    Auto Hold and Stop/Start

    You don’t need to hold the brake, and to restart lightly tap accelerator, engine will start, press again to release autohold and start moving, this way stops the small jerk that you would get if you just press accelerator to go from engine off.

    Quite a bit cheaper if you don't go with the CF look, they quoted me £245+vat for something like this Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Prince Philip.

    It's good to hear Prince Philip is recovering after an accident involving his Nobility Scooter. I'm sure the forum wishes him a speedy recovery.

    Prince Philip.

    I had the same thought. Wonder if papers would have reported it differently, or plod would be looking for a license withdrawal if it had been a ‘normal’ 97 year old?

    Servicing

    Every car I've owned with aircon (many) the aircon has always been on in some shape or form. In this time I've never had an aircon service, as long as it blows cold I'm happy.....

    VRS or UNICORN

    Both Rick at unicorn and Will at vrs are great guys and seriously know there stuff I don’t think you’ll be disappointed either way. The main difference is Rick will write a bespoke map for your car tailored to you needs where as Vrs use a generic map from Apr (still very good and well respected) it’s really horses for courses so choose what suits you.

    Estate Res Delete

    Have to say overall second day with the delete on the car and have just done 90 miles. Mixture of heavy traffic and dual carriageway. No drone and under heavy acceleration it just reminds me of a cat back exhaust. Couldn’t recommend it enough.

    Also APR stage 2 with the following mods, Apr stage 2 map Scorpion decat Ramair induction kit NGK racing spark plugs Millers nanodrive 5w-40 oil VWR turbo elbow VWR turbo resonator delete GFB diverter valve Exhaust resonator delete It was on the dyno at Regal after the stage 2 but before the Airtec cooler got 385bhp. I was more concerned with how the car feels rather than all out figures.

    Auto Hold and Stop/Start

    Don't panic, it's working as designed (VW are very keen on safety, so they won't allow the car to move until you clearly tell it you want to move, and just releasing the brake isn't that). To restart the engine press on the accelerator when you want to move off and it will restart and start moving. If you just want to start the engine (without moving) wiggle the steering wheel a bit. BTW, welcome to VWROC

    Mk7 Apr stage 2

    I've never bothered to have mine on Dyno, the good thing being with APR is there are 100s of us around the world with it and many have been on dyno, many UK dealers give you before and after dyno charts, plenty of people Vbox, 1/4 mile so you can be fairly sure that stage 2 HO is around 400hp and 420lbs. Good for 0-60 in 3.2-3.4 and 1/4 mile between 11.6-11.8 depending on set ups etc. I wouldn't be hung up on dyno numbers too much. All read differently, some higher/lower. I know that years of being on this forum Rick's numbers always lower/accurate on his dyno but always backed with very fast Vbox and 1/4 mile times.

    Exhausts

    Fitted mine with the front resonator box and love the sound of it, only had it on a few days and really only done my short commute to work but I did a little detour this morning on the way home at 6am and omg it Sounds good. Yeah a res delete is cheap and cheerful but it doesn't compare to a 3" catback.... Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Haldex filter

    Had my haldex oil changed to day also had the haldex filter that VW say doesn’t need changing (they don’t even make them as spares) changed Think I might have to disagree as this is mine after 35k miles

    Turbo inlet elbow

    I've got to admit, im a bit sceptical about some of the things you hear about inlet systems. From an engineering point of view, the intake pipework can be as large as diameter as you want but it's always going to be restricted by the smallest bottleneck in the system, in this case, the inlet to the turbo itself. I'll probably still get one though (the cheaper one) as I already have a pipercross induction kit and the oem elbow just looks out of place.

    Turbo inlet elbow

    Having had the vwr one and the creation motorsport one I’d 100% go with the cheaper one. The cheaper one uses the original o-ring to seal where the vwr one uses 2 small o-rings which destroy themselves every time you remove it.

    Race, What Race!

    I think the consensus from other threads was : DSG cars : When restarting, Race mode is still selected but the DSG has reverted back to normal D mode. In D mode the exhaust flaps do not appear to open as fully or readily as in S mode. So to get back to full blown race mode you either need to cycle through the engine modes again to Race mode (which puts the DSG into Sport mode too) OR you just select Sport mode again with the DSG. This is consistent with my findings too. Manual Cars : Most people have said that on restarting, Race mode is still selected but the exhaust note seems a lot quieter and in order to get back to full open flaps / exhaust note you need to reselect race mode again. This seems consistent with n4aat's and a lot of other manual owners experience.
