  2. The MkV GTI Tyre thread

    I have been running Michelin PS2s all round for about 8 weeks now (on 18" Monzas). They are a fantastic tyre and I would highly reccomend them !

  6. Oh bugger....

    I had a close encounter with a Pheasant this morning at a fair lick of speed . I ended up scooping said bird out from behind the honeycomb (in front of the radiator). The honeycomb is fubared and needs replacing - it looks like I have broken a couple of clips that hold the rest of the grille etc on. Any ideas on cost of: 1. The honeycomb sections below the number plate. 2. The whole front grille ? Cheers !
  7. If you were not happy with the deal, why give them a deposit? I am sure they did not hold a gun to your head and force you to sign the order. Their sales tactics sound very poor and unprofessional though !
  8. Clio R27

    [ QUOTE ] I'll be testing a F1 on Thursday morning (since there's no Cup testers). Renault Enfield suggested (yesterday) that the Cup would have options for duel lights, cornering lights and Xenons. What do they know I'll get further confirmation on Thursday and post back what they say [/ QUOTE ] I would love to hear what they say - believe me those options are not available on the Cup. There are still some R27s out there though
  9. Clio R27

    Xenons not available on the Cup. It is not a limited run...
  10. GTi in the Snow?

    [ QUOTE ] [ QUOTE ] I took my GTI to Les Menuires (French Alps) last year. I read lots of opinions before going ahead and driving - but I had absolutely no issues. I bought a set of snow chains and also a set of SnowSocks. The intention was to put the chains on the front and the socks on the rear if the snow was bad. BTW - I have 18" alloys. The chains I have DO NOT choice the rim !! [/ QUOTE ] Lost me a bit there Carl.. You mean the chain doesn't come anywhere near the alloy itself ? What make of snow chain do you have for the front ? [/ QUOTE ] Sorry, just reread my post - I meant to say touch not choice. The chains are Klack and Go

  13. Cost of Service

    My GTI goes in for its 1st service tomorrow at 15,000 miles (its on Long-life schedule) - what sort of price should I be expecting to pay !
  14. White GTi's

    I am really glad I bought a White one. The colour just makes the car stand out so much more. Parked next to MK2 GTI in White last night
  15. Need advice on new GTI please

    Done just over 13K miles in ours. No problems at all with the DSG. White is the only colour to go for. I would add Recaros to your options !
