  1. Get the Remus system if you want something quality. I have it on my 7 and it's awesome, plus there is a remote to open and close the valves, so none of that annoying droning on highways
  2. Definitely notice the difference in ride comfort, steering stiffness, engine note etc. I switch between comfort, race and individual (which is basically set up as race, but with comfort steering and normal suspension) and works fine on my local village lanes. My favourite spec choice, along with reverse cam (for my estate)
  3. Rear cam, one of the best things I specced on my estate
  4. I have it up to about 374 bhp now and it still feels lazy. Maybe it's the DSG effect, disappointing !!! I love the car otherwise. I have much more urgency in my 2005 TT 240 QS.
  5. Yes have almost been fooled a few times. Seen the 'R' badge on the front and the TDI badge on the back PASS
  6. I tried the dealer suggestion and get my own SD card and download the map etc. It wouldn't work, so unless you are an IT expert then it was stupid advice from the dealer and I wasted money on a clean SD card. I will just buy the official map and suck up the extra cost, less of a hassle
  7. I found the VW dealers to be a waste of time when I was looking for a new MK7. At the time I test drove in a GTD estate and got my R estate off carwow. I wanted more a feel for the feel of the size and some of the interior, as I knew any performance in the would be a massive hike over the GTD. MY last VW was a MK3 Golf driver, so had no idea what to expect in the MK7. I feel most dealers are the same. There are the exceptions of course, but not many seem in a rush to get your money that's for sure (and I was paying cash at the time)
  8. From the rear the Passat is ok, but the front end looks like a grandfathers car. The number of male Passat drivers coming from the opposite direction and looking at my R estate makes me smile. I am reasonably sure most of them are super-jealous
  9. 100% SA. Can't really call it a chase though :-)
  10. Great looking car and welcome !!!
  11. Oh right :-). The buckets look great, but if you are an old man like me, they just don't work haha Everyone in my neighbourhood keeps commenting on it and asking about it, so am pleased. My neighbour runs a VW/Audi specialist garage in WGC and he loves it. I wont touch it though. I stuck in a Jetex air filter, but that's it
  12. Hi yes, definitely keeping the R, have spent too much on it and it's still fun and practical. I wasn't really a fan of the MK1 either, until I saw the 3.2, which had better styling. I saw one in Papaya colour, which is very rare and it looked amazing. I came across the 240 QS a few years ago purely by accident and I loved it. I definitely had a thought the 240 QS might be more collectable one day, so am glad I got a chance to get it again. It really is fun to drive. It keeps pulling and great to drive, even if the steering is pretty heavy. Love the exhaust note too, really raspy. The interior is alcantara and the styling very retro (in a good way). The 2-tone paint job looks amazing too. I came across an article a few year ago, where it said there were only about 650 left, but who knows, probably less than that by now. I would definitely recommend it if someone is looking for something fun and maybe a future classic. I plan to hold onto this one for as long as I can. It came with FSH, 45k miles and 1 owner, plus the optional extra (non-bucket) seats. Don't get the buckets if you have a bad back, you have been warned :-)
  13. You mean the non-bucket seats, yes? I had one before and the buckets were way too deep. I am too old to have to deal with those again :-) I was looking at an older TTRS drop-top, but love the QS and had to get one again. I forgot how revvy the engine is, it still wants to pull in 5th gear. I got it yesterday, so happy !!!
