  1. To DCC or not to DCC?

    Don't think DCC will affect your driving ability, good or bad. I think it's about feel. I toyed with it, having upgrades to 19's I wad unsure if I would need it. In the end I decided I would be forever changing settings and never settle (had BMW's at work and was always changing from normal to sport) I didn't get it in the end. I'm happy with that. The ride on 19's is firm but this is a hot hatch so I expected that. I suppose it depends if you want the ability to waft along in comfort and change the throttle and ride on race. Personally I can live with the firm ride and saved the money. Others may have a different opinion of course. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  2. Be Careful

    Unfortunately 10% plus 2 is merely a recommendation by ACPO. However most forces work to it. Hopefully it's just a threat and nothing will come of it. 14 day nail biting wait! Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  3. What detailing have you done today?

    Find this detailing malarkey therapeutic and rewarding! Love this car. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  4. Yawn. Please can we close this thread. It's way off topic, willy waggling about who's machine is better. End of the day, each to their own. No need to get into churlish spats via the old keyboard. Perhaps I'll have to start one of those online petitions to get the threads closure discussed in Parliament [emoji23][emoji16] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  5. Admin need to change the title of this thread to 'My Audi is better than your Golf' Bit off topic me thinks 😊 Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  6. Are 19" alloys a good option?

    I run 19 Prets without DCC. Firm ride but what you would expect with a hot hatch. You can live with it. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  7. Beadage

    Storm Doris did her best to reduce her shine. Instead, she helped to show off her beadage 😊💕 Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  8. VW Head unit. Mental block

    Seems that simple. D/L on my fibre hour. Unzip and install. Easy. Worth it for full postcode search. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  9. VW Head unit. Mental block

    The November update. Only just got round to it. Never use the Navigation but can't have an outdated version [emoji4] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  10. I'm going to update my navigation today and I've had a mental block. Do I have Discover Media or Discover Pro?? I have the 6.5" screen and didn't pay to upgrade, so I have the Discover Media, right. If that's the case, I need to download the 6gb update and not the 23gb one. Help my Sunday afternoon brain freeze. Thanks. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  11. Golf R thefts. ..

    Think the simple conclusion to this thread is, thieves are targeting Golf R's countrywide (I live in a sleepy county and know of two) Therefore we should do our best to not make their lives any easier. Regardless of what happens to the cars. Hide your keys, don't park out front, considered CCTV and stay vigilant. That's gotta be the message in a thread like this.

    I downloaded direct to my android device and uploaded from it using the USB port. That may help. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  13. Quick Detailers - Correct Use

    Sweet. I was quite pleased with the result and couldn't ever see me using as a waterless wash. Thanks for the prompt, as ever, response Booth. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  14. Team I bought and used a quick detailer for the first time today and I think I've misunderstood what they are actually for. I thought they were used after a proper clean when you are tight on time and you want to touch up your polish/wax base. However, having reread the forums it appears they are more for almost a water free car clean. Is this right? Can they be used to touch up my wax base? If they aren't a spray on top up, is there such a thing that people recommend. Cheers Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  15. hey there mate... i can take the conti tyre off you for £70 if thats ok....
