    Air Filter replacement

    Just swapped my air filter for a new paper one after 30,000 miles as it wasn't changed when the oil was changed as I am on a service plan. I can't believe they think 60,000 is acceptable. The difference is so marked in the throttle response that I have taken the pedal box down a notch. I won't be leaving so long next time, for the sake of £15 it's a no brainer!

    Screen Wash

    I use Sonax Nanopro Xtreme, it cleans really fast, works well for me. You can buy it on Amazon - https://www.amazon.co.uk/NanoPro-02325050-Anti-Freeze-Anti-Mist-Concentrate/dp/B00100LNDW/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_263_tr_t_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=6A6E4MKTG30VZVM338GD

    Ooooooh, it's fast...

    It depends on the model year. All 7.5’s came with CarPlay as standard, whereas some older models require a code to unlock the function that is only available through dealers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    App connect is expensive but well worth it in my opinion, it will transform the way you use the infotainment system and now allows you to use third party navigation apps such as Google maps and Waze. It is worth it just to be able to use Waze.
  5. Not this type but there are ones that would. The ones fitted to Bob's car are an h style, it branches from 1 outlet into 2 tips. what you would need is separate tips to fit each outlet, something like this I guess https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1-PC-B-Matte-Akrapovic-exhaust-car-carbon-Exhaust-Tip-car-styling-exhaust-pipe-muffler-tip/32866387034.html?spm=2114.search0104.3.109.210e4547eos7Tj&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_1_10065_10068_10130_318_10547_319_10548_317_10696_450_10192_5728811_10190_10084_10083_5025911_10618_452_535_534_10307_533_10820_532_10301_10821_10303_204_328_10059_10884_323_10887_100031_320_321_322_10103_448_449,searchweb201603_1,ppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=043db653-093c-4bd2-9acf-a5068851d353-15&algo_pvid=043db653-093c-4bd2-9acf-a5068851d353 but you would need to check the outside diameter of the outlets and if the length is suitable. Also I believe the stock tips are easier to remove on the 7 than on the 7.5.
  6. Looks great, is the quality good? Do you think they will fit the standard exhaust?

  8. I have been looking at these for a while but have been concerned about the length of them and how they would fit with the standard exhaust. Will be really interested to see how they fit and if you think they will fit with the standard back box.
  9. Nice work! APR stage? Nice exhaust with round pipes, looks great with the black wheels and mirror caps.

    New E10 Fuel

    I asked VW over their webchat and got directed to this website - https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/emissions/what-is-e10-fuel-and-how-could-it-affect-you/ It doesn't really tell you much except that it may be less fuel efficient! But i also found this - A 2011 study conducted by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland found practically no difference in fuel consumption in normal driving conditions between commercial gasoline grades 95E10 and 98E5 sold in Finland, despite the public perception that fuel consumption is significantly higher with 95E10. VTT performed the comparison test under controlled laboratory conditions and their measurements showed the cars tested used an average of 10.30 liters (2.27 imp gal; 2.72 U.S. gal) of 95E10 per 100 km (62 mi), as opposed to 10.23 liters (2.25 imp gal; 2.70 U.S. gal) of 98E5 per 100 km (62 mi). The difference was 0.07 in favor of 98E5 on average, meaning that using 95E10 gasoline, which has a higher ethanol content, increases consumption by 0.7%. When the measurements are normalized, the difference becomes 1.0%, a result that is highly consistent with an estimation of calorific valuesbased on approximate fuel composition, which came out at 1.1% in favour of E5.[50]

    1st Launch Control, made me feel sick

    You are right, you should be in S on the gearbox, I think you have to be at least 75 degrees on the oil temp. Better to be over 90. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    1st Launch Control, made me feel sick

    Press the ESP button for either a short press or a long one to turn off the traction control. Place your left foot on the brake and your right foot on the accelerator. Launch Control Active will appear on the dash. Raise the revs to between 3 and 4 thousand. Release the brake, floor the accelerator and hang on!
