    Thanks for confirming. I quite like driving in manual. I hardly ever used it in my last car (E92 330i) but for some reason enjoy it in the R. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So, 1,080 miles in and after following VW’s recommended running in cycle, I decided to give launch control a go on this sunny Sunday afternoon. The sounds as you build revs just before dropping your left foot off the brake are addictive. The acceleration that follows made me feel a little queasy! I wasn’t expecting that. It was immense fun however. Anyone else recall their first launch? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Do you get pops and bangs if in Race mode, DSG-S and then flick the gearstick left into full manual? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    MK's Turmeric

    I love how this colour looks in the sun [emoji295]️ In the recent nice weather I have just been looking at mine from all angles [emoji23] I have zero regrets about picking Turmeric Yellow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I would love to do some mods - with every car I have had I admired owners of the same model who modified. I am too conservative to do it! Partly because the car is still under warranty and partly because I can’t justify the extra money to do it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for your suggestions. I noticed at the weekend following a wash and in direct sunlight, scratches on the wheels. I was a bit annoyed when I saw them, I guess I didn’t expect that so soon. I will have to be more careful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Here are some photos of mine, which I have had for two weeks. Not even 400 miles yet. There is a more detailed thread about my car here.

    Just installed a 'D-Docks' dock for my iPhone this evening. Super simple. Should be something that is OEM/available as a VW accessory as it makes using CarPlay a little less tedious than plugging/unplugging the cable. Check them out: https://www.d-docks.com/ A word of warning, these docks are expensive enough to begin with (there is nothing comparable however) but HMRC hit me with a £23 customs charge. You have been warned!

    Cheers for the comments. I’ll definitely pay more attention when cleaning the wheels next time. I wouldn’t say I rushed but I probably expected more from the C5 coating in terms of ease of cleaning - ie power wash, snow foam, dwell, agitate with brushes and power wash would have me covered. Any tips for removing rust marks on the disc brakes following wash? Obvious is driving and using the brakes but I have always been curious if there was something you could do during washing that would prevent rust spots appearing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Akrapovic MK7.5 R

    Car looks great [emoji106] Really wish they offered Akrapovic for the Estate. Definitely would have ticked that box! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Washed my car today for the first time. First of all, the ceramic coating made it a breeze. Secondly, the Race Glaze filter I bought meant I could rinse and NOT dry with a towel. Absolutely zero water spots [emoji4] Thirdly, I never realised how many different angles there are to the car, I keep finding things I didn’t notice before which was kinda cool. Fourthly, Gloss Black wheels are a bugger to clean! They (like a black car) show up everything! If you miss a section during cleaning, you will notice it once the car and wheels are dry. I had to go back over them with quick detailer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
