  1. Welcome, but have to agree. Hate this look on cars, wrong sort of car to do these sorts of mods to. Each to their own though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Do you have a premium bank account? Our bank account includes perks such as free car breakdown cover, free travel insurance, free mobile phone insurance ........etc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. DSG service isn’t that bad. I did mine at 3 years / 20k miles. Filter is below the battery tray so I removed the battery and tray, although you can get to the filter without removing the battery it’s just a little tight. You can also top fill through the filter housing (that’s what I did). You need vcds / obdeleven to monitor the oil temp before checking the level. There’s a how to in the DIY section for servicing the haldex. Easy job, done mine twice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Fresh oil goes black very quickly. Spark plugs and air filter are not due for changing until 6 years / 60k miles. Don’t wait for the car to tell you when it’s due a service (if on long life); do it every 12 months (I change the oil every 6 months). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Was just going to say the same. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 417bhp stage 2 on a mk7 sounds fishy as well. Must be talking pub figures, not real world figures Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Is that possible? Worst case is get all locks / keys replaced (around £700) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Do you have any security devices, AWG, steering lock etc? If not, may be worth getting a steering lock until you decide what to do / find the key. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Where abouts is the thermostat housing on the engine? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Nothing really different to any other car. Obviously these are quick cars, make sure it’s not gone backwards through a wall! I’m sure someone will start piping up about early cars having turbo issues. Don’t let this worry you. Turbo failures are not limited to 14/15 cars. 68 plate cars have also had failures. Not as common as the internet makes out. My main requirements were. 1) not an ex lease 2) DSG Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Which version did you go for, boot mounted or the one which replaces your spare? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Was the DSG fluid within the specified temperature range before starting? Did you keep your foot hard on the brake? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. 19” Pretoria reps are around £500 a set. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Happened again this morning, so going to take a trip to my local dealer later to pick up the part. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Lots of information in this thread. [emoji106] Which type of sub have people gone for, spare wheel or boot mounted? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
