    Bit of an update on the steering situation: replaced the entire rack/tie-rod assembly.

    So an aligment was needed and then we saw this:
    26284824987_de5dc84ff7_b.jpg

    The camber was way off, 0° on one side, -2° on the other...What is going on? Turns out the wishbone bushings are completely shot, desintegrating is a better word even. Difficult to see when they are on the car.

    So replacing them with new OEM ones? Nope, Powerflex adjustable blackseries bushing so we can adust camber and caster.

    Is it just the front kit you’ve got? What are the instructions like? I’ve never dropped the sub frames so just wondering if it’s something I’d be able to do easily on my drive.

    Those OZ's just finish off the Mk3 nicely, it's the perfect offset.

    Outstanding mate. Must feel amazing.

    Hope you’re enjoying it. Looks amazing. Been SO happy with our Ultraleggera.

    Quite an update there and as mentioned those OZ wheels really do make a huge difference to how the car looks. Don’t suppose you have any feedback on the collars do you? I’m so tempted to buy some if the claims they make are true.

    Fantastic car. Looking VERY well indeed. Love it.

    I’m not convinced by the ‘car is finally ready’ statement though :sunglasses:

    There never ‘ready’...they just continue to evolve. Superbly well in your case.....

    the effect they have is profound, the entire front end feels a lot more solid.

    Im even more tempted now, I take it it’s solid but controlled (not crashy)?? Did you just buy the front set, I think I’m the website it says they have a front and rear kit?
