Nice pass on the MOT. Car should idle around the 800-900 rpm when it's warmed up, so it could be a bad MAF. For the oil temp check the measurements with VCDS, clusters of our age are not the most accurate.
The state of those brakes, had it been parked in the sea for a week?
Yeah, when I fitted them, I found this axle offset difference, very odd. The front spoke out, and the rears are tucked. Got 15mm spacers I got with the wheels, maybe I could go 10mm front, and 20mm rear (per side).
And as for colour, your preaching to the converted here, I truly hate black, or dark grey, or even gun metal grey colour wheels on most cars. It takes away the beauty of the wheel design if you ask me. But with the red of the car, I can’t help but think I couple shades darker than the regular silver would look pretty good. But I’m undecided. It may end up being the standard silver. I like the wheels, and we’re 85% sure they are Genuine as well, which would be a bonus.
I found this thread on Audizine quite useful for identifying genuine BBS wheels, studied it hard before going to buy my ch012's! If yours are genuine, it looks like you might have ch025's going by the offset and lack of alignment holes?
Despite my comments about silver looking better, I just this afternoon bought a set of old school Superturismo's that came up for sale near me... in gunmetal grey I think they'll look good but i'm doubtful they'll replace the ch's as my favourite.
I'll leave you with some silver ch inspiration
Last time I had a steaming up issue the heater matix was shot and needed replacing.
For the charcoal system I would say most likely issue would be the solenoid valve, that was one of the valves that was faulty on my car and had to replace it. Think the part number is 058133517 Bosch one is about £20 delivered off ebay
I’ll try, easiest way is get yourself on this Autodoc app, the parts are all on their, with multiple suppliers at different price points. Also depends how much of the PCV system you need. I’ll include some OE numbers below for the various parts I used.Can you link me the parts for replacing the pcv system ?
