  1. I assume you are still in WiFi range? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yes. As said previously. Don’t be strangers, it’s always good to have genuine people contributing and helping out others even when their own circumstances have changed. Stobsie has been without his R for a while now and he’s still active, unfortunately we can’t shake him off! [emoji6][emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The OEM standard pads are made by TRW. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. That looks perfect for rigging a couple of marine flares up to. I thought the use of blank cartridge triggers had been outlawed. But that trigger with a marine flare is ideal for a few shipping containers I have in a remote location. Thanks for posting. 👍
  5. The DS2500 are a far better pad than the OEM TRW pads. The difference in the condition in the rear discs is quite literally measurable. The rear discs went from a marbled look to smooth shiny surface in less than 50 miles of driving. I can't really comment on the fronts as I completely changed my setup. Ideally you need to keep the same compound of pad all round, otherwise you can upset the brake balance, which potentially may not end well.
  6. Dry bush on one of the anti-roll bars or knackered ball joint on one of the drop link bars??
  7. I’m aware of those brands but I wouldn’t say their any cheaper than OEM unless you catch a motor factors promotion. I just don’t understand why people skimp on tyres and brakes, when they’re so important. Don’t mean to derail the thread. Sorry OP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. So you have a car capable of tremendous speed and performance, and you want budget pads that are better than OEM? Good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Some people have cars / hearses with sunroofs which can deal with such situations, but hey, that’s another thread / topic. [emoji6]
  10. No. Because I don’t have a pouch. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Also, if the car has been sat still for a few days/weeks, the Keyless system deactivates anyway. VW have not given the exact time period. Prior to my car battery issue, I used to have to unlock the car with the fob when I needed to unlock it, having been parked in the garage for a while.
  12. Try carrying a six month old child and all the paraphernalia that goes with him/her, only to hunt for the key to unlock the car. Keyless makes it a breeze to unlock the car when the hands are full.
  13. The car shades are very good. Have both a set for a hatch and estate and they fit really well and still allow the windows to be opened. I would recommend them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. If this is your first trip to the 'Ring', I personally would recommend upgrading to a proper BBK. I went last summer and being a novice of the ring, I wanted to ensure I had the confidence in my brakes no matter what. My AP Racing BBK was faultless around the ring, meaning I could do 2 laps simultaneously without worrying about the brakes. The problem is the heat. Solid 1-piece disc's accumulate heat and are unable to dissipate heat quick enough. 2-piece discs are more efficient at cooling, with less heat being transferred to the caliper and will mean that you don't suffer brake fade 3/4 of the way round the ring. You are going to have the same problems if you just upgrade the calipers, as they'll just introduce even more heat, with the discs unable to dissipate the heat quick enough. Option 1: BBK with 2-piece discs at the front (Tarox, AP Racing), upgraded brake fluid and Ferodo DS2500 pads all round. Keeping OEM rear discs. Option 2: Budget option - Upgraded 2-piece front disc's (ECS or Emmanuele Design), upgraded pads all round and upgraded brake fluid. Just my thoughts
  15. I’d agree with that. Advertising your security, doesn’t make it more secure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
