  1. Glad to have been of help 😜. Did you upgrade the bushes to poly or just use the OEM ones?
  2. Need to make sure it wouldn't fly out in a rollover of you haven't already, as this is when you're most likely to need to cut your seat belt
  3. I purchased a preprepared one with a buzzer from eBay but haven't installed it yet as it requires drilling into the plastic coolant tank. Not sure if that's a good idea.
  4. Top mounts, tie Rods and anti-sway bar bushes seem to be regular culprits too
  5. I'd be interested in knowing more about your fitting of the oil cooler. What type of sandwich plate did you use? Did you remove the OEM cooler? Hose routing, etc. Thanks.
  6. Awesome question. I've been wondering if the UK and US cruise control buttons are the same, as the button is under $20 in the US but considerably more expensive in the UK.
  7. De-wiper bungs - I've read are 23mm outside and 19mm inside. I've read elsewhere that Halfords have those sizes in a 3 pack. Never done it myself as I think the rear wiper is useful.
  8. I've just had to have an expansion tank replaced under warranty but otherwise the engine is (so far) performing fine (2013 build with 28k kms). Like any machine being pushed to relatively high limits, it's worth checking oil and coolant levels regularly (I check daily before I drive), as well as an at least monthly visual inspection all round (including underneath) for leaks.
  9. Thread bump - has anyone been able to activate the ESC switch in a Mk7.5?
  10. Yes the honeycomb grills fit. ST grill does not but there's ST lookalike grills on eBay and AliExpress.
  11. Make sure you use a high temperature paint. I did mine yesterday. Could only find a rattle can in the colour I wanted so sprayed it into the lid and brush painted it on. Ensure you clean the callipers thoroughly with wheel or brake cleaner and wire brush any rust away.
  12. And trialling some 2nd hand Porsche brake air deflectors. But of a bodgy job as I didn't have a long enough bolt.
  13. Also painted my callipers
  14. Finally had a chance to fit the Mountune intercooler and boost hoses
  15. Mine does (Mk 7.5). Think it's set on mileage
