Indeed. I'm actually really starting to like the Golf VR. People who say they don't handle, are talking poop. that big heavy lump up front helps to keep you on the straight and narrow.

That said, I'm not breaking Gooney Smile

They do handle if you dial in the Corrado's geometry settings and lower them, plus the obligatory fat rear ARB and rear turret brace of course Very Happy

Well, if I sell the squirt, I can get everything I need to run the G400 ECU asap, rather than having to wait and wait Smile Endorsed by work too....oh and my good lady wife Laughing

Got my battery with me today, so shall be sticking that on our super-dooper charger we have down at the garage this afternoon.

Ordering a tyre on Monday (get paid), and need to book the MOT for next week Smile

Spare tyre is a dud; bulge-tastic, so two tyres it is. Will order them Monday.

Tried charging the battery last night with a little Sealey charger I borrowed from work. Seemed to take a little bit of charge managed to turn the engine over very slowly, but nowhere near enough. Will leave it on charge overnight again.

Off to work for the afternoon Sad Will get on the case with refitting the rooflining and bleed the brakes tomorrow.

Got the tyres fitted on Friday. Noticed that the 'spare' Sebring was a little square, thought it would be OK, but checked today and it's not sealing properly....down to 5psi Sad

Bled the back calipers, and pedal improved, but was having a right game with my Eezi-bleed. Going to inlist Carleena's help tomorrow evening I think.

Oh, and drove it up and down the road a few times tonight....first drive ever Laughing

That was the spare that I had a new tyre fitted to, as the tyre that was on it when pumped up, was all bobbly around the inner side wall! The N/S front I was going to use as the spare, as it's in pretty good nick, changing both fronts at the same time and all that Smile

Baby steps indeed Smile

Can't seem to get the pressure in the system. It's either too low or too high and starts leaking Sad
