  1. Hi From memory when I installed a set of wingbacks in my MK6 you needed the airbag resistor plugs.. Otherwise you get airbag warning error...

  8. Hi Hugo


    Say.... This cold weather really kills battery cells... Just worth noting though, I understand people suggest getting a replacement with more ampere hours.

    But it physically has to be the same size /dimensions as the old one as it sadly won’t fit..!!

    On another note just had to replace complete Haldex drive at £3130.72... plus labour... 

    Good job it was under warranty..!!!!
