  1. Try Gavin at Blackline Performance in Lisburn. He provides Celtic Tuning remaps and you will struggle to find someone more knowledgeable

  3. VW Motorsport withdraws form WRC 2017

    Maybe this is the best chance for 13 years that someone called Sebastian won't win the championship. Hopefully Kris Meeke can be a contender in the new citroen
  4. Another Red Octavia

    Being no stranger to Skoda ownership, it didn't surprise many when I arrived home from England with vRS number 4 to replace my Fabia. Here's the previous Skoda The Fabia was a great wee car but I just couldn't get used to the size. Something bigger was needed so the hunt was on for a newer Octavia. Then this popped up on eBay. It was petrol so after serious thought (and mainly getting talked into it by Gobsheene and veedubnoodle) I hopped on the plane and brought it home. Now, I was 99% sure I was getting an octavia so a few months earlier when a set of mk3 vrs seats showed up on eBay for fair money, I snapped them up so it wasn't long before they went in with a bit of soldering and fettling. The only bit that couldn't be fettled to fit was the rear lower base so I will be getting the original base trimmed to match. The next thing on the list was suspension. After having an A4 avant on air I wanted to return to that so after a chat with Gavin at DesignRMC I opted for an Airlift 3P system with an OEM / discreet style install. As usual, he didn't disappoint The next thing on the list was to get rid of the wheels which I am not a fan of at all Had these lying about so test fitted a couple and they fitted nicely. They are 20" Audi Q5 wheels. So sent them of for a chemical strip and a respray. When they came back, they were looking a lot smarter Edition38 was getting very close but managed to squeeze in getting the grill colour coded and the car detailed by Chris at Genuine Detailing before we set of on the 700 mile round trip. (Apologies for the long post)
  5. Another Red Octavia

    I heard he was a decent guy lol
  6. Octavia VRS Mk1

    Looks in lovely order. Black carpets are a nice cheap upgrade when you finally get bored of trying to keep the light grey clean lol. They are a lovely car and still under appreciated in my opinion.
  7. Mk2 GTI 8V-VR6 turbo build

    I will be disappointed if you didn't get a matching jacket and hat lol They look awesome.
  8. Another Red Octavia

    I was 100% sure I wanted diesel but sure these things happen lol
  9. Another Red Octavia

    Cheers Jim. Always seem to end up with a red one. I hear they come in other colours lol

  12. Fatmans' Other MK1 Golf

  13. Well Lads and Ladys

    Welcome along. If it's a small bumper, I have a nice set of 14" Lotus wheels here
  14. 80 grit seems a bit extreme may as well rub it with a brick lol
  15. Formula 1

    I'd religiously watch the btcc. If I so happen to be watching TV and the f1 is on, I will watch it but I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it. cant wait to see what Turkington and Plato can do in the Levorgs this year
  16. Thinking of getting mk5 Gti...

    I know my Octavia vRS which was around 230bhp ran a 15.1 at Bishopscourt which was only 0.054 seconds slower than my mates A3 TFSI around 250bhp. If it was me, I would have a look at an old shape Audi S3 225bhp which has a 1.8T 20v
  17. Project Breadvan

    Good to see another breadie getting love, they are getting scarce. I have a nice set of 14" Lotus wheels in the shed here doing nothing if I could tempt you
  18. GTINI Halloween Meet - 28th October

    I'll be there in a Japanese car. Deal with it lol
  19. Kids Karting

    Most places have a minimum height requirement. Give Nutts Corner Circuit a try
  20. 2.0T v 2.0TDi ?

    If I was doing 6k a year I would pick the petrol version. Also, for the price of a mk2 tdi, I recon a mk2 facelift petrol would be around the same money which are a lot nicer in my opinion.
  21. Dubshed prep how's it going!!?

    I wanted to have the engine conversion done in the mk2, but getting the loom is proving difficult. Probably change a few cosmetic things for the meantime until I get something sorted.
  22. mark two golf grills how do you wear your

    Westmoreland grills are my personal favourite. Although, more realistically, I prefer a single lamp grill
