  1. End of the day, you won't get a discount which means you're paying £38,500 for a SEAT which I couldn't justify, given that it won't hold its value as well as a Golf R. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  2. Odd. I contacted VW and they said the three door would still be available. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. They never asked me! [emoji23] Why are they doing an ABT 370 as a £500 option on the Cupra then?[emoji848] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. If you’re on extended service, they won’t change the oil until 20,000 miles or 2 years - whichever comes first. Mine gets done every 10,000 or annually. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I’ve used Rescuemycar.com. Very cheap and good reviews although never had to call them out. National and Home with no excess £31.85. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. How old and how many miles? My R just went through it’s first MOT without even any advisories but thought I’d at least have one on the discs and pads - still plenty of meat on the pads and the discs are fine - 32,000 miles and three years old. Rears tend to go first as the ACC uses them - mine have been replaced last year. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Terrible and tragic news. There’s a time and place - this was neither. I hope the perpetrators get the book thrown at them. RIP.[emoji22] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. It's not SEAT anymore - it's a separate brand I think. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  9. How sad - and no age either.RIP Charlie.[emoji22] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  11. Had the same on a mk1 Leon Cupra R but at 95,000 miles. It was a coil pack so had all of them replaced. Problem solved. My indy diagnosed it straight away so I’m mystified as to why a main dealer is struggling to. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Should I have put this in the Golf Rs spotted thread? https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/teesside-news/live-traffic-updates-boro-fans-15948345
  13. I didn't tick the keyless box when I ordered mine three years ago. Hate it and it's less secure. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  14. Hopefully! [emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Early Rover V8 and last of the line Speed 6 engines have no problems mate. The early Speed 6 engines were problematic as it was a new engine for TVR. Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk
  16. Yup - first thing I did when I picked my car up (three years ago today!) was sit outside and read the section on running in. All sorts of funny burning smells for the first x amount of miles but our fitters said it’s normal as the various metal components are burnishing, expanding and wearing etc to their environment. I always get the oil up to about 85 - 90 Celsius before opening it up. Never had any engine problems using this method - if it’s good enough for a TVR, it’s good enough for my R. The guys trying to debunk these “myths” are tools imo. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  17. They wouldn’t change engine oil and not the filter so why don’t they clean the strainer? Guess they know they can make money from a pump failure. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  18. I’m seriously wondering what the score is with the dealerships. Some only change the oil, some do oil and clean filter, some do that and clean the pump out. Surely there should be a standard, common procedure for Haldex servicing? I’m at a loss as to who ties their shoelaces for them in the morning.[emoji848] Another reason why I go to an independent. They do what I ask plus more. When my indy did my Haldex, they had a look on YouTube as to how it should be done - they also changed my diff oil too. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  19. A sintered one isn’t much more and will take a lot more power. Sintered ones are supposed to be fine weight wise once bedded in - about 500 miles. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  20. Mine’s on 32,000 and no issues. It does get used once the oil is warmed up but I’ve never launched it. It wouldn’t bother me having another manual but my next car might be an auto as manual was never an option on it. Don’t be afraid of having a manual - just factor in a clutch change at some point. You could then go uprated Sachs sintered clutch, up the power and turn the R into the beast it should be now. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. The ones with Ed are much better imo as there’s more oily stuff in those! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. Just watching a program (without Ed China [emoji22]) and they’ve just shown a Dodge Ram SRT 10 truck they’ve worked on. Almost fell off my seat laughing when I saw the leaf springs.........[emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  23. ........and the wad of money you’ve saved against an expensive Merc. I really can’t see how they can justify the prices they charge for the A45 - or the A35 for that matter. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  24. Most people are recorded whilst at work. If they aren’t doing anything wrong then they have no reason to object to being recorded. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  25. That’s a shame mate. Another reason why I refuse to use dealerships and pay over the odds for the privilege of internet and coffee. I use an indy that has manufacturer trained technicians and they do anything extra that I ask. They did my Haldex service last year and cleaned the strainer which some dealerships don’t seem to do - would they change the engine oil but not the filter? Same principle on the Haldex. My indy have saved me a lot of money against dealerships over the years and always use genuine parts. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
