    Highest average mpg?

    I know what you mean. It depends on the conditions. In rush hour I use the minimum gap setting. You can still use the throttle when you feel people starting to nudge in. It’s taken me a while to get used to but I’m getting better every day. ACC isn’t for everyone but I think once you know it’s weak spots you can adjust accordingly. With my wife and child in the car the leave it set to the third gap option. Zero complaints from all onboard makes for a much nicer journey. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’ve got a manual. When using the ACC, Eco mode accelerates slower back up to the set speed. This helps hugely with your MPG. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So which wheel woolies set would you recommend? Not admitting my new toy won’t be up to the job just curious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    To be honest I love a gadget. You know those catalogs aimed at old people that sell all in one slippers and bean bag trays, I love them! I’m sure it’ll be rubbish but even if I use it on my wheel arches I’ll be happy. Will try on the wife’s car first. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’ve just ordered one of these bad boys. Not sure if it’ll be any good or not but worth a try. Has anyone else seen or tried one? https://stuffcandy.com/collections/automotive/products/360-wheel-brush-hero Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I do 40mpg daily on my boring M25 journey. Best I’ve had is 43mpg, 44 miles. All non motorway driving in Race mode and all motorway in Eco. I know many people will not see the point in owning a car like this and popping it into Eco mode but that’s exactly the reason I bought it. My commute is big and I love having a quick car but I also need to get more than 400 miles per tank of fuel. The R ticks all the boxes.

    Help me decide between DSG and Manual

    Sorry for the delay James. New family member has stopped all lap top time. I have the Sachs Organic clutch. Great bit of kit, would highly recommend.

    Help me decide between DSG and Manual

    I have a manual and love it. Do consider though you will need to upgrade the clutch and it will be stiff. If that is an issue then DSG would be a safe bet. If you are located near Berkshire you can try mine out if that helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hello, This is my first Whisbar. I have always had Thule on my old Golfs with the same fitment. The rubber pad behind the mounting bracket is a much better design than Thule. I think they are a safer fit. A mark will be left when I remove them but nothing a polish won't be able to remove.
  11. Small Roof Rack Decals added. The Whispbar logo always bothered me on my roof rack so I put vinyl wrap over their logo and added the “R” sticker. It’s the small touches I love. Or it’s just an excuse to get out and enjoy the sun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Creaking from front left ....ARGH!!!!!

    I had nothing in my Mk5. This is very warm weather related and not influenced by the turn of the wheel. It’s fine at the moment due to the fact it’s freezing outside!

    Creaking from front left ....ARGH!!!!!

    A common problem them with little chance of it being resolved. My cars 2014 so I won’t get it under warranty. Guess I’ll just have to live with it (honestly don’t think I can). Thanks for all the replies confirming I’m not on my own with this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. So my car has developed a ridiculous, intermittent creaking from the front left. Potentially the suspension but I can’t replicate it pushing the car down by hand. It seems to happen when it’s warmer and is only audible at lower speeds but it is loud and very annoying. It’s definitely not the common door frame squeak. My question is has anyone else had the same problem and found a solution? It’s driving me crazy, please help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    First clean after a ceramic coating.

    Wow, that’s great, thank you. I’ll look into which one will be best. I’m using Williams ceramic coat. Not sure they have a huge range of products. After a commute around the M25 today the car looks like it did in the first pics already! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
