2. When the car is loaded up and being driven hard I got a tiny bit of rubbing in the front left arch liner. Going through a corner that had a bump in it. Really only there where the arch liner bulges out for the fixing screw but still a bit of rubbing if given the right combination of corner, loading and speed.

you need to do the fender screw mod. Remove the screw at the top and push the fender liner to sit onto of the screw tab ;)

That will fix it.
Had this issue, since lowering my mk6 gti last week.
No longer rubbing.
