Re: Rob’s Blue 1.4 Tdi 3 cly 6C polo tweeks

Some nice additions there! Just a warning about the rear spoiler as you had said you were trying not to affect the insurance much-when I was thinking of putting one on mine, they wanted an extra £100 on the premium just for that and I have 30 years driving experience, so I would imagine it could be ...

Re: polo gti 2015 headlamps

Yes, Vag.com VCDS you could do it with. I have seen a pair of genuine LED 2nd hand headlights for £500/550 a few times now if you keep your eye out on Ebay and FB marketplace. Search by the part numbers as well as the name

Re: Big brake upgrade 6r GTI

the design of the stock ones don't overlap the edge of the disc so just left the stock ones in place Interesting. Do you mean there was enough space around the 312 discs on the backing plates for the 323 to fit in the backing plate recess (like the 323 and 334 use the same backing plates), or do yo...

Re: Polo 6R Brake Upgrade

Perhaps you can have a look at the Audi TT 8N? Yes, that was one of the possibles, also the Mk1 Seat Leon Cupra R and Mk 4 Golf R32. When people have upgraded to larger brakes, they hardly ever seem to mention the backing plates. After looking into it more it seems the backing plates for the 323 an...

Re: Big brake upgrade 6r GTI

I'm running seat leon cupra R(mk1) brakes on my 6c gti. Both front and rear. They are 4 pot brembo calipers with 323mm discs front and 256mm vented rear discs. I also installed ebc yellowstuff pads all round. They are bolt on upgrade just need a set of hoses made up for the front. I'm looking to be...

Re: Polo 6R Brake Upgrade

Say if I was to use larger front Brembo callipers with 323 or 334 discs, would there be any VAG backing plates that would fit? Would the backing plates from the VAG cars that have the 323 or 334 discs fit? Or could they be quite different?

Re: Has anyone ordered from Kunset before?

I have sent more emails and still no repsonse at all! :roll: I have also phoned the bank and they seem to think that they can get the money back. :) :!: So in short, do not ever order anything from them unless you want hassle, no response or customer service and like receiving something totally diff...

Re: Has anyone ordered from Kunset before?

I have now sent further emails in German and English by email and on the website. I have send messages on the ebay account in German and English. I would have though they would double check the order if it says for 3 different cars just to be sure as I would have though most people order them for on...

Re: Has anyone ordered from Kunset before?

So, let me update. As you know, I sent a couple of emails asking if my payment had been received to which I had no reply. This is what I ordered: BABB02D3-30DE-42B1-9A2E-91C8A0CB92C5.png On June 4th, he sent the list of what I had ordered, but it was incorrect. See attached photo. CC4287A9-1CF9-4CA4...

Re: 6R rear badge/camera

Ok Tim, I think the badges (Golf MK7 vs MK6) are not interchangeable. I'm not sure. 5K0853630B ... MK6 5G0853617A ... MK7 Maybe on AliExpress there is something interesting for the MK6 RVC ... I mean the shiny black background. It's actually the shiny black background and the blue edging that I lik...

Re: Bilstein B14 coilovers on 6R Gti

I have the B14's on my WRC. They are quite stiff, so on bad roads they are a quite annoying. On smooth roads the handling is great though. For me they work for daily driver but then again, I'm used to a stiff ride since my old car was a Golf GTI mk3, lowered on cheap stiff coilovers. And the factor...

Should be OK.

The rear calipers of a Mk4 R32 will fit, yes, but the caliper carriers won't. You need FWD rear callipers, 4WD will not work.
Ah yes-I forgot the R32 was 4WD!

Re: Polo 6R Brake Upgrade

I wonder if MK4 Golf R32 rear calipers would fit? I was looking at the Brembo website and for some reason it doesn't list 310/312 being availabale in the Max style discs. But there is a Brembo Max disc in 310/312 here: https://www.autodoc.co.uk/brembo/1657273 which has the same stud pattern, same th...

Does anyone know how much headlight washer piping is needed?

I will be adding headlamp washers to my Blue GT, as I have xenon's to fit, but annoyingly both pipes -7P6955964B £5.20 for 5M and 1J0955964F £12.61 for 5M, I can only order 5 lots of 5M of each! Somehow, I don't think I need 25M of each and don't really want to pay that cost when I only need a small...
