Get the stage one and Michelin's done mate, you will love it. I'm telling you I bet it needs raised a tiny bit more, mine was a clunk every now and then like I left a hammer in the boot or loose top nut.Honestly I loved the car even before I had them fitted but now I love them even more. Had a little run out again tonight after dropping it 2 turns, a few bumps here and there so maybe back up another one. 😂
Apart from that though, the car itself is just an excellent car to own, something that quite honestly, if my situation ever allows for it, I’d probably buy something a little fruitier as a weekend car.
Next things for me now are spacers, PS5s, breather mods, exhaust and then a stage 1 - sounds like the perfect little car to me 👌🏻
I did go back down again by 2 full turns so I think that it must just be too low, maybe it doesn’t look too bad as it’s still on the stock tyres? Maybe there is something else at play. I’m going to keep adjusting over the weekend, it’s still booked for Tuesday to get looked at so if I can’t full resolve it myself hopefully something will come of that.That's odd, I had that exact thing happen as far as I can remember and it was only when the shocks were set too low, we tried to tighten the top mount bolt and nothing worked, he eventually listened then raised it slightly. I'm lost because it does not seem all that low like.....

I have always wanted to do a stage three, reason being I bought an up not because I'm poor in relative terms lol, but I wanted something that could afront some bigger cars and have good fuel mileage. Thing is, with a stage three it would almost be same as a stock GTi, I would love to see peoples jaws drop but I don't want to see the gearbox all over the road lol.I also need to save some pennies before any more bits - probably best! All being well in a couple of years (warranty) I fancy a trip to JBS.
What do people think regarding stage 3? I know it's a lot less bang for your buck than stage 1, but I would be concerned about reliability (not really based on anything). The power sounds amazing!
You can just have the downpipe but people are encouraged to change the rest and I think it's a load of rubbish if I ever go stage 3 I will be doing exactly that regardless of what they say it's my car and when it goes on the Dyno and makes .01 bhp less than a car with a full milltek non resonated and sounds like it's manifold gasket has blown 🤣 a downpipe will change the tone but I reckon the standard exhaust would make it more on the level of something like the standard car with a resonated scorpion.... Less is more 😎Great thoughts guys. I had assumed that you could have a stage 3 (and 2) with just a downpipe change. Everyone's different but for me I wouldn't want to go loud, so good point.
