Just realised: these shocks are yellow, so doesn't that mean they're b6 rather than b4 ?
Sorry - you’re absolutely right! I was being a complete numpty. They are of course B6s being midway between B4 (stock shock absorber one for one replacement) and B8 for seriously lowered suspension. Sorry for the confusion! They do give a lowered ride height in conjunction with the GTI springs and I do like the firmer ride/better control. 👍

So tonight I got the second project car. The Up hasn’t been forgotten about, but I couldn’t miss this deal and the Lupo is what start my thing for small VW’s. So I spent 3 hours cleaning and getting rid of the mice in the engine bay. The little Blue Turd is next to Tiny Turbo. View attachment 5605

That Lupo is a really cool looking machine - especially in that colour. Wish the Up! was available in a retina searing blue like that......😀😀

So last night I came across some 40mm H&R’s for £60 secondhand. Drove straight over to get them, now to order some Bilstein Shocks.

So after my drive out the other day I jet washed the Up on the way home. Now I have a stuck rear brake (which I have fixed with a hammer).

There is also now a loud grinding noise from the front nearside disc. Took the wheel off can't see anything. Pads are there with plenty of meat on them, nothing in the stone guard and everything looks alright. 🤷‍♂️
