  1. Rolling Road Day 2017

    Yes loads of different clubs go, e.g. there were a load of fabia vrs's in there this weekend and focus st's the other week. Lets get a load of noisy vr's in there!! Dynodaze or dynodayze. Look them up on fb if you have it. If we do set a date, id like a months or so notice as i work a lot of weekends, guess this would also apply to most of us....funding a vr and that...
  2. Rolling Road Day 2017

    Yes id be more than up for it. I follow a place called dynodayze in the midlands, think theyre in nuneaton, quite far ish from me, but central to the uk....they have loads of different car clubs go there for runs. £30 for 2 runs on saturday mornings usually

    Ideally, with my job i need as much notice as pos, sure this is the case for a fair few of you too. September is a no go for me now, unless its the last weekend
  4. Little update

    Sooo had a few more thiings done to the old girl. Clutch was making a funny noise when at biting, so had a new one fitted and while it was all off thought best to get the chains done. Needed a new thermostat housing and crack pipe too, and the rear engine mount was knackered (snapped) also. While on the subject of crack pipes,i got a black forest billet pipe, which the fellas at vrt could not get to seal up for love nor money, so i just opted for a new plastic one instead. Not happy, as the pipe's quite expensive. As i said i had the work carried out by vrt's of slough, cant recommend them enough, they really know their shit. Also i felt the front end needed tidying up, so got hold of a set of genuine hella headlamps and a better coondition front grille which i swappes out myself, piece of piss, although the headlight adjustor motors are a bit of a bitch. Also got myself a set of sills and front wings ready for when i get the sills done. Couldnt get genuine sills from anywhere. Vw dont do them any more and vw heritage only had patern parts so patern it is. Got hold of a set of genuine wings though from the same guy who sold me the headlights, so chuffed to buggery with that! Thanks Paul. Hopefully i can get the sills done this side of christmas but for now im enjoying her as much as i possibly can without losing my licence.
  5. Which parts?

    Right, just a bit of a survey i guess really. What parts manufacturer does everyone use when getting random bits and bobs for their vr's? Ive always tried to get meyle parts-recently replaced all my bearings and abs sensors with meyle parts, not a problem just wondering what other members like to use. Had a tdi bora a while back and always used meyle too with no probs.
  6. Little update

    Well, been a busy bee lately and had a few things done to the vr. Started with getting a set of oem foglights and some replica smoked indicators and blanks. Theyre quite good, they even have hella stamped on the front, and germany on the rear. I used 2 layers of cheap shiz ebay yellow tint for the fogs as i cant find any frenchies for the mo. Ive bought a 2nd set of solithdes for £50, 2 with brand new firestones on the front. My old set had 2 good tyres out of the four so i made 1 good set and got them refurbished by bespoke alloys down in denham near uxbridge. Ive had a few sets of wheels done by them in the past, their work is second to none, totally recommend them if youre near or far to be honest. I also bought all new bearings, as 1 of them was making a horrible noise, abs sensors (which cured the abs light staying on) discs and a 2nd set of calipers which i bought and had refurbished by brake caliper refurbs of nottingham and painted british racing green fitted. along with brembo rears and ferodo ds2500 front pads. She also had to have new brake lines fitted from the abs pump to the subframes. Also got a set of goodridge braided hoses for good measure. Had the fluid changed to ate superblue aswell and feels like a different car now. Ive also added a few pics of some dodgy filler repairs on the sills ? that i dont like the look of. My mechanic assures me that underneath is repairable, but im not 100%... The cars going to vrt in slough to have thhe chains changed and possibly a clutch, while its there im going to get their opinion. Ive heard nothing but good things about them so hopefully itll be honest. Ill ask them to pull thhe filler back and have a propper look

  12. Powerflow Exhausts. Any good?

    Hiya mate, not had one on my vr-yet, but had one made for my old hybrid turbo'd tdi pd bora. Have to say it wasnt too bad-i had a milltek decat downpipe that the fabricator was also more than happy to fit and work around. Very good service to be honest. Totally custom too which is good. Probably be my first port of call when i get round to doing my vr to be honest. But of course, im mo professional welder so cant really comment on the build quality etc, but never had a problem in 2 or 3 years with it.

  15. Finally got one

    Hi all, im Russ, as title says i finally got my sticky mitts on a lovely black 3 door vr obd2 highline. had a vento tdi before on rx2s and coilovers, and had a 217bhp tdi pd bora which i owned for 8 years! Always wanted a '6 but i do a fair few miles for work so a tdi daily was always a must. Got a new house lately with a little garage, so as soon as i could i sold the bora, bought a cheap a4 b5tdi estate for a daily (and vr6 parts van of course!) and stuffed the garage full of vr6 goodness!! shes a tad tatty at the mo, think a boy racer used to own her-all the fogs and indicators were brush painted black and you couldn't see any light, so changed them as per pic to start with. Engine needs a good once over too, maybe even a twice or thrice over, but ill get there. other plans include overhauling the brakes for some standard refurbed calipers, new discs, braided lines and while im at it bearings abs sensors etc. got some corrado 5 spoke speedlines waiting to be refurbed also. These will replace the solitudes currently on it. Cars already sat on coilovers but i will be changing them to b14's soon and fitting some eibach upgraded arb's. I have a friend who does most of the mechanical stuff but i try and do minor jobs and interior work etc God its good to have that noise in my life at long last! Licence losing noise
