Treated the car to Gtechniq CSU with Exo through Nathan @ Cambridge Autogleam. Shame it had to rain on collection day (yesterday) so it’s now got a right dirty bum and I can’t wash it for a week. Will

Got rid of those nasty Bridgestones and Swapped them for Michelin ps4. Costco is are doing an amazing deal At the moment ,Got them fitted balanced for only £73 a tyre.

Time for a new 8R thread!     Share your 8R purchases here, big or small, medium or minuscule.     To kick off......a mini one.   Following the footrest cover, made another

I am happily retired (with clean mats in the R 😉)  so no danger of that. Link is Racingline Performance Parts UK Shop | racingline.shop

 


Well if you’re at a loose end as you’re not running Racingline, you could always pop by to my driveway with a vacuum cleaner and tackle my shameful mats.   Tea and biscuits will be provided as I’m working from home.  😁

Not sure my shop vac could withstand a trip to Kent.  (Yes, that's right, I use the same vac as is used for wood shavings and general DIY debris! 😮

 

Back on topic. some oil that meets VW 508 for topping up.

A big fluffy microfiber drying towel.

I like the Garmin app that allows you to combine the video from up to 4 cameras into one video feed

Ok now that my R is almost here, where can i buy Sill protector's for the Mk8 from please ... 

 

What site do you fancy?  You can get Lockwood Stainless Steel ones with forum discount. See here for details and pics.

Or there’s other types.  Such as RGM ones (fronts only) https://rgmautomotive.co.uk/product/rgm-door-sill-protectors-dsp206-golf-mk-lll-hatch-1-2020/

 

Possibly some others on eBay such as the sticky back vinyl type but those are less hard wearing.
