  1. If I'm honest tracking it doesn't interest me that much. Don't get me wrong the R is a very fast and capable car but I think sometimes it may not feel as quick due to the 4wd. It's ideal for me because I drive my wife's corsa cdti for commuting Monday to Friday and only drive the R on the weekend for the odd b road blast.
  2. I find that even stage 1 the in gear acceleration isn't mind blowing. 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear it's very quick with the dsg and 4wd grip but after that it's very flat. Maybe I'm just used to it now and need something faster 😂

    Slight Coolant Leak (another one!)

    I had the smallest of leaks a couple of month back and replaced water pump and radiator as there was a tiny leak on the radiator. Think it was around £600 parts and labour and no leaks since.

    White Smoke from exhaust?

    At least you have warranty. Mine is stage 1 so thought the worse but was a cheap enough fix. Try not to think the worse 👍

    White Smoke from exhaust?

    Unfortunately that does not sound good. I didn't really lose much oil if any. Aparantly even a few drops of oil in the exhaust can cause a lot of smoke. Do you still have warranty?

    White Smoke from exhaust?

    It's my car on the other link. I had a similar issue, put my foot down and when I got up to decent speed a huge cloud of smoke but no loss of boost, pulled over for 5 minutes started the car again and smoke was gone. Went out again and tried on the same type of road and this time smoke again and went into limp mode. Turned car off and waited 10 minutes and then was fine again. Garage I go to did every test they could and everything was fine. Fault turned out to be the pcv valve had a slight leak so replaced that and done 300 miles since with no issues. Is the car smoking even after you have turned it off and on?

    Eibach pro kit

    Hi all Replacing my brakes at the end of the month with better discs and pads and just put new Michelin rubber on. Thinking of getting some springs fitted at the same time. What's everyone's views on the eibach pro kit, my wife uses the R as a daily driver so don't want ride too stiff. There seems to be a few places selling the springs, anyone have a link to the cheapest place to buy them from? Also any other cheap handling mods that I should add whilst I'm there? Thanks
  11. Thanks I'll take a look
  12. Does anyone have the link for the grooved nitrac discs as there seems to be different types on their website?
  13. I think by the way this post is going I will get standard discs and pads for rear, what make is best brembo or pagid. For the fronts I think I'll get grooved nitrac front discs with tarox strada pads with race brake fluid. Should be a decent enough upgrade and not break the bank
  14. I need new pads for the rear too. Would you just get standard pads for the rear
  15. Thanks for the info, checked the website and the discount still works. How much roughly are the ebc pads for front and rear. I know the ds2500 are around £350 which seems pricey.
