  1. Well that settles that. I’m rolling out the vinyl next Saturday and giving it a whirl.[emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Cheers Scotty, couldn’t get on with the gunmetal always looking dirty so though I’d do something different. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Ahhh yes. I didn’t fill that bit as I wondered if it detracts from the line running front to back. I’ll be interested to see if someone has filled it and what it looks like. I have some space wrap in the garage so if no one has then maybe I’ll fill one side next Saturday just for fun[emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hi Dave, I had mine done and had it wrapped right up to the spoiler at the back. I love how it makes the car look, well worth getting it done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. She’s happier with this car than she has been with any of my weekend cars since my R8, and even that drove her mad due to the power cut in between manual gear changes (whiplash anyone?) In fact the splitter, diffuser, the new plates are all on her dime. We do more together with this car than with any other ‘second’ car I’ve had, so it’s filling it’s role, and some.[emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Resprayed by a guy locally. I couldn’t get on with the darker Prets and at some point will go with bronze RV019’s, probably when the tyres wear down or the Prets buckle like they have a reputation for doing. The more I’ve been out in it and looked back at it, the more I like it[emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Cheers Dave. Gold Prets we’re always gonna be marmite, but that’s the joy of modding. ETTO and all that. Profile pic and a couple more for good measure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Paints pretty good tbf. If I’m honest I’d have liked a couple more coats to give it more depth, but hey, can’t have it all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. This week saw one last change. Couldn’t cope with Prets that constantly looked dirty, didn’t want black and just fancied something different. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Defo the right choice! Looks great[emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. The last week has seen a couple more tweaks to the car with carbon mirror caps going on and a steering wheel retrim. The mirrors were easy enough to fit and whilst not quite as good as I’m sure OEM ones are, they certainly look good and were worth the £90 they cost. Before, during and after The steering wheel was done by Jack at Royal Steering Wheels. I’ve used him for retrims in the past and can’t fault the quality of his work. I went for black alcantara with silver stitching, along with a blue alcantara stripe at the top. Really pleased with how it looks and feels. One last update planned for this week and then I’ll leave it be for a while. It’s pretty much where I want it now but I’m still sure I can faintly here some VWR lowering springs calling me! What to do!?!? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hi Dave, I have the Maxton one in the link below and get your point about the bolts, but once it’s on you can’t really see them and maybe (just maybe), I quite liked them anyway as they bring out the ‘because race car’/boy racer in me[emoji85] https://www.maxtondesign.co.uk/body-kits/volkswagen/vw-golf/vw-golf-mk7/vw-golf-mk7-r20/vw-golf-7-r-hatchback-rear-diffuser-rear-side-splitters Install of the centre piece is easy, it fits against a lip at the back of standard diffuser, bolts through and then has 3M tape that holds it against the curve. This vid shows it all very clearly https://youtu.be/IG7GjljPoMU The side extensions bolt through in three places, although one was far too restrictive to reach so I just drilled another hole that was more suitable. It’s not the cheapest out there, but it’s not the most expensive either. But it’s certainly robust enough and looks good to me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I have toyed with the idea, kinda Focus RS look. But I also don’t want to black it all out and potentially make the car appear higher at the front than it actually is. Knowing me I’ll continue to experiment/dick about with it and see where it takes me, but for now I’m content with the front end. The mirrors, steering wheel and wheels are in for the next raft of tweaks! Roll on next week![emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I went 8mm front and 12mm rear. I was tempted to go 10 & 15 but couldn’t be bothered to worry about any arch rub when i switch to Pilot Sport 4’s and their squarer shoulder next year. I’m very happy with them too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Got some number plates to remind me of the reason why we got this car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
