    yes their on and i love them, butttt cente caps wont arrive until tuesday and im picking up 4 20mm spacers from awesome tomorrow, so picis will be later in the week, im not sure abour the falken 452s ive done 50 miles or so in the wet and they feel great thats not the problem, they are 205s and stretched 40s, so they look like my car isnt lowered so ive ordered 4 toyo 888 45s ive always liked them.

    Im booked in on Saturday at awesome for 4 wheel alignment.
    Did want air con service aswell but they don't have a big enough slot in the day for both. My aircon is a bit smelly ! :/
    Atm I think my alignment is a mess.so hopefully it will feel loads better after it's done.
    I take it you've prob not gone to awesome for the coily fitting?

    Sounds good dippers! Just got my car back from the garage! Had new clutch, slave and master cylinders done!
    I'm a very happy boy now. Gear changes feel amazing and the clutch feels like it should. Lol.
    How long do you think I should let it set in before I start flooring it do you think?
    Anyone?

    Coilovers are on :) 1 of many pictures that were taking by mutantfatcat yesterday at Cumbria Vag 2011

    Got to say, if anybody wants to improve their ride quality because it's feeling crashy, i'd recommend coilovers. I've got AP and the ride and handling is fantastic now

    Hadn't done a log since the map was sorted so here it is at the moment until it's booked in again to get tweaked further. The boost has been turned down (forge unos) a few clicks so on the boost gauge it's showing around the 14-16psi mark...

    Think it's time for another VCDS logging night! :yes:

    Anyone who would like their car logging or scanned for suspected faults is welcome to come along! If you want you can just pop by for a quick chat!

    Wednesday 31st August 2011 - 19:30 onwards - meeting at Awesome Gti


    I maybe limited to the number cars i can log due to time and also roads but i'll do my best! Also people are working in offices nearby and security patrol the area so please drive safely on your way there and back home :zen:

    Starting a list this time so we all know who's coming :)
