    Mapping question / damage to Cat

    MRC wouldn't do this if it was an issue. I quizzed them over this when my car was mapped and the response from Doug was that they wouldn't want to have hundreds of Golf Rs returning to them in a few years with knackered cats. It's a standard feature, just enhanced. Don't worry 👍

    Option 2
  3. Hi all, I'm after a wooden bed frame for the spare room, any recommendations please? There are so many on the internet but I want to get something of decent quality. I'm considering this from Ikea but the price seems to good to be true! https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/beds/double-king-size-beds/tarva-bed-frame-pine-leirsund-spr-39031128/ Thanks!
  4. Hi all, We are looking to purchase a brand new Ford Transit at work. The van would have to be a factory order due to being a LWB Extended Frame plus other options. Can anyone recommend where to get quotes from apart from our local dealers please? Perhaps some brokers that deal with vans? Thanks!

    MRC Stage 1

    I have an MRC stage 1 map and I'm very happy too. Great figures there!
  6. Are they switchable @EcosseGolfR? Mine are only active in sport
  7. I had pops and bangs added when MRC mapped my car with Stage 1 software. Apart from the BCS res delete the exhaust system is completely standard and they are surprisingly loud!

    DSG Gearbox tune with Stage 1 remap

    I am MRC Stage 1 with APR TCU Software and I'm happy!
  9. Hi all, I noticed this evening that my passenger seat has a snag in it, likely from a friend over the weekend! As you can see from the photo not only do I have four little tags of thread, you can also see where the thread/s have been pulled. What would the best way to fix this? Even if I was able to push the snags back into the seat this would only fix half the problem. I guess my only options are either a new seat cover from VW (££?) or trying to source an equally perfect condition / low mileage seat? Thanks

    The Quick Question Topic - Part 2

    When putting a DSG car back into park from sport, should the revs stay at the higher sport idle? Or drop down to the normal drive idle? Thanks

    OBD Eleven in Hereford / Worcester?

    Anyone near me? Thanks
  12. Hi all, I have been out in a friends R that has Stage 1 remap and gearbox software, When underload in D the gearchanges feel very harsh, almost like a missfire. Is this normal? How do the APR changes feel compared to standard? Thanks

    BCS Powervalve resonator delete

    My res delete arrived on Monday and I had it fitted the same day, again, as everyone else has said, what an awesome modification. Really makes the car sound as it should from the factory, I was actually surprised how loud it's made it, plenty loud enough for me! Lovely pur on tickover too, especially with the valves open. Thanks Nige!

    Stock R recommend mods

    Sorry I meant to link the turbo muffler there rather than the elbow twice https://www.racingline.com/vwr16g7del

    Golf 7.5r & dsg 7: buying advice

    I think you need to drive both to make your mind up. 7.5 DSG software is limited at the moment, I know Unicorn and TVS Engineering can do it, I think MRC have also cracked it too.
