  1. Hi guys. Not sure if this has been mentioned before. TyrolSport are making some brake caliper stiffening kit to eliminate the rubber business flex. These kit are very popular on the mk6 R's at the front. But VW changed the front caliper designs on the 7R to be equal to the 6R rear caliper resulting in no need for stiffening at the front on the 7R. But rear 7R caliper has now the rubber bushing for the sliding pin (7mm Allen key) And tje caliper is flexing and giving bad pad wear... Now the solution is to order the Tyrolsport Caliper stiffening kit. It does not state it fit the 7R. But I can confirm this. [emoji4] See pics below. This is a great mode for small cash...

  2. Congratulations with the CFS Radiators... [emoji4] I I love mine too [emoji41] Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
  3. I have MFAXP on my 7R with APR stage 2 HO sw v2.7. It shows max boost as 0.60bar (+/- 0.05bar) in ECO. Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
  4. I have the APR system and it is great [emoji6] Have no personal experience with BCS other than their mid pipe solution with anti drone bend! It was great and I think also there cat-back systems sounds great without any extra cabin noise at cruise... This is something they have worked with as there traid. Not sure if any other then APR and BCS has this anti drone 'helmholtz resonator" thing built in the systems! Good luck... [emoji4] Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
  5. Testet the ECO mode now! Didn't have much time nore Road to test fully. But as stated before. ECO mode gives max 0.6bar of boost. But if gearbox is set to manual you get full boost. Did not test "kick down" switch... This is in APR stage 2 HO sw v2.7. Wonder why APR hasn't documented this on their's site? [emoji4] Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
  6. Wow! Did not know that! Will test this. I am also having a dyno session to test my APR results. Will have a run in ECO also then... [emoji4] [emoji106] Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
  7. The mirrors auto folds on open / close on the key fob! It needs to be activated via the screen menu under car settings! I always deactivate the auto fold during wintertime and after car wash! Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
  8. I like your progress in this short time... [emoji4] [emoji106] Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
  9. Don't think all 7R's had ECO mode in the drive select options... Think only earlier models had it... [emoji4] Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
  10. If var is under warranty and not tuned! Have the dealer fix it first... This should not be a problem from stock. Also not a problem with stage 1 cars either! But if you are tuned! Forget the warranty and fix it yourself.... I had a slipping clutch. The rule is when it starts to slip the clutch pack is done and needs replacing... Good luck and keep us informed...

  11. I just read about MRC also now is offering MAP Switching on stock ECU... Not sure how it's done... Anyone knows anything? Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
  12. How do MRC manage the MAP Switching? Via Cruise Control? I thought APR said it was not possible on the 7R ECU! After all. APR was the first and Master of this feature! Or am I wrong? Please share your new setup. I makes us dreams at stage 2 calm and satisfied with your writings... [emoji4] [emoji106] Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
  13. Except for the RS3 8v2! Which is the MQB platform but different ECU... [emoji4] Sent fra min SM-N975F via Tapatalk
