  1. Just search Ebay, loads of suppliers.
  2. Had this when I had a new bumper fitted, luckily I tested the washers before accepting the car back - took the body shop 5 mins to fix, they just said there was an airlock in the washer pipe. Not sure what they did but nothing electrical was connected, guessing they just removed the pipework from the nearside washer and pulled the stalk till the water flowed.
  3. I appreciate the potential issues but actually asked if anyone had indeed explored this offering - I had an ODB tuning unit on my Diesel Octavia VRS a few years ago, it was a pucka unit with 3 custom maps plus the standard one, any of which could be loaded to suit the need - Track Day, Standard, Fast Road or Service. ECUs have got more secure these days so such units are not available for new cars, it just looks as though someone may have found a way of simply interrupting the ECU signals via the ODB port which is an intreeging thought but I have no knowledge if it is possible and safe so I asked the font of all knowledge - the forum
  4. Intrigued by this Polish offering but very suspicious, has anyone looked into or tried on of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UK-OBD2-V3-Chip-VW-Golf-VII-2-0-R-4motion-300HP-Performance-Tuning-Soft-19-20/233084578924?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3Db2b52f1268a94f169e2f8300dba0a965%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D292282243995%26itm%3D233084578924&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507 The gains claimed are not spectacular but the ease of fitting attractive
  5. Thanks Guys, could not find answer with search
  6. Currently many new cars come with KESSY as standard, is there any way on a Golf R to effectively turn it off and revert to normal key based entry and start. The reason for thinking about this to to ensure that my new Golf can not be stolen using the relay method as it now seem that even a protective pouch does not provide guaranteed protection against a relay theft. Or how do KESSY owners render their car theft proof.
  7. Look through the Haldex Dirty Filter thread - full details on servicing there - not too difficult, DSG is much more complex but there should be a thread on here somewhere, use the search option.
  8. Just a note in my car I had to put the SD card in slot 1 - put it in slot 2 first and the unit could not find the maps.
  9. Depends on you internet speed and your PC but best allow a couple of hours or so
  10. Be aware that it takes a long time to complete the download and then for the app to copy to your card and it iwll use all your band width while downloading so be patient and start the process when you have no other need for the computer
  11. I originally did this in my Octavia but have also done the same in my MK7 GTI and R - gives you the ability to plug 3 cigy connectors/power supplies in the drivers cubby hole and saves keep having to access the fuse box if you change your gadgets. https://www.briskoda.net/forums/topic/294828-fitting-a-multiway-cigy-adapter-to-a-mk3-octavia/?tab=comments#comment-3503455
  12. Given the EU does not want us to leave and loose our 'contributions' I would not expect them to ????????????? - try and make our useless parliament stop us leaving...................
  13. Yes, £99 plus VAT so £108.80 in total.
  14. Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure - Google is your friend
  15. Is the rest of the centre cap still in the wheel - that looks like it has just separated from the 'push-in' part. If so either stick it back on with epoxy or similar or pull the rest of the cap out of the wheel and buy a replacement. What you picture is not a standard or complete centre cap.
