  1. Don’t ask don’t get... [emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Indeed. A little disappointing. I May have a little moan about that - I think them swapping it for an akra exhaust is the only way I could forgive them now.... [emoji102][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Oh really, how come? They look the same as the mk7 which I thought did? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Seems to be a lot more thought gone into the mk7.5 aero. The front ducts actually draw more air into the side rads cf the mk7 subtle but nice detail [emoji106] Rear diffuser seems to be tighter to the exhausts but might just be me.. tips also don’t seem to be fully on which is tempting me to remove them to see what it looks like Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Perfect weather for it today [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. For those waiting here is how they sound on idle and a few revs whilst warm. Did swap between normal and race but besides the valves opening I couldn’t tell the difference in noise from the exhaust. https://youtu.be/y0HWfN8X8sE Here is my old mk7 for comparison although it was run in when the vid was taken.

  7. Did a little exhaust clip today. Just a quickie with idle and a few revs. Did switch between normal and race but I couldn’t hear a change in the exhaust - just heard the flaps open but no exhaust noise change that I could tell. Still only on around 200 odd miles though... https://youtu.be/y0HWfN8X8sE Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Can you still get these from vw? Wonder what the price comparison is with recaro sportster cs... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. They are used to adjust the sound/volume of the exhaust. You can make them be open or closed depending upon whether you want them to be open or closed. ?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Put it in race mode and just flick the gearbox back to D to cycle out of S. Sound etc will still be in race but gearbox won’t be. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. On point 2 yes. When the map is showing there is a north point symbol or a rocket sorta symbol too right sorta area from memory. That cycles between the map just showing north to top of screen and it rotating to the direction you are travelling along the map. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Personally I think there is a balance to be struck and VW got it pretty good with the R, well apart from the sound being a bit, er, underwhelming (note sound not volume!). Love the stealth look but whilst I wouldn’t want to go with the body kit option myself (too far that way for me) I also would t want to go too far in the other direction either - too stealthy is just boring [emoji23] That being said there is an element of fun to be had by catching someone unsuspectingly with your “looks like an SE, when it’s actually an R” golf [emoji106][emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I was expecting mine to be bad to begin with, as my mk7 was, but my mk7.5 is at the same sorta range when running in as my mk7 was when fully bedded in... its certainly seems to be better than my mk7 was at similar miles - seems to be louder too! 380 miles total range indicated - my mk7 was sub 300 when running in and sub 320 when run in so better for sure so far although still very early days [emoji23] That being said I am looking forward to being able to it actually being run in so I can really use it again....

  14. Oddly enough I was thinking mine was sounding more grunty than my mk7 did. Mine is only on 200 miles but I was expecting far worse than it has been sounding so far. Still need to get a video done but as it’s still running in the video will be a little dull [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yeah I see your point. Up to vw to sort it out with their customer first and foremost and then it’s up to vw to claim it back off the delivery company. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
