the Ride is "firm but fare" lol


Comfort wise, its not too far off stock, but handling wise - worlds better !


I have recently started to have the Driveshaft catch the Roll bar quite often so i think thats next on the list.

Went to see Ben from R-Tech last night and after a lovely cup of tea he got to work on the 'map - and enabled the auto lock/unlock feature as well as the little alarm blips.


The car is sooooo much more responsive now and feels super smooth - one of the best mods ive done to be fair! it pulls and pulls all the way through the rev range.


I love it !  Ive not even been on the motorway yet [:D]


I would reccomend them to anyone and Ben is a top bloke !

I am glad your happy with the R-Tech remap and service Ben provided to you

But..... come on mate Ben and his bloody little alarm blips!!, I wish he never found out how to do them, he is like a kid with a new toy now..lol

Thanks for you custom  mate! Any problems you know where we are.

 Loving the look of the Bora mate. Keep fancying the TT alloys, but not sure how they'll look on a silver 5-door golf, will have to search for some pics!!


My Golf had the R-tech treatment last week, totally transformed the car[:D]


Ben and Nick are both top guys and service was spot-on. Come highly recommended from me. Forgot to ask them to activate anti-hijack though like a Parus caeruleus[:(]  Might have to get a liquid guage fitted as an excuse to get it activated..

Cheers dude, Im getting bored of the TT alloys (been on for about a year now)  so they may be up for sale / swaps soon  - im thinking i want something with some dish !

PM me a pic of your Golf and i'll do a photoshop if you like ?

I think about 50mm, getting some issues with the drive shaft rubbing on full right hand lock especially on inclines like multi storey carparks and steep driveways.

That sounds just like my suspension did before I took it off and found the strut insert nut loose. Easiest way to tell if your driveshafts are rubbing on the ARB will be to check that the paint has rubbed off on the driveshaft where the ARB hoops over it.

Nah, wasn't my ARB catching.Just put your steering on full lock and have a look. You will soon see if it's rubbing or not, although I don't think I'd be wanting to mess around in this weather either!!


P.S Your cars looking sweet BTW[H]
