  1. Really slow response in long coding

    My Wi-fi router is at the front of my house and my car parks on the drive about 7 feet away.. I have fibre broadband with a 6MB upload speed and I cannot use that connection to make long coding changes.... instead I share my phone’s 4G connection and it works every time [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Exhaust Valves Stuck Open

    Morning. After you code them active again you need to let the car sit for a while with the ignition off. I.e. lock it and go and have a cup of tea. Next time it starts up they should be working again 👍
  3. Hi Lawrie,

    I am a new member and also new to VW cars. I have a Tiguan 2015 and have a OBDeleven Pro version. I have successfully done some coding (mirror folding, needle sweep...). Now I want to have 4 (5) brake light (inner tail light as brake light), but I can not access the search screen for adaptation (general electrics) in order to go for Leuchte23 and Leuchte24 (when I touch adaptation, I could only go to the screen with the box for enter channels).

    Could you tell me how to go to search screen from adaptation screen in control module general electric? Thank you.

  4. 2017 Lease Deals

    That’s true [emoji1360]

    Better to get the tourer as it has 4WD
  6. 2017 Lease Deals

    Prices are high at the moment. Too high. This is slightly better, but still not great: https://www.contracthireandleasing.com/independent-brokers/leasehub/volkswagen/golf/246420086/
  7. Mileage check

    Yes. VWFS often offer you a revised price for the rest of the term if you’re much over or under your mileage. Often generous terms.

    I understand that but there’s no guarantee prices will fall. Many people seem to think that amazing deals are right around the corner, but if you look back through the forum you’ll see that they’ve been saying that for 6 months. My advice is that if you can find a DSG deal with decent mileage for between £4,000 - £4,500 per year you should probably take it.

    Nope... I included the admin fee. 336.49 x 35 = £11,777.15 Add 6 months initial of £2,018.94 Add Admin fee including VAT of £360 Total = £14,156.09 over three years. Divide by 36 = £393.22 Not sure what you did, perhaps you included 36 monthly rentals. I think this is about as good a deal as you can get right now and is less than the depreciation you’d suffer if buying. My first 7R lease was £265 per month with 10k miles but those deals aren’t around anymore. You have to take what is available.

    I make it £393.22 per month My current Mk7 R lease (66 plate DSG with metallic) works out at £350 per month over two years for 8k miles. It was the best deal around at the time and prices quickly went up. This isn’t too far off it.
  11. 2017 Lease Deals

    This is a three year deal. It’s only £390 per month which I though was pretty good.... given it’s a Mk7.5 DSG with 10k per annum mileage allowance
  12. Manual 'kickdown' pedal in Eco = Fun

    When I had a 2015 manual R I used individual mode like you describe above to turn off the soundaktor on the motorway. If I wanted to close a gap or increase speed quickly I always pushed past the switch as there was clearly more power. I thought it was the exhaust valves opening but I've later been told that eco mode runs much lower boost and pushing past the kickdown switch gives you normal boost, which is why you notice such a difference. There is talk of there being a 50bhp difference.
  13. How do you explain the mileage remaining in the tank?
  14. That's a GTD. The remaining range gives the game away.
  15. 300 motorway miles. 5 in the car, boot full of heavy luggage/booze, massive roofbox... 95-100 mph all the way with foot hard down passing the fast lane crawlers when they move over. Can't believe I got 300 miles from one tank!
