  2. As sad as it seems I will be selling this beauty in the next couple of weeks, so keep your eyes open for the classified advert........ June 2017 MK7.5 facelift
  3. What's wrong with the mk7.5??? This mpi dual injection issue will apply to the WLTP models so the 7.5 is going to be the car people will want to buy and potentially mean the 7.5 will hold its value - the 2017/18 models that are on the roads now

  5. Before mine had the ECU and TCU mapped at Unicorn it would go right through the gears on normal driving and I found myself in 7th gear at 40 mph, now the car is always in the right gear for the right road speed - i.e. at 30/40 mph I am in 4th gear, at 50/60 mph I am in 5th or 6th but never 7th and that's normal mode with normal driving. In race/sports it will hold the gear until 3000 rpm or slightly more before shifting up and in manual race/sports it's up to you when to shift and will easily go beyond 7,250 rpm towards 7,500 rpm before shifting up a gear. Looks like you could have a mapped car Hope that helps.
  6. Fitted a brand new PIPERCROSS Air Filter today. I've had the RAMAIR filter on for the last 4000 miles, and through the summer so thought it could do with a good clean. Will be using the K&N Cleaning Kit and will re-oil for use in the next 4000 miles
  7. You should have told her it was a flue for the BBQ 🀣
  8. I never told my Mrs I had done the res delete and she has made numerous comments such as: "What have you done" "What have you changed" "why is it louder" "I know you have done something to your car" I just play dumb and say I haven't done anything, promise luv 🀣🀣😁😁
  9. I also have the Uniroyal Rainsport 3's on my face-lift R, and they've been on the car for around 10k miles and give an excellent drive in all conditions, mind you I went up a size and run 245 x 35 x 19 on 8.5" rims so slightly more tread on the road
  10. The R had a good wash by hand, wheels deep cleaned, glass and light coat of prima, Pic taken at my local Tesco underground car park !!
  11. Bought my FL 7.5 R in Feb this year and was at that time just 7 months old with 5k on the clock. Previous owner bought service plans and they stayed with the vehicle as when I took it in for 1st service, the dealers in Bolton checked and agreed there was a service plan in place so cost me diddly squat for the service, also have the 2nd major one covered next year
  12. Hahaha - not yet, will have play tomorrow on way to work - I wonder what race mode with sports + 3 is like 🀣🀣
  13. I tried sports but the accelerator pedal still seemed to have some dead play, then went sports + 1 and it reduced the dead play, then went sports + 2 and got a mint feel to the pedal now
  14. Update: Pedal Box Black Edition delivered by UPS this afternoon and fitted. Have tested on several settings - Sport + 2 is very very nice and the unicorn map is sensational now ! I have to say that my impression is that with the car in normal mode and pedal box in Sports + 2 it feels like the car is in sports mode 😁😁 feels excellent !! Might felt the cubby trim now. Few pic's of the install below:
