Nice job on the tips - I bet it was satisfying popping those back on.

Thanks mate, it was so much easier with the tips coming off, hopefully should be easy to clean now they're sealed up

So made the trip to tps today to pick up a number of different parts.

The car was serviced at the end of June at VW as its still under manufactures warranty, they performed an oil service and pollen filter change. Having looked at the pollen filter i'm not sure it was changed so popped a new one in today for peace of mind.

New filter



To get to the filter you have to open the glovebox, theres two buttons at the top that you push inwards and the glovebox releases down.





















Clicked back into place



The next part I bought was mentioned earlier in this thread by another member It was already in the plan for the car, was just waiting to go to tps when I needed a few bits to pick one up.

Before







Small stud screwed in with 10mm spanner





Cover fitted



With the engine cover on







I also picked up a set of rear discs and pads. Before I get these fitted I think I will paint the hubs with Hammerite smooth to stop the dreaded rust happening again.















These will get fitted on the 28th September as well as;



Clubsport discs (lighter discs 1kg each side plus aluminium bells so will not rust)
Ferodo ds2500 pads
Racingline braided hoses all round
Brake fluid change (uprated fluid)
And an MOT

Had a couple of pictures sent to me yesterday of the wheels, the lad who is doing them for me works for BMW doing alloys and does his own work in his own time before and after work. They are being done in Ferric Grey.

Very nice updates there

I’d agree with painting the rear disc hubs - presume you’re going for a similar colour / finish to the fronts - which look the business by the way

I had my disc hubs powdercoated radially around the disc hub and the edges of the disc. Nearly a year on them and still looking great. A good VHT with an etch primer first will be fine too though. Nothing worse than rusty brake hubs.

Thank you, looking forward to getting them fitted

That sounds like a great idea to be fair

So I have managed to sort out my rear discs prior to their fitment on the 28th. Went a bit overkill and gave them 4 coats as I had a bit of spare time and was finishing the can of Hammerite off.

Rubbed down and then wiped with panel wipe



First coat







Second coat



Third coat







And then the final coat







An update on the wheels;









Lacquer going on









Tyres back on



Will get some more pictures when I put a sealant on, currently thinking of going for DLUX but got a week to decide. The wheels will then get fitted for the 28th when the MOT is and then come off again and will go on towards the end of October.

Last weekend I got round to test fitting one of the winter alloys;









Had a delivery









On Sunday I decided to fit the winter wheels for its MOT as the Golf will be in the garage until then anyway. I will then put the pretoria's back on until the weather drops.



















Really pleased how they turned out, better than I had imagined, I know some people won't like them but they're more for practicality but I like them

Some more MOT prep yesterday fitting new wipers, mine were ok but thought i'd change them.





MF's to protect the paint and glass













Will get some pictures of the brakes when I get them fitted on Friday.

Few more pictures with the winter alloys on



























My favourite one



Had my brakes fitted on Friday



Just need to clean the callipers, have got some new R decals to go on.



Blue pads instead of the ds2500's as they've had plenty of feedback about them rattling so we decided to go for these instead.















Rear's











Braided hoses



Pretoria's back on with wheel bolt covers







And finally the first of hopefully many Advisory free MOT's

Winter wheels really suit it! Had my first MOT too last month.
