    Pure Water Final Rinse

    How would pure water and a brush method work on our cars? Badly. You’re comparing cleaning glass with cleaning automotive paintwork. A brush would be a recipe for horrors! Soap or no soap!

    What did you do to your R today?

    Drove it to Yorkshire (yesterday). My hosts are less than impressed!

    Why does Start/Stop get so much hate?

    If you’ve got obdeleven pro, then coding is here. Same for 7 and 7.5.

    Water Ingress - Is This Normal?

    It’s entirely normal. It gathers on lower sills and around door frames and B pillar. And on door shuts. Just towel dry as part of your normal routine. Same with tailgate. Open boot and let excess water run off then towel dry all around.

    OBD Eleven - The Basics

    Yes, the Pro is the one to get, so you can do long coding adaptations. So yes, you need the Pro pack too.

    When I got got mine, there was a choice of excess, £250, £100 or No excess. The quote for all component cover with £250 excess was £230 but I decided to go for the £100 option for extra £50. I didn’t find out the no excess price.

    No, I bought it just before the factory warranty ran out, on 26 Sept this year. Although I’ve had a few VWs, I’ve only ever had one extended warranty before on a mk5 GTI and that was also purchased as the factory warranty was about to expire. I don’t buy them at same time as the car as I usually change cars every 3 years, unless it’s such a good car I want to keep it as was case with the mk5 GTI and is definitely the case with the 7R.

    It was a good price! £277 for All component cover. I’m not a high miler though.

    Forget Autosol! 😁 Mothers Mag and Aluiminim Polish is far better. I binned my Autosol after buying a pot of this a few years back. Never looked back, swear by it. It says not for use on chrome on the pot but been using it on chrome tailpipes for years and it’s superb. Loads of other info in the detailing section on cleaning tailpipes too. Everyone has their favourite things! https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mothers-Mag-Aluminium-Polish-5oz/dp/B00068GEJM/ref=sr_1_1/257-1289416-4488135?ie=UTF8&qid=1540140793&sr=8-1&keywords=mothers+mag+and+aluminium+polish

    I am. From Halifax/Brighouse. My parents are live just outside of Huddersfield (Almondbury) now so I’m headed up to see them, though I stay in a cottage (rented) on a farm near Holmfirth. A week of good driving ahead!

    Engine noise after turn off

    Normal. Recently described by Bob on here as having R2D2 living under the bonnet which sums it up perfectly!

    What did you do to your R today?

    Washed it ready for a trip home to West Yorkshire tomorrow Citrus pre wash to clear bug splatter and loose muck. All done and ready for more bug slaying!
