  1. 20” wheels don’t help it as an everyday car I’m thinking. You can get an alternative version with a less prominent wing and 19” wheels. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. I was in the desert in 2001 - Christmas Eve - 30C, Christmas Day 45C. Zero humidity though so quite bearable! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Mine’s nine months old and has it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  5. I saw something in my settings which alters the alert etc. Tbh, it’s not too intrusive and the indicators negate the system - must be a conspiracy to get Beemer drivers to use their indicators.[emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. I think my BMW is the same but I’d have to check. You might find it’s down to legislation so not a trait unique to the 8R. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I thought that with the old V8 and V10 F1 cars that revved to 17,000. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Never heard such a load of old b#####ks. Yes, it won’t feel as sharp in the same way my mk7 wasn’t as sharp as my Cupra 280 but it’s hardly a bin wagon. [emoji348][emoji773] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. This is true! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. People and dealers are asking £48k to £50k for two and three year old examples of the saloon model which is just stupid. I think anyone who buys one at that price is a fruitcake tbh! Couldn’t justify that sort of money for an older car, especially as the new model is about to land which starts at similar money. I would say it’s a lot of car for the money but some of them are basic spec cars so nowhere near worth it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. There’s a lot of crashed/repaired ones out there too so buy wisely! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. This looks like just the job! 7 to 8 mm thick too.[emoji106] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. [emoji1787] Wondered how quick you’d be to reply.[emoji1787] I looked at the small wheel woolie and it’s 25 mm diameter. There’s literally a gap of about 5 mm tops so I’m not sure it would fit. I think I might have to do what @JonSW suggested and move the car a small distance to rotate the wheels. That way, I can get to the dirty part of the wheel but still won’t reach the caliper. OCD kicks in![emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I’ve got a decent set of wheel brushes plus a wheel mitt from WoWo which I had for my R. Between these items, wheel cleaning was never an issue. Whilst my 440 has the same size wheels as the R, (19”) the brake calipers are considerably bigger. As a consequence, there’s virtually no space between the caliper and the wheel. Is there anything anybody knows off to fit this gap? The gap is literally millimetres. Tia. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. I had a Sachs organic fitted to my mk7 when I had it. It felt virtually OEM after running in and it was good for 407lbs/ft. I was going to have an RTS fitted but VRS stopped doing them between them telling me they fitted them and me deciding to go for it. They’d had nothing but problems with cars coming back with problem clutches which they had to sort at their own expense and those cars taking up workshop space. I don’t know about Helix but Sachs is a well known brand, tried and tested, and the name virtually speaks for itself. Never had issues with mine. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
