  1. Update! Been told I’m now in remission! I now start my next round of chemo tomorrow - mon to fri every week for four weeks so my hair will probably go for a Burton and I’ll probably feel sh#t for a while but it’ll be worth it!! [emoji123][emoji123][emoji123] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Went today - there was a nice 1950s Jag there. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Had this on a Leon - fine when driving like a granny, spluttering etc if I tried giving it some. It was a coil pack so I had the lot changed and it was fine. If one has gone, then you can bet your bottom dollar another will follow so I changed the lot. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. What irks me about this is that I could spend £40k on a decent clean car and pay all that VED and be sat at the traffic lights behind some shed of a diesel that’s 20 years old and chucking out blue smoke, choking me half to death - and he’s paying less VED - this has actually happened apart from the bit about the £40k car - where’s the justice in that?

  5. Whilst the clutch might not be an issue, is there any danger of the flywheel being damaged by hammering through the gears? I’m on 37,000 miles now and not had any issues albeit the car is standard - I know other people have had clutch issues with the standard car but mine seems to be bucking the trend.

  6. What you’ve discovered is that it’s Rice mode not Race mode - or is Rice the Midland pronunciation for Race? [emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. My sister’s got a new Peugeot - it has touch screen controls for the fans, heaters and air con - my mk7 has some simple rotary dials and buttons - which I much prefer! I’m in 100% agreement with you - touchscreens are distracting and it IS getting ridiculous! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. I don’t get overly excited by the AMG V8s tbh because nothing sounds nicer than the V8 in a BOSS 429 super cobra jet or a 426 Hemi Challenger from the 60s/70s. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Mine’s over three years old. Not a single rattle. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. They tested the A45S in the latest EVO and one of the complaints was..........the squeaks and rattles from the interior. It got four and a half stars. My car is over three years old and hasn’t got a single rattle. I had a Dynaudio speaker replaced under warranty as it was resonating slightly but that’s it. When you weigh up what a complete package the R is, I can’t see anything I’d want in its place. Even a brand new A35 couldn’t out run mine. But as said before, the A45 is a different hatch - you’d compare it with an RS3 or something similar - and I still wouldn’t take one of those over my R either! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Not worried about the clutch as I’ll probably upgrade to a Sachs sintered one anyway and they’re supposed to be good for 600BHP. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. That’s pretty poor on their part. I’m toying with doing a tune - I might go MRC - it’s not the first time I’ve heard of problems with APR but others seem to have no problems. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. I’m torn where to go tbh. I hear good things about VRS but on the other hand, I’m almost walking distance from MRC but I don’t know anyone who’s got an MRC tune. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I'll need to change my clutch too as I have a MANual gearbox.......(awaits incoming fire.....)[emoji23] Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  15. I’m setting myself a little goal for when I beat my cancer by treating myself to a tune. I’m only going to go stage 1 as I think it offers the best bang for my buck and stage 2 seems expensive for not much more gain. Is the stage 1 purely an ECU flash or is actual hardware involved such as intake etc? If it is only an ECU flash, will I gain more by fitting hardware such as a different intake and the like? I’m thinking of going the APR route via VRS Northampton. All advice welcome! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
