Thread: Hi Guys, newbie to this. After some advice

    Hi Guys, newbie to this. After some advice

    Hey guys, never signed upto forums before despite being a bit of a petrol head. Just been taking advice from friends in the past but that's resulted in me being burned a few times. I drive a 2006 MKV Volkswagen Golf GTI, had a stage 1 remap done by superchips at present and running away at 245bhp. Just wondering if any1's knows if it's worth running an aftermarket air filter and if so, what I should be putting in the old girl. Also I'm due for new brake disks and pads, and they have been pretty spongy since owning the car, so debating between popping VW 1's on there or getting a set of Brembo's. Again any advice greatly appreciated. Formally I was driving a 2001 Audi S3 and had Brembo's on that which were awesome but don't want to spend the cash unless I need too. Cheers guys

    Welcome mate as for air filters there must be hundreds of options out there but personally a BMC or a cotton green panel filter have been the voice for me in the past as for stopping power speak to BVR one of the forum sponsors he will square you away
