    For those with cloth interiors

    Quick question too , how are people cleaning the silver inserts on the seats ? Just interior shampoo ? Suede brush ? Chris.
  8. If it's got Bluetooth the control unit will be under the drivers seat. Chris.
  9. My mates a VW tech so me and him did it. Just knowing how things come apart really. Try and find someone like that ? Or youtube and have a go yourself. Most fiddly bit is getting the drivers seat out. Chris.
  10. if you look at the 7P6 kits on the carsystems site they all do audio streaming. Mine was a K revision and does it. I've a RCD510. All the phone menus work fine and on the MFD. Chris.
  11. Depends what you want to spend doesn't it ? I bought the kit from carsystems.pl for mine. IIRC it was £200 ish. Microphone was already installed. I think all R's have the mic already there. Comes with the foam insert and everything you need. Most of the newer versions support bluetooth audio streaming too. Front seat out , sill trim off and headunit out. Then fish all the wires through to where they need to go. Bit of coding and job done. http://www.carsystems.pl/golf-6-bt,tag.html Chris.

    Misfire on Cyl 4

    It's on the standard map at the moment but was on a custom map by a guy from South Wales. He's done all my cars previously. Looking for a boost leak bung to check for leaks now too. Chris.

    Misfire on Cyl 4

    Evening all , I've had a misfire on cylinder four for the last few weeks and I'm trying to pinpoint the cause. It happens high up at between 5500 & 6500 rpm. A bit random but there most of the time. Done the ususal stuff like swap the plug and coil pack from 4 to 1 to see if the misfire moves with them but it stays on 4. Compression test next and then probably an injector. I've recently put a Loba pump on and an RS4 FPV and wondered if the extra rail pressure was causing the misfire or just exposing a weakness in the injector. I've put the standard map back in too just to rule that out. Bit of an odd one though that I can't say I've noticed before is that , on idle , one tailpipe blows hot and the other stone cold ! I'm fairly sure that they've both been hot in the past. Very odd as the gases come up the same pipe to the rear muffler ! I've also read to check the intake runner on the manifold for cracks as this can also cause a misfire. Is there much else I can check or has anyone had this before ? Its coming up with the random misfire code and the cylinder 4 misfire on VCDS. Cheers , Chris.

    Miltek valved catback

    My standard catback is open on idle mate. Chris.

    Miltek valved catback

    I think its supposed to be open on idle and small throttle loading , closes on mid throttle and then opens up on big throttle loading. I'm currently running a Scorpion downpipe with the standard catback (so a bit loud) and you can hear the valve closing at certain load. Chris.
