    im not kidding when I said it was easy, Jack the car up take the wheel off, there were 7 or 8 screws to undo, take the mud protector off and push the grill clips while someone pulls from the front. Probably not as easy to do on your own, and there is a risk you might bust the clips on the grill since you can only get to three of them from the back. But once you get the corner off the others come off nice and easy.

    It’s the same, just the angle I took the photo at and shoddy camera quality on my phone

    Wonder if the R grills will be harder, as they were a tight fit when refitting them. BUt that may of been because the bumper off of the car is so flimsy.

    OK so my brother has challenged me for a race tomorrow. Rolling race obviously. He has a stage 2 VW Beetle 2012, tuned and downpipe. Based on the MK6 GTI with a K06 turbo, 200 hp stock. Tuner says around 300 hp and 460 nm based on previous dynos but not dynoed his car. DSG gearbox, 6 speed. He is about 200 kg lighter.

    What do you think? :)

    Edit: Mine is a Leon Cupra ST 4Drive with JB4 map 6 and MST full intake, should be around 360-370 hp.

    Probably the wrong place to ask this if you’re taking or doing it on a UK or Mexican road.

    If you’re doing it on track then the numbers suggest:

    Cupra 4drive ST 1557kg with 350hp =
    225hp per tonne.

    Going off of your figures on the beetle:

    Beetle 1357kg with 300hp =
    221hp per tonne.

    But as yours has more drag not only as weight but on the drivetrain as well, he may have the edge.

    Where he has you though is torque. This is going off of the official JB4 figures

    Cupra 4drive ST 1557kg with JB4 350-365Hp/460-490Nm =
    225-234hp per tonne.
    295-314Nm per tonne.

    Going off of your figures on the beetle:

    Beetle 1357kg with 300Hp/460Nm =
    221hp per tonne.
    339Nm per tonne.

    And if we go off the offical kerb weight not your figures:

    Beetle 1230kg with 300Hp/460Nm =
    243hp per tonne.
    374Nm per tonne

    But this is all assuming his tuners figures are accurate of course.

    @Damo H

    Just checked, weights are closer than I thought. His is a Beetle Convertible, official figures say 1530 kg with driver and fuel compared to 1614 kg in mine.

    Mine being 4wd it will not be as efficient as fwd once moving but since it is a DSG 7 the gear ratios will be beneficial compared to DSG 6 which he as, at least in the 60-120 mph range.

    Took the car out to get some photos after cleaning and putting the dogs on. The rest of my mods are due to turn up soon. Just waiting for some time to get the car to the body shop.

    Topped up the coolant tank with G13 plus Quantum Mixing Water, after spotting some fluid on driveway by driver's door.

    Hopefully just a bit of air in system, as I spent £700 having the coolant pump replaced last autumn (P2681 fault code) which left my car out of action for a week.

    Put the EZmods front overlays on which dont require a photo as most people know what they look like.
    Went to fit fan washers, easiest thing ever, tried them out and what a load of p*sh, I think I will actually order OEM instead of far east knock offs :idea:.
    Quite glad im slender and had a little look underneath for the Dog mount to see what version I need and safe to say it had been ordered.
