    Clubsport brakes.

    The Brake disc and pads are the same. Difference with the performance brakes compared to OEM standard brake setup is, performance brakes discs are drilled, a kilo lighter (per disc) and the disc bells are made from a different alloy (so doesn't rust like stock OEM). I believe the performance brake pad are made from a different compound and should give more bite compared to stock. I just did the upgrade on my R, and personally i feel the car is better in the corners and feel slightly more nimble? In hindsight i did also change the tyres from Continental 5Ps to MPS4S 😆. Here is the new setup.

    Those alloys look great 👍. Are they 19" inches?

    What a coincidence 😅. I am also a H Latif and i bought my 2018 golf R in May. i was going to go with DPB, but decided on Indium Grey in the end. This is my Golf R, enjoy 😆.

They were straight forward to fit, the most difficult part was to make sure you don't crack the original indicators when removing them and making sure the screws do not fall into the mirror housing itself.
  6. I have also noticed squeaking coming from my rear left window on my 5dr hatchback. Very irritating and has been more noticeable when it is cold and dry.
  7. You will get another setting in the car lighting menu known as background lighting where you would be able to scroll through the colours.
  8. Yep, so this is the code i used. These instructions are from another forum but i'm not sure where the origin of the coding has come from. i did this exactly then rebooted the infotainment system and it worked. Below are 10 example RGB codes along with the coding required.
  9. I have had this experience before with the dealers damaging my brand new car bumper. As you made the service manager aware already and there is video evidence there is pressure on them to rectify the issue, if walk around video was after work. Normally they do a visual inspection to highlight existing vehicle damage, so they should know what new damage was caused after car was taken in for service. Walk around done first thing or after work was done? If before then will be hard to prove the dealer caused it. If after then you may have a chance of them sorting the issue out. best to see if in the video there was any other vehicle on the right of it which may have potentially caused the ding and see if its plausible that that vehicle door may have caused the ding. in my experience they will sort it out if its a minor issue and they have a bodyshop on site or nearby, as it is less hassle.

    Wrong bumper on Golf R?

    Mines most likely was also from an R-line as well. I assume your kit fits onto the black lower centre grille with straight slats, which is why it wasn't compatible with the customer front bumper?

    Wrong bumper on Golf R?

    I think their compensation is reasonable and after the front sensors is repaired, this fiasco would be a thing of the past. Right now every time i drive i get the ParkPilot warnings, constantly reminding me of the dealers shoddy work 😁. Like you said the headlight scratch would polish out over time and tbh i would probably not even remember it was ever there once it does.
  12. So i have been meddling around with my OBDEleven and mange to incorporate various colours into the setting so the AID can be any colour desired. 10 different colours can be chosen from the car setup screen and can be changed at any time. In addition i also enable which i call the infinity dot display (not sure what actual name is) on the AID which does a cool animation when moving through the menus. Here is a pic of my favourite setups and how it compares to the normal display. i do have videos showing the infinity dots animation and colour cycling but i'm not sure how to embed them here.

    When did the customer realise the bumper was incorrect?
