  1. That looks like someones slightly photoshopped a new A class to me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. No probs bud, will be interesting to see [emoji106] one thing that does my head in is cruddy tail pipes and the R suffers badly with it ha ha. I feel like im forever cleaning them so i was thinking a dark titanium maybe gunmetal sort of colour would help hide it slightly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Awesome job there jeff [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Sounds good, is black chrome like gloss black or like a dark titanium sort of? I was thinking of darkening mine off but not black so they still look metal if that makes sense. Would still like a difference between the them and the rear diffuser. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks bud, they where £39 a piece i think so around £80 for the pair. Ordered from auto doc and cannot fault them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Finally fitted new rear discs and pads today. The old ones where scored and knackered. Went with brembo coated so no more rusty hubs or rotor edges hopefully [emoji1695] Old scored ones New coated brembo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks bud, i was going to go in today but ordered from auto doc instead. Went for the brembo rear 310mm plain coated and pads to match, should be ok hopefully. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Another daft question but does anyone know what size rear pads you need? Euro car has different size options. (Standard calipers) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Never been a big Subaru fan to be fair, only liked the older impreza’s but i was a lot younger then ha ha but i will admit thats quite nice your legacy, a little more subtle than the Impreza imo which is a good thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Possibly mk6 R seats going by the date? 08-13 I dont know though just hazarding a guess. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Vcds coding

    Thanks bud really appreciate that [emoji106] Think I’ve sorted it though. I had my exhaust valves coded open but recently had a resonator delete fitted the other week. It hums like a good one on a motorway run so wanted to code them back on to see if it helped soften the drone a bit. Cant really say i noticed much difference other than it been quieter when in eco overall but still drones at higher constant speed. Anyway I’ve coded them back open ha ha dropped the soundaktor to 80% too to take the edge off it which i quite like, its a little less intrusive and doesn’t vibrate the dash as much now. The only one i wanted to do but cannot find the right channels for was increase the day light running LED’s a little bit, not much just a bit more but its no biggie so I’m happy without messing with them to be fair. Waiting for OBD eleven to come onto IOS and then il pick that up. vcds is very good but it can be a bit confusing and long winded ay. I was going to buy a cheap tablet purely for obd eleven but now they are going to release an ios version i will wait. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yes! Spot on thank you bud [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Whatever or however it looks and performs it will still be no where near the RS3 or the A45 which is a shame. Ive read some articles actually saying it will be less power output than the current version due to emissions and new Rules/regs. I hope not but I can see that to be honest. Is it true that the newest R’s currently coming off the line are only producing around 285 bhp due to this new kind of dpf filter for petrols thing on them and other emissions stuff? Im hopeful for a decent rework to pop up and at least 350 hp to try and keep up with its rivals, 400 would be nice but I’m doubtful (zero hybridisation though because that will ramp the cost up significantly and weight etc...) I cant see a kind of plus model either as it doesnt really make much sense in a business way. Theres already alot of golf variants and unless it was a significant jump i dont think it would catch on. A stripped out, no seats in the back and 15hp more R is not something i would be looking at lol and definitely not with the price hike that would bring either. On another hand I actually wouldn’t be surprised if vw scrapped the R altogether and went more with GTI variants and GTE/hybrid golfs lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Agree i dont think what mine does is what was originally mentioned by the op or others. When i say cold i dont mean ambient temperature, im referring to the car itself ie engine/oil isnt warmed up. Might have to try and get a recording of it just for reference here to see if its a similar sound to others. It actually kind of sounds like worn/rusty discs grating if that makes sense.

  15. Yes is a weird one, went for a brisk drive out today and then plugged in once i got home, no faults and nothing a miss, tried s bit of live data while running and seems all ok. I will keep this thread updated as i go but hoping there is nothing to update with [emoji1695] Yeah im good thanks bud, same old. Had a few operations for my bowel issues last year but all good and back to full throttle again now [emoji6] hope alls well your end [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
