  1. OP I’d get your dealer to change the front brakes free of charge. My R had a warped disc from factory and I couldn’t get back to the dealership for a 2week road trip and over 1200 miles. They changed the front discs and pads free of charge. I’d try this first before paying out.
  2. Think your a little misinformed there as the Mu pads are known for they're high cold bite relatively little and non corrosive dust output and allround excellent quality and non fade properties πŸ‘
  3. Project Mu clubracer pads new in the box in the classifieds for near half price. These are serious track day pads and have an awesome reputation. Have a Google. Id go with a grooved disc rather than drilled if using on track m tec or nitrac are proven dicscs for the R.
  4. Well spotted as on this alignment I had the Superpro LCAS on which add positive caster and it felt awesome stability wise after this and KWV3S with MPS4S πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ
  5. Your right mate I wouldn’t give a dealership the satisfaction of asking to do alignment on something I had had tinkered with πŸ€”πŸ€£ keep them old MPS4S for a track day as well πŸ‘πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜
  6. The hunter I paid for as I had changed all the suspension to KWV3S Dave πŸ‘ but The VW alignment I had done on this das Walt warranty Tiguan was done FOC as I complained about it listing left on tracking so the master tech came out for a ride and put it through a full alignment. after My R I’ll be doing it on anycar I buy from a dealership again Dave. Glad I did as the Tiguan was out quite a bit.πŸ‘
  7. I am sure this would cause a little oversteer on lift off going for it. Rear steer 😳 when you’re not expecting it πŸ‘ go and get a hunter alignment or get VW to do it I just had mine done by them FOC on a 3 plus years old Tiguan πŸ‘
  8. Good call keano πŸ‘ I did put Mine through a Hunter alignment and it was out slightly from new.
  9. Good call bud πŸ‘ keep at it it took some time for Me to settle into the different driveline setup to a rear biast 4wd . But in the end it felt great and did exactly what I wanted of it and more. So don’t hesitate to drive through it and as others have mentioned weight transfer may play a part as like My setup your on standard suspension which is firm but it can’t go any stiffer or softer like dcc so this could also contribute.
  10. I had the very same feeling on My R when new it felt like lift off over steer then corrects itself in a millisecond then more lift off understeer and more correcting itself again. All this happened in like 2 seconds but felt very unnerving and really going for it on a varied camber bypass πŸ˜³πŸ€” This is mostly felt when lifting off the power though I thought at the time. I put it down to the rear haldex doing its thing as I never had this feeling on My previous Macans and one was a 440bhp Turbo and held down flat out on the same roads and nothing whatsoever but grip grip grip. perhaps it’s a drive through it thing and after the first unsettled feeling and the haldex diff is fully engaged and you have fully 4wd then it’s fine and you can throw it into anything.😎😎 give it a shot if you get the chance on a private airstrip of course. πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ Quite a few members have found this feeling. its all down to mechanics Inmho.
  11. Know what you mean bud I loved the 18” 8.5 et45 in winter πŸ₯Ά with 235 40 18 They really filled the arches well. soon to go in the classifieds though 😒😒
  12. KWV3S. Cades 8x19” et48 with 5mm rear spacers and after a month very missed 😳😒😒
  13. I was running Superpro front lower control arms with 4 silicone bushes ( now in the classifieds) so I don’t think it’s those πŸ€”πŸ‘
  14. I think you’re issues may be down to the central plastic dust shield boot that sometimes rubs the strut and squeaks. This is common on the golf suspension sorry I forgot to mention it. I did vigorously manhandle My set through the springs but I also sprayed the silicone spray all over the boots and that did sort the squeaking out. sorry bud you just jogged My memory.πŸ‘
  15. Dazie had some initial issues with his KWV3S dcc but they have been great for years since.
