  2. VW Data Plug

    Agreed, there has been some previous discussion on here that if you download the data to the phone app, could that be used by the police if they asked for it. I did use it at first, but the link to the app is random at best and my phone just keeps flagging how much power it's using in the background. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk

  4. Star Wars The Last Jedi

    I took the kids to see it on Thursday. I enjoyed it but I agree that it definitely wasn't the best star wars I have seen. It seemed to drag on a bit I thought.
  5. VW Data Plug

    Quite agree with it being in its infancy. Another thought - if the Taxman can now see your bank transactions, this could lead to the the Police wanting access to your driving data !!! 😇
  6. Golf GTD vs R

    I have recently changed from a Leon FR 184 to an R. Apart from the eco benefit of the Leon the R wins hands down in every other respect. Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk

  14. Turbo upgrade

    I’m running IS38 ETR for almost 2 months and quiet happy with it. Although the guys are right regarding the spool you will miss the early spool which OEM turbo provides. IS38 ETR turbo kicks in around 3800 RPM. If you are looking for alternative Turbo you got TTE6XX, LM500 version 2 , Vargas Turbo, Tomokie which is equivalent to TTE470 I reckon. Good luck with your decision, it took me time to decide as well but at the end I went for turbo technics, there been in the Game for sometime and offer a solid turbo with reasonable price comparing to others.

No idea how some of you are keeping the cost below £100 when the materials themselves are costing me roughly £70

    Have a look at Euro car parts, most of the time they have 33 to 35 % off list price or try Amazon for the oil as I have found it very cheap from time to time on there.

    Rozkipz: So - in your part of the world, what happens when you press the TRAFFIC button on the MIB escutcheon plate? Down here in the Antipodes, we have traffic reports that are sent over a sub-harmonic frequency of our FM radio. We can enable this facility by entering a code into the TMC adaptation channel on the MIB module. If we have RDS (Radio Data Service) enabled, this gives us a list of traffic reports in real time which appears as a list when we press the TRAFFIC button, and the reports also appear on the SATNAV screen Don

    Also where's the best place to get this 6L Castrol Edge oil and filter?! KashR where did you source your oil and filter?

  21. phone x contacts not syncing to 7.5R

    Mine (iPhone 6s) only syncs my favourites. When I first set it up I’m sure it synced all my contacts. I’m not sure at what point it started syncing favourites only, but I can’t get it to sync the rest now. I’ve tried unpairing and pairing again but when I re-synced it just did my favourites again.

  22. *Oil Service*

    Seems like I need to do the oil / minor service then and I'll source the oil myself together with the filter. Do you know when that second service is going to come as that's the expensive one from where I see it. Will I need to stump up that £329 at some point for the major service or does that occur in another year (i.e. when I give the car back to the lease company it will have the countdown running) and therefore will avoid it. I ask because I've heard of people doing a service late to avoid the second one. Adding roughly 164 + 329 = 493 for oil service / minor and major service. The lease company were offering me the maintenance option of 29.64 a month (£711 over two years) so I'm around 200 quid up by avoiding the maintenance option, just need to make sure I do the cost effective one.
  23. Project 7.5R - ARBs

    My first test drive was in a DCC R and to be honest with 19” I couldn’t feel much difference in the Modes. preferring normal and then race when pretty much good tarmac could be found . so I’m hoping the factory recommend adjustment levels are to My liking on the KWV3S otherwise I can soften up a little if required.

  25. Leaving handbrake off

    All I do is turn Auto hold off as pulling into the garage then the hand brake does not automatically come on.
  26. What detailing have you done today?

    Is your car fixed yet? 😂
  27. I almost went with the 18’’ prets for my winters but the width/offset put me off without running spacers. Anyway, went with BBS SX (18x8, ET45) which I’ll be putting on tomorrow. Been a nightmare as DPD delivered 2 last Friday, collected one on Tuesday as they couldn’t find the other which finally arrived tonight. Cleaned, sealed and dressed [emoji106]
