    Hello - picking up a MK5 Sri at the weekend...

    Just thought I'd join here and get some answers to a few questions !

    Firstly, does the 1.8 VVT engine benefit form super unleaded or does it make no difference ?

    Secondly, anyone fitted a detachable tow bar to there SRi ? ANy pictures would be great !

    Thanks very much !

    Justa

    hello mate and welcome.
    there are mixed views on the better grade petrol, you will find a few threads on here about it.
    ive not got a tow bar but does your car come with the xp kit if it does that could be a problem.

    As for your alloys mate, id guess there worth like £300, but not 100% sure...

    Your ride shouldnt be effected by putting 18's on, its only wen you go to 19s you can notice a difference :-)

    Welcome btw!

    The ride is a little harsher on 18's I'm afraid, from experience... does look better though...
