Yeh the suspension will take a week or so to settle but you've bought a great set up there. Eibach springs ride a little hard for some people but not for me. The car should now corner a lot better now. The hoses were done when I bought the car so I couldn't tell you who makes them , they are good quality though. Although I don't think there samco.
Thanks for the nice comments on my Noggy. Had it now for 3 months and started to get a few bit's done which I wanted to change. Done all the front grills to rs ones and fitted face lift front lights. Going to sort a few bit's of paint out then onto changing all the bushes for silicone ones.


Yeah I've heard good things about the Bilsteins and my brother had them on his old golf, which I enjoyed, so I'm looking forward to getting the rear bushes and alignment sorted.

Yeah yours looks really well. It makes me realise how bad my engine bay looks when I see yours. I like how you've still got part of the standard air intake leading to the cone filter.

Looking good so far



I think the A,B,C,D exterior pillar trim bits need a refurb along with the roof rails, couple that with a tyre detail and maybe a drop then she will look awesome IMHO


agreed, maybe add the front grill too! great job on the headlights! cars coming along a treat! shame the bank balance wont be so healthy


Thanks Aidan. I'm thinking of vinyl wrapping the pillars, I'm not too clued up on it (with painting either) but I'll see how it turns out. I'll probably have to get the roof rails painted!

Yeah the bank balance isn't looking too clever right now. I sold my van to buy this on a whim about 3 years ago. I've already got a 'weekend' car in the garage and this was supposed to just get me from A to B (probably not the wisest choice for that purpose). But the car has grown on me so here I am pouring money into it

I've had a soft spot for Hibiscus since I bought a cheap and scruffy tdi dagdag in 'brown' and polished it up!

Thanks mate, yes I was surprised how well they came up!

The splitter is a Seat Leon splitter I got off eBay for about 50. There's a few guides on here for fitting them. It involves just marking up with some masking tape to get it centre, using self tappers to attach it, and a heatgun if you have one to mould it to the right shape near the wheels. And cutting off the overhanging edges.

Had a bit of work done on the car recently:

- New timing belt kit from Jason @ All German Parts, just had that fitted today.
- Samco boost hose kit in blue.
- ABS sensors replaced
- All rear suspension arms and bushes replaced
- 4 wheel alignment carried out
- New Eagle F1 Assymetric 3's (these are great)
- Re-trimmed steering wheel from Jack at Royal Steering Wheels
- New genuine DIS ordered
- Full detail carried out today

The car really does feel a whole lot different to drive now than it did before I began replacing things.

Drove half of the TT course over here on the Isle of Man on the way home and it's perfect for those roads.

Some pics from today:

Few other bits I'd like to do, main interesting one is Brembo 18Z calipers.
