  1. shiny red R

    Just autoglym aqua wax and a bit of sweat! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Valves in the Exhaust

    Much better with a resonator delete and valves open get one and do it!
  3. Understanding and using your DSG box.....

    As a manual owner, that's all ive ever wanted... however I've just got an A6 black edition as our other car and could only get it with the s-tronic gearbox... it's simply brilliant - why didn't I go for this in my Golf?? manual now frustrates me on a daily basis.
  4. Dealers to avoid or recommend

    I've had services done and work done on both my VW and Audi motors at Midland VW in Cannock. The guys there are genuine VW nuts and do a bloody good job. Highly recommend them
  5. race mode

    Haven't seen a forum rule on this offence... but it sounds serious 😁 😂
  6. Ebiach Springs review

    Eibach pro springs were one of my first mods along with a set of 19" Cadiz, the wheel gap with standard 18" wheels and suspension - bothered me, the car just looked ordinary when I knew from driving it that it was anything but ordinary. Doing both made the car look and sit much more aggressively. The ride was spot on though, I've got a wife and 2 kids which means I would have got lots of feedback if it was anything else!
  7. Akrapovic tail tips

    still look good though! I cant keep my standard tips clean
  8. 5 mins max, normally within 2-3. Keep trying to drive it slowly until its warmed up, but its hard!
  9. race mode

    The only reason I noticed it was that every time my wife has driven the car she leaves it in Eco mode and I then switch it to race mode as soon as I get in. I noticed that it was considerably louder when I hit race mode fresh... so had a play today and now it makes sense!
  10. race mode

    I finally work this out just as I'm about to sell it. Doh!!!
  11. Springs

    eibach pro springs. Nice little drop without looking like it’s slammed. Little or no body roll and no compromise on ride quality... what’s not to like. One of the best things I did on mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. shiny red R

    Thanks yes 19" cadiz, spent a while finding an original VW set but with eibach springs - makes me smile most mornings 👍
  13. I see this car most mornings, lovely 5 door motor mostly shiny!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. race mode

    I’ve had my car for around 15 months now and have only just worked out that if you leave your car in race mode, when you switch off and start up again you have to press the button again to get the exhaust flaps to open.... more noticeable with the res delete... is this general knowledge and I’m just late to the party??!
