  1. This sort of thing for me is the negative of buying a German car where too many features are options. With the price tag of a Golf R this should be standard.
  2. Great results! Very jealous of the road you’ve got there, wish I had something similar to use. Would be interested to see a 60-100 mph run, think this gives a good indication of power as it takes out the variables of getting of the line.
  3. My other vehicle is a VW T5, bought from VW Chelmsford Van Centre. My experience is its like Arthur Daley car sales with a VW sign above the door. Avoid!!!
  4. I messed up my card when I tried to update it, that was using an Apple Mac though! In the end I bought a used one from eBay for £30, or take Dave up on his kind offer, you just need to make sure it’s the right number on the card.
  5. Did you have it mapped with the L450 turbo, if so how did that go also why did you go Airtech rather than the usual Wagner intercooler? Thats the route I would like to go when funds permit.
  6. Yeah will make it easier to clean the brake caliper! Just noticed the Cadiz are made by Borbet as well so sort of OEM. May get some VW center caps if I can find the right size.
  7. Just me and you then😂 I think they suit the R perfectly and the 235s are a great fit, hopefully they will cope better with the rubbish roads round here. Tyre and wheel are each 1.6kg lighter than the Cadiz with 225s I was going to go for the Matt black but Tyre Leader only had this colour at a price hard to say no to so went for them and am glad I did, they actually look better in reality than in the photos.
  8. Mine is unicorn mate, was ur issues with the 7speed box?? From what I've read all tuners can get problems This is why a chose a tuner near to me so it would be easier to sort any issues.
  9. Your launch looks fairly brutal, are you stage 2. Could be some torque limiting going on to protect the gearbox. If you have OBDelleven have you checked the settings for Torque limiting and Starting vibration. On mine Torque limiting was off, couldn't turn starting vibration off but can't remember what it was set to.
  10. No its around 3000, the DSG tune has 2 launch revs controlled by the kick down button, haven't tried the higher one yet. Do you think its faster to change up manually before it auto shifts?
  11. interesting what you say as there is definitely a dip on the acceleration graph, I haven't noticed anything as pronounced as in your video though. The launch off the line is fantastic no problems there and I let it auto change, all happens to fast for me to manual shift!
  12. Just did mine,10,000 miles Mk7.5 Oil a bit dirty but filter cleanish.
  13. Just did another 0-60 tiny bit faster
  14. After reading many many 18” vs 19” wheel threads I’ve finally bought these to replace my Cadiz wheels. Borbet FF1 18x8 ET45 Just under 9.6kg on the scales. I do prefer the look of 19” wheels but I made the decision purely on the better ride of 18” as I live in the sticks and have to travel on potholed roads to get anywhere. I would like your thoughts on what size tyres to go for, I quite like the idea of 235s for the extra width due to the 8” rim vs 7.5” of the Cadiz. I don’t like the stretched look, a bit more side wall would fill the arches better and the diameter is closer to that of the 19” Tyres will be Michelin PS4 225 40 r18 = dia 637.2mm 235 40 r18 = dia 645.2mm 235 35 r19 = dia 647.1mm
