  1. What car to buy next after the golf r?

    Modern cars especially premium cars are expensive to repair. I had a BMW 1 Series, the ABS pump failed, BMW wanted £2500 to fit a new pump, a few weeks later a sensor related to the steering failed, another £480. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. What car to buy next after the golf r?

    I'm planning on getting a daily run around and getting a Jaguar F Type for the fun times, the 5.0 V8, either the R or the SVR depending on prices when I'm ready to buy. Amazing cars and for me the best sounding cars on the road. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  4. Electrical Gremlins in my car

    Videos don't seem to work sorry
  5. Electrical gremlin in my car, just wondering if anyone has had similar or any idea what it could be. It’s a 66 plate. Basically over the past week or so this has happed. The car comes up ACC not available for a second and the doors unlock and lock then it goes away, then does it again. The head unit when I put it on vehicle status that goes nuts and when the ACC comes up unavailable and the doors unlock and lock it says Car status unavailable. Also today for the 1st time the speedo dropped to 0 when I was doing 40mph then kicked back in. I’m guessing it’s a problem with the head unit as I read it’s the brains of the car apart from the ECU. Cars standard by the way. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks I’ll try and add videos below of the fault. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. 4k rpm warning

    Someone else said the DTUK pedal box made his car go into limp mode after a few months of ownership, he took it off in the end & the problem went away. Maybe best to remove it just to rule it out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Weird

    I just popped to the local shops got in my car was driving along then the doors started to lock and unlock themselves & it flashed up front assist unavailable for a split second every time it locked & unlocked. It did this about 4 times then stopped. I wonder if it’s the battery getting low. Updated been out twice since and no sign of it again, must have been a gremlin in the electrics lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Lead times for Golf R Estate

    Best off speaking your local dealers as each one gets there own allowance of vehicles, so if one is over his allowance for your vehicle it may cause more of a delay where as another VW dealer down the road might not have used all there allowance and the order may be processed quicker.

  11. It takes a Special kind of Stupid

    It must be so disheartening for Police though when they risk there lives catching these thieves only to see them get a slap on the wrist. The justice system needs to get tough to discourage these people rather than slapping them on the wrist and giving them point on a licence they don’t have. They have no respect for the law or other people’s property, why should we respect them? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Autowatch Ghost Question

    I’ve wondered that, has anyone actually had an attempted theft of a car with the Autowatch Ghost? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It takes a Special kind of Stupid

    You mean the ones they catch driving with no licence, some as young as 14-15 then all they get is a £100 fine & a driving ban for 6 months for the licence they don’t have and obviously don’t care about the rules anyway. They need to get tougher with the scum that keep doing this instead of slapping there wrists and saying now don’t do it again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Green peace has boarded a ship in Germany descant for the UK full of new shiny VW’s & pinched the keys from a number of cars, it’s over the emissions scandal. There saying they don’t want polluting cars in the UK so are stopping the shipment, but the new cars are within regulation, it’s the older cars that are the problem.
