    18"s VS 19"S

    Quite right, but in this case thats the idea. To try and get a little more sidewall for added comfort whilst ataining a little more traction via the 10mm increase in width. It'll show less than a 1mph difference at 60mph.[emoji106] Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    18"s VS 19"S

    That isnt a bad shout. Just dropped my DCC R on Eibachs and it has made comfort mode more like normal used to be. I'm running 235 35 19s currently. I could go 245 35 19 I guess as my rims are 8.5s. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    Res delete

    Also the difference the 7 speed boxes ratios has on drone is huge. It seems that a normal res delete on a mk7 with the 6 speed box is likely to cause drone, whereas on the mk7.5 with the 7 speed drone doesnt occour. I've had a res delete on my 7.5 since the day the car was delivered and have driven to south of france and back and no drone at all. The car sounds just about perfect to me.

    Roof box

    No mate, they are Riva BNZs. Tbey come with a diamond cut lip but I wrapped that gloss black. Good fitment too as they are 19x8.5 et 44 so sit the same as running 10mm spacers on prets. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    Roof box

    Not an estate, but looks good to me. Same bars. Love Whispbars, by far the best out there.

    19" Wheel fitment

    8.5s will be fine and be pretty flush fitting. 9.5s will stick out 25mm more than the stock wheel. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    Matte black wheels and how to take care

    No worries. I decon'd them witb ironx then a washed off with fairy liquid Nd rinse. Dry, then wipe with down with IPA. Once coated I was able to wash them with normal car shampoo. Theres no need to avoid shampoos with wax as once sealed it wont stick to them. Same process when you start to see it become more difficult to clean. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    Matte black wheels and how to take care

    My previous car, an A45 amg, had matte black wheels from the factory. I used Nanolex matte sealant on them with great effect. Very easy to apply and once done they washed off brake dust with ease. Good product and relatively cheap. I found that it needed reapplying about every 8 months. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    JB4 on Turbo

    I dont think whether its JB4 or mapped makes a difference. Both increase boost to make more power and thats what breaks turbos. I dont think you should worry. As said above there are litterally 10s of thousands of Rs worldwide and many many thousands are mapped without issue. Maybe 1 in every 1000 has a turbo issue but I doubt its even that many.

    Lowering Springs Without Spacers

    Can you post up a link please ? I'd like to order some and at that price I'd be mad not too !! Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  13. This is a great read guys. Its nice to see a balanced set of opinions when discussing other marques, and no play ground bickering!! I'd have to agree that the BM was just quicker. The torque they make is silly, and its not just tge power and torque remember, its also the gearing. The gearbox and final drive ratios can make a 1.0l very fast ! The only but of thia whole thread I'd agrgue with us the "no replacemement for displacement" bit. The modern BMs use a large engine AND a turbo (sometimes 2) and its the turbo that gives ths torque. My old RS4 have a 4.2l V8 and to make it move you ALWAYS had to drop at least 2 gears as its torque band was so narrow and pound for pound (or sqcm for sqcm) was less than golfs. OP go for a JB4 if worried about warranty. It makes a massive difference and is way more akin to how the R should be. I too have warranty issues so run one myself. To put it into perspective (and whilst on the BM subject) I raced my mates M2 (which his dealer believes to be tuned as its so quick) and (as we were on a roll) I kept level pegging from 50 to 145 and as we approched the top of those numbers I appeared to be making a tiny tiny lead appear.

    Detailing spray

    I was loosing faith in humanity for a minute there. I cn believe it took to the last post for somone to mention whatvis generally regarded as one of the best Detailers out there !! Sonax BSD. Cheap as chips and brilliant shine and the best beading of any detailer I've used (which includes all of the ones mentioned!!). I still come back to it. It can be a bit grabby but as long as you dont over apply its good to use. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    Exhaust Advice

    To be honest the vieos of the pops and bangs dont do them justice. They all sound aweful in videos but in reality they sound much nicer, and only do it when you go hard on the throttle. You dont need to worry about it cracking or banging on the way to the local shops. What is nice though is the added burbles on the overun. A touch of throttle in 3rd to about 3k at 30mph, come off the throttle and she burbles away like a V8. Love it.
