Its enough friction to make reversing harder, im sure its not the brake shields as ive manually pried them away from the disc a couple of times on the roadside haha

Just the very edge of the inside left wheel was touching the coilover thread but only reversing? Weird. Probably need a proper alignment!

No fuss as i had some spare spacers to put on.
Itll be camber (if theres any adjustment on them) or wheel offset.

*Worth getting it checked sooner than later. It could wreck your tyres.













*Yeh, i know i like spending other people's money aswell as my own lol

My car has needed an alignment for soooo long but i keep having to go back in and take things off etc lol . Im pretty certain just by eyeballing it the subframe needs adjusting, i believe on this AUQ platform i have no camber adjustment at all. But on the back of that i read. very cool breakdown on the mk4 of how being as low as i am introduces positive camber on hard cornering . Its not a track car so im probably not going to raise it up, but i will get some of these:

If you go for theses have a look a cb autos. You can go for the 30mm bushes then get the insert so they then fit your arms and you have even less Bush movement. Pop to my yard 1 evening if you want mate I have some in a set up you can have a look at

The more I look into boost gauges the more of a ball ache it seems to be on a diesel. I'm reading that the best place to plumb it in is just below the elbow boost pipe that connects to the EGR and that you have to cut a thread in the plastic. I'm not sure I trust a thread I've cut into plastic with that much pressure.

Any other TDI people running boost gauges who can advise?

On top of that, what's the best a-pillar pod.that actually fits?
