  1. Yes I've seen a few vids and it does look an easy application. As soon as the weather clears and I'm off work I will get to work on the car and let you know how it goes.
  2. That looks like a super job. I will give it a go when I get the chance and will report how it goes.
  3. Wish I had known as I've splashed out on some. Never mind I just need a change in weather and some days of before I get stuck into it.
  4. Any of you guys tried the new ceramic spray from chemical guys. Apparently its real ceramic and gets some really good reviews, could be good for some like myself that likes to DIY and cant afford to have it professionally coated.
  5. Can anyone tell me how to find this option on obd 11as I've tried to find it myself with no luck
  6. A lad on face book who supplies and fits them called Shak H Shivji, he is a good honest lad that works in a garage in Bolton if you are close. The Performance centre in Sunderland also sells and fits them along with a few other tuners, just Google to find them. As with the settings just read through the many discussions about them on here and you will find all the info you need
  7. Best of cutting your losses and going JB4 if you want to stay with a tuning box. It gets fantastic reviews and if you look at the dragy leader board on the Golf R owners Facebook page the JB 4 is doing well and gets some good times on 0-60. I had a Dtuk box on my previous Focus st diesel and it would send the car into limp mode if the settings were to high so was not that impressed overall. The Jb4 covers more than fueling that the dtuk box covers so to me is a more safe and reliable box
  8. I am now Apr stage 2 with no problems at all, as are many people on here and the Facebook owners page. When stage 1 the car drove perfect and it is a massive jump in performance from stock, I am sure you will love it and just use the search option to find loads of info on it
  9. The difference from stock to stage 1is massive and really noticeable. I went Apr stage 1 in march and was over the moon with the way the car was transformed, I've mapped many cars and the Golf has shown the best gains from any car I have had done. Yesterday I went stage 2 and although not a massive jump from stage 1 but standard to stage 2 would be epic. Now stage 2 with pops and bangs the car just pulls and pulls to redline and just does not seem to get out of breath. I honestly don't think I would need to go any higher than stage 2 for daily driving.
  10. They want £50 per tip and £80 to fit which is a bit excessive so will be looking elsewhere
  11. Does anybody know anywhere in the north east of the UK that could supply and weld on some round exhaust tips to give it an aftermarket look
  12. I've got the res delete and that gives quite a lot of Burble and dsg farts so hopefully it sounds good when I eventually get my stage 2
  13. Take it out of sport and it's back to sociable mode so it's good for some fun but then when it needs to be quiet it can be
  14. Can i ask all you guys and girls in the know, I'm still waiting for my downpipe sports cat to come back into stock so I've been reading about APR stage 2 pops and bangs and that it should only be used with a decat but then I have read that some have it with a sports cat and all is fine. Can i have a definitive answer or is there not one, any advice is welcome and appreciated
