  1. Right I didn't really want to sell these as I wanted a set for so many years, but I could do with freeing up some money to do a couple of bits to the car. Specs are 16x8 5x100 et15 so a bit of poke on a mk3, not sure about a Corrado. Repainted by me in a Fiat Gold which was the best gold for wheels I could find after weeks of searching,( I still have some paint left for touch ups). The have brand new chrome centre caps. Tyres are 195 40 R16 Continental Sportcontacts that have only done around 2-3k miles. A deal could possibly be done without the tyres. I'm located in Bishops Stortford Hertfordshire and pick up would be much preferred. Any questions please ask.
  2. WTB OBD2 Schrick intake manifold.

    @bealieboy may have one for sale[emoji6]
  3. LIVE POLL: VR6 or R32 - Vote Now :)

    Vr6 pretty much the only reason I bought a mk3 golf!
  4. LSD and updated clutch?

    I run a quaife diff and just a standard sachs clutch as recommended by Vince at Stealth he said unless you're driving the car really hard all the time on track days or whatever with supercharged cars standard clutches are fine because of the way they deliver the power.
  5. Hi, going to try to do a bit of a build thread for my new project which was a bit of an unexpected bargain buy from eBay, it was sold with a clutch that needed doing,(nylon bushes on the pedal had disintegrated) 68p or something later from vw this was fixed;) touch! Abs pump needed changing,(it didn't was the front right sensor £10 later fixed!) Luckily for me it was a bit undersold in the advert as it wasn't mentioned that there was 17 stamps in the service book,half we're main dealer and half were from the phirm who seem to know the car pretty well,apparently it had a shrick manifold on it but this had been removed from the car by the previous owner VRT in Slough who sold it as spares or repairs on eBay to me! If anyone knows anything about the car I'd love to know more about its history,apparently a bloke called Michael owned it for the last 8 years ish? Anyway the car as I got it with horrible crystal lights etc!
  6. Got started on fitting the bumpers and Votex kit in the week;

    Hi mate welcome to the club! Definitely the best mk5 R32 colour that!! [emoji7]
  9. This weeks errr progress or more me tinkering I suppose [emoji848] I've decided to revert back to the original bumpers so I can fit the full Votex kit as the rear bumper doesn't fit US bumpers at all and the front doesn't fit properly as shown on the previous page, so I thought that I'd have a play with the plate recess on the front bumper to match my shortened rear [email protected] kindly donated his old front bumper for me to cut bits out of, so I could try the following; Trimmed about; Holes cut into bumper, no going back at this point; All hot stapled and plastic welded in; A skim of filler and some primer; I then trimmed up the rear bumper to fit the Votex rear skirt; Then for the first time since painting the car nearly 3 years ago I ordered some of the exact paint the car was painted in and put a coat over the 2 bumpers that I'll hopefully get fitted over the weekend if I get a spare hour or 2!
  10. Insurance

    I'm with HIC really good with mods, mines about £300 with all mods, (which is a lot!) declared but I am old now[emoji15][emoji24] at 34
  12. So due to having a 1 year old further progress has been slow and I can't completely leave the car alone or say that's it's finished as that just doesn't happen with me![emoji51] I did manage to turn this;Into this though; Hopefully my little one will now make it to a couple of shows with me next year in his own car![emoji16]emoji16][emoji16] So back to the main subject I managed to acquire a Votex body kit from Wayne as part of the deal with the Mystic blue VR6 I sold him a little while back, so I now plan to fit the full kit next year along with a set of Euro bumpers with a couple of little bits I want to do to them, here's a few pics; The kit will be finished in a textured black finish to give it a factoryish look Had to do a couple of repairs to the kit; Also managed to get these from Christian Wolf over in Germany Super rare smoked ZKW long fogs . Also bought a Porsche Boxster front calliper set up to fit 312mm discs for a good price off of Ebay Decided to paint them black as I have quite a bit of red already![emoji23][emoji85] Then confuse people by letting them think I've fitted TT RS or S3 calipers to a Mk3[emoji1][emoji6] Also got the side skirts removed ready for the Votex ones to go on, Not liking the non side skirt look[emoji15]! And apart from pulling my interior apart to fit a DAB Alpine head unit and roof aerial that's about it for now!

  17. Rear lower glass spoiler

    Yes says Votex and part numbers etc on the back of everything
  18. Rear lower glass spoiler

    I'm in Hertfordshire, my Zender one looks similar but has Zender moulded into the top and my mate has an ABT one which also has abt on it, we were thinking it could possibly be a Kamei one?
  19. Rear lower glass spoiler

    Hi yes does look a bit like a Zender one though it's not as I have one of those, so is it Votex do you know? I'm interested as I'm currently painting and fitting a Votex kit to my car, so am very interested
