The previous owner did it. I'm not sure if he's rocking around on here but I know he's on plenty of the vag forums. WALK (Whiteline AntiLift Kit). I'm not sure what console bushes the r uses, but it's basically a poly bush in an anodised alluminium body that changes the caster on the front axle, changes the handling characteristics for the better. Something I may also look in to along with the white line track-rod ends, which I brought for the mk5 but never got round to fitting due to selling up.

345mm front disks and alloy calipers as appose to 312mm steel calipers. For the money it's a very simple and effective braking upgrade for little more than a new set of 312 pads and disks.

Another slight mod, I've always hated the blue OE coolant and screen wash caps. So, they've been changed to the following:

I know no one will ever see it but it certainly sorts out the engine bay. Excuse the shocking iPhone photo.

I'll also hopefully be cracking the Autotech rear ARB on tomorrow.

Banter Claus brought me a late Christmas pressent today:

Hopefully I'll get it fitted by the weekend.

I've also tried to tackle the shocking rear visibility at night by replacing the OE bulbs with a set of CREE LED bulbs. I'll try and get a picture later but the new offer a fantastic level of performance.

Small update. Had the WALK fitted this morning. First impressions are exactly as they were in the Golf, much improved steering feel and improved traction. It no longer spins up in 3rd in the wet :)

Hopefully I'll get round to sorting a new exhaust system in the next few months along with some Michelin Pilot Super Sports :dance:

I'm just waiting for the Costco offer to crop up again. It's amazing how many people disregard putting decent rubber on a car, but will happily spend >1K on coilovers :crazy:
