R Legend & all round God (8/9)



  1. Are Coast to Coast a Fleet buyer ? or are they like Drive the Deal where you get full dealer details / contacts and all the VW Finance options and PCP dealer contributions (if available) ?
  2. It started working again yesterday thankfully (so five days this time). I have complained to VW We-Connect each time and requested an extension to my 3 year subscription due to all the lost weeks as compenstaion. They kindly gave me an extra 3 month service extension :- "Our specialists have offered 3 months of We Connect Plus service extension as a gesture of goodwill. In case you accept the offer, please directly reply with your confirmation. Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation and efforts. For further clarifications, we remain at your disposal around the clock, 7 days a week. You may reply to this email, or call us on our dedicated line 0800 – 2797508. We kindly ask, that you indicate your reference 000119##### for a quick follow-up. We wish you always a safe and pleasant journey with your Volkswagen Golf. Your Volkswagen team"
  3. Unfortunatley WeConnect is a bit temperamental here in the UK too, well at least in my car πŸ™„ Fifth time this has happened now (and first since updated software) Greyed out Globe, no WeConnect and a message. It usually stays like this for around 10 days and then suddenly returns.
  4. It was never going to stay Β£8.23 for long I'm afraid, but it was that price for a while πŸ‘ Amazon Price History Below :-
  5. Nearly half price today at Β£8.23. Usually Β£14 - Β£15 Turtle Wax TW53353 Ceramic LINE Spray Protector : Amazon.co.uk: Automotive
  6. Quick update to the above. I'm pleased to report that all the software updates were completed by the next day (8th Sep). Reading up on the big 1896 update that was done on my car I've read in a few places that further software updates beyond 1896 will all be done OTA. Anyone know if this is right ? Someone already has had a taste of 1898 :-
  7. Nice ! ... is that right hand bag a selection bag of various types of MF ? or do my eyes deceive me !! If it's a selection could you post a link please ?
  8. Hope all the work gets done soon and you can start to enjoyπŸ‘ You do right getting the work done now before pickup.
  9. A little clean & protect often is the best way I've found, especially during the Winter months when I am least inclined to do it !! It's the gritted roads that can be the real killer for the exhaust tips, if you don't keep up with them. I've had pitting on previous ones left for too long over Winter πŸ˜’
  10. At least you can get / order an R here in the UK too. No chance of a getting a GR Corolla : https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/toyota/corolla/104846/new-toyota-gr-corolla-hot-hatch-revealed-295bhp .
  11. TBF Central Vehicle Leasing always provided full details - Order Number and Dealer for all my lease deals with them and all have been delivered by older retired gentlemen ! πŸ˜πŸ‘. I know most brokers don't divulge details though which is very annoying.
  12. How did it go ? Are you up in Glasgow ?
  13. So all my updates were completed last Thursday. Still showing as outstanding on the above link at the moment, but the dealer said it may take a couple of weeks to change.
  14. I read somewhere that the wiring looms came from Ukraine, so as well as the chip shortage (which I think is now easing) there is the Ukraine war limiting wiring looms πŸ™„ https://www.fleetnews.co.uk/news/manufacturer-news/2022/03/16/ukraine-war-vw-moves-wiring-harness-production-as-supply-chain-issues-grow
  15. Ebay is your friend for Cadiz alloys. Shame I sold mine last year on Ebay as part of a well overdue clearout of spare alloys !, otherwise you could have had a nice set of Cadiz and decent tyres. It's a bit of expense initially but if you keep them clean & kerb free you can easily resell them again years later for not much loss. You could keep your black ones for Winter months with some Winter / All Season tyres - the R is brilliant in the snow with Winter tyres ! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/334346720989? - shame in Northern Ireland they look good ! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/363951116899?
