When I split two-piece wheels, I always tap every bolt head before I try to remove them. The shock helps the bolt loosen from the locktite and corrosion

In Topic: Mk5 coil overs/drop links help please

It depends on the coilovers. FK (not sure about the cheapest ones) use shorter drop links as they have moved the bracket for the drop link lower down on the shocks compared to OEM ones.

In Topic: Coilovers for polo 6n estate?

The Polo estate is not a 6N, it is a 6KV, same as Seat Cordoba. 6N coilovers are not the same

I used the first and second generation 195/45-14 on 8-14, and they performed very good

I would say, get some better ones if you can afford it. I did look at lots of tyre tests when I looked for tyres for the Scirocco. I found that Hankook was rated top 3 by auto, motor unt sport in a test of 235/35-19. They are not much more expensive than Nankang, but does offer a lot more traction and shorter braking distance. In real lide, that could be the difference betwen sending the car too the body shop or not. With the amount of idiots on the road today, I would really like a tyre that stops the car or can steer clear from these idiots in case of an emergency...
