Good News... New Wishbones Top-mounts front and rear and KW-1's are ON! (not that you'll notice as i've only dropped it another 10-15mm thanks to the Killer speed humps on our road)

Bad news... VAG idin't supply bearings with the new Topmounts, and managed to snap BOTH ARB bushes removing the old Wishbones, BIG BIG Thanks to Bazza for running me about to get the spares...

More Bad news, despite Caddy-Andy's best efforts, the water leak from the head-flange has turned into Niagra, empites the header tank in 10 minutes.. so I need to find a mobile mechanic to get that sorted as I have a flat-out week at work and can'ttake time out to fix the Damn thing in time for GTi-Fest... so another 2 mile round trip walk to the nearest VAG dealer here in London City this week to get a new Flange and seal Sad

Don't much feel like taking pics ATM mate Sad

Like I said doesn't look much different as I've had to keep it close to where it was thanks to the Mt. Killamanjaro speed humps on our road (two of which are brick)... any lower and I'd be replacing the splitter every couple weeks!

They were Mr Stawberry Blonde's....

The colour combo's growing on me TBH... but may go to silver...Need to have a chat to Andrew about colours he can do... chrome would ROCK!

I am not a Whore, I still only have 2 sets of wheels.. LM's left the pod under a Grey Mk2! Almost ripping the plastic arches off! Laughing

Looking very sweet and fresh.
My opinions is that it could be 1cm higher at the back.

Paint looks awesome and those wheels are very bold but lovely.

You are prob right. My eye looks at the wheel shape and matches that to the wheel arch.
I am still trying to balance mine, I might speak to you J about your services on Thursday.

Back to negative stance discussions... yeah letting the coils and new top mounts settle before finalising the ride. Can't go down at the front unless I remove the splitter! We have 2 seriously huge brick speed-humps in our road and it kisses them now...

So maybe pop the back up 5-10mm to even it out, but its sat dead level, just the whole rear lip's lower than the front thang again.

James if you are popping up to see Andrew (and Voodoo-hint!) can you see if you can get a chrome "sampler" from him for me to look at on Thursday?
