So here's a pic of black caps for reference. Plus I removed the plastic cover off the manifold because I marked it. Am thinking about repainting it. Pics follow.

New mot today. While on the ramps I asked my garage to have a look for a slight knock. I can hear a clink type noise over potholes.
Turns out the baffles in back box are loose. Miltek warranty is only with original owner. On the upside they will offer a discount. I'll find out what the discounted price is soon.
In meantime what would you guys do? Go custom back box or replace same as with the discounted Miltek?
The system at present is resonated cat back.

I would speak to lucifer about a back box as his exhausts are based on the milltek so would fit your system

Got to get the serial no off the Miltek tag and find out what discount is available. Tried to get under the car with it jacked up but not having it. So back to garage and on the ramps.
But yes - lucifer is an option. Good call.

Just back from hols (2 weeks in Turkey)..........all good.
Get home and the R32 is covered in sand, hardcore dust, cement dust from neighbour having patio work done.
Its properly baked on!!! I though t it would wash off but no its properly etched into the paint. Won't come off by hand with SSR2.5.

I machined the roof and the bonnet yesterday, one pass won't be enough - I can still see the damn marks!!. Gonna do couple more panels tonight and the glass.
The paint was A1before I left for hols. I put hours into it!!!!!
Rant over................!!

Cement dust is an absolute nightmare, especially on such a clean black surface as yours. Good luck!
The Helios' look fantastic.

I can be rude, opinionated, and sometimes come off as a dick. I am just speaking my mind. If it offends you, PM me. Don't go whine to someone else. I am civil, talk to me.

Hey mate. Headunit is 8" android. Wifi. Bluetooth. Seller on ebay called asure i think. Needed an upgrade over the mfd2. Its the one with no buttons. Looks good and i love the sat nav. 7 digit postcode is like stepping into modern world over the mfd2.

Damn that's clean! Paint looks amazing. It's funny to see a manual MK5, they're quite rare aren't they!

What's the difference between the grill you had on and this US spec one?

I NEED a Milltek, or Lucifer on mine! So much neater.

Original grille was filled and painted to look OEM. The US spec one is a genuine coloured holeless grille. Looks spot on
