    I've been running QFM A1RM for a few years. About to fit my 3rd set of pads onto the same rotors (DBA 4000). Rotor thickness is still over 24mm (new at 25mm), so can't complain about rotor wear. I'm...

    Note that mkV Golf wheels don't fit polo's, different stud pattern. So any "denver" look alike that'll fit is a replica.

    Our cars have some interchangeable parts with a mkIV Golf and next to...

    Shims have nothing to do with poke, you're thinking of spacers perhaps. Shims change the toe angle. Toe in = stable and boring, 3mm toe out helps turn in and agility.

    It's rare for second hand stuff to come up for the polo's.

    Intercooler wise, Forge and SeatSport are generally the two most used. There's other brands that evade me at the moment. Check out some...

    For brake pads, Remsa's are generally a great all rounder. All good daily, but can also handle moderate track time - they'll outlast a street tyre on track. Bendix do alright, but you'll pay almost...

    Hi Sam, re oils, my TSI Jetta will run oil temp of 120c just cruising down the highway, 110-114 sitting in traffic. Was up to 125c in summer. I saw a mechanic about my concerns and he checked it out...

    Yup, you only need the belt, hydraulic damper, tensioner and water pump as Sam said. It's pretty straight forward should you wish to DIY. Just mark up everything and off you go. Last kit I bought...

    Thanks Sam. Yeah, my only choice from here is stiffer rear springs as the bar is hard and the rear is already quite lifted. In reality, it was rotating quite nicely on the most part. On reflection,...

    It's certainly not a 1hr job to change the tensioner. I can't recall the labour charge, but you're looking at roughly $1000 all up for the tensioner and new cover.

    Yeah, extremely weak form from...

    The car set-up was pretty darn good actually. Over steer on cold tyres, but after a session or two was pretty neutral. I think I was 8 or 9th fastest of the 33 cars, probably the fastest on a street...

    Mate, coil packs fail, not anything to be concerned about re a recall. Some guys carry a spare pack in the glove box for this very reason. I've been fortunate to not have experienced it, but still...
