    This fantastic F80 M3 Competition came in for a long term protection treatment. The car had only done 306 miles when it arrived, but it had been a pre-registered car sat on a dealership's forecourt for many months and picked up a good selection of swirls and little marks. The owner wanted the best possible result with long term protection, so the order of the detail: Full safe wash and decontamination Major Enhancement Detail (2 Stage machine polish) Wheels off package (ceramic coated inside and out, brake calipers coated) Ceramic Pro 9H - 3 layers Ceramic Pro Light Ceramic Pro Rain on all exterior glass Interior cleaned and protective products applied to all fabrics, leather and plastics.

    Thanks Dude Unfortunately the ruby red mk3 16v has starting issues and is a little too leggy for my (its on ebay now if anyone wants a look - NOTE - not my car!) but hopefully have sourced a dragon green 5dr with far less miles to collect this weekend. Hoping to get it for £500. MOT until next June and should make some money back breaking it up (leather, morettes, alloys, solid front wings etc)... Watch this space

    BULK UPDATE: Went and got some photo's with the Internets newest favourite Polo... (He needs to start a thread) Untitled by Lewis Deakin This is what i look like also. Known as a melt over this way. Untitled by Lewis Deakin Nothing new to report yet annoyingly, i literally can't do anything until i get paid... Two weeks and i will have things to do!!! GTI splitter is awaiting a bit of sanding and paint, i'll jump on that this weekend So, bits. Money was spent, things were collected. Untitled by Lewis Deakin Collected a complete GTI bootlid, that i've now stripped for what i needed, a spare GTI bumper, GTI HID's, carpets and a load of other little bits and bobs! I'll be putting all the bits on over the course of the month in preparation for Ultimate stance.. I've also put the Gotti's off my GTI onto this now too, i personally think they suit this more..... Untitled by Lewis Deakin So, i decided it was time to remove the horrible dated boat wheel that resided inside my Polo. by (Random bit of tape on dash is just keeping the resistor safe that stops the airbag light coming on) So seeing as JDO's off the road and won't need a Boss on it for a while, i've borrowed the Boss off that for now to use on my Polo until i can afford another one. Instead of my Mountney Steering wheel, i've gone with my Momo Team 300. Full on Mario kart hahaha, annoyingly my horn doesn't work now though? Which is odd because the setup is no different to that of my Lupo's, and they've both worked fine with an aftermarket wheel... Bloody VW's So while doing some work on JDO over the weekend, i found the time to do a few jobs on the Polo. Untitled by First important one was to make an attempt at sorting out these headlamps! They've actually came out dead well considering! Before: Untitled by After: Untitled by Have made a start on fitting the period decals i've had made too, nice and clean. Untitled by Untitled by

    This Saturday consisted of me fitting my refurbished and rebushed Subframe, Audi TT Anti Roll Bar, Poly Bushed Wishbones and 312mm brake set up with hibs etc. I was going to do the top mounts as well but they are still spot on so didnt bother. Here's some pictures, i hardly ever take pictures inbetween as i just like to get stuck in and my hands are to filthy to operate my phone haha. Old parts removed (Good job i changed the subframe really there was a slight rust hole on the top) IMG_20170923_135405 by Adam Jones, on Flickr 312's and everything on... IMG_20170923_161942 by Adam Jones, on Flickr They sit nicely behind the rims as well... IMG_20170923_173326 by Adam Jones, on Flickr Rust hole on wing was fixed with some Duct tape... IMG_20170923_173317 by Adam Jones, on Flickr Wound the front down a little bit more as well... IMG_20170923_173335 by Adam Jones, on Flickr IMG_20170923_173339 by Adam Jones, on Flickr Sitting nice now... IMG_20170923_191030 by Adam Jones, on Flickr Subframe sits approximately 2" off the gound... IMG_20170924_154836 by Adam Jones, on Flickr All ready for it's MOT this Friday it's also booked in for the tracking as well. Thanks, Jonezy

    I am generally only into VWs and always have been, but right there is my all time dream car. Loved that thing since I first clapped eyes on it. Even had a little remote controlled martini racing version when I was a nipper. That is a quality example, stunning work.

    Looking great! Although it's coming into Autumn, I used to love those crisp, cold days when the skies are clear and the sun is out to go for a blast! Car looks great in the sun, and the cold air means she would run perfectly! Hopefully they'll be plenty of those for you mate.

    I have just retextured all my bumpers and arches on the mk2 I am rebuilding. The best advice I can give is to sand back the texture areas to be completely smooth and then apply it. My bumpers were smoothed back by the bodyshop, but the arches were smoothed down like the below: And the finished look was like this: That was about 3 coats on the texture finish stuff.

    One of my all time favourite cars. Had a drive in one when I was 17. The grip and performance was incredible. Does it have the green alcantara interior?
