  1. National doesn't show on the blue light website - do they accept it in store or over the phone do you know?
  2. That looks spot on! Those wheels suit it well.
  3. Literally just fitted 19" Prets to mine, replacing the 18" factory Cadiz and I keep thinking exactly the same thing. Checked the pressures a few time and they're all sat just right so I assume it's just the low profile
  4. Stealth mode activated [emoji41] I can’t act too cool though, day one week one I kerbed the near side front and put a split in the tyre wall resulting in a brand new eagle assy 5 being written off and the wheel needing a refurb [emoji2961] All sorted now though, handles like a dream in comparison to the potenzas. The noise it makes with the res delete and full R600 setup is great! Much beefier. Ride quality on the racing line springs is OK, doesn’t seem massively different to standard when driving normally but if you’re unfortunate enough to hit a pothole (or kerb in my case [emoji102]) it’s definitely more crashy. It’s sat much nicer now though with the wider prets too - front is flush although the photo doesn’t look like it, rears need slightly spacing which I’ll be sorting shortly. More to come very soon [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Right this is getting bought then! Really looks very nice - much more subtle than the centre cut out but still obviously more aggressive. Thanks for the response again Pete [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks mate, much appreciated! I thought this would be the case but of course Maxton replied with the stock response of “only for the model shown” [emoji102] Guess that’s another 100 notes out the wallet then [emoji23] looks really smart! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks mate. I’ve had it for a year now, just haven’t posted as if I’m honest I found the R very quick but pretty clinical in comparison to my M135i (which was knicked sadly). Whilst the R is definitely more usable all around, there was something about the 6 pot turbo RWD that did something for me - but I couldn’t justify buying another as that particular variant of car was tainted... As a result I’ve spent the last 12 months considering all sorts whilst just running the golf, then I came to the realisation that for what I want from a car I’d have to spend significantly more to buy what I wanted out the box (M3/RS4) than what I’d spend modding this... I fitted the JB4 back in Jan which did transform it to be fair, so now for a bit more noise and some better aesthetics! Fingers crossed when it’s all fitted that will scratch the itch, but I’m sure that won’t last for long... especially being on this forum [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Just received my CM Prets and they’re 8.5J also so if mine turns out half as nice as yours I’ll be chuffed [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. And so it begins... CMWheels 19” Prets turned up, same day Goodyear eagle f1 assy 5’s all round with custom black/grey centre badges... One thing that annoys me is how grey the tyre looks against the black [emoji23] some good tyre shine will be needed. It’s in on Wednesday at awesome for racingline springs, res delete and full R600 with elbow and hose. Next up once I’ve financially recovered from this is a TBE, cooler and stage 2 ECU/TCU but there’s some saving to be done before then [emoji28] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Mate of mine has them and rates them for the price - didn’t know they did NHS discount as I would’ve got the Mrs to whip it round [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I got four corners 19” Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 fitted for £481 at National with their recent discount code, seemed decent reviews and a handy saving over the PS4S... they’ll be next though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hi all, Apologies if this is a repeated thread, I’ve tried to search but no joy sadly. I’m interested in a Maxton rear spoiler extension, I’ve got a 7 and the only option I can see is the one with the cutaway in the middle - the variant I would prefer would be the straight style but this is stated as 7.5 only. It’s my understanding (although I could be wrong [emoji28]) that the 7 and 7.5 share a tailgate and spoiler setup? If this is right can anyone confirm if the 7.5 variant Maxton spoilers will fit a 7 or not? Be good to see some pics if anyone has done it. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Cheers mate. Yeah they’re massively different, colour is pretty much exactly the same as the headlights now which is great [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Just tested them now and they definitely work... what a massive difference that is! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. No I didn’t get round to testing in the dark sadly - I had the lights set to ON anyway and not auto and they still didn’t light. I’ll have a go tomorrow and report back [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
