  1. You’ll also need an upgraded clutch or DSG tune as well if you haven’t already got these. Upgraded intercooler is recommended but isn’t necessary. Some of the popular mk7 tuning companies offer stage 2 packages; drive in standard, drive home with close to 400bhp - however these cost around £4K Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Third service is a minor service, major are even years (even major is only an extended oil service). Third year service is Oil & filter Brake fluid Haldex service MOT (although these have automatic 6 month extension) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Stay away from Adrian Flux and any of their subsidiary outlets. I had to threaten them / underwriter with the insurance ombudsman regarding my claim. Adrian Flux refused to speak to me re my claim and told me I need to speak directly with the underwriter - even though my contract was with them; not the underwriter. Read some of their reviews before using AF. They are cheap for a reason. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Those P3 gauges are not very accurate. If you want to accurately time 0-60 / quarter mile etc have a look at the “dragy” timing system. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I think it’s around the £100 mark. Sorry, can’t help on any recommendations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I don’t think anyone really knows what cause the turbos to fail. I’ve seen suggestions it’s down to balancing, oil starvation due to blocked oil ways etc. I spoke to a turbo specialist a few years ago regarding my concerns over balancing of my turbo. I was told if a turbo was out of balance by even the smallest amount then it will wail like a police cars siren. If the turbo does not sound like a siren, the balancing isn’t an issue.

  7. Isn’t this feature enabled / disabled in the infotainment system? Is it disabled there? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah I still have the app installed even though it doesn’t work. Bit of a kick in the balls given you had to buy the app in the first place. Yes, only £10 or £20 whatever it was but still crap they don’t fix their issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Some have managed to cure it themselves. Simply move the gear lever from P to D and back again many times. It’s the micro switch that is dirty, doing the above repeatedly seems to clean the switch. Yes, sounds daft but give it a go. Several people on the FB group have had this issue and the above fix has cured their problem. Worth a try Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Stage 2 should be low-mid 3 seconds. JB4 equipped car is high 3 seconds.
  11. Talking between £500-600 at a VW Specialist. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I had to replace the fuel flap actuator last year. It’s a cheap fix, around £30 for the actual part and an hour of your time if you fancy DIY (not difficult). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Another vote for the thermostat / water pump being the culprit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 😂 I’m actually using these to paint the garden fence. Far easier / quicker than using a brush.
  15. Quiet at work so thought I would wash all three cars. Should keep me busy.
