  1. I had it done by a firm called KM vinyl near Gatwick. They basically used a Laminex type film. And thanks for the compliment [emoji106][emoji4] Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  2. The 2nd one is the 80mm version. The first is the 3" or 76mm so is slightly smaller. Doubt it'd make much difference on stage 2.
  3. But I presume that you lock your front door to stop thieves simply walking in a taking the key ? Which is about as much effort as putting the key in a pouch ? I totally get it if you are paying for somthing you dont see the point of, however I assume you would have bought the R if keyless was a standard feature ? Surely your not saying that its such a negative feature that it would stop you buying the car ? I know things like colour are very personal, for instance I seem to be the only person that doesnt like Oryx White, and I certainly wouldn't pay the ludicrus sum they want for it. But I also dont like leather seats, but if the golf came with them as standard it wouldnt stop me buying it, and I wouldnt rule out 2nd hand R's because they have leather as I may be missing out on a great car for the sake of it. I may sound like I'm being arsey, but I'm genuinely not. If this thread was simply "is keyless worth paying for" then you'd have said no, and I'd have said yes, and that would be the end of it. What I'm getting at is that its a strange thing to limit the cars you're looking at to ones without keyless given that it adds no value. If there are 10 for sale and 8 have keyless, are you seriously saying you'd only look at the 2 ? Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  4. Well it is each to their own. I like having it. Its no bother at all to put the key in a pouch when I get home. I find it odd that people seem to walk around the house with the keys in your pockets. If not then there really is no difference in chucking the keys in a pouch by the front door, or just chucking them on the side. I fail to see the downside of keyless. As I say it is each to their own so it makes little odds to me. That being said two of you used the word "spec" in your reply which means I assume you bought new (as did I). With that in mind its a bit different to what the op is doing. To spec a car new means that you are getting EXACTLY what you want and for a price you're prepared to pay, and its brand new. For example Gregozedobe above may not have wanted Keyless, but clearly it wasnt enough to stop him from buying the wagon. The OP conversly is effectively ruling out possible good cars because they have a feature that (on a 2nd hand car at least) costs nothing extra to own, and has no real downsides. For starters you can turn it off, and secondly you can use the keyfob like an old fasioned blipper. To me its like ruling out all the cars with Dynaudio because it means they have a sub rather than a spare. Still if you find keyless that much of burden then so be it.

  5. I think you're somewhat missing the point. The OP is actively looking for a car without it. Whilst I agree it can be lived without, it seems a strange thing activly not want.
  6. Why wouldnt you want Keyless ? Its no less secure if you keep the key in a pouch where you usually keep your keys. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk

    Wax based QD

    Another to consider is AF Glisten. Its a spray wax/QD so its as easy to use as most QDs and also as its wax based it compatable with colinite etc. My wife actually bought it for me for Christmas (she knows my fetish for detailing[emoji4]) and its leaves a superb level of gloss. Very happy with it so far. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  8. I dont suffer with depression, but I do believe that if you have something in your life that makes you happy, and that you are passionate about then it goes a long way to keeping you away from the darkness that is depression. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  9. Personally I'd move the coils to no.3 and no.4 and see if the fault moves with it. This will confirm its the coils and not another issue like faulty injectors. Just my 2 cents for what its worth.
  10. It does. The car is mapped for 98 so anything less means the car will be pulling timing, and that means less power. It wont do any harm, but it wont be as powerful as it should be. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  11. Awesome. And I dont suppose we know if the TTRS/RS3 calipers are the same as any other porsche(for example) calipers do we ? Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  12. Excuse the dumb ass question, but can you run the these calipers on stock discs ? Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  13. I wouldnt have thought so. I assume youre aware that tge R isnt type approved for a towbar ? You'll probably be uninsured if you have a collision whilst towing. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  14. I run 235 35 19s on 8.5 et44 wheels, with 8mm spacers on the rear, and lowered on Eibach Pro by 15mm. No rubbing except when extreme cornering when loaded up. 99.9% of the time it doesn't rub. Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  15. 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
