Not much to report on the Golf in the past couple of months!

Enabled the inner lights to become brake lights via vcds, they illuminate as rear lights as standard but only the outer and upper light illuminate when braking. Just a simple change on vcds and it enables the inner ones too.

Below is a video if you click on it, not sure how to embed it on here.

AVHL2944 by jamie kirk, on Flickr

Gave the car a winter protection back in November. A few before;























Methods used;

Wheels cleaned with meguairs gold class (previously sealed with carpro flux) Tyres scrubbed with Britemax Grime out
Pre wash with Koch Chemie green star
Rinsed
Washed via 2 bucket method with Britemax pure max shampoo and carpro mitt
Rinsed
Bilt hamber korrosol
Rinsed
Auto finesse oblitarate
Rinsed
Clayed with Bilt hamber soft and shampoo
Washed and rinsed
Dried with auto finesse drying towel
Paint prepped with Swissvax cleaner fluid regular
Waxed with Swissvax shield
Glass cleaned with Gyeon glass and sealed with Anglewax H2GO
Tyres dressed with Zaino z16 (my favourite tyre dressing)

No pictures from the wash stage just a couple from the korossol











Car bought inside











After Waxing























After this the weather picked up so put my Pretoria's back on, these will be getting 4 new tyres and refurbed in spring so dependant on the weather might just keep these on fingers crossed.



Had a bulb out warning come up on the dashboard, was one of my cornering lights so 5 minutes on eBay and a set was ordered. A perfect opportunity to upgrade!

Before (bulb was out on the left headlight)



After





A big and noticeable improvement at night when turning! Similar colour to the xenons too so really happy with these.

Finally someone posted on the owners forum recommending some rubber mats that they had bought off eBay. So at £30 I thought i'd give them a go.













Really happy with these as they are fitted using the existing fittings. They also go up the sides so nothing goes down the sides or under the carpet making them really easy to clean and keeping the original carpet clean. Another thing I really like about them is that they cover the footrest and also go under the pedals without noticing them when driving.



Another clean and tucked away
