    Thanks for the heads up though dude if you had a bad experience. But did you say you had them out of the tin? As if they were in the tin then that's bad news.

    Warren, how did you manage to grip the part that is attached to the windscreen to twist it off? Is it stuck to the windscreen & needs re-sticking when you put it back? Ive pulled the mirror of easily but need a bit more guidance getting the base off. Understanding how its attached to the windscreen would help!

    mate do not do anything without knowing for sure how to do it, its very easy to smash your windscreen!

    ok so to take it off the base and mirror you grip the base twist left or right then its free to pull away.

    you can split the mirror off then base once off by pulling it off with force, same with putting the mirror back on the base just force but never do it while it in on the screen.

    to put the base an mirror back on, you offer the base back up on the side so it then touches then screen then you twist it back on and thats it really, it can go slack but you crimp the prongs on the base back inwards.

    be careful mate

    Did you just hold the base by hand? Ive removed the mirror housing itself leaving just the base that it pivots on attached to the window. Tried twisting it but its bloody stiff and very hard to get a grip on it?

    I was gonna ask what issues you had that made you sell the S3 brakes, then I read the first few pages and saw you have a 1.9

    Sorry if this is a little ambush, I've just bought a set of S3 brakes of a member got the carriers, calipers, pads, discs and lines. I assume that they will fit on a 2.0TDI without any issues?

    Also do most people instal S3 brakes on the rear as well? as I haven't seen any for sale, if you still have yours warren and are looking to sell just the rear I'm interested!

    Sorry again about the hijack but didn't wanna start a new thread xD

    Yeah your will just bolt on i think, but you need the big splash guards aswell. i would put mine on but money could go on other things right now. And ive been told thats its not worth doing the rears.

    Thanks everyone for the comments, looks really well when inside now, the only bits i wasnt happy with was the impossible parts to wrap, even spoke to mj and he said you cant do them without a stitch, so with what i did i was happy for being able to do it myself. Jules am going to be able to play 0's n x's in the headlining haha.

    Tim all depends on how much you want to pay, i got mine for £9 a metre but should of been more, i used 3 metres but thankfully didn't have to pay for any glue as a family member is a glue manufacture, set me up a pressure pot for spraying etc

    its a hard job but glad ive done it now.

    Edit- For the pillars though i just used a glue that he had in a can he made up for me, is a good contact adhesive and most off the shelf ones will work on the pillars.

    i was told this but when i first put them on they were only in afew threads and i mean like 4 threads.

    ive been fine up untill today when i took a wheel off and threaded two bolts, am using slightly longer bolts what at first tightened up well- alot better than the original that was very loose feeling.

    i was thinking 8 5mm longer bolts and two lockers that are longer to be safe as everything was fine untill the spacers went on.
