    Ah ha! Vr6 clutch ay! Sounds good. Yes, definitely need some spacers on the back, especially with ET42 and going low. Mines going well, managed to fit a new front wing, get some new front seats, got it lowered on shocks/springs, some RS6 wheels and little bits here and there to tidy her up! Not sitting low enough for my liking so going down the coilover route aswel! Are you fitting yours yourself? I can lend a hand if you want to lend me a hand with mine at the same time!?

    At last an update !
    after months if being stupid busy at work I've finally managed to get down to the two poster and SMF my transmition
    out with the old ruined dual mass set up


    And in with a mk3 golf gti 16v flywheel



    forgot to take a picture of the Sachs friction and cover plate but you get the idea
    the difference is staggering :0 no more banging and clattering or squealing release bearing BUT the BIGGEST difference is how the car now revs due to a flywheel half as light as the old one OMG it pulls so much quicker through the rev range
    best £170 I've ever spent :D

    Nice one Basil. I know you had a ramp, but how long did it take you? This is on my (ever-growing) list of things to do.

    From driving in to driving out 2 3/4 hours BUT I spent ages getting the old dual mass off as the inner had spun slightly meaning the access holes didn't line up with the flywheel bolts ! I actually ended up smashing the inner part of the dual mass off to gain access to the bolts :0
    its actually quite an easy job , take your time , be methodical and the rewards are unbelievable

    Thanks mate, that'll be an all-dayer for me then upside down in the cold

    Glad I'm not the only one that goes "to hell with it" and breaks whatever is getting in the way. There's nothing an angle grinder, a hammer and some aggression can't fix.

    Well after a big absence I'm back
    December last year saw me purchase myself a nice new discovery so I mistakenly let Basil's MOT,tax and insurance lapse !
    A couple if weeks ago I even took pictures if him ready for him to be put on the bay ! However to sell him he really needs an MOT otherwise I'd be lucky to see more than a couple of hundred quid ! For an MOT he needs a few bits and I thought WTF why should someone get the benefit of all my hard work and money !
    SO I've decided to become a 2 car man .
    Firstly I've been to ECP today and treated basil to this

    And from here he's going to be back on the road as my toy not my daily so it's time to step this up a couple if gears and not just mildly modify but make him into a snorting beast !
    Few issues to address first , rear beam bushes first then I really do fancy some brembos , coilovers , spacers and then we're moving onto fmic , wmi and BT finally ending up at badger 5 .
    Keep em peeled , were back :D

    De wipered










    Couldn't get the last picture to do it justice due to the sun but it's looks just like the glass but is infact a PVC domed sticker which looks great and only a few quid from the bay
