Was at the uk-mkivs rolling road day yesterday. its their first rolling road day since buying out big boys toys. rollers seemed very very accurate and thei hospitality/customer service was excellent!

Anywhoo, car got 188 Bhp and 275nm/202.8 lb/ft torque so its running as it should be which is good stuff

Seeing as though my rear wiper decides to be an arse and not work i decided to be an arse and remove the bugger.

After



Cost me just over 1 for a pack of grommits, and took about 10 mins

Dude, you can get little glass bits to put in the hole instead of the grommet, they look much better and don't cost loads of money.

Venom motorsport sell them.

Still got the front lights?

Much better only like this on cars where the wiper is in the glass. Like these, Corsa C's etc

Wonder what difference the BHP will be due to less drag

PS Fro Im going for the MKV rear wiper option... ive already started Mk V'ing the rear by taking off the GOLF badge on the boot, looked at the sharan badges too but IMO they look a bit too small on such a big boot!!

aero wipers, r32 air vents (in-dash), cd player, tints and r32 door pins next on the egenda

Why not go for one of the newer Aero stlye rear wipers, if its anything like the S3 the back of the car attracts dirt like flies round shit.
