  1. Short Shifters!

    It is much shorter, my missus felt like she wasn't sure if she had engaged the gear. It took a bit of getting used to but I eventually really enjoyed it, felt more mechanical along with the upgraded clutch. Everyone who drove the car commented on just how different it felt. As I said to keep the peace I have removed and am looking at other models.
  2. Short Shifters!

    I went Neuspeed too first of all which I liked as it had max reduction and no adjusting just fit and forget. Unfortunately my other half could not get on with such a change in shift so it's up for sale and I am in the market for an adjustable or slightly less reduction in shift. Looking APR or forge at the moment. Mine was up for sale on here and is on Ebay if you are interested, it's as new. Forum mates rates! Also with regards to the racingline one, I was told by Awesome that the model for the Mk7 was no longer in stock or produced?
  3. APR sale!

    Will there be any discount on the quickshift or dogbone mount?
  4. MK7R Clutch Upgrades - Calling all manual owners!

    Yup I ran it in like a boss, followed the instructions to a tee but still had issues. Mostly as I was doing stop start short journeys a lot I think. Give it a good hiding and some launches and it changed completely.
  5. MK7R Clutch Upgrades - Calling all manual owners!

    Yup, squeek, judder and occasional crunch if I am not concentrating when pulling away. Although this has lessened with abuse to the clutch strangely. Took it back to where it was fitted and we went out a drive, gave it some abuse and it didn't make the sound once!😡 Not sure if being a race clutch it actually needs a good kicking occasionally.
  6. BCS Powervalve - Just do it...!

    In my opinion it is without a doubt THE best sounding exhaust for the 7R. I may be biased.
  7. BCS Powervalve - Just do it...!

    To be fair I know exactly what you mean. I now own this exact exhaust that I bought from Tondy and I too on occasion thing they sit slightly out of line which upsets my OCD. Not seen another to compare. Other than that the exhaust is immense!

    How you feeling it compared to manual mate?
  9. Drivers side Led drl

    Thanks for the help on this guys. Weirdly went out to car tonight and noticed that with the lights switched to O so only the drls should be lit when I turn on the ignition it lights both sides then the drivers large light followed by small light goes out which means that they are plugged in and working but seem to switch off one after the other!? Even more confused. The boys at Ecotune have said they will plug it in for me and check on vagcom.
  10. Drivers side Led drl

    Cheers guys, car is out of warranty so hoping its not a whole new unit as they ain't cheap!
  11. Drivers side Led drl

    Just noticed whilst sitting behind another car today that my drivers side Led drl is out. The main beam works fine. Connected the Odb eleven and no errors. Also turned drl off and the passage side goes off but no response from the drivers. Is there a fuse or something else I can try, had a Google search but can't see anyone with this issue.
  12. APR Unicorn

    Can only give an opinion on my experience. Went APR Ecotune as they were local and had an excellent reputation. Went for a chat and the friendly atmosphere and staff sealed the deal. Have been back since for all my work including service.
  13. BCS Powervalve in VW Driver Mag

    I run full BCS turbo back so am slightly biased but having been to a few rolling road days and heard golfs with all manner of exhausts the BCS has by far the nicest sound. Not raspy like some.
  14. 4 wheel alighment worry

    Feel your pain mate, did exactly the same after full alignment last week, I seem to have gotten away with a badly curbed alloy and sliced tire though......
  15. I like Tornado felt it was night and day to standard. Massively more heavy which I have become accustomed to but the judder and squeel and now crunching I get (possibly flywheel I have been told) is just horrible. Surely they are all fitted same way with same parts.
