  1. I have driven down that road, the road he came out of is a B road, there is restricted vision at the junction.
  2. I believe Timpsons can provide new keys, but do not cut blades that you supply.
  3. My average has recently increased by 5MPG, it has just gone over 6000 and I have put my 18" winters on, not sure which is responsible, the mileage or the smaller diameter wheels.
  4. I refer the honourable gentle to my previous post, the most likely cause is Nickel Sulphide inclusion in the glass, over the years I have seen this many times in toughened glass used in buildings, the first incident is usually put down to vandalism or accidental damage, but after a few more incidents, they get an expert to investigate. Having said that even if this is the cause, getting VW to stump up is likely to be difficult, but they could pass the cost onto the sunroof manufacturer.
  5. Nickel Sulphide (NiS) inclusions are a known issue for toughened glass, resulting from the presence of nickel contaminants in the glass melt reacting with sulphur, most likely from the furnace fuel. During thermal toughening, these inclusions undergo a crystalline phase change to a smaller form and are fixed in place within the glass upon cooling. Over time the inclusions grow and can eventually impart enough stress in the glass to cause spontaneous failure.
  6. Your speedo would under read by 3.5%, so show 58 at 60 and the ride height would increase by almost 12mm, as well as losing a similar amount of arch gap.
  7. I bought these. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Right-Angle-90-Degree-Lightning-Charger-USB-Cable-20cm-for-iPhone-X-8-7-7Plus-6/113110515081?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=413431301046&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649
  8. There are plenty of people selling inserts, all different colours for the rear badge, most are just vinyl but there are also some gel ones, depends on your taste, colour coded to the car, tartan whatever. Lots on ebay
  9. rMY dealer misordered my car, first time forgot the DCC and then on reorder forgot the Carbon mirro covers, so I got a pair from Euro Car parts and they fitted them before I took delivery.
  10. Back in the day, well my grandfather's anyway, a decoke of the engine was required at regular intervals.
  11. When I use the sat nav to plan a route when I am away and not starting at my home address, it regularly defaults to starting from home. Sometimes, simply inputing the address again solves it and it starts at my current location, occasionally, I have to drive a short distance before it just finds the current location and the route without any further action on my part. Is it a GPS issue? Has anyone else experienced this, was it rectified and what was done? Thanks in advance.
  12. I think the card you have covers Western Europe, which includes Germany, mine certainly covers Denmark where my daughter lives.
  13. The lock for the glovebox disappeared mid 2016, should be possible to fit a pre 2016 lid, but the key would be different, and expensive to replace all the locks.
