    Manual 7R gears 1-3 gear changes awful

    Yeah it’s a 2015 I’ve been toying with the idea of an additive to allow a slicker shift. I’m not sure about warm changes to be fair I do mostly short journeys and town driving so use 1-3 the most and it is frustrating.. 4-6 are dreamy 4-3 is a bit lumpy. I also find if I’m over 4K revs the change is better but obviously in town I’ll be into the back of some one before i get third [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Had my R over a year now it’s got 30k on the clock and had 23k when I bought it. I find gear changes 1-3 are absolutely awful. I thought it was clonky before whilst it was still in warranty. Took it in a few times Vw drove it tested it and said can’t see anything wrong feels normal. I tested a manual before this one and I couldn’t remember that feeling quite as bad. Never misses a shift but just feels awful. 1-2 especially has anyone had anything similar? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Lazy good results detailing

    Hi some of you may have seen already but I have corrected my paint and got amazing results. As much as I enjoy doing all the claying, glazing and waxing etc. Looking for a “quick” 1hr wash, with great results and some form of protection. Is a decent shampoo and quick Detailer the way forward or just a very good wash and wax?? What is the best products for a weekly/fortnightly wash? Shampoo? Wheels? Protection? Interior?

    Accent lighting on doors??

    Yeah that’s true I thought that first week having the car I do think the golds a bit basic in the back. Even the air vent just looks cheap in the centre console Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Accent lighting on doors??

    Starting to sound less fun.. haha My old man has a vrs Octavia and as part of his dash controls he can set all the lighting colours. I know the GTD is white GTI RED AND R blue was just wondering if it was able via vag com but no bother I’m not going to go to the extent of changing the door cards..

  11. Got a tornado R and obviously all the lighting in the R is blue, wondering if anyone has tried fitting the red GTI accents or able to record it possibly? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
