    Just wondering if anyone knows of any good companies up north near cumbria or around North England that can supply and fit vwr lowering springs and a forge blow off valve?

    Don’t think theres any garages that can offer this service around me,

    cheers.

    How north of England are we talking?

    Progressive Parts are a forum sponsor and are based on Manchester :) hugely recommend them and they are certainly worth the travel.

    Hi mate im based in the Lake District, don’t think theres anywhere in Cumbria that does car mods as far as im aware. Manchester is a trek but like you say would be worth it for the work carried out properly.

    There must be somewhere further up North where people go for car mods, i dont know anyone personally capable of carrying out work either

    Hmm I wouldn’t know of any sorry.

    I’m based near Preston but my car has always gone to Progressive Parts, even before they were a forum sponsor. They are a great bunch of guys.

    Is it just the springs and forge BOV you want? What made you want the forge? Have you looked at the GFB DVX?

    I think Awesome GTI are like 6 miles away from ProgressiveParts :) either way, I hope you get sorted.

    The guys in Preston (ADS) - I know of a few people who have used them. No major issues with them as far as I’m aware. They’re significantly closer to you so saves you an additional 30-40 miles into Manchester.

    I'm Lake District (just outside) based as well and i've seen @paddy6789's current Cupra R and his previous Cupra in the flesh and can confirm that the work he has had done on both cars is well worth a trip to Progressive Parts in Manchester.

    You're right in the fact that there is nowhere really within Cumbria that can do the work you need, no VAG specialists really.

    Says theyre a forge dealer too on the website, couldnt see anything about them on the forge website though but i think its useless how they dont put their dealers list onto a map.

    I dont think ive been googling the right keywords for underwoods to come up but ive looked into them and they seem like a top company. If theyre a revo dealer and can do full engine and drift car builds im sure i can trust them to fit me a bov, springs and possibly an exhaust.

    I’ll give them a call, im based in West Cumbria mate so theyre certainly closer than progressive or awesome. Be easier to go back to if i have any issues too i suppose. thanks
