  1. Top strut mounts and bearings

    yeah they look right. I got some bilstein ones from Germany for £50 so might be worth checking out
  2. AG glass polish - is without doubt the best glass cleaner - the mirco abrasives in the polish work similar to a clay but better for glass I used it once and no more fog and crystal clear vision. also check / replace your pollen filter - may help and for £8 why not
  3. depends on how its been looked after and mileage - i'm fast approaching 100k in my 12 plate and everything is fine so far but im expecting clutch / DM soon - maybe a turbo after. You'll be looking for engine code CEGA then. what issues with the PD engine are you referring to?
  4. Octavia vrs 2.0 trip stage 2 remap

    depends, stage 2 could be as simple as new exhaust (turbo back DPF delete) and remap or you could be looking at bigger turbo, s3 intercooler, hard pipework kit, stainless downpipe/dpf delete joined to a non-res system
  5. Race Blue mk3 Estate

    i spy centre parks Sherwood
  6. anyone know what the optimal settings I'm looking for - might give skoda a call and see what they recommend?
  7. interesting - my wheel used to be dead centre and the car drove perfectly straight. so far racked up 18k on current tyres and no uneven wear and still plenty of life in them
  8. Remaps

    BKD 140 bhp without DPF filter Bosch AZV 134 bhp without DPF filter Bosch BKP 140 bhp without DPF filter Siemens VDO Piezo injectors BMA 136ps without DPF Siemens VDO Piezo injectors BVE 122ps without DPF Siemens VDO Piezo injectors BWV 120ps without DPF Siemens VDO Piezo injectors BMM 140 bhp without a DPF filter Bosch injectors. BMN 170 bhp - bigger turbo and Siemens VDO Piezo Injector engines with DPF BUZ 163ps - bigger turbo and Siemens VDO Piezo Injector engines with DPF BVA 163ps - bigger turbo and Siemens VDO Piezo Injector engines with DPF BMR 170 bhp - bigger turbo and Siemens VDO Piezo Injector engines with DPF BRD 170 bhp - bigger turbo and Siemens VDO Piezo Injector engines with DPF Another question the difference noticeable in terms of economy and power? For 200bhp? yes you will notice it 30bhp is a fair amount to gain in one go. as for economy well that depends on your driving style but generally you wont have to make your engine work so hard so you should see an increase but if you nail it everywhere probably not. a thing to note, a remap will make you parts wear out faster so bare that in mind, depending on your mileage might be looking at a new clutch and flywheel a lot sooner
  9. Remaps

    what's you engine code? I don't think you have a DPF on the old PD engines. I know the BKD lump doesn't totally safe to remap ..as long as the one doing it knows what they're doing of course you wont be getting anywhere near 230 that's stage 2 territory more economy over power you'll be looking at around 190. 200 is about the norm / safe much more than this your going to start pushing your parts
  10. I'll ask about caster, I assumed as it's greyed out they don't have the ability to test it it's Hunter Hawkeye they use. rear toe what do you mean about having more toe in? will this ''loose'' feeling effect the free play in the steering as it used to be very direct move the sterring a few mm and the car started to move now it feels like it has about 5mm either way before it does anything. cant ask for a refund it was a mate doing it for free
  11. so as the title suggests got my springs on, all seems well. took it for 4 wheel alignment originally seemed fine, now ive noticed the steering sits very slightly right and if i centre the wheel pulls to the left slightly. can someone have a look at the alignment report and see if it looks ok, the bottom right they said the bush is slightly worn and if they tap the tyre it goes green so too small to adjust.
  12. intermittent wont start

    faulty ignition barrel or issue with immobiliser would be my guess
  13. Gissin's White vRS project

    new springs are on and ride height looks ok. might settle a few more mm yet
  14. new ride height.. still not fully settled so may drop a few more mm
