Powder Tech in Glasgow did a cracking job of straightening out the wheel and repainting and diamond cutting again. The wheel is true and balanced. I am getting a vibration about 50mph , which I was also getting on the space saver when I had it on for a couple of days. I reckon I need the wheel alignment done as obviously something is going on with the front left side of the car. Is this something I can get done with modern equipment in a kwik fit etc, they use hunter hawkeye, or I have read some older threads about the ACC having to be redone as well and having to go to a main VW dealer

    Peak District vs Isle of Wight

    Did a combination of bed and breakfasts and camping. if you get decent weather then you can just pitch up in some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere. Just take it as it comes, if you like somewhere then do as you please. Parts like around Applecross we done several times in the one day.its our mini Stelvio !.. Have done all the routes on sports bikes and some fast cars. Catch it before its ruined by speed cameras and the likes. Last Saturday in July is after the traditional “fair fortnight” and the roads will be a bit quieter, but if you get up early, it’s light from before 5 you can have an absolute blast.

    MY GOLF R's BEEN STOLEN!!!!! MC17 FFE

    Really horrible,but the main thing is you and yours are safe. After you get over the anger and the sense of loss, just try and remember it’s a “thing” that can be replaced. All sorts of what ifs can run through your head, I could have done this or that. Dont let the scum responsible for this stuff affect how you live your life. We all work hard to get nice things in life, keep on keeping on .

    Welcome,
  12. Seen a few threads about the pedal box being a no brainer for sorting out the dead spot. But which should I go for for my mk7.5. I’m not too technical and am struggling to see the difference...apart from a tenner lol

    Waiting is a pain

    Active display really good. Petty much up down left and right and ok on rhs of wheel controls everything. Sometimes too much info though, try not to get distracted. Pressing the ok button twice gives you additional choices, ie shrinking the dials when you have the sat nav in the middle. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
