    Not much has changed recently with the car, I've been out of the county a lot so haven't had much chance to enjoy her.

    I did pop down to see Niki @ R Tech the other day who kindly patched in a hard-cut limiter for me......now I'm like a child......brap......bap......bap.....bap.....!!!! :whistle::clap:

    Niki has lowered the Rev limit in first and second gears so it's much easier to get the power down and off the mark......plus it sounds ace too!!! :thumbup:

    I need new discs and pads on the rear also worried about the dual mass. Dread to think about repair costs to get it done.

    How'd you sort the tailgate handle? Normally just blast mine with WD40, does the job.

    Remove the handle and take it apart completely. Clean all the parts, lubricate the metal pin and reassemble.

    Ah ok, sounds a bit more of a long term solution than mine haha.





    You've got a 1.9tdi right? Check the intercooler pipes, the clips on there went on mine causing a boost leak.

    What do you guys think to mud flaps on the mk2?

    Thinking of getting some for winter as my wheels spray a lot of crap up the car.

    Looking good that mate, the F/L is the only model that suits the front splitter IMO

    Nope

    Just sprayed lots of WD40 and worked it with a brush. Then left the tailgate open to allow it to sit and lubricate. Then stuffed a cloth in there to soak up the excess.

    Job's a good 'un.

    To be fair, taking it apart and cleaning will probably mean it works properly for longer. Depends on how much time you have I guess.
