  1. Can only echo what others have said. I’m early 40’s and went from a Mk7 to Mk7.5 Estate. Absolutely brilliant car and ticks so many boxes. Great practicality as a family car but also great fun when you want it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Quite hard to say as these things are fairly subjective and it’s difficult to compare sounds from a video v inside my car. Thought I would miss the DSG farts but I don’t. Much happier with how it sounds overall compared to the Mk7 estate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I really like the sound of my WLTP estate. Had a Mk7 Estate with res delete which was just a bit too much, especially the drone on the motorway. Find it somewhere in between. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Definitely not easy unless you remove the rear valence which is easy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Good luck! It took me about 3 goes before I was happy. There was an excellent guide on here, will see if I can find it..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. On the Mk7 the front badge is much easier than the rear and I’d go gloss black to match to the rear if it were me. In saying that I had carbon badges on my white wagon which had carbon mirrors/gloss black wheels but changed back to silver after a few months. Preferred the contrast of the silver. Still have the carbon badges in my box of ‘spares’ in the garage. You have a pic of the rear? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Great resource here - https://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=235&aspect=35&diameter=19&wheelwidth=8&offset=52&width2=245&aspect2=35&wheel_size=19&wheel_width=8-5&offset2=45 And here - https://www.tyres-pneus-online.co.uk/tyre-equivalence-advice.html Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I only have this issue if the Apple cable catches when closing it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Do you mean the intake pipe had play in it? Unless the Mk7.5 is different to the Mk7 the turbo elbow locks into place and is held by one torx bolt. It doesn’t move at all. I’m guessing if you’re intake pipe wasn’t secured properly then potentially dirty air has entered the intake causing your fault code. If you’re back to OEM then given you have warranty just take it to VW and let them sort it out.
  11. Short answer is no, VW don’t offer it and doubt they will. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Might be worth finding someone close to you with VCDS who can do a proper scan and take from there. Have you got the OEM elbow back on (if it was ever off)? Your mention of two bolts has confused me as the OEM elbow only has one and there is no play at all. If you had/have the forge elbow then there’s no bolts and minimal play.

  13. What are the descriptions of the codes? And what are you reading the ecu with? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. In that case check out BCS who do a decent anti-drone res delete. There are cheaper options so have a search on here for res delete. Air filter wise not much point imo unless you’re going stage 2 but it would give you more induction noise depending on what you go for if that’s what you’re after. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Mk7 or Mk7.5? If Mk7 then a res delete will give you what you’re after for not much outlay. Not sure what the situation is with a res delete for post WLTP cars. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
