Hi, Thanks in advance. I am looking for some advice, I have a 2005 MK5 GTI golf and i sent her to my mechanic to have the timing chain changed. The engine is an AXX engine. My problem is when the timing chain cover was removed, there is 3 rings that are on the Cam shaft variator, ( excuse my spelling ), And one of these is broke in half, (It looks like the round piece of a key ring), So I went to my local VW garage and they told me you cant buy the rings separate and you need to buy the whole timing chain case for 780. This includes lots of parts I don't need. Does anyone know were i could get 1 of these rings. Or even a second hand case. Any help would be much appreciated. Ill can sent pics if anyone likes. Just ask. I am new to forum so cant add pics yet. Thanks Vinnie

Hi Guys, Thought it was about time i put something together for everyone to view! So its started off as a standard MK5 GTI Golf which i brought over from Scotland, it was standard when i got it and i soon put, KW v2 and 18" BBS CH on it with an intake and an Exhaust on it. Got 4 MPS on the wheels and it was a very fun car to drive, i never drove the car easy and enjoyed every mile of it. Recently i took the notice to sell and upgrade to a MK6 R or S3 but the Golf needed painting before i would consider selling it, it needed two new wings so i bought SRS TEC wings for it, there 25mm wider than standard. As i bought these i thought, i could go lower? So i sold the KW's and took ownership of a bargain set of H&R Ultralows, then i thought, sure why dont i just buy bigger wheels to fill out the car more and look really low, like Kyle Jackson low. Anyway i done a deal for a set of 19" 8.5 BBS ABT wheels, these needed some work to fit and i got 4mm shaved off all the wheels to increase the ET and pull them in, worked a treat! So after trailing wheels etc i thought, the brakes look tiny, i wasn't going to upgrade until Summer but i bid a guy silly money for calipers and he took it, silly cheap, Kyle got me basically a new set of R8 discs to match. The brackets which came with the calipers where for AP racing 2 piece disc of ML350mm discs with the R8 disc having a different offset of 4mm Kyle advised me to machine 4mm from the bracket to marry the brake kit together! Worked a treat! Quick refurbishment and new stickers and they looked like new! So to complete the new look i de-cluttered the bay by relocating the battery, washer bottle neck and carbon canister, tidied up a few wires and made up a new intake. I added black coolant and washer bottle caps, I will in time change the oil cap to an R8 one. I also added edition 30 front and rear bumper parts, there REP parts but fit and look like genuine ones. The car is currently away for paint before Dubshed, everything is being painted apart from the roof. Grill is being smoothed and painted gloss black. Ill update when i get it back. Future Plans, - Exhaust Downpipe, (awaiting delivery) - Rear suspension freshen up, I replaced every suspension component along with bearings on the front and feels great to drive so i will do the same to the rear. - K04 Turbo, give Kyle silly money when he upgrades! - 6 Pots for the front and move 4's to rear and get handbrake caliper. - Possibly remove more from Bay. Or sell everything and buy a house. Thanks for looking guys!
Ive had my polo for around two years now, I brought it over from England after deciding it was what I wanted but not being able to find one for sale in Northern Ireland. It stayed pretty much how it was with only minor changes and tidying up a few things along the way. Dubshed 2013 (wheels borrowed from Paul) I had always wanted to do more with the car but never did anything about it until recently, I got a set of BBS RS 070's 15x7 et16 in exchange for my set of BBS E30'S which I set about refurbing. fitted them to see how they would sit split them, shot blasted the centres and sent the dishes to get polished, ordered half height caps and red and gold badges. then tested out a colour on the centres that I'm more than happy with so just need to get them painted and order bolts for them whilst this was happening I also set about getting the car ready for paint, I had always felt that the car needed painted properly as long as I've had it. stripping marking dents, scratches and silicon marks keying the whole car roughly then its onto the stage that I'm still at, filling dents and sanding. hope to have the car ready for Dubshed this year and ill try to keep this up to date to let you all see how we are getting on..
Hey there folks. Sorry if this has been covered or seems like newbie stuff ( I am) but I have myself a 2000 golf gti turbo and was wondering if you guys had any advice on modifications that are worth carrying out. I have had the car for a year but due to new houses and that it hasn't got much of my time. I've done things like New water pump and belt and general engine up keep and servicing but was looking to push the boat out a bit and start giving the car a bit more attention. I'm not a mechanic and to be honest will probably get the work done as I don't want to wreck the thing. Like I've said sorry for a "newbie" post but all comments welcome. Cheers. On a side note it's used as a daily at present but hopefully this is going to change soon.
Was due an upgrade in cars so thought I'd treat myself to this 1.9tdi sport. Had a caractere front bumper and grill, and an r32 year bumper with exhausts. Not sure on side skirts. Lowered on coilovers Further plans will be updated during the weekend when the car comes back from paint with new wheels Got myself a r32 lower valance Then got myself a HID kit Then a mate had these wheels for sale so I thought I'd treat myself.
