    Cost of Stage 1 & Uprated Clutch?

    Heavier than normal Dave but from what I’ve read within the forum, it beds in well and isn’t actually too heavy. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    After about 500 miles, the sintered one beds in well as far as I know and loosens up nicely. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Forget the organic - go sintered. It’s not much more and you can run a high torque map on it. I don’t think the organic is much better than the standard one but I may be wrong. The sintered is good for about 600 BHP I think. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Turbo

    What car do you have and what age/year is it? Has your turbo let go? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Car insurance

    The benefits of allegedly being old (48[emoji23]) - I’ve just done a quote and it’s come to £232, fully comp, protected NCD, courtesy car, legal protection and personal accident cover! Can’t argue with that! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    No Golf R on VW Website

    Nothing wrong with the mk7. I actually prefer the analogue dials on the 7. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    No Golf R on VW Website

    Yup - been like this for ages. You can price one up on Drive the Deal though - just no pictures. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    We buy any car

    No harm in trying private mate. I was offered £18,800 from VW for my 2016 3 door manual, lapiz, Dynaudio, dcc, Pretorias, darker tints, tech and winter packs. Not even anywhere close to what it's worth private. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk

    jb4 TB1 at dealer ?

    Guess he’ll have to swallow that then. VW are quite within their rights to refuse replacement. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    MPG (yes this again, but slightly different)

    On my journey to my previous place of work, I’d get anywhere between 22 and 47. 22 when fun driving, 47 when stuck behind a truck doing 50! Generally though, I’d average 34 - 37 - hardly any hills and using cruise with individual mode set at Eco. Last week, I only got 27 but I was on and off the gas, hilly etc. I’m using a different route to work which will be A and B roads plus dual carriageway so I’ll see how that goes.

    Stoptech 340/30 grooved discs

    The Tarox F2000 discs are supposed to be good. I looked at EBC two piece floating discs but they’re pretty expensive. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Weird noise/humming at 115-120km/h

    Also, I think winter tyres have a more aggressive tread pattern so they’ll probably make more noise. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I reckon it’s your tyres mate. I had this with my PS4S tyres. Had it at certain speeds but the noise would stop if I changed speed. It shouldn’t be a wheel bearing at that age but if you jack the car up, grab the wheel at the quarter to three position and try to move it, any play will be evident when you try to wobble the wheel.

    Mk7 price

    I could be biased as I have a three door manual though! [emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Mk7 price

    About right I’d say. The three door increases its “rarity” factor for want of a better word! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  19. I’ve seen a few M240 M Performance limited edition models but none have the adaptive suspension. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  20. I’ve had my eye on them and seen one or two around that money but I’ve been watching a few and the prices on those haven’t dropped in months. I think the dealerships are being a little unrealistic! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. One thing with the first gen M2 is the poor suspension. The 240 is almost as quick as the M2, cheaper to buy and probably a better everyday car - plus Motech do some good aftermarket stuff for them. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. I can’t remember tbh mate - it was a hire car and my back was in bits after a drive to Southampton and back. The Hyundai i30 I had the following week was far more comfortable! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  23. Good luck on the prices coming down! They’re not moving much on the older M2s but I think some BMW dealerships are being arrogant over prices. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  24. I’m toying with an M240i because A) I’m a bit disillusioned with VW at the moment and the 140 is just butt ugly - plus I found the seating position in the ordinary 120d bloody awful although I’m not sure how close to the 140 the seating position is - I’m just getting the urge for a six pot engine as I don’t think they’ll be around for long. It’s a pity I can’t find a 240 with adaptive dampers as I know the M suspension of old was pretty poor but I’ll have to test drive one to see. I think the 8 speed auto might suit the 240 better than the manual though. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Sad story, but am I missing something here?

    But is this definitely him though? I’ve lost count of how many times the media have got it wrong. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
