    Hi from a newbie

    Hi folks! i've been visting this site for the past year and thought i'd best my arse in to gear and join up.
    I have just part ex'd my 2.0sri G for the Gsi. What a car! i love it.

    Could anyone give me some tips regarding buying and fitting samco hose's and would i have to tell my insurance company?

    Also would love to join you all at the next yorkshire meet!!!

    welcome mate, i dont know about telling your insurance company about the hoses but they are dead easy to fit. Are they they air or water
    hoses or even both?

    Hi thanks for the welcome!

    it's arden blue (i think) and i live in Bradford.

    I love the look of the gsi so not doing any mods to the outside other than irmscher grille which i took off my old sri, so i want to work under the bonnet starting with all the hoses i think samco blue would go well with the colour of my car. would love to play with performance parts but i'm paying £600 fully comp as it is and i've heard even with a performance back box your insurance leaps up! for some reason insurance companys don't like modders.
