  1. Sorry, I didn’t even give it a thought! Understood - I’ll sort out a thread in Classifieds.

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    I have for sale my 2015 GTI (not quite an R). Unmarked Silver paintwork, Sat Nav, rear sensors, start button. When I say this is immaculate, I really mean it. The car had a full detail, including engine bay, interior and wheels etc. Always hand washed with 2 bucket method. Only 33,500 miles. Brand new genuine VW mats, new stainless footrest and new Audi gear knob (GTI branded) - original items included. Premium GTI badged boot carpet (one off bespoke). Full service history (last service carried out at VW Oct 2020, less than 1,000 miles ago included brake fluid and major service). Wheels just refurbished by Lepsons (and ceramic coated), so mint. Michelin PS4 tyres like new – all 7mm. All brakes replaced at dealer, water pump/thermostat and top mounts replaced under warranty! New Bosch battery with 5 year warranty. DSG Service completed early. Hatch drain tube replaced as a precaution. Always ran on Shell VPower fuel. Cannot be many in this condition, and with the weak points all addressed. I cannot see this costing the new owner much at all for some time. Any questions, please ask. Bromley, Kent £16,500 (firm I’m afraid).

  3. VW technician confirmed that models with AGM batteries from new are set to Fleece.
  4. Surely Halfords ect must come across this, but I guess they only replace like for like.....
  5. That would be fantastic - thanks
  6. Thanks. Battery manufacturer not interested - placed in the too difficult pile! It seems that certain Audi RS models are fitted with AGM batteries from factory, so would would really help would be to see what setting they are on.....
  7. That's my post on the Ross Tech forum....! Still unsure, as no science/explanation behind the suggestions.
  8. Or perhaps it just doesn't matter....!
  9. This is the issue, no-one seems to have an evidence technical view...... I have used Binary AGM (their is not simple AGM selection, but based on the above from the Varta website, perhaps Fleece is more appropriate....? Thanks again.
  10. Thanks very much. The Varta link below refers to AGM batteries as Fleece, so confused! https://batteryworld.varta-automotive.com/en-gb/efb-or-agm-which-battery-do-i-need Maintenance-free and leakproof AGM batteries (“AGM” stands for “Absorbent Glass Mat”, because the electrolyte is bound in an absorbent glass fleece) are powerful batteries for automatic start-stop systems and have very good cold start characteristics. Thanks to the cycle stability of an AGM battery, a warm engine can be switched off and started again several times at short intervals, withou
  11. Hi All Has anyone coded their own battery on replacement? I have replaced with a Bosch 096 AGM, and based on research used VOA as manufacturer (same battery as Varta), changed the serial number, checked that the rating is correct (70 Ah), but what selection is appropriate for an AGM battery - Binary AGM or Fleece? Seem to be conflicting views...... Many thanks
  12. Sorry, it’s a while ago I did this, but yes, I recall just removing the plastic trim.
  13. Just dropped the headlining down a little at the rear, plenty of room to work.
  14. Hi, nothing specific as I recall. Chain drilled then a simple hand file to finish.
