  1. I was thinking about upgrading to a mib2 but keeping my standard screen. What company called that will fix it for £300?
  2. This I do not know 🙈 I’ll have to have a look at that and see if it says it and if it does I think I’ll just swap the tank for a new one.
  3. When you say having issues is it lack of sound by any chance? Im having issues with my MIB1 as well, when I first start the car 80% of the time I get no sound and have to turn the car off and re start it and when I I do have sound I get nothing from the drivers side speaker 🤷‍♂️ I’ve read there’s a common issue with the amp on the harman units.
  4. I’ve read a bit about this bag (on here) and I guessed it was just a case of reach into the expansion bottle and take out the bag but when I looked into the tank my tank seems to be different than the pictures @marshy posted and I can’t see anything in there because of what seems to be a separate compartment 🤷‍♂️
  5. Thread revival again 🤦‍♂️ I’ve just started getting the same message on my dash but the weird thing is the KESSY still works on both doors. 🤔 Does anyone have any ideas?
  6. I was just about to buy then the lockdown hit 🤦‍♂️ I think i will try and source them in the uk that way I may receive them this year. 🙈
  7. I like this a lot 👌 Do you have a link?
  8. Have you checked the screen for a VW stamp? If it’s not a genuine screen or has had a new screen at some point it could have been fitted badly I’ve seen this before.
  9. Have you tried taking the pollen filter out to see if it’s wet? I think the drains in the scuttle could be blocked causing the water to overflow through the pollen filter housing. it’s not a difficult job to check in there to be honest.
  10. I honestly thought the car was much better at stage 2+, it felt quick and was great to drive and it made 375bhp and around 380-400ftlb (can’t remember exactly. At stage 3 it mate 414/376 (🤔 less torque and it was felt) hardware from what I remember :- LO4XX Full milltek turbo back (decat) LOBA HPFP RS4 fuel reg/valve ( think that’s right ha) RS3 In tank pump RS3 injectors ( advised to get lthese over RS4 as the spray pattern is better 🤔 think it’s bull s#*t tbf as another tuner told me some horror stories) Airtec intercooler Ram air induction kit with the wider pipe work there may be more but it’s been a few years.
  11. I didn’t rate the L04XX I found it way to laggy and by the time it was on full boost it was sat on the limiter 😫 I thought the car was much better at stage 2+ it felt quicker and was much more drivable. As a result I fell out with the car and sold it within a couple of months, shame really because I loved it.
  12. Agreed. It’s not a bad thing having the thermostat and water pump replaced as they are pretty poor but to be charged for something that may not have been leaking especially if your coolant hadn’t moved would be a bit naughty of VW. It’s possible it could even be brake fluid as it’s not uncommon for techs to push back the pistons in the callipers without checking the brake fluid level so the extra fluid that is in the callipers is forced back into the reservoir and if it’s already at max or near max level that fluid has to go somewhere and it’s usually down the bulk head and chassis leg etc then onto the ground.
  13. Maybe they changed it as they couldn’t locate any other leak and it’s common? 🤷‍♂️ If it was leaking wouldn’t VW have picked up on that at the time of its service? Knowing it’s a common issue I’d expect that to be part of their checks while servicing as they do like to try and up sell. I hope it’s nothing and an easy fix but it certainly doesn’t look like coolant to me 😫. Sorry for the negativity as it’s probably not want you want to read 🤦‍♂️
  14. This looks very much like oil to me whether it be engine oil or gearbox oil. When my car had a coolant leak it did leave a stain on my drive but not one that water sat on top of like that, the coolant in your car is mixed with water anyway so I wouldn’t expect it to separate like (and I’ve never seen it before) that by dripping onto your drive. Could be spilt/excess oil But I’d get it checked.
  15. Not again! You don’t seem to be having much luck with this front corner 😫. I would be careful letting the insurance company take your car to their Bodyshop which I’m sure you already know from your last experience. As people have said you may be waiting a while for the car to be repaired but I hope this time it goes smoothly you.
