    Wing mirrors

    Is the window selector switch on "heater"? I normally have mine on left to use the dip on reverse function. Usually forget to switch over to heat... and then back to dip when parking. Such a goofy design. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Intake stickers

    Yup. I have 3 out of 5 on there. Looks OEM-ish.

    Intake stickers

    Each sticker has a part number on it. You can order from a dealer or e-acca. Most of them are reasonably priced. There are two that are "special" relating to emissions and cost an arm and a leg. These you can only get them from a dealer as they often want your VIN number. This is for a Canadian vehicle.

    Pedal box with stage 1 or 2

    I'm stage 2 ECU/TCU. Recently added the pedalbox+. No issues like you describe. Much better throttle response now though. The stage 2 alone had more power as expected but the pedal responsiveness was still not very sporty.
  5. The car is actually pretty good in stock form at the track. Yes, you can upgrade all the various bits and make it better. It is a slippery slope. However, it doesn't take much to make it fun and reliable. Agree, the brakes are one of the first things to look at. In addition to stuff already mentioned you should look at the RS3 front ducts. Cheap, easy instal and helps keep the temps down. More front camber (e.g. camber plates) will help prolong tire life and improve front grip. The ESP is not very intrusive and is a good safety net. I just leave it on. Might be more of an issue on tighter courses and powering out of corners. The driver aids can get a bit confused. I've had the pre-collision activate while following another car into a braking zone. However, I usually forget to turn them off for each session.
  6. I've been looking into this as well for a stage 2 setup. Will go with the NGK RS7 plugs. Based on various posters there were some failures relating to Beru branded RS7 plugs. Possibly a bad batch as not everyone has had issue with them either. NGK seems to be the trend on the forums. Here are the OEM part numbers: 06K 905 601M - (NGK) 079 905 626M - (Beru) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Dashcam and 12v socket problems

    The new charger might not have enough oomph for the dash cam. Check the mA output rating to see if it is enough. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Vbox or Draggy ?

    I have the VBOX but don't really know much about draggy. It is pricy but works very well. There are iPhone apps (not sure about android). The main reason I got it at the time was for the 20Hz GPS (compared to the 1Hz in the iPhone). I use it with the Harry's Laptimer app on track days and the data resolution is really good. Supports an external GPS antenna so you can mount the unit anywhere. I guess it depends on how you want to use it.

    Clubsport Brakes

    Thanks. I don't want to spread incorrect info. I'm just starting to figure out what to replace my rotors/pads with. How are the front CS pads for noise?

    Clubsport Brakes

    I though the rear rotors were the same but the pad compound was different. This is the part number from another thread apparently for the rear CS pads... 5G0698451.

    Drive shaft knock?

    If it is the half-shaft making contact with something then there should be circumferential marks on it from rotation. I can't really see any in the above pic (maybe just not visible there). Otherwise the contact is likely happening somewhere else.

    6 L will trigger the overfilled warning?

    Odd given it is a German car and they work in metric over there. Maybe ROW accommodate the full 6 liters? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Just go straight to the V12 version feel... https://youtu.be/1RZwwYXNzgM Since the sound is simulated why couldn't VW give us the option to choose the engine type? It would be fun to chose right from the screen. How hard could it be to hack the soundaktor file anyways... hmmm...

    Snowflake chime disable

    I've searched but have not found anything on this. I would like to decrease the volume or disable the chime for the outside temperature warning. Don't mind the visual snowflake alert. The chime normally startles me and can go off several times on the same drive as the temperature hovers around the trigger point. Very annoying. All I have found is that it is a safety feature and cannot be disabled. This despite being able to disable the seat belt chime and alter a number of systems / features that are safety related. I don't even want to totally disable it: maybe a lower volume or only 1 ping per trip?

    APR Stage 2 Released!

    The NA cars will apparently only have direct injection not the dual system (direct and multiport) found in Europe. I suspect this would have an impact on the tuning... and carbon build-up.
