  2. I swapped front/rear discs and pads for Mountune M52.. total parts cost £578.66 and had these fitted at my local garage; which I cannot remember the labour cost.. but it was very reasonable rate compared with VW. Also had RS3 cooling ducts fitted at the same time. To be fair there was some meat left on the rear discs and pads, but wanted the discs to match (front and rear); this is why I didn’t go down the VW Clubsport route. Tarox were too expensive and I didn’t have the budget for a BBK. M-Tech were my second choice, but I was swayed by the M52 brand; as was thinking of purchasing more goodies from them at a later date. The M52 discs are 100% EBC and the pads do look like EBC too.. but cannot confirm; but would make business sense if both are from the same manufacturer. Mountune M52 do look like they have some administrative/financial problems.. so I would be cautious if buying from them at the moment. Hope everything is ok with them.. I do like their brand. TBH there is an intermittent squeak every so often when coming to a complete stop from slow speeds.. but can live with this as it’s not all the time. Maybe I just need to keep the mouse happy and give him a bit more cheese [emoji893]!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. upgrading wheels from 18” to 19”; with Michelin Pilot Sport 4s boots.. to be fair the replacement wheels are CMWheels (replicas), but the total cost of new 4x new wheels and tyres was just a tad more expensive than 1x 18” alloy from VW. My old wheel lost a fight with a pot-hole and VW quoted £800.00 for 1x 18” Cadiz alloy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. should be a tax thing.. pay extra get nicer wider spaces. But having said that no doubt someone would still flaunt the rules. would have far less stress and worry if I were to drive a skip and not give a shit [emoji23]. maybe that’s the answer.. sell the R, grow a beard, buy an old Harley Davidson and join an infamous bike club.. and not give a shit.. sorry my pint glass is half empty today.. will walk on some Lego with no shoes on later.. that normally helps to put things back into perspective [emoji23][emoji106][emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. another time.. had fish and chips for dinner with my parents, and then went out on the lash with the lads. We used to have ‘Stella nights’ where you could only drink pints of Stella Artois. After what seemed like drinking 10+ pints of the magical stuff [emoji481], managed to get home safely, went up to my bed room and opened the window.. where the room began to spin.. promptly vomited [emoji2961] down the side of the house. Woke up the next morning, my old man gave me a lift to work; W H Smiths (newsagents and stationery shop for those who don’t know).. and when my old man [emoji69] picked me up.. said that he had spent the afternoon scrapping fish and chips of the side of the house! It was February and the puke had firmly stuck to the brickwork!! We laugh about it now, but I didn’t touch a drop for a while after that!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Exactly the same for me.. 16 years old and downing (never a good idea) cans and cans of Strongbow Super [emoji43] approx 45mins later and I was staggering home and projectile puking [emoji1785] [emoji2961] in peoples hedges!! those were the days [emoji23] Still can’t drink the stuff to this day.. oh memories!!

  11. Forgot to say that 1x Cadiz was quoted (from VW) for approx £800 [emoji15][emoji15].. which made the (man-maths) CMWheels and MPS4s seem like good value! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. £510 was for 4x 19” Cadiz wheels. Did look at Mountune 19” wheels but they were approx £500 each! No doubt quality would have been different, but I am more than happy with the CMwheel set. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Approx £510 including forum discount and delivery [emoji598] [emoji403].. 4x Michelin Pilot Sport 4s were on top of that! [emoji15][emoji51] I did part exchange my 18” 3x good and 1x cracked wheels and tyres (Michelin Pilot Sport 4) to the garage. . I think for £200; could have got more if I split them (Tyree and wheels) and sold separately, but couldn’t be arsed with the hassle. £200 was almost 50% off the 4x MPS4s and I did keep my OEM centre caps. Did think about keeping them as a set of winter wheels, and pick up another one on eBay.. but storage etc etc.. just wanted rid in the end. Was an expensive couple of months as needed brakes (front and rear) and pads as well; went for Mountune M52. Did put a thread together, but can’t remember if it’s in the MK7 modified or MK7 chat page. Hope this helps [emoji106][emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Apologies in the delay in posting.. not the best picture.. no spacers fitted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I went from 18” to 19” Cadiz from CMWheels; the size of the rims can be seen below in the pictures. I have had no issues with the rims. Don’t forget to ask Liam at CMWheels for a cheeky forum discount! Note: my OEM centre caps fitted with no issues. The increase in insurance is negligible.. I am a good boy in declaring mods!! Forgive the dirty R in the pictures.. not had the time recently to throw a bucket over it!!! Also added a picture of 19” Michelin Pilot Sport 4s for reference - I am no Lewis Hamilton, but I think they are a massive improvement over the Potenza Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
