    Looking to make the engine bay a bit more well colourful or just add a bit of character to it. Is it just a matter of painting the parts or can I order parts that a pre painted online and just do a like for like swap?

    Was thinking whether to add an induction kits but don’t see the point with it being stock

    I've never found the time. But you could remove the parts and send em off for hydro dipping.

    Decided to clean the interior, hasn’t been properly cleaned in at least 6 months. Started raining before I was finished but it was desperately in need...

    Once I done that I decided the outside could do with a wash too, should really be more on top of this.

    Dropped it off at the dealer to have a leak in the boot fixed for a second time in 2 months.
    If it comes back again I may just fill every inch with expanding foam.:banghead2

    So not a plug in setup like the KW DCC coilovers? You’ll need to get the delete kits.

    Correct, but after spending way to may hrs reading about coilovers these are better in every way compared to Bilstein/KW. Spec in everyday driving comfort

    What’s the price like? Have to admit I do like the ability to soften/firm the ride, so can’t see me going to anything other than the DCC.

    Didn't want to make a thread for this, but has anyone had any experience with Plasti dip on wheels?

    MrsMaypack collected her 1.5 TSI EVO 150bhp FR Black in the best colour - Desire Red . Makes my CUPRA of the same colour look well dirty as the FR is nice and showroom shiny.

    Finally had this thing ceramic coated. Was told as well that the guardx the dealer "applied" was non existent. Only trace was the sticker in the windscreen.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Next up will be tints for the front fogs and a ppf boot liner.

    Dealer Supagard etc is good stuff but it is never ever applied properly by trained professionals that care about what they are doing. It’s applied by people getting paid peanuts. That’s the dealership model for you. Ceramic coatings make such a difference to the finish and ease of cleaning as long as you look after the paint etc afterwards.
