    not sure chap, brought sales link from GirvGTi at JAE. Any lowering springs will be fine however make sure there for the ph2 GTi, the ph1 are a tad different.

    I think if i do ever go with lowering springs I will get shocks to match.

    I put lowering springs on the old 'mera and it was horrendous for bottoming out etc!

    Possibly. I did change the rear shocks before i sold it, but i took the lowering springs off too.

    Yeah Ross as already offered. But i would need springs too!

    Yeah, you guessed it, more cleaning pictures!

    Had the opportunity to use this unit after cleaning another car. And seeing as I'm attending a classic car show tomorrow I took full advantage.

    I had machined this pug and waxed it and all the rest.

    Then wiped my car down as I had already washed it on Wednesday I masked it up.

    Then after loads of different combinations, which I might go into more depth with polishes. And waxed with DJ Purple Haze Pro

    Oh and if you can't tell I forgot my camera.

    Might go into more detail the morn as I'm on my phone. And It's been a mare to put the Pics in.

    No, no 50/50's to be honest i don't think there would be much difference. The polishes I have at the moment have very little cut in them so aren't touching the deeper scratches. Just giving it nice gloss. Next on the list is more pads and polishes now I'm more confident. Then I can tackle the RDS etc.

    It's hard to tell in the pics, can't believe how bad they are, I was pretty cold though so it's hard to keep the phone still. But it scrubs up ok, far to many stone chips.

    As above far to many stone chip but was speaking to a vehicle wrapper at the weekend, he says they will show up on a black wrap but not a carbon fibre one. It's always an alternative to painting. But it turns out that the wrap cost £68 a metre and I would need 4 to do the bonnet and roof. So it's not actually any cheaper to get it wrapped!!

    Yeah I think so too, :lol:. Both cars were looking good. We never even bothered wiping them down when we got there either. To busy trying to park everyone elses cars!!
