Hi everyone ! About a month ago I won a eBay auction for neuspeed p-flo. Had only been on the car for 10k miles but the seller was changing cars so hence selling the p-flo.I cleaned it up and installed today. Very happy! My r32 originally came with piper cross viper induction kit. The car ran ok with it but it looked lost in the bay so I changed it for a std air box. The std air box actually made the car a little nicer to drive especially low revs very smooth. The p-flo is very different in terms of noise! It roars and sounds immense. Drives like the std air box setup apart from at say 4k revs approx. then the car feels like it has bit more 'go'. Anyway pics!

So today I carried out the arch liner screw fix to the front to cure the rubbing. You can find the linky searching fender screw fix on google, it's on golf mkv.com I think. Any how pics!
So this pic is looking from up inside the arch. Pushed the plastic liner behind the metal tab, then bent the tab up. Replacing the screw not necessary as this was what rubbed!

Next pic shows how the screw head was touching rubber!

Did both sides then got busy and cleaned her up!

Thanks pal. Yeah get the arch liner mod done. Biggest hassle is jacking the car up. Once the wheels drop a fair bit you can get your hands in and it's a 10 min job each side.

I want to swap the MFD2 for something. Have got hold of a RCD510 but can't fit until I sort Canbus upgrade ref battery drain. Think I might ebay MFD2 plus RCD510, then buy the RNS510 from guy on here, Nick I think?? Theres a few other things I want to do, little things like one of the tinted windows has gone a bit flaky??? Need to get that sorted - but no rush.

Santa got me some bits and bobs from chemical guys! The v7 sealant detail spray is really glossy. Used it today and very happy with the result.

Hi Oliver
US grille - very nice :-) I went with the split down and repaint option!
Show n go kit took me a couple of hours to install. The kit is well made and has survived the British weather so far.
I went with the kit for Camaro C5 (I think).

MOT no problems :-) My plate is not strictly legal as its tad smaller than should be. Have no problems though.

Thanks mate. Sounds really nice. Not as loud as the neuspeed though.
Have changed the coil caps to black now. Helios going on today, will let car settle and take a pic tomorrow.

I came across this one on eBay. Came with blue hoses and no fitting kit, it's off a R32 track competition car (according to seller). Good news is its mint. Paid £250.
New they are £340 ish. You can get them through ppcgb (prestige performance centre).
