  1. Yup - and for me, paying over £400 p/m isn’t my cup of tea and as you said, ETTO. There’s no argument for my situation. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. I’ll be honest - I’ve not heard of them.[emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. [emoji15] Couldn’t stomach those payments and have nothing at the end. More than the monthlies on my R. I guess time has moved on though. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  5. I got Racingline pipes as part of the brake”kit” I bought. Opened the pack and they were marked up as Goodridge![emoji2369][emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Same with mine. Mine has DCC, Pretorias, Dynaudio, winter pack, Discover Pro, darker tints, Lapiz blue. It also has a new clutch, thermostat done, service history and uprated brakes plus it’s been mine from new. 40,000 miles. I’d advertise mine for between £20k and £21k. Some would say that’s too high, as would many people looking but you’ll find that one person who’ll see that it’s not had multiple owners, the known defects have been attended to so will save them a couple of thousand - when compared to other cars, it’s a cracking car.....imo!

  7. I went one stage further and fitted Clubsport S Discs, Ferodo DS2500 pads and Racingline braided pipes. All together, the set up completely changed the feel of the brakes - much more effective and confidence inspiring. Be aware that the pads aren’t road legal - tbh, it’s just numbers as they fall out of the braking window but on the upper scale! They’re certainly not less effective than the standard pads, even when cold. I’m pleased with it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Did it years ago on my XR3i. Only extra tool I needed was an impact driver to loosen the locating grub screw. Took no time at all. Did it on nights in the hangar when I was stationed at Brize Norton![emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. This backs up what I and others have said about VW dealerships. Find yourself a good independent. My front brakes didn’t get changed until into my fourth year - they seemed to last well. I’d be inclined to get some Clubsport S Discs and pads if you can afford to. Bit more pricey but they perform better and look better - plus the hubs don’t rust. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. The R will easily take a stage 1. Just be sure you warm everything up properly before using it. I do with mine anyway and it’s stock. Get the oil up to around 80 degrees. Also, ensure the car is warmed down after a hard drive - a few minutes idling or pootling in traffic will suffice. It’ll let the oil circulate, let the turbo wind down and eliminate any hot spots. Tunes from APR, MRC and Revo are generally highly regarded and you’ll probably want a DSG map done too. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. VW have financial issues mate. It’s no surprise that they’ve increased the cost of their cars and extras whilst cutting corners on quality and they seem to fight every warranty claim. I’m done with them tbh. Dick Turpin had more scruples imo. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Tbh, aside from the Subaru Boxer engine and the old mk1 and 2 Escorts, no four cylinder engine sounds good. The old Fiat Super Mirafiori four pot sounded good too. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  14. What a shower of [emoji90]. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. I think places like WBAC etc are trying to buy stock at low prices as due to lockdown, they’ll have to hold on to cars for a while until lockdown is lifted and they can sell at a decent profit. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
