  1. Some really nice work going on there, keep the pictures coming, its gonna be great when finished
  2. Just read the 35 anni write up in PVW and a little disappointed that it mentions all other engines including the TDI and 20vT's but no mention of a TFSI or a DSG, and it was the only one there and that I know of, there is only 1 other in the UK, small moan over 🙂 I may have made another small purchase 🙂 K04 turbo setup, I'll then get it mapped to around 320 - 350 brake
  3. oh yeah, and I bought another toy to play with But I wont say anymore about the Ford 🙂
  4. Cars had a few trips out now including the 350mile round trip to the Corrado 35 meet, it didn't miss a beat so I have some confidence it it now Then had a local classic car meet which seemed to have a couple of classics and a whole load of ST's 🤣 I took this after most had left followed by another local meet at the pub at the bottom of my road 🙂 Had to laugh at the photographers that walked straight past mine to take photos of a gaggle of Fiesta's then walked straight past the other way 🙂 Then finally another old forum meet

    Hi Mark, looks sweet and a good place to start
  8. It fits the centres of my BBS wheels meaning I can actually tighten them without worrying that I wont get them undone without damaging
  9. I had been written off but not logged because the fuel pump packed up, a pump off ebay got it running again, and the matt black wrap removed revealed good silver paint, its only done about 60k so he is hoping to sell it for about £3k, if it doesn't sell then he may break it
  10. Picked up this BBS centre cap tool today, A mate found it in the back of a TT he bought for £500 and gave it to me for helping him.
  11. Thanks for you kind comments, life goes on, I haven't been out to the car since it happened but I need to do something soon. I have today received a message to say the grill and rear badges I ordered in March are ready, so I paid for them and they should be on their way now. Thanks to Xavier at Renewart
  12. So in a way that all my best laid plans ever get shat on from a very great height, I was all booked to take the car to its first show of this year last Sunday, but on the Friday my wife was admitted into hospital, things got worse over the weekend resulting in her passing away late Sunday afternoon. Life is shit at the moment
  13. And another Pass with no advisories 🙂 May have to do a few more mile this year
  14. Ah, I've only worked on G60 and 16v, thought they were the same design just wider, every days a school day
  15. just a single circlip 😦 no wonder there was so play
  16. Gone back to my yooof and fitted the stereo and a another pic of the gear surround
  17. Ok, back on track, gearbox rebuilt. I found the replacement mech had some issues so I changed the broken parts on my original mech (broken by the courier) for those from the replacement, and now the car drives again, yay. So far, only a quick drive round the block so I could turn it round in the garage 🙂 Will fit the stereo back in over the weekend and give it a wash I went back to the standard gear surround with a DSG surround from a touran (I think) Re insured it through Adrian Flux @ 185 all mods declared, MOT will be Monday
  18. easy solution is to just change the number in the page address. glad you have made progress, watching on here and insta for updates
  19. Crasher is good, I have asked him questions before about other cars
  20. 🤬🤬🤬 I think I might burn it ......... After getting the seats in and the rest of the interior back in, I started it, all seemed good, I let it go up to temperature Then put it in gear, let the brake off and nothing, no movement at all, bought the revs up and still nothing. I don't know why yet but I did try using VCDS to calibrate the clutch and just got an error message so not holding up much hope for the replacement mech. The gearbox was working mechanically, I only took out the mechatronic to have it checked and that, it would seem, was a big mistake. 😞
  21. Front seats brackets welded in
  22. My final parts from Dreadnought customs have arrived, I already fitted the soundproofing and the bonnet catch now have these to fit And decided to buy the F20 DSG plate, make what you want for the F, Fast, F--ing etc but its a 2.0 DSG so a screw in the right place should make it look ok. (I'll probably regret it in a few weeks)
