My pd130 has done 103k now and the suspension was feeling tired to say the least, and as I've decided to keep it I thought I'd better sort the suspension.
Had a bit of a mission fitting the fronts along with new wishbones, drop links & top mounts yesterday; I didnt manage to start it until...
I need help, I have a MY05 LCR, with the mods listed in my sig below, anytime I do logging I always see lots of CF’s, I have read a bit about them and basically they are correction factors and caused by the ECU retarded the timing for a few different reasons? that’s great, but I...
What a difference, this is a must mod. Car feels enjoyable to drive instead of an effort. If anyone is planning on fitting a quickshift kit I would advise buying a claw puller as it's hard to seperated the linkage from the gearbox.
Hi guys, I've been on here a while learning from you all and sticking my 10 pence in here and there. So i thought it was time i did a readers ride thread, good times eh :D

Alright then, I sold the Cordoba Cupra a few weeks back leaving me with the Golf 1 daily.
However I was missing the power of the Cupra so needed to find a replacement.
I had set my mind on a Jetta because of space reasons, and wanted it with a G60.
After quite a bit of searching I...

Bought on 68k last April, but didn't start driving until MOT & Tax ran out on my previous car (July), so it's now sitting on 71k
Some pics when I first bought it, after I'd given it a wash, clay, polish and...

As per the title really. Me and a friend fitted the forge TIP to my Cupra a few days back, and where as before it was peaking at 1.4 / 1.5 bar (its running a Revo stage 1 map) it now refuses to go past 0.9 bar and is noticeably slower / less torquey:(
All vac pipes seem ok and...
Made the journey down to JKM yesterday and had the WALK fitted, The difference is unbelievable, There is more steering feel you know exactly what the front tyres are doing, SO much more grip than before, going round a corner and stick your foot down and there isn't hardly any wheel spin, whereas...

* Seems to...
...and done a couple of power runs.

Car is an Ibiza Cupra TDI with a custom remap and a panel filter. 45k miles on the clock.
Never been rr'd but was presuming about 200bhp.
Now this should be taken with a huge pinch of salt but the gauge thinks the car has...
