Been in the USA for two weeks
bought any mk7 goodies while over there ?


Afraid not. I have family over there so can get little bits shipped over as and when. I have seen a pretty snazzy carbon rear diffuser for sale on ECS tuning that I would really like but it's not going to be cheap to buy or ship over.

This is the fella:

I like the rear of the RS.

However. I've now found a Rieger rear that fits the bill - plus it's cheaper !

Next on the list will be most likely be a back box delete and then possibly a remap but for that I would like some grip as it spins in 2nd and 3rd as it is..but the current Bridgestone tyres have not lasted well. I just had a service and they did a full inspection and the fronts are down to 2mm after only 8 thousand miles. I've swapped them with the rears for now until I put the new wheels on.

Splitter is on. Ease of installation and fitment is spot on!

Now the wheels... I'd had reservations before but after fitting just one (forgot I needed tapered bolts !) I don't think they suit the car :(

I'm inclined to agree with you. Wheels are gorgeous, but don't suit the car.

I set a light up to see how they looked closer to silver ..

Still unsure. I think it's the flat face chunky style that doesn't quite go. If I was bagged then most wheels look good imho. It's harder to get it right with a mild drop.

I think its worth a fitment on the rear or maybe one side, i kinda feel there's light at the end of the tunnel. Be a real Shame as there bit the normal run of the mill wheels

Yeah, I have the bolts now so may as well do a proper "side test" :)

Love these but I did wonder this when you bought them. I think you'd pull them off if slammed but at the current height im not sure it works.

If I have time and they don't sell this week I'll stick two on for my own peace of mind as well as yours !

In other news - I've been offered a cracking deal on an exhaust so watch this space!

So - The wheels sold surprisingly quick and are now sitting on a bagged mk6 and look sweet !  I didn't get chance to try 2 on even. 

 

With the money I sold the R43's for Ive managed to order new wheels which are more OEM and set of 235/35/19 Uniroyal Rain Sport 3 tyres.

 

I decided that this country is more or less raining all the damn time so some decent tyres should be purchased. The Bridgestone Potenza's fitted from new have not impressed me at all.

 

Remus exhaust with custom middle box is happening soon.

They were supposed to be with me last week but I've been promised they'll be here this week coming now.

I may as well show once they're here rather then tell you.


Cheeky plate change too ...

Thanks man, I've had to explain it to non car people but they just don't get it lmao

In other news, been let down by my local wheel supplier. He took way too long and gave me too many excuses as to why my new wheels hadn't turned up so I've told him to do one and I've ordered something else.
Fingers crossed these will be here early this week as my tyre guy has had my tyres waiting at his place for a while now.

Today was the day that my car got a whole lot louder.

03fff766d2f3bdc52dac098e1db089e2.jpg

Got rid of these old things (it's ok,they are safe in the shed)

72245ee3d95e59f64838583d68f3607a.jpg

New tips compared to old :

53d3e8d4105671bc4b570914a0e926cb.jpg

Underside shot - resonator delete and Remus back box delete :

Final result :

Haha I think I should call it "omg, it's too loud. I best put the resonator back in"

But seriously - it's offensively loud.
