    Tell me about it, was meant to be treating myself to a facelift w212 E63 amg last October for my birthday and in September they started to rise rapidly from low £20k to £30k ish from what seemed like overnight so out the window that went, looks like all German power houses have went nuts lately...

    New to the 8P in need of a push in the right direction please :)

    Appreciate the reply, there only stock s line wheels with 7.5j front and rear so not staggered, it just looked like the rears sit in more than the fronts from factory from the threads i seen here anyway, so i wasn't sure to go with 12mm spacers all round so offset will be et44 or 15mm rears off...

    Looking at buying an 2007 a4 2.0 tdi sline

    Keep in mind cars around the 100k miles start racking up bills quickly hence why everyone seems to sell when they reach that milestone, from my personal experience id go real low miles or something north of 150k, or roll the dice of course, buying cars is like pulling a woman with your beer...

    New to the 8P in need of a push in the right direction please :)

    Evening all, Im picking up a 2010 sportback (Sport trim) tomorrow for the mrs birthday present, question, will the car be ok if i lower it 40mm all round and have a wheel set up of 18x7.5j with et44 front and et41 rear with 225/40/18's? Will this give the car a nice flush look with no rubbing...

    The argument for or against the B7 OE Airbox and filter.

    That was the thing on my mind when rtech said i "need" the induction kit on all there golfs and s3's they always replace them but i did wonder after if they just assumed the b7 unit shared the same airbox as the engines are all similar? I haven't read any of the replies on here but if your cars...

    The argument for or against the B7 OE Airbox and filter.

    When i was setting my old b7 up for stage 2+ with the option to go straight to ko4 with no extra hardware i rang rtech and asked there advice on if i should sink £3-400 on an ecs tuning induction kit or if its a waste of money there words were i NEED the induction kit, obviously its up for...

    Advice on potential new car please

    Thanks for the advice much appreciated, and no the car was a flip for me already had a buyer lined up but looks like the seller has pulled the listing 2 hours before it ended with only my bid, very frustrating especially after paying for a hpi check and freeing up a day to do the 6 hour round...

    Just Rob's Quattro Avant Coil-over upgrade project.

    The bilstein's have held up well so I'm sure a top brand like kw will hold up nicely through the years, you generally change wheels 4 times a year so plenty of opportunities for a wipe down anyway lol.

    Would you rather.....

    keep in mind the dtm in uk has manual boxes with bul so resale on that specific dtm wont be great at all, you may well be stuck with a car you cant sell easily or one that's value is hindered potentially massively by the running gear compared to uk cars.
