      thanks!

      So i started with my next project: Polish the valve cover

      It will be allot of work to get it shiny. But i am motivated, and i think i will finish it in 3 days

      here a first pic of it. Sanded all with 150 grid.



      Also did some modifications on the vacuum hoses, with as result a lower fuel consumption. I drive daily 150km (100miles) with the car and gasprices are killing me. Spend every month over the 600 euro only on gas. So a good update i think.

      So my valvecover polish is done.

      Spend 9 hours on it.
      Also polished the charge pipe from the turbo to the intercooler.

      Tomorrow i will order some new strut bushing, mine are noisy.

      Ordered some new part for her

      Some new heavy duty front strut bushing (leon cupra 1ML 412 331) some bearings, spark plugs etc.

      Hopefully the irritating noise from the front suspension will disappear I replaced almost everything now...

      Hello,

      New small update for the TT. I made a short shifter for her.

      I installed it and it feels so different. I don't now if i like the short side to side movement.
      But the forward /backward movement is much shorter and feels so good.

      I cut the stock brackets and welded it all back together.

      I started with this:


      and the result:

      And that loss of weight and momentum doesnt hurt the shifting?

      No not all. Feels much better without the weight.

      Don't understand why all newer cars have this weight.

      there was a company called diesel geek a long time ago that was very popular that made short shift kits that looked very similar in design to that. simple and effective. i had a bit of experience with them. they were great for a while. then after some time got notchy and over time more and more notchy eventually it got annoying.

      keep us updated if it gets annoying and you dont like it

      Today i replaced my front strut bushing.

      As mentioned i replaced them with seat cupra R which are much stronger.
      First impression: Drives much better, the difference is so much. Reason why i did this job: sometimes on bad roads the front suspension was knocking / rumbling
      I recommend it to do this update.

      The differences, left the new one, on the right the old dimensions are the same.


      And under the bonnet: Left the old and right the new ones.


      greets

      They look smaller, but not as small as the polo bushings

      Ok, i hope this will not happen to mine

      Drove now for 600km with it and it feels stills fine. But... sometimes it's more difficult to get them in the right gear. If its get notchy, i will place the originals back.

      It probably just needs some adjustment. They are very touchy when not adjusted properly

      Guys i need your help.

      The front end is still noisy on bad roads, last month i replaced the front struts.
      I thought it was the problem but it's still there... (not so loud anymore)

      I jacked up the car to inspect everything but i can't find anything. All bushing are looking fine. I did an test with a large screw-driver to check everything. i can't find anything.

      My stab rods are brand new, all joint are brand new.

      When i start the car in the morning and take my first ride it's more noisy than when the car is hot.

      I was wondering if someone have suggestions were to search.

      Did you check where the subframe mounts to the body or motor mounts maybe? I'm really not sure.

      yes i mean sway bar end links (didn't know the right description haha)

      Good point to check the engine mounts. Didn't think about that.
