    Just came through the post! :)

    [​IMG]

    Not got time to fit it today, and I'm going on a trip tomorrow, so you'll have to wait for the 'fitted' pics.

    Not sure, it's still in the box unopened. Hopefully it's what I ordered.

    If its some gauge or a set of bulbs I'll be really disappointed.

    Will it actually be fitted this year....unlike the tie arms that I remember you purchased and didn't fit for ages? Lol

    (don't know how you do it, have mods sitting there and not put on!)

    They will be fitted for GTI Inters for sure, it would be tricky to drive without it fitted.

    Ok then have you photoshopped a massive box containing a geezer on a lambretta with Ox blood dm's and a target on his back , to make it seem as though its quite small and sitting on a pool table ?

    I'd be happy with just the box. Its an awesome looking box, my advice is not to open it in case you end up dissapointed :)

    It will probably give me 0.1 secs on the strip!

    I have a Haldex Performance Controller in a bag somewhere waiting to be fitted! Doubt I will get it on before GTI Inters though, it's quite tricky to fit.

    Nah it's easy. A bit of string for pulling the cable through and then there's a "nack" to sliding the controller in and out. Generally pretty easy and easily done within an hour including a haldex service while you're there!

    That's exactly how I did it (twice, had to replace the gasket). Forgot to mention in the previous post but you also need an elastic band to hold the gasket to the controller. Chop it off once you get the bolts in a couple of turns.

    Fair play though. If you're anything like me, I just can't be arsed to do some jobs on the car these days.

    The box size is a bit deceptive, the snooker table it's on is a tiny one that my son plays on! It's the size of an S2K air filter.
