    Thanks, will get in touch with them
  2. 18" Monza II Referb

    After a few months of toying with the idea on getting a Golf R ive decided to keep the GTI! But wheels are in dire need of some attention (worm things - again, after having the whole set replaced), anyone know of someon so can referb these in and around the east midlands? would like to keep the original look rather than having them painted all over. Thanks
  3. Thanks for the reply, after reading about it seems doable, like you i'd go for something like the MDI... only concerns atm are the possibility that i'd have to get the CANBUS upgraded. need to find more info on that i reckon. also would like to be able to control the the unit from my MFSW, again more research to do! deffo going to do it tho! Cheers
  4. sounds promising! will check that out, thanks
  5. Hi there, looking for a bit of advice, i have a golf with an RCD300 atm the mo (i think), but I dont have anyway of using my ipod with it. Was thinking about buying one of these and replacing my 300 with it, it would also be a bonus that i would be able to control my ipod from the headunit (so i read). VW RCD 510 DAB | eBay Has anyone done this before? once swapped how will i then hook up my ipod to it, would i need to buy an extra lead or something? and is there anyway to get that lead to my armrest storage thing? Thanks
  6. [ QUOTE ] [/ QUOTE ] Hi there, on this pinout of the RCD300 does anyone know which is the remote wire for linking to the amp? I just want to be a 100% sure i can do this before ordering everything! Thanks Tunde
  7. As per my previous thread I have established that my headunit on my MK5 Golf does not have a pre-out / line out I could use to run an amp + sub. For me, changing the headunit is not really an option as I have a Phatbox MP3 player integrated with it, but I think I may have found a workaround and wanted to get your views on it... Basically I have been told I can disconnect a couple of speakers that are running from my existing headunit and run these wires to my amp via a line level converter, this will convert the amplified audio back into non amplified audio that can then be fed to the amp to run the sub and the speakers I disconnected. Would this work? Here is the kit im thinking of ordering, would this all work ok? Line Level Audio Converter: http://www.m-99.co.uk/Car_Audio/High_Low_Impedance_Adapters/high_low_impedance_adapters.html Subwoofer: http://thebassbin.co.uk/shop/product/products_id/3436.html 3 Channel Amp: http://thebassbin.co.uk/shop/product/products_id/3462.html Any feedback would be much appreciated!

  8. hmmm.... dont really want to be changing my headunit as I have a phatbox (mp3 player thing). Is there any device / adaptor on the market that I could use with the RCD300 to make some kind of additional output that can be linked to an amp for a sub? There prob isnt but thought i'd ask the question!
  9. Hi there, I am thinking of buying a sub + amp to improve the sound in my car but was just wondering if anyone knew whether the RCD300 had a spare output I could run to this additional amp? If not, does anyone know if the RCD500 does? Thanks Tunde
  10. Corroded Monza 18s....

    How do you guys clean your wheels? I initially jet wash mine, then sponge them and then rinse them off with the jet wash again, could this be the cause of all my wheels having to be replaced due to white marks appearing? Could jet washing cause any damage to the lacquer? I dont jet wash them at point blank range obviously, but close enough to remove any dirt / soap. Im getting them replaced this week but want to avoid having the white marks appear again!
  11. Corroded Monza 18s....

    I spotted some white spots / blobs on 2 of my wheels the other week and they are being replaced this week but on checking my other wheels they too appear to have the marks too so will be getting these replaced also. I didnt clean my wheels as much as I should have over the winter, maybe this has had an effect on them...
  12. Folding mirrors. Or not...

    I had a software update at the begining of december and aint had a problem since...
  13. Insurance Question

    thanks for the info. Is my insurance company likely to increase my current premium if I tell them that I have just found out that a claim was made when I was a named driver?
  14. Insurance Question

    [ QUOTE ] If you had the accident (whether on someone elses insurance or not), you have to declare it when you take out your insurance as far as I know. This is likely to increase your premium unfortunately. [/ QUOTE ] I had a feeling someone was going to say that...
  15. Insurance Question

    A couple of years ago I was a named driver on someones insurance, I had a slight bump with someone at a round about (touched bumpers). A few months later I was told by someone that came and inspected my car for damage that the person claiming didnt have a case and it would be throw out - that was the last I heard of it, until now... The person who's policy it was has just taken out some new insurance and been told that there was a claim made on his policy so his premium has been increased accordingly. Im on my own insurance now, does this mean I have had a claim made against me? How will this my insurance? Cant afford my premium going up, its sky high as it is! Thanks
