    A while back ago i had my dpf removed, an egr bypass cooler pipe fitted (egr cooler was leaking) & my egr deleted & a stage 1 remap on my 2009 1.9 (BLS 105). At the time my car was running like crap and the above solved all the issues for me. Recently after having had the oil changed i...

    Shocks & Springs advice please

    yes, i am going for the B4's & the eibach pro kit, i was just thinking with the price of that H&R at such a steal i could buy and hold on to it & if not needed then i could always flog it off again, if needed then i got myself a bargain, just don't know about the xenon lights thing

    A3 8P Clutch & DMF replacement advice

    i was actually shocked with the quote when i read it , i emailed them again to confirm that they would be using genuine LUK stuff & they said yes, so fingers crossed they aren't pulling a blinder like in my boy racer years with my gti when i requested a luk clutch but then they fitted some dodgy...
