  1. Echo all the good things said above, and I'm welling up here!! 😭😭 Good luck guys - a car is more than just a car when you appreciate them as much as many of us do, and even if only via a forum a camaraderie develops and......jeez i'M WELLING UP AGAIN!! 😂😂 @Booth11 - Do you offer counseling sessions for us left feeling abandoned?
  2. I'm currently driving with Pedal Box still on, but JB1 off since recent Service. Not had time to get it back on yet. Not too shabby feeling without the JB1, but def lacks the punch! @Jon R306 Another one leaving the fold???
  3. The million dollar question...!!! What on earth can draw you away from this lovely forum and bunch of people @Rob2k68...????
  4. I’m coming round to this conclusion too, same pipe. I don’t think it matters which pipe it is, unless you try compare to the BCS one that has the anti drone thing on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. So whilst sitting in my local dealership having my 1st Service done on the R Hearse I spotted the following book on the coffee area coffee table, and whilst I only read a few bits of it, it was an amazing record of the history of the Golf, including a few incarnations of it I'd never heard of - like 650ps one...!! Anyway, I took a few pics from some pages that stood out for me. Those of you who have a long history with Golf's might fancy trying to get a copy:
  6. Welcome to the forum Frank! We should have a North n South meet before we are unable to cross the border without visas, insurance documents, licence amendments and whatever other paraphernalia we’ll end up with due to this Brexit ballix..!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Check its not the trim cover behind the rear view mirror. I had that rattling/buzzing away and swore the noise was coming more from the dash area. If you get the rattle going, just press on the trim behind the mirror and see if it stops. Worth a try.
  8. When is it actually due to be available to order? Don’t like the look of that at all. Might have to start saving for an S4 Avant! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Double SnowFoam/Rinse and some VP Bilberry on the wheels. Got rid of the worst of the grime. Proper 2BM soon! [emoji3475] [emoji3476] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks greg [email protected], pretty happy that what I was looking at was actually part of the strut/suspension. Phew! Would have been mightily embarrassed to only have discovered transport pucks 12 months in! [emoji1] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. [emoji3062][emoji3062] Think I’m feelin happy at £149 now, it’s still a lot IMO for what must be under 1 hours work. Cheap in the grand scheme of things I suppose. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I won’t be buying an M4 anytime soon then!! Torque the sump plug.......? To make sure it’s tight enough or not over tightened? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. First time servicing a new car for years having had a company car and not knowing or paying attention to servicing bills. What do you reckon a 1st service on an M car is?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. How much have folks been paying for a VW Dealer 1st Service on their R’s?? Been quoted £149. Sounds a lot for an oil change, and that was apparently discounted a little (apparently!) having got the car through them. Cheers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. [emoji3166][emoji3166] How does that work then? Is that extending both ends of the bottom connector up, so can clip both connectors of the JB loom in, and then on removal the 2 extended bits just clip together, thus simulating the originals down the bottom of the radiator?? Sounds great! Anyone fancy making me one for beer tokens? [emoji482] [emoji482] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
