  1. Think you have to use it properly to appreciate it hides the other side so well day to day.
  2. Ha, I had a helper supervising the hovering operation. Thanks for the kind messages folks, really nice to hear. I hope you will subscribe and keep watching. Any other Golf R video ideas appreciated too. Next up is Boxster Spyder so looking forward to that one.
  3. Cheers Andy hope you enjoyed it, I'm aiming to gain experience of as many cars as possible and showcase the awesome roads and scenary we have.
  4. I'll have to make one for them next !
  5. I'm fortunate living up here can get to some amazing places quite quickly. I wasn't much of a VW guy before the R, always preferred BMW anc bought this as a practical daily, bit I've ended up being quite fond of it, it's such a great car.
  6. Thanks for the great feedback guys, it's just a hobby and pretty much just me and a camera. If you can spare the time, some comments, likes and click on subscribe helps me with the youtube algorithms and spreading the video further.
  7. Can you believe it's been 5 years since the R was released. I've made a little video of reviewing it while driving some scenic roads in Scotland. Check it out, would you still buy one today, I think I probably would.
  8. I've had my thermostat changed and I noted the coolant level has dropped from max ever so slightly, I had thought it was just a bedding in issue, but it has done it again 6 months later, anyone else found the same? No sign of leaks anywhere. It's a tiny amount so probably nothing to worry about but annoying nonetheless.
  9. If you know someone with a sewing kit they can probably pull the threads back through.
  10. I've got the revised foam base I got on warranty on eBay if anyone wants one. I ended up with another seat base as I had a mark on the cloth so changed it out. It's easy enough to swap over if you know upholstery.
  11. The bolster on the base got saggy. The original version crumbles over time, material wise it was fine.
  12. They did my seat base under warranty. They have changed the part number of of the foam pieces so they know there is an issue.
  13. You can open the calliper manually by opening the electronic unit. Very easy.
  14. Mine had this problem but they managed to fix it with the grease. They said they had to completely remove the lower arm and apply. Hopefully it lasts.
  15. My car is back in for another claim. Leaking coolant from the theromstat housing seal (suggest everyone in warranty unscrews the undertray and has a look for traces of red/orange fluid as it's almost 4 figures to repair at the dealer), broken bushing and the arms being removed and greased for creaks.
