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
I have hid's in my car running off depo angel eyes projector headlights and everytime I put full beam on the dipped beam turns off and I have to tunr the headlights on and off 3 or 4 times to get them to come back on. I had 8k bulbs in and the problem didn't happen, changed to 10k's and the problem happened and then bought 3k yellow hid's and no problem. it just seems to be the 10k bulbs that make this happen.
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!
So my new golf Victor (christened by my girlfriend) the GT Tdi has no exhaust pipes on show...i'm not impressed. Looking at adding twin pipes in full view, something like these are what i'm thinking: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/REAR-VALANCE-VW-GOLF-V-GTI-EDITION-30-with-1-exhaust-hole-for-GTI-exhaust-/221326458549?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item338815beb5 http://srs-tec.de/cars/images/product_images/popup_images/241_0.jpg or R32 style is pretty sick in my opinion: http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NDU1WDkwMA==/z/TU0AAOSwaNBUf0Ln/$_57.JPG Anyone have an idea of cost involved here?
Gave the car a half decent wash yesterday so thought I would get some photos up! Sorry that they are crappy iPhone photos. Its a 2006 mk5 Sport and is fully Caractere kitted, which isn't to everyones taste il even admit somedays I love how it looks and somedays i'm not fussed on it! Plans are new wheels a decent set of coilovers maybe change the skirts to GTI skirts a RCD 510 or similar is something i'm considering also
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.
