Do Not Sell My Personal Information


ste's mk7 zetec s tdci


Recommended Posts

Bought this little diesel after being fed up of my Octavia vrs breaking every other week. Absolutely made up so far over double the mpg I was getting and the bargain tax was a nice bonus.

It's a 61 with 49k Fsh and very good condition all round, the power is a massive come down but I'm getting used to it now.

So from this..

To this, after I'd cleaned it closer to my standards, gave it a quick hand polish with 3m finesse and a coat of Poorboys natty wax for now..

Changed the horrible yellow sidelights to some 'cob' bulbs.

HID Kit with bulb holders, more cob bulbs for number plate lights and wind deflectors all ordered. Plate will go on as soon as I receive the log book.

Bought this so my wife can learn to drive too so won't be going mad with it but plans so far are as follows:
-HID - done
-wind deflectors - done
-private plate on
-upgrade all bulbs - halfway there
-windows tinted
-mountune short shifter
-35mm springs
-17" wheels

That's just the planned list for now, not really sure still finding out the mods for these at the minute, hopefully will have the mounting shifter bought this month though.

Had a play with the snow foam, very impressed with it.

Used Poorboys qd+ after the wash but found it to be very greasy, so went over it with demon shine, gives a far better finish for a quarter of the price. Nice beading this morning too.

Just got them off eBay mate.

I've looked on eBay. I just don't want to purchase a crap brand. I know it's usually a debate but hAve you ever had trouble with the law MOT using HID?

They all probably come from the same production line anyway as I've had 10+ sets over the years and their pretty much identical, never had any fail mot and never questioned. So long as they are in a projector headlight that is correctly aligned their is no issue.

 

I can get you the item number of what I ordered if you like?
