  1. £35?? That’s good! What time length is that over, how many services etc? Did you negotiate that with a salesman or do it online? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. I reckon the nine speed gearbox helps on the C43! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Enjoyed reading that mate. Ironically, I was watching more videos on the 340i and C43, albeit, I’m looking at secondhand coupes as no kids. I’ve also looked at mpg and it doesn’t seem too bad and also servicing costs. Expensive if you pay at each service but works out cheaper if you buy a service plan. Aside from the lovely V6 noise that attracted me to it, (sports exhaust is standard on the coupe) the interior, imo, is one of the best out there. The screen isn’t overly large and the clarity, background honeycomb texture and range of options look fantastic on the virtual dashboard. What I also like is the fact that the steering wheel is lifted straight from the more expensive C63 and little things like the range of ambient light colours you can change. The whole mmi tech and quality of the interior really appeals to me, especially as my job is more physical now so after a day up and down ladders and zipping my crane between sites, I’d look forward to sinking into that sumptuous interior and cruising home - I’m looking at Premium Plus models so the Burmester sound and extra silver highlights that it brings lifts an already quality interior. I need to drive one and compare it to an RS3 saloon and M340i. I’d be looking at a 2018 RS3 so I think the facelift C43 is a much more modern car in many respects - especially as I’ve seen one or two with AMG grille conversions that raise it further. Enjoyed the read mate - and I’d be interested in your mpg although probably not a true indication at the mo as you’re running in. Glad you like the car! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  5. If the PCD (distance between the holes on the wheel) is the same then no reason why not. I’m guessing offset wouldn’t be a problem. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. £55k?? For a Peugeot?? Christ - VW will be charging £40k for a Golf next! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Different class of car though. I’d take it over a Fiesta I reckon. I think it’ll be great fun, given how fat and bloated hot hatches have become. Problem is, we’re spoiled by technology now - my first hot hatch, an XR3i, had none of this tech - no adaptive dampers and not even power steering but it was great fun to drive. Same as when I was a child - if you needed more room, you bought an estate - people carriers didn’t exist and don’t get me started on SUVs. Horrible, barges that lots of people seem to have a penchant for. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Mine started slipping at around 37,000 or 39,000 - can’t remember exactly. Mine’s stock and doesn’t get launched so no high revs and sudden dumping of the clutch. The clutch is just garbage. I had a Sachs organic fitted and it’s much better. Heavy at first but much better after running in. Now, I don’t even notice it and there’s no judder either. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  10. I see VW are joining other manufacturers by being tightwads and not even fitting a space saver spare. Is one even an option? I’ve not heard good things about these tyre foam kits etc. What are you supposed to do if you get a puncture and the kit actually gets you home? We all know that getting a replacement tyre will take a few days at least so what do you do in the interim? I had an alloy refurbished a while ago so I could run about on the space saver at least.

  11. Given that a lot of demonstrators seem to be shod with Bridgestones, I’m wondering if that’s what the cause of the traction light is. I had a SEAT with Bridgestones - shocking traction plus axle tramp. Changed them for Goodyears and problem solved. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  13. Depends where you live mate. I live right on the edge of the Cotswolds so there’s some great roads about plus my commute to work is part B road. Congested, town roads make up a tiny proportion of my driving and at the moment, it’s only due to street lights being replaced. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. What about expensive, baggy leather on a mk7?[emoji1787] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Look forward to it! Now that lockdown is easing, I can start doing some test drives. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
