Streetpack 17" Wheels

10 January 2014 - 07:06 PM

Hi all 

 

A few of questions if i may concerning the 17" streetpack wheels as i am thinking about getting some to replace the 16s on my 12 plate zs.

 

1 are they as bad at bending as i've been reading around the net?

 

2 are they a straight fit replacement?

 

3 colour? going on a micastone zs so silver or the dark ones that go on the metal edition?

 

some help much appreciated 

 

cheers phil


Wheelarch Liner Prob

29 December 2013 - 09:48 AM

HI all

Just wondering if anyone could give me an idea to fix my wheelarch issue?

 

The problem is if i hit a deepish puddle my car likes to pop the  bottom liner clip out which has already lost me one of the skirt endcaps on my zs.

 

I replaced the endcap a while ago with the addition of a self tapper which just about held it on this time.

 

The dealer gave me a couple of different clips but i don't think these will hold it either tbh.

 

I try to miss all the puddles i can but the recent weather and dark roads at 5am its not always possible.

 

Any suggestions as to what to do are welcome

 

Cheers Phil


Milltek Fitted

29 November 2013 - 07:16 PM

Finally had my Milltek catback fitted  to my mk7 zs today and i'm well chuffed .

It has a nice deep burble on tickover and progresses to a nice roar on higher revs.

 

I just went with the catback as i leave for work at 5am so didn't want a too noisy system and go waking the nieghbours :rolleyes:

 

If anyones toying with the idea of getting one of these i highly recommend it ,a lovely sporty sound without being ott and really looks the biz.i've not noticed any gains but i haven't really had a proper drive out yet,but i'm not too bothered as i went for looks more than anything else it now looks how it should of from the factory imo.

 

Also a stroke of luck as i had an annoying ding in one of my doors and there was a pdr guy at the garage.So i asked him to have a gander and he sorted it there and then for £30 cash.

 

Happy days :)  Phil

Side Skirt Clip

25 October 2013 - 06:45 PM

Hi 

I've had a 12 plate zs for 4 weeks and lost a bit already it's the front grey wheelarch clip that holds the side skirt  and arch liner in place.

I have a new one on order foc  for tomorrow morning and will be fitting myself as the dealer is too busy and i dont want to leave it until next week as it's all a bit flimsy without it.

The thing is i believe it is only held on by a plastic rivet which imo isn't enough as i think i may have lost when i hit a big puddle this morning .

I'm thinking of bonding it as well ,can anyone recommend a bonder or not a good idea?

 

cheers phil
