      I'll have mine on soon. I had to deal with :

      Leaky fuel lines
      Fuel and temp gauge running the motor pig rich.
      A chick rear ended my car while texting

      They'll go on a BBM billet spring tensioner cap, powder coated G60 mount brackets and a nice fresh BBM VWMS G-Ladder.

      I hear you, man. I have mine in my tensioner that is going on my 1.9L. They fit well off the car, but that means nothing. I just finished some paint, so hopefully my car will be running in a bit and I will try to remember to post back here.

      I've been meaning to get a set of these for some time but other things keep popping up. I would love to see how well these work.

      So you're the one that bought the VWMS G-ladder from BBM? Very cool piece and I'm glad someone is running it.

      Tap out the old spring tensioner bushings with a 3/8 socket extension. I used a little di-electric grease on the o ring and it's a perfect fit! The new one's installed on top and the old one is in the bottom.

      No worry. Less bark, more wag. Buy a few of em to support the guy who made these and for that day he decides to stop making them.

      The payPal link to purchase these is not so easy (or not available) to get to on their sites.

      The fit is perfect we have made these for a few years now and havn't had 1 complaint. We came up with these for our own G60's and deciced to make a few for those that needed them. They don't move very fast and problably will not make more I don't think that there are too many G60's left out there.
      These cars scream for an aftermarket plug and play engine management. I'm still running the Stock digi and dislike it but I tolerate it because my G60's aren't dailys. I have never really been able to tune the Digi with added boost to my likeing and made it rock solid reliable. Lean is all ways the issue. It's good for stock boost but the G60 engine is capable of alot more with an aftermarket EM.

      They are cool little parts. I might sneak my spare tensioner on my car so I can keep your bushings if I ever sell my car. I appreciate the custom work, not many people do this type of thing for us anymore. I am trying to figure out a way to make euro G60 turn lenses, so maybe I will join you in the ranks of masochist corrado custom parts dealers.

      Awesome that somebody is making something solid and rebuild able so to speak. I've needed one of these for a little while now. Mine got to the point where the factory rubber was so deteriorated that it pushed the tensioner on the idler pulley and shaved a nice 1mm deep groove in it. Luckily, I have several new pulleys laying around. Germancarparts.com sells new tensioners with new bushings, but not just bushings by them selves. I suppose if your bushings are as bad as mine was i t may be time for a new tensioner anyway. I ended up taking a large vaccum plug and chopped it so it would duplicate the original rubber piece. As worked awesome for over a year now, even with an almost absurd amount of tension on the belt. Thanks in part due to the BBM tensioner cap I have and the fact that I have BBM's brand new lyshom and want to keep belt slip to a minimum. Anyways, awesome product. Completely eliminates the possibility of digging into your $40 idler pulley if the rubber fails.
