Seen this type of thread on many forums for many cars and thought it might be good to start it here. It could be anything from fitted new wheels to had it serviced or took it to a track day at...

I'll start - I ordered winter tyres for mine. Went with Nokian WRA3's in stock size as I ran these on my scirocco and found them to be excellent.

I attacked my car and ripped out the rear seats, interior door trims and boot trim to destroy the many rattles that plague the car, much of this is due to the silliness of having hard plastics touching metal, especially under the rear quarterlight windows...

I use self - adhesive Velco to cushion the contact areas...

It worked.

I now have a rattle-free car.

Detailing guru...- Keep it clean, folks! Now a powerful Sith Lord after lusting for power & being seduced by the Dark Side (PORSCHE! ). Still a GT86 fan though...

excellent start Deacon. starting with what you did FOR your car, rather than TO it.


i meanwhile gingerly walked past it with my bike on its rear wheel trying not to hit the car with the pedal which was about 2 inches away from it. hashtag tight garage (or however you do that)

With people like you I always wonder whether they'd have the nerve to be this obnoxious face to face - I think not - so whydon'tyou crawl back under the rock you came from and stop being such a dick.






Sorry to have this thread off topic already but I can't stand keyboard warriors!






ob1kxb - it's you!

Senna - are the door trims hard to get back on?

No buddy, but you have to be sure to make certain the clips are pushed well into the housings before you attempt to put it back, otherwise they can pop out & you start to lose them as they drop to the bottom (inside) the car...lots of swearing begins then !


I did this...can you tell?


I am just starting a new thread on this with photos, - have a look...

Yesterday I flashed a new ECUtek map onto it....

Today the other half gets to drive it to work as her exhaust is about fall off. Citroen couldn't get me a bolt for 2 days I thought they'd be prepared for parts falling off by now

Two days for a bolt is shocking!

Tell me about it, I was hoping for "Here you go sir, we carry plenty of these in stock." Instead I had Mr un-exciting who looked at me and said "Saturday". Bloody Saxo, came home on Wednesday blowing a good-un. One of the 2 bolts that holds the manifold to the exhaust has sheared off it's head. She can have the GT for the day as I don't trust the remaining one holding up on it's own. One day of worry for me is better than paying for replacing the whole exhaust on her car

Anyway, back on topic.....
