Re: Boot sill protector

I have the German stainless steel cover. I found it better to pop rivet, rather than use the provided sticky pads and risk losing it (they quickly lost their tackiness) The grade of stainless is 304 which is good, the lesser grade of 430 would be magnetic and could possibly deteriorate, especially f...

Re: 4drive spare/spacesaver wheel

Re: 4Drive in the snow with all season tyres is impressive!

Turning off traction control and using a DSG box 'manually' helped me get some traction in the snow. Overall not impressed with snow capabilities, will change tyres to all season for the future.

Re: Machined alloy repair?
