  1. Possibly a Cloudflare temporary issue. If it rears its ugly head again can you post here and @ mention me or PM me please.
  2. About f**king time @Hurdy 😘 Seriously though dude, congratulations! It's shame the 6R didn't make it - those damn clutches...
  3. So you're saying you like it, yeah?
  4. I might be speaking from a bias position, but I think it's superb that VW are expanding the R range. Imagine if VW Rs can match up against some the S and RS cars in the Audi range. This would be brilliant. An Arteon R, the T-Roc R (despite the awful name) makes perfect sense. The Tiguan R - yep. I'm liking that idea too. I had utter distain for the R-Line range. This is how VW should have gone. Now if they could bring back the Rocco R with AWD and a Polo R, we'll really be in business! Well done VW!

    RIP

    I believe I met him, or a least saw his car at a dyno day a few years ago. Very sad news to lose anyone from the VW scene & community. My, and the whole VWROC team's, thoughts are with Paul's friends and family.
  6. Thanks for supporting the site. You'll see that the ads between posts have almost all been removed now thanks to helpful feedback.
  7. Can you elaborate please Matt? Generic criticism like ‘too many ads’ doesn’t really give me much to work with. Which ads, which pages/sections, where are the distracting ads placed? That input would be very helpful 👍🏼 As you can see, I’m more than happy to listen and implement changes. As for the reasons forums close. There are many reasons. But to blame ads alone is shortsighted. Interestingly people seem more content with a secret violation of privacy than with visible ads.
  8. Ok guys, while this costs us money, I appreciate that the ads placed automatically by Adsense were OTT. I've removed some locations and reduced the ad load right down to the minimum setting - this should drastically reduce the number of ads between posts. This may take a few hours to take affect.
  9. What is actually annoying about it mate? Not being awkward, I’d just like some real feedback so that I can fine tune the settings.
  10. I’ll check it out. I did enable a setting that lets Google Adsense determine the most suitable locations for ads. It’s pretty much due to that. It isn’t a conscious decision. Due to proper work I haven’t been in here much recently so I’ll have a poke around and sort it out. Obviously, as I’m sure you can appreciate, we do need some ads to keep the lights on, but we don’t wish to have an overwhelming volume. It isn’t cheap to run a forum of a reasonable size sadly. What I would say is; Tapatalk is a killer for us. We make next to nothing on Tapatalk visits, yet we have still pay for server resources, bandwidth, email notifications etc.
  11. Maps used to be tied to the vehicle, although I seem to recall APR did/do an option where you can transfer the license to a new car?
  12. @[email protected] you're up buddy. @Hopper - Mark will be able to look after you if you're within his operating area if you choose to go ahead.
  13. No idea what yet. I need to drive a few and see if I fancy something a bit older with more go, or something more modern with a little less poke. I really want PDK which, with my budget, limits my options significantly.
  14. The wide-ass low profile tyres on the front are not fun in the snow mate. Consider yourself warned 😂 For winter I’d probably run the straight 235/35/19 setup depending on if your wheels are the same width.
  15. I would love my 6R back for winter. I much, much prefer both the RS3s I've had, but for this nasty weather, performance and comfort, there's little that beats the 6R. Mine was brilliant in the wet & snow. I'm looking at a 911 next year, so may have to seriously consider a cheap 6R (if such a thing exists) as a run about. Also, back on tyres. All the P Zeros I've used have been garbage. I'm a huge fan of Michelin Super Sports, Pilot Sports and Toyo R1Rs. It'll be Michelin Pilot Sport S for me if I change the tyres on my RS3.
