  1. Great work! I take it the calibration is done through ODIS once you have the board. Any plans of DLA setup/retrofit? Read conflicting info on headlights being same/different and on the passat even if the headlights are different DLA does work to an extent but not really seen anyone do it on a 7.5R. I have got the HBA retrofit by using the frameless mirror with built in camera but would be interested in doing this retrofit possibly if can get DLA on my 2018 7.5. Just a lot more effort involved changing windscreen, new camera, wiring just for lane assist and traffic signs on top of HBA I already have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Speak to Nomie Raja at NR Coding he does the activations. You can find his page on Facebook. If its an MIB 2 unit he may also be able to upgrade the screen to the facelift one for not a lot of money. He is one of the best in the business. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Don’t know if this will help. There are a few things that I have come across. 1. There have been quite a few DQ381 that have completely failed. These have all been 2017 built ones so far (apparently there is a faulty batch in some 2017 built cars). All have been between 20-40k miles so far that I have heard off and all have been replaced under warranty. I believe there may be a TPI or TSB on ERWIN with the batch of codes for the ones that were faulty (anyone can buy time on ERWIN might be an idea to buy 1 hour or 24 hours of time or you can ask your mate who works at VW to check for you). The last one I have heard of has just had a new gearbox as replacing the mechatronic did not resolve the issue. Two or may three of them are reported in the UK Golf R owners club Facebook group. 2. They start of with the symptoms you describe, then one set of gears become unselectable and finally the other set of gears fail too. One of the instances reported had his car booked in with the dealer and only had one set of gears selectable with the other set failing as he rolled into the dealership. Luckily it completely gave up for him as he arrived. Not positive information but information that may help nonetheless. Yours is the first one that has failed that VW aren’t replacing due to voiding warranty so would be interesting to know what the actual fault with the gearbox is as all the others have been replaced and all that they have been told is a faulty batch. Good luck and please keep us updated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. No this doesn’t. If you set up your phone as a wireless hotspot for the car to connect or buy s cheap wifi modem which is plugged in all the time (mine is plugged in to the 12v socket in the boot just for car net) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Damn never seen such a high AFR. Thought it was a typo lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Afr of 23/1? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Map 4 is good only up to 5000 rpm then dies to redline as boost is tapered off a lot. Heard Shak has had some good results with custom map 6, he uses absolute mapping v additive that George normally does. I’m now running an additive map 6 with 7 psi above stock and mine has responded really well to this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. TD1 will flag with a flash tune as the flash counter will show its been flashed. Also under SW version it won’t correspond to anything from factory on odis/vcds. You cannot get away with switchable maps regardless as the first thing that is checked is the flash counter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Interesting that. What map were you running? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. George at BMS has nailed a new custom Map 6 on my 7.5 pre wltp wagon. Running 3.8s (2 runs only done on this map with over half a tank with AC on, 23c with baby seat and a few bits of cargo) on draggy in the summer now whereas any of the older custom maps or any of the others on the latest firmware were running 4.18-4.25. My previous Map 6 best 0-60 was 3.94 and that was with an ambient of 7c, no cargo, baby seat and les than quarter tank. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Just wanted to point out that if you are looking to remove and install it for main dealer visits/warranty purposes this won’t work as the ECU’s flash counter will flag that the ecu has been flashed the very first time any map has been put on regardless of it being put back to standard.

  15. DSR perfection in Slough for a detail. Brilliant guy and his work and attention to detail is second to none. Sent another R owner from London there last week for a 2 stage correction and ceramic coating and he was blown away with the way it turned out. To refurbish Cadiz properly you are looking at 80-90 per wheel as they are diamond cut. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
