    Car is back together, seems to be working all fine.
    I have replaced a faulty ABS sensor, fixed a broken bonnet cable clip, and also fitted the Kurzy loom I've had since 2015.

    Car is almost ready for MOT. Then supercharging.

    Also picked up some used Eibach springs for a mk2 golf that stand higher than the supposedly "correct fitment for a corrado b12 kit springs".
    I'm not buying it but whatever. It's over now.

    New wheels, no more spacers!

    This is the first picture of the ride height sorted with the mk2 eibach springs (on a bilstein b12 setup)

    Looking good. I've got the B12 kit too (with the revised rear springs). Did you fit the original rears? I didn't bother as new they'd be wrong looking the size of the spring.

    Edit - now seen your previous pics and see you did have it fitted. New setup is much better imo - gaps looks consistent front and back. I reckon the original springs in the eibach kit were really for the -50mm sportline kit.

    Yeah, it shredded the sidewall of my rear left tyre so needed to get it sorted before I put the new wheels on.
    I also followed the manual with the spring setup, whereas the garage who fitted them decided to put both retaining washers above the bump stop rather than one either side...

    17's, but I'm happy you think that!

    I already miss the RC's



    Last night I fixed the electric mirrors so now they work. Two last electrical gremlins to go:
    1. No radio (ignition live wire is dead)
    2. Heated seats plug in (hopefully got a TV box sourced to fit OEM)
