  1. 2 questions... 1. If I plan to fit 13mm spacers front and 16mm rear, what bolts and lockers do I need? 2. Is there a res-delete or something that fits WLTP cars to make it any louder?
  2. Good to be back. Yeh. Love the colour and all the black bits. Yeh. Got all that. Dunno if you saw my other post about the mode settings but in this one you don't get much noise unless you're in full on race mode. Kind of you to offer. May take you up on that! Assuming you still have yours? Is it a track monster yet?
  3. Do you want to fit some spacers for me? 😂
  4. 7.5R Agree. Race mode with Sport gearbox is very different than setting everything to race in Individual and selecting S. I don't get any DSG farts or pops/bangs unless I am in Race mode. It's very annoying as I come from a MK7 with everything set to Race and then just flick between D & S when I wanted.
  5. @Starnzy There is definitely a difference in the gearbox selection between Normal & Race mode. In mine, if I have the Drive Mode in NORMAL / ECO but I put the Gearbox into Sport I do not get a DSG fart or any pops/bangs/overrun. However, if I have the Drive Mode in RACE with the gearbox in Sport I DO get DSG fart and pop/bang/overrun. Quite frustrating if you want to run the car in Individual and just toggle the gearbox as you'll miss out on the noises. I've not noticed a difference when the gearbox is in Drive when toggling between driver modes. I wonder if they mapped Race differently to the others.
  6. hmmmmm seems like on the 7.5 you get a LC active message which I haven't had. Done everything as I would have done in the older one and no go. Will try again later on and see what happens. Cheers
  7. Yeh. Seen that. Which is what confused me as mine wouldn't push past the soft limiter of 2k. Probably didn't have something engaged so will try again later.
  8. Bit of a weird one with launch control. Got a 69-plate R. Trying to launch it now that it's run in after being sat on drive for weeks!.. Mode in Race Gearbox in Sport TC - Fully Off Hold brake, press accelerator. Car only seems to rev to 2000 and when you lift off the brake doesn't really do anything. On my old R it would rev to 3.5k and then when you lifted brake would go. Do these new R's have launch control?
  9. Not detailed and WLTP so a bit crap on the sounds. Specs wise it has basically everything except performance pack and DynAudio. I found my Rupes the other day, no pads. No idea where my wheel woolies went so might be a while before it gets a proper clean! First decision is trying to decide between Carista and something else to get rid of that silly soundaktor noise!
  10. Have updated the post with missing images. They're now hosted on the forum so they shouldn't disappear again.
  11. You’re right. It does. Speed doesn’t kill, inappropriate speed does. The government and Police need to end their war on speeding and start focusing on other areas of driving. Things like tailgating, red light jumping and phone use are still out of control yet go unpunished. I’ve got an email from the Head of my local roads team basically telling me that punishing people for driving through red lights is too difficult so they don’t do it and focus on speed. Pathetic. It drives me absolutely potty that there are people out there who think all speed is bad. We’ll all be criminals in the future with artificially low limits and the instant torque of electric vehicles. yay!
  12. Yep. Got my R in March 2016 and had my first 3 points by May 2016. Got done for 48 in a 30 which at the time was just under the threshold for 3 points and £100 fine. In reality, I probably deserved to go to court but I'm thankful for my 3 points!! Nothing since but I have had a few scares and been waiting for the dreaded NIP through the post. Speeding is just an easy money maker so I don't expect anything to change, it's only going to get worse.
  13. Report it to the police. Then use the CAD number in your reply to Dart Charge and any future charges or fines. You need to get it reported ASAP as it could be something like cloning to avoid fines or something more sinister like using the car for violent crimes such as armed robbery and murder. By getting it reported if any violent crimes do take place you’re less likely to get hard stopped or a nice early morning wake up call with police smashing your doors in. Sometimes the Police will ask you to make your vehicle different. So something like a sticker that’s big enough to be spotted by cameras is a good call. For example, if your car is white, a black sticker of sorts near the number plates would work. Keep the sticker close to the plates so any cameras aimed at number plates will see it.
