  1. Im sure if you ask her with your big smile Dave sheโ€™ll melt and let you guaranteed ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚
  2. I havenโ€™t tracked but I would change the front lower control arms if going on circuit. I added Superpro lower control arms ( in the classifieds) that add at least 1/2 a degree negative camber and 1.2 degrees positive caster which made a fantastic difference in steering feel wheel location and ridgidity up front. easily the best mod I did for front end improvements. night and day difference to Me they really sharpen all front imputs.๐Ÿ‘
  3. I ran the KWV3S for around 14months and found them fantastic and fitted Oem top mounts and bearings new at installation ( now in the classifieds) I had no issues of clunky sounds this maybe down to noisy track control arm bushes which VW fix with using a grease to smear in the bushes etc. I tried spraying an oil over them which helped until it dries out but I think thatโ€™s your problem. The KWV3S are designed to use all the standard suspension geometric fixtures just like Oem so no need for longer links etc. hope this helps Jon
  4. Traded My mid 17R 7.5R returned to standard โ˜บ in 2weeks ago now bought new for 32k, 36k retail covered 27800miles and had 21400 for it near 2 years old so pretty good in my book and an easy exchange for a more suitable to my mobility older tiguan ๐Ÿ˜Š its no R but its a great chunky cosseting ride. Lost 25k on the exact same deal age and mileage on my last Macan turbo so the golf has impressed on value for money ๐Ÿ‘ I see its up for 23590 at the main dealers so they price them to sell and give a good buy in price.
  5. And in a weeks time youโ€™ll soon be the proud owner of yet another set of awesome black rims on your ride Dave ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž
  6. I have always noticed this on My 7.5R a small whine for a couple of rotations from cold . I always thought it may be the rubbish water pump housing issues some Rโ€™s get ๐Ÿค” still there after 27000 miles.
  7. I had simular rubbing identical to this but running KWV3S fairly low with 19โ€ MPS4S tyres.and Superpro front lower control arms that move the front wheels further forward a degree. its to do with the front subframes they can be too far forward from the factory and on one side only. I partly fixed by undoing all wheel well bolts then pushed the liner in and up while tightening the bolts back up. On a hunter wheel alignment jig we pulled the subframe back equally each side .
  8. I found the KWV3S great. They came on factory settings and I slackened off 2 clicks all round. comfort wise they were silky smooth and perfect for the wife's happiness running on MPS4S 19". Like you if I was running solo constantly I would of stiffened them up and they still would of been great comfort wise. I was surprised how well they work slackened off. Now removed and in the classifieds next week ๐Ÿ˜• as we're downgrading to a crossover. Ill really miss them they were excellent and had huge composure at speed.
  9. Loos awesome Rob very futuristic inside and I love it. ๐Ÿ˜ฎbet you canโ€™t wait to get it by scruff and see what it can do ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜ good on ya bud ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  10. Thatโ€™s awful OP. I think a large amount of Rs are suffering this issue My mid 17 mk7.5 is showing signs of it now on 26 k and Iโ€™m trading in next week and Vw havenโ€™t offered any fix or even acnokledgement of it as a fault.
  11. I had the exact same thoughts and did the pedal box plus first nearly two years ago on a mk7.5 hatch and loved the adjustability and just switched it off throughout two VW services. later added a TT intake pipe and K&N element with a JB4 on a custom map 6 and it did it for Me ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž best value for money and piece of mind over risk of warranty worries and would do it again in a flash. I have remapped in the past and itโ€™s great if out of warranty but not for those who get nervous about the worst happening.
  12. My little dog always travels with us and sits on the ski drop down so even the stock exhaust sounds better ๐Ÿ˜
  13. We know.... you always seem a commando type of guy ๐Ÿ‘
  14. Turbo technics pipe was fantastic on My R ... proven and tested and now in the classifieds ๐Ÿคจ
  15. Yes removed it as Iโ€™m selling the R โ˜น๏ธ ( going on to a cheaper SUV ๐Ÿ™) and reinstating the original resonator. Much too quiet now.๐Ÿ˜ฌ
