  1. Hey Motoract, That was my old car. Had it from new, was traded in at VW Sytner in Leeds. Another option to note for the list is the DynoAudio (tech pack came with the Pro Navigation) Its completely standard, been run on Shell Vpower most of the time, did try Momentum but didn't think much to it. It was Ceramic coated last August, hopefully that is still in tact (you'll find a sticker in the drivers door frame). Anything else you need to know, feel free to drop me a PM.
  2. I'll still stick around, as there will still be useful bits to pickup and also share with this community too. Yes definitely sticking with the VW brand. The other half got a new shape Polo last year, even that's quite pleasant to drive for what it is. I do believe with VW you get what you pay for over the likes of Ford's, Vauxhall's etc
  3. Keeping it was always my original aim. Like yourself I usually change after around 3 years, but didn't feel the urge to with the R. Had circumstances / needs not changed, it would still be sat on the driveway
  4. Thanks, I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would. Much more comfortable and a smoother ride
  5. Hi all, Just wanted to say this forum has been most helpful over the past 3 years of ownership. Traded in my beloved car in yesterday, for a more practical Passat R Line. I have loved every minute of R ownership. Maybe one day I'll have another.
  6. Rear outer light cluster replaced due to excessive condensation and water droplets
  7. Just a quick update, there now appears to be an official link from the VW website which takes you along to the following site: http://webspecial.volkswagen.de/maps/int/en/index.html Latest maps now appearing there for post 2015 Nav pro users atleast (not checked any others)
  8. Does that include cleaning the pump filter, which VW believe isn't a serviceable part?
  9. I've used Pristine, not for Diamond cut wheels, but they made a fantastic job of my prets 😬
  10. Just spit balling ideas. I thought both of yours were around the same build year
  11. Out of curiosity are both of yours also MY16? Just wondering if they changed supplier or quality at a certain point in time 🤔
  12. Yes they didn't bat an eyelid at getting it replaced. Car went in Thursday morning for its service, had it back late Friday afternoon all complete
  13. Bonnet insulation felt due to shrinking above the turbo, and also the water pump due to slow coolant leak
  14. Had two Prets refurbed by Pristine. Their turn around was around a week, the collection and delivery did add to the turn around. I was impatient, and went and picked them up as soon as they were ready. Done a great job, and well packaged up for the journey home
  15. I walked straight up to the service and parts desk at my local dealership. Asked them about the Data plugs, he pointed to a pile on a desk close by and said help yourself to one. No questions asked
