R32 Service Time

R32 Service Time
So the R32 has made it home and we want the engine serviced. So like I mentioned in the previous blog post, the cars recent service history was not up to my standard. The car felt a little sloppy and felt like it had a slight misfire. A trip to our local VW Parts shop resulted in us buying plugs, oil, oil filter, pollen filter as well as a K&N panel filter. Adam, AKA Paddy, our mad mechanic got to work servicing the car. I opted for the easy job of fitting the K&N Air Filter. We quickly realised that this service was overdue. The plugs had seen better days and the oil was filthy. The car felt so much... Read more

2004 VW Golf R32 Project

2004 VW Golf R32 Project
On the 8th August 2017 we took a trip down to London to view a 2004 VW Golf R32. I had my eyes on this car for a few weeks and it really spoke to me, I think partly because my first car was a 1998 MK4 Golf 1.6 and my second car a 2002 MK4 Golf 1.9 GT TDI. The other reason this car stood out was because of the colour. It is Moonlight Blue Pearl and one of only 57 in the UK making it quite special. The car was in good condition. It had a few dents, scratches and patches of rust, however we expected it for it's age. Lots of service history, a little long since... Read more

NEW: Britemax ClayMax Clay Bar

We managed to get our hands on the Britemax ClayMax Chemical Resistant Clay Bar a few weeks ago, just before it's release. We put together a mini review of the product to let you know what we really though of it. The Britemax ClayMax Clay Bar is presented well in a smart, professional looking tin. This certainly gave us good first impressions on the product, showing that the manufacturer cared about the presentation, lets hope that quality also reflects in the clay bar itself. We cut the clay bar with a pair of scissors to get a nice clean edge and procceded to kneed the clay bar into a large coin sized piece. As this clay bar is Chemical Resistant it... Read more

We have genuinely never been let down by any of their products that we have used so far.
