  1. Thanks for all the recommendations. I did try contacting Andrew and this was the response I got back from him: Hi Guy, I’ve done some research and I’d see your car at £40k in the trade. There will be optimistic asking prices but you need to look a little deeper, this car below is a 21 reg with better spec and has just been reduced £2k. It’s been on sale during a busy period and not not sold at the higher prices and its been at £44k for over a month and the market for cars like these doesn’t get any better towards Christmas. It’s been on sale for 58 days in total. Mileag
  2. Stock Exhaust sound pretty good. 3100 for a back box is to much for my liking
  3. Thanks for your advice. Absolutely love the car it's great. Just don't get time or the chance to drive it enough as I am always using my van.
  4. @Booth11 I’m looking for advice on pricing. The market is all over the place at the moment so wanted to get some advice on this. thanks
  5. Hi guys, I am thinking of selling my vw golf r mark 8 2021 plate. Spec as follows: DPB Performance Pack Rear view camera Winter pack (front) DCC I’ve also got a 2 year service plan with it. Only done 650 miles. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
  6. Yes I have fitted the same one from my 7 R in my new 8 R and it has made a huge difference in the throttle response and I would highly recommend it. I initially fitted it by velcro and double sided tape but due the heat we had, it kept falling and was not staying in place. Alternatively, I made an L bracket out of light aluminium and used one of the screws located next to the bonnet lever which holds the dash as well as cable tying the pedal box holder in order to keep it stable and provide more security.
  7. I am sure the non branded will fit give it a go they are cheep anyway
  8. @Booth11 oh no- that's not good! They did send me the 10mm ones and they fitted fine. Might be a one off mistake like you said. The listing does state "10mm ball pin".
  9. It does illuminate but no pulse on 8R
  10. Yes i thought it was for the 8 GTI. Just wanted to be sure
  11. Hi All, Does anyone know how to turn on the pulses on the engine start button for a mark 8 R? I have noticed that mine does not have the heartbeat light effect on. Thanks in advance.
  12. Thanks @Booth11 The Gyeon wax was really easy to apply but as with most waxes it takes a bit of elbow grease to buff off. Let's see how it lasts... The difference with the pedal box is like day and night just like it was on the mark 7...
  13. Finally got around to finishing my cars full detail. Will be putting on my Estorils tomorrow- got my wheels from my mark 7 R on for the time being. Didn't opt for a ceramic coating this time around. Instead will be topping it up with a wax more frequently. Used the following products Car: Valet Pro PH Neutral Snow foam EZ Car Care GTR- Glue & Tar remover GTECHNIQ W6 Iron and General Fallout Remover Meguiars Gold Class Shampoo (2 bucket wash) Menzerna Super Finish High Gloss 3500 Polish using Das 6 Pro DA Meguiars Gold Class Shampoo (2 b
  14. @Booth11 I am just in the middle of taking my wheels off my car so I can ceramic coat them. Will appreciate it if you could post it up in there. Thank you!
