  1. Hi there, probably best you advise where in UK you are, and the good peeps here should be able to advise the best indie in your area for Revo, etc..!? Reference clutch, it may well fail, it does happen, and probably eventually will, but you can discuss that with the installer! They may be able to tailor it to reduce the chances of slippage... If you do need to change it, alas, your left quads and calves will get stronger lol!! Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  2. Depends how far you're willing to travel!? Sheffield will be a c.40 min drive for you, but you won't get much better than Statllers... Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  3. I thought most of these suspension creaks were caused by the lower arm! Usually they need to completely remove it and grease it up.. As I understand it, there is a VW TSB for this, but generally only helps for 6-12 months, and is dependent on the temperature and humidity.. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  4. Your local roads must be in a better state than ours in Sheffield then lol!!! Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  5. Not sure if it's just me but when even a small stone gets trapped in my prets, it rattles around like someone at the side of the road is firing ballbearings at my wheels!! Can't remember that with my previous Mk V GTi... Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  6. Well contacted dealer again today to ask about release notes, but none forthcoming lol!! All they said was some people with pro nav had experienced the black screen of death, that's it really!! They did say my maps wouldn't change, shame as quite fancied having them updated foc!! They also said though any saved destinations would be wiped, along with home address, but no biggie I guess!! They also said my aftermarket speed camera alerts would be wiped, but should know them by now in all honesty I suppose... Any new routes I'll just use Waze, as long as that still bloody works... My motto has always been 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', so just hope I'm doing the right thing here!!?? Waze to one side, anyone know how easy it is to have speed camera locations enabled on VW pro nav, and I'm asking this as a total technofobe before somebody starts talking about zip files and sd cards lol!?

  7. Touching wood here but never had any problems with nav whatsoever, although doesn't always connect to Spotify 1st time, so maybe that's it lol!!! I managed to get speed camera alerts on my nav, so hoping these aren't wiped by the update!! Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  8. Did you notice any differences at all when you got it back lol?? Did you lose any/all settings on your nav, like saved addresses, home address etc, or connectivity to your phone for android auto, spotify, waze etc etc? Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  9. Apologies, what's OTA? Yeah, asked about cost, it's free as still in warranty, which is odd as car was registered April 2016! He said it's to do with system potentially rebooting itself intermittently, although I've not had that even once lol!! They will apparently perform a free heakth-check whilst it's there, which does make me a tad suspicious! However, if it's free, and an update, what have I got to lose tbf!? Hmmm, very confusing... Just wondered if anyone has been through similar!? Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  10. Hi Guys, just received a call from my local VW dealer, stating there's a software update on my 2016 R pro-nav, ie a recall! He read out a load of official blah blah, stating that it will be hugely beneficial if I have it done, but my choice of course! He said it will return the nav to factory settings, although didn't go into any more depth tbh.. Anyone else had a similar call, email etc? Cheers Andrew Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  11. Totally stock, thus far, had my R 3 years now.. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  12. Ahh ok, that would explain perhaps why I only ever hear it when car is in motion!! I will investigate further, cheers... Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  13. Sorry, are you talking about creaky steering or suspension here? Cheers Andrew Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  14. Cheers, is changing the top mount a big job in terms of effort and price, or is it just the bearing that might need changing? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  15. Cheers Guys!! We are talking about VW remember, lol, so they couldn't diagnose a bad hair day!!! Is removing the steering cowling safe to do? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
