  1. Removing Exhaust Tips

    Been in touch with a mate with a welder, we are thinking cut them off @ the weld and clean up, and then tack weld a nut on to the tail pipe then put them back on with a small bolt into the nut, or tack weld a washer onto the trim and put back on with a self tapper into the tail pipe. will investigate further in the next couple of days Nothing is straight forwards is it. 🙄
  2. Removing Exhaust Tips

    I really fancy doing this mod, as my car is silver white I think the black tail pipes will be a good look I have a bodyshop only 5 mins from my house who do powder coating and they have quoted me £40 to powder coat in matt black all 4 tail trims A quick check on my tail pipe trims show they have been spot welded on, so not a straight forward job - looks like I might have to get the dremel cutter out to remove them, then think about how to re-attach Thoughts ?
  3. What detailing have you done today?

    Not quite a full detail, but I gave my car it’s first ever wash, and removed the glue from the transport covers, thankfully found no marks or swirls on the paintwork. Gave it a quick spray with some IronX, surprising how much contam was present on a week old car Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Pedal box for DSG

    Opened the cubby & fed the connectors over the top, removed the small cover above the throttle pedal (torx required) Plugged it in Simples [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Pedal box for DSG

    Pedal Box Plus arrived today, took less than 5 mins to fit - i have only done the self tune function and i can feel the improvement with a quick run up the road. will have a proper play with it over the xmas break. I am prob not feeling the full benefit of fitting it so soon after picking up the car as it only has 65miles on the clock I have never started moving a car so soon, a slippery slope i fear 😜
  6. Pedal box for DSG

    So I have finally taken delivery of my new R, and so far with the limited running I have the only thing that I’m unhappy with a the unresponsive throttle feeling, it just feels very ‘damped’ is It this feeling that the peddle box corrects ?? Edit. - I hope it does cos I just ordered one 😳
