  1. https://carthing.spotify.com/ Hopefully this comes to the UK with a similar discount (total $6.99 for those in the US right now) This is a great thing if you wish to keep an OE headunit which has an aux-in.
  2. Looks great. I hate you. Bye!
  3. From here: http://www.oemepc.com/vw/part_single/catalog/vw/markt/RDW/modell/COR/year/1995/drive_standart/76/hg_ug/803/subcategory/135000/part_id/3691729/lang/e#sec_19 It could be this? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-VW-End-Cap-N90147001-/332287443621 or perhaps 19, but I can't find that anywhere
  4. Do you mean these? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Golf-MK3-32mm-Floor-Pan-Chassis-Bung-Plug-Grommet-8v-16v-GTI-VR6-Genuine-VW/151894194188?hash=item235d99780c:g:OacAAOSwXy1bxQMP
  5. Holy moly £550, one blue whale jumped in a puddle there
  6. Definitely a blog, then cross post it here when you have updates. Then you don't at the whim of someone archiving all the images during a forum version migration and not migrating the content across 🙂
  7. colour me interested mon ami
  8. Great idea, just need to find a bolloxed compressor haha
  9. Sorry I didn't see this before. I've done all the research and am in the middle of fitting a rotrex myself. The exact reason I chose rotrex was because there's no hacking. You don't need to tap the oil sump it has it's own rad with plumbing so is literally plug in. They say the bottom end can handle the boost so I'm not too worried about that, but it will make any current problems with your head and their associated bolts, and gaskets very obvious that there's problems around. Narrator: Culshaws engine is going to pop.
  10. Has anyone seen anything like this in the UK? It seems I need to strap one on to get my rotrex working, the belt I have is +air-con length, and I want to make sure it goes around all the pulleys correctly as intended. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/A-C-Compressor-Bypass-Pulley-Air-Conditioning-Bypass-Pulley-Boxed-Dorman-34214/264643163808?epid=75841589&hash=item3d9df636a0:g:9OgAAOSwwNtbfxJp
  11. I've got a spare, just wanted to avoid the faff of detaching the pulley and lining it up correct (it's on supercharger mount)
  12. Hi all, I put too much shoulder into my tensioner and didn't see it fouling a bolt and it cracked the case. Does it need replacing or is it only serving the arm of releasing the tension to the pulley? I don't want to put any tension onto the belt if it's going to rip the casing apart and put metal all down the pulleys
  13. How about 2nd into first while going about 5mph, mine gives a lovely clunk that the whole street can hear. I'm curious how it passed the MOT. My last place seemed to pass my golf with flying colours, yet this year a new garage gave me a screenplay of things to fix. Worried me a bit
  14. Saw an either blue or green c heading down brian clough way towards notts at 8:20 this morning
  15. around £130 after getting refund for caliper surcharge (£36 per side)
  16. I've just done this on my mk4, I needed both rear calipers and got them from eurocarparts. Replacements came as reconditioned VW ones. Pot luck got lucky I guess.
  17. This is how mine look, and a pic of the spare lead. Not tight except for the one that isn't needed. I measured them up against the old leads.
  18. coilpack they come with cables for both IIRC. I have a spare lead which I don’t need
  19. I got a set of mr-retro ones. They're good. Not 8mm though, 7mm so they will fit in the plastic guides. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RED-7MM-PERFORMANCE-IGNITION-LEADS-VR6-CORRADO-VR6-PASSAT-OBD1-QUALITY-HT-LEADS/121989319594?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  20. Where do everyone get their replacements from? I have a lovely rattle that I think may be chains. VW (tps) are closed for retail and even still they only have half the parts available. The other half are NLA.
  21. I've done this dance recently, I got one (and maybe the last, I can't remember) one from VW last year, and also picked up one which is still hanging in the garage in a blue bag, a Pagid one but it was much longer than the VW one.
  22. Looks great Is the windscreen going in last, or are you going for that, hair in the wind look?
  23. Resurrecting this bad boy. I found a thread where they are demonstrating the seal from vintage rubber. https://forums.mwerks.com/showthread.php?5616806-535853355A-Corrado-rubber-strip-rear-window-satin-black
