  1. I think it's good to keep it stock for a while, getused to it, then mod it. That way you feel more benefit of the mod. I waited almost 2yrs til stage 1 mrc (end of warranty). Made a massive difference and now pops and gurgles in sports mode but quietly inside the cabin. Few weeks later (ie today) vagsport res delete went on and the pops and gurgles are mad loud. Almost embarrassed to drive it near people, lol, sure I will get used to it. Good thing is normal mode it's much quieter. Welcome to the club!
  2. I'm looking for a place to fit mine. Id DIY if inhas ramps and a pipe cutter. You tube vids show it is easy to do. So far an exhaust place said they would try and they charge 70+vat per hour and it may take an hour. It's a 15min job max imo. I'm still looking to find an alternative place to fit. Problem is many major places only fit their own supplied kit
  3. Some insurers dont accept mods. Have you found a situation of them not accepting the changes or do you only choose certain insurers? Isn't there also a database they can access to see current insurance details? If that's the case when you renew they may query if certain mods remain. Maybe the database is within an insurance group but I have definitely found this before.
  4. Cheers. Gonna invest in one!
  5. Hi Paul How us the res delete treating you after 2 months? I've been holding out for BCS but they still haven't designed on yet. Are you running a 7 or 7.5? I've got a 7 and definitely want to avoid a drone. Cheers!
  6. On mine I put the tt inlet above that pipe (So the small vac pipe is under the tt inlet). It is still squashed and touching the tt inlet but I think that's just how it needs to be, it doesn't move nicely out of the way.
  7. I just got mine done at indi specialist, volks autos in Sutton, sw London. £99 for the oil change but nothing with the filter...When I asked if they could clean the filter the receptionist wasn't sure but she called the technician (I rang her Saturday afternoon). He googled it , saw it was easy and they charged £110 for oil change and filter change. They even gave me before and after pics. I haven't seen the pics online so far so assume it's legit
  8. And da-da I have just got this warning last night 🙄 Havent done many long drives and when we did it was often eco for motorway. Switching to S from now on! Car is just under 3yrs old
  9. Where are you based? I just bought obd11pro. Never used it before. Sounds like you just need to use one once. Can try mine uf you are near. I'm South West London
  10. Cheers matey! Can't believe I spent so much time looking for a nut that I had not lost ☺
  11. Urgent question, probably a stupid one... When fitting the tt pipe we no longer use the t30 screw on the turbo inlet do we??? Just spent 90 minutes searching the engine bay and floor for a lost nut but think it was only to screw in the old inlet. The tt pipe doesn't have this connector. TIA!
  12. Is anyone else having issues over camera running out of power after a few days of not driving? I have the magic pro and estimate it lasts about 2 days and then it is drained. It didn't help that it was almost constantly recording so I am playing with my sensitivity settings now. Had a recent example where this happened. Mycar sits on the drive looking across the road. I woke early to find 2 police cars on the opposite side of the road, one with a dog out at 4am. I thought it was my taxi but it was the police. I was going away for 2 days on business without the car and hoped to check footage when I got back. When I checked it had stopped filming the day before. I can only assume the power was drained. My initial experience is it looks fine when driving if you download footage that day but for parking it has some major pitfalls unless I can make some tweaks to make it last longer. I was expecting to be able to have at least 2 weeks of footage but that seems massively ambitious unless I use he car every other day and get a much bigger memory card.
  13. At end of three day the R is well specced out the factory. Essential options are Dynaudio, Panoramic sunroof (nice to see the sky but it is best for rear passengers) Other options are nice but not essential.
  14. Typical garage trying to offer a bodge job to fix it. They really are dim sometimes. Probably the paint job wasn't done by vw in the first place so they hope to just respray it and be done. Alloy refurbs and paint takes a few days normally. There should be no limit to how many times it is done. You would be looking at minimum 400 for all corners to get done and that should then come with 12 month warranty. Make sure vw give you some sort of warranty. Doesn't matter if the wheels get stone chips. If the paint flakes or comes away the job was done badly and needs redoing. If it were me I'd rather push for the cash and get them done at a proper refurb place. Garages don't like to give out cash though...
  15. I followed the guide and seemingly pushed it down too hard trying to get it to slot in...and the lower lug snapped off. I really wasn't putting much pressure on and I had slices some off the length and the slot but it wasn't going in. Has anyone fitted with just one lug? Very embarrassing. I can generally do a lot of car and did no problem. Stupid plastic lug...!
