    Well I couldn't get the vagcom to work on the laptop so took it to a garage who hooked it up 4 me an it only cost a tenner, it was the lambda sensor playing up cause I've got a blow pre cat, I think it might be the manifold, so should be a cheap fix but pain in the arse to get to, went and picked the car up from the garage and was on my way home, I was rolling along stuck in traffic when the steering wheel started wobbling really bad, so started to pull across 3 lanes 2 pull up in the bus lane and the front wheel fell off, the Dick who had the car b4 me had only gone an put the alloys on without any spigot rings, good job I was on rolling along bad thing its trashed my wing, just waiting 4 the spigot rings 2 turn up then gonna take it down my m8s to make sure it hasn't done anymore damage

    Why do the wheels have spigot rings? Are they aftermarket?

    Spigot rings wont make the wheel fall off, loose wheel nuts will though!

    Did you buy from a dealer or private? I'd be having a word with them either way!

    Not having spigot rings if the hub diameter is different will cause vibration and shake the wheel nuts loose, have seen this happen before

    The forge blow off/splitter causes slight misfires when back on the throttle as it dumps metered air to atmosphere so fuels for the air you havent got as its been dumped out of the intake instead of recirculating just mod the airbox below the filter or fit an open cone filter.
