    I remember your wheel, it's nice too, and VERY different to the standard wheel, it's like night and day.

    I was not fully in the market but I got into a group buy and decided to put an order in. The core was supplied as well.
    MY20 MK7.5 Golf GTI - Tornado Red - LP/S&SP

    You know how the matting fabric on the underside of the bonnet shrinks and falls down (and BTW VW refused to replace mine under w'tee) ,,


    weeeelll a similar-looking fabric in my rear wheel arches is doing the same. Unfortunately, I only noticed it yesterday and my w'tee has expired. I don't think it will fall down but it has shrunk.


    Anyway, this has left a gap at the edge where the fabric should meet the bodywork, and high-pressure rainwater and mud would be injected behind the fabric. I reckon it might remain there and possibly cause problems like rust.
    I've become unable to mess about to see what gives behind the fabric.


    What do you think?
