  1. They look great [emoji106] I might have to follow suit....... Take it they come with a clamp to attach to the rear pipe? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Does this help? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I had my car at BCS for a day while they tried to develop a pipe (with anti drone) but they couldn’t get it sounding right. Nice reckons they’d need a couple of days to develop one but I’m not close enough to give my car over again. I do like the sound some of the time but a lot of time it’s just a bit much.

  4. I have the Zaustworx one and as much as I liked it to start with I’m taking it off once the weather improves. It’s a bit too loud tbh and the motorway drone is pretty bad.
  5. A Chipolo key ring......... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I like but not at that price! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. There’s a whole other thread on this a while ago but the main reason I switched from JB4 to stage 1 was because it wasn’t in sync with the tcu. I was getting hesitation (potential clutch slip) and had to dial back the boost lower down the revs to limit torque. I’m not the only one who had this issue. The ecu doesn’t see the true torque request with a JB4 and I didn’t want to risk damaging the DSG. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. From memory you do a few runs on map 2. 3rd gear manual, WOT (avoiding kickdown) from 2000 rpm to redline and a few seconds in 4th and send off to George. Private road recommended [emoji6] He’ll check the data and get you to do same on map 6 or give you an amended map 6 to try. He really couldn’t be more helpful and he didn’t seem to get p’d off at the number of logs/questions I sent him. In the end additive maps worked best for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Agreed that install is pretty easy to DIY (even with large hands). The one thing I miss about the JB4 compared to stage 1 is the logging/tinkering with map 6. If you bought new then the support from George is excellent in setting up map 6 and logging is easy. If not then the Golf R US forum has lots of help/resources. You can upload to data zap and share the results. Once you start to understand what to look out for then you can see where it’s pulling timing etc. I had quite a few map 6’s set-up depending on outside temps/time of year. I also limited boost low down to be easier on the clutch packs. As said I do miss it from that perspective...... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I had the steering wheel airbag rattle on mine and could make it stop/recreate it by tapping firmly on the airbag. Took it to VW and had it replaced under warranty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Well worth it although I take them off in the winter as the rear blind is a bit dark in lowlight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. PS You can do it without taking the battery out using a coat hanger [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Check out the JB4 install guide as you can run it from behind battery into the passenger footwell. There’s a rubber grommet you can pierce through. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Will do Rick [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
