  4. Tunes on those cars. 2016 R was Apr 8V RS3. Was Apr Mk7.5 R Revo 8P RS3 Revo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. No discount I’m aware of. I looked on progressive parts they had the rear discs for £147 and pads for £75 I done a price match with Awesome Gti and they supplied. I should add I only fitted the rears Friday so only done 100 miles so far. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Just fitted a pair of vagbremtechnic drilled rear discs and Racingline RP700 pads. Sprayed the bells with black hammerite before fitting to stop them rusting. Got the fronts coming with some Porsche Macan calipers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. As you say noise makes a nice pleasurable difference but only lasts a short time if the rest of the car isn’t what your used to. For me 1/ MK7 2016 3 door golf R with Apr software, absolutely fantastic car and the best to date. By far the fastest and easiest to live with. 2/ MK7.5 2019 my current car is perfect and more tech than the previous one just not the performance the earlier car had. 3/ 8V RS3 gorgeous looking and sounding but a huge step back in terms of performance and technology. Because the 2016 R was so good this had a massive thing to live up to but it didn’t. 4/ 8P RS3 gorgeous looking sounded nice but was just about the worst car I’ve ever owned.

  8. If APR had quoted higher figures I’d of went APR. Although I certainly ain’t disappointed in going Revo. My Revo dealer is only 20 miles away, APR is 130 miles. I think APR do make the quicker car but also run more boost. Revo are more about safety and making things last. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. On my last R I ran Apr stage 1 then stage 2, what can I say phenomenal performance and driveability, for me on pre gpf cars Apr had it totally nailed. This car being gpf I totally intended going Apr again but the figures were extremely low for gpf something like 327bhp. I then went to Revo and to be honest for a stage 1 it’s goes very well, I’m 100% happy and if I was doing it again I would go the same path. I’ve had 4 cars done by APR and 4 cars done by Revo Had zero issues with any and they’ve all be really good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. This could be to do with the front being removed to get the intercooler replaced. Something that has put me off doing an intercooler on mine. Strange it has worked for a day or so afterwards. As above get the codes read but I’d think it’s more than likely to do with the install. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thank you [emoji1303] Was looking trying to find my logs for when I had that car and so far been unable too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. When I ran my 2016 R on APR software the stage 1 tune was hitting just about 2 bar! When I went to stage 2 this dropped slightly. I and many others ran this software without problems and many still do. As with anything it depends how the cars driven and how hard they’re pushed. As a daily sensible fast road car I’d hope they would run without issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Depending on tune but yeah most are around that figure and some run a touch more. Revo keeping things safe for everyday use[emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I wouldn’t read too much in to it, obviously an issue with the dyno. The stage 1 figure is probably fairly accurate, mine without an intercooler I’ve always said it’s about 350 bhp. Will be interesting to see another run on the dyno without it slipping. At the end of the day you’ve driven it a few months on stage 1 and know what it was like so a good judge on the new performance. As always the biggest jump is stock to stage 1 as in this case stage 2 is only 0.1-.02 bar boost increase. Hope your happy with the car and see how it goes as you put some miles on. Are you still running your pedalbox on stage 2? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
