    Welcome to the forum! A 67 plate with only 9k miles on the clock, that’s a really nice buy.
    Let the modifications begin 😁👍

    EcosseGolfR got a reaction from pisquano in what configuration is quieter? pretoria/Cadiz? sun roof yes or no?   
    For both my R’s, the mk7 & mk7.5 I have specifically went with 18’s as opposed to 19’s. If you have decent roads where you are then the 19’s will be fine but if like all others with piss poor roads then I’d advise going with 18’s and more importantly go with Michelin PS4’s

    Got my Neuspeed RsE10’s back from my detailer, 2 coats of ceramic coating, front face and inner barrel. I was going to do it myself but decided against it in case I made an arse of it.
    Look forward to getting them fitted next month.

    I wondered what happened to my old car. They managed to sort out the body work then after I rolled it

    Can’t give feedback on the FMIC sorry. I have a Wagner one and are highly regarded. The DO888 seems to have the best airflow though from some independent tests. 
     
    You don’t really need to upgrade the engine mounts. Some people have issues with rattles and stuff when they do.
     
    An oil catch can is always helpful and there are usually 2-3 people go for. APR have just released a new one which looks the nuts but no idea if it’s as good as the hype they are spinning on it.
     
    Id go for turbo elbow, R600 intake, muffler delete, downpipe and diverted valve for stage 2 honestly. Any extras as personal choice although I cannot wait to get my white line ARB fitted as they say it makes a huge difference.
     
    Upgraded brakes maybe worth looking into as you will have a lot more torque and power pushing you down the road. It’s amazing what stage 2 does to the car and how fast you can get to without realising.
     
    You already have the clutch upgrade sorted so you’re pretty set. It maybe worth travelling the extra distance if it applies for a custom map from unicorn or to litchfield (who work very closely with unicorn IIRC).
     
    Off the shelf maps will be great but never as good as a custom tune to suit your car.

    The short answer is the vast majority of all o-rings should be lubricated with an oil that the o-rings may be exposed too, in the relation to the o-rings on the TT inlet, a very fine amount of new engine oil.

    Yeah I hope so, as you have to wait a while to get it! Custom Controls always seems to be very busy....good for them I guess.

    Fitted my 3mm spacers to my front wheels which is enough for the R360 wheels to clear my Porsche calipers which is a relief!
