    My R is jinxed

    My vehicle is 13 months old but it already have had new front springs and struts, a new fuel pump and the latest, a new DSG gearbox - all replaced under warranty. In addition, 2 guys have driven into me albeit light damage only. It must be the worst jinxed MkV. I'm seriously thinking of...

    OEM Open Air Vents - Group Buy!!

    Why is it not fully open rather than a squared out area? Would look neater with the rest of the open grill.

    Bleak Christmas

    I put my car in reverse in the garage but noticed boot was not closed tight. Stepped out to close boot and the car started to roll back. Found myself quickly pinned in the diminishing space between my car, my car door and my missus' other golf - we don't park parallel in the garage...

    Removing existing fob badge - to avoid damage to the plastic, pry at 9 o'clock. Zero glue at underlying steel/screw head causes the badge to pop up easily. Covering old ground... thanks to Ian. I used the dark chrome. Original v OSIR

It has been frustrating cos' I have to wait for the high-pitched humming before I could bring the car in for the technicians to listen to same. CCC replaced my main pump last Thursday but the humming came back on...

    Modding front of R32?

    I know what you mean, less like the Jetta and Passat too and more like a Golf. This is what I have done with Avery 900 signage paper (thanks to Alex our blackout king), blade and hairdryer. Dirt cheap and effective for now without replacing the whole front. Took me about an hour.

    BackSeat Rattles... of the wrong kind

    I thought I should fix the loud backseat rattles which have been annoying me for the last 4 months. Having searched the forums, the plausible root cause was the seatbelt retainer but mine was more metal on metal and most frequent when I'm alone. Here's what I have done and it has completely...

    Your ride before the MK5

    Sorry, BMW photo only. My photos are somewhere in my CDs. Great car, fit and quality, smooth as, RWD! etc. 335i or R32, I couldn't resist the V6, sound, gusto and $value of the32 when I was supposed to be test-driving a GTi for my wife. So, I'm now a MkV owner who misses the kidneys.

    Recommendations for Service Centres - Sydney

    Missus and I bought our vehicles from Denlo and have been asked to return for service at James Ruse Drive. Missus had her first service there and was reasonably satisfied. That said, they cleaned the car and blackened the tyres contrary to her instructions not to. Mine is due soon but I...

    How do you gun it in DSG?

    Driving in D6 in DSG and you want to gun it, how do you do it? 1. Floor it in D6? 2. Left flappy paddle 3 times quickly to D3? 3. Pull back gear shift to 'S' mode, automatically kicking it back to S3? :iono:
