  1. Nice one, glad you’re enjoying it! I saw a white one up close recently with all the black styling kit on it and it looked awesome. Very tempted to look at one next having had a couple of Merc hire cars recently. Lovely cabins to sit in. Got a while yet. My PCH ends in Feb 2020, so will start thinking about what’s next at the end of summer, if it ever arrives! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. How are you liking the A35 now Rob, now you’ve had it a bit longer?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Anyone lowered and spaced their 18” Cadiz? Just wondering what set-up you went with Spring wise and Spacer size. Will I need longer Wheel Bolts/Nuts if I space around 8mm front 10/11/12 on the Rear? I’m guessing so. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Try putting a finger on the trim behind the rear view mirror. The bit up against the windscreen and see if it stops with a bit of light pressure. My brand new 7.5 developed a buzzy rattle there after a few months. They changed the trim part and no problems since! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Glad I asked that question now as it seems I can rid myself of the nightmare that is dragging the power washer unit around the car with me by buying a long hose between power washer and lance..??!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. What Pressure rating power washers do you all use? Good deal on a 120 bar Nilfisk on Amazon at the moment. I have an old Karcher at the moment maybe 110 bar and it feels well under powered. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. What’s this on my Cadiz alloy? Is this Whiteworm I’ve heard people mention? There are quite a few spots of this on this wheel. None on the others. Can I do a warranty claim for it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Check the trim around the back of rear view mirror. I’ve had that issue and it sounded like passenger side, then centre air vents, etc. If you put your finger on it when rattling/buzzing occurs you’ll soon know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Put the JB1 and TT Pipe back on after 1st service and having received my bottom connector loom from the [email protected] Great seeing the difference the JB1 makes again having driven a few weeks without it. Having played with the clips on Rob’s supplies loom I discovered that best way to get bottom connector off is to push the connector together a bit whilst pushing on the clip release mechanism. Was like taking sweets off a child..!! Polar opposite of when I took the JB1 off and was a sweaty infuriated mess as couldn’t get the fecking thing off!! [emoji23] Gave the hearse its first 2BM wash for months too, VP Bilberry on the wheels, BH SnowFoam, Meguiars Gold Class shampoo, Gyeon Silk Drier, then just tried some some free sample TJ’s Quick Detailer. Seemed to give a lovely gloss, even on my Appliance White. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Tested this today. Just turn your radio volume down, the Nav instructions still play, they have a separate volume setting that you can adjust whilst the directions are actually being spoken or from the Announce menu item that you see on the Nav screen when you move your hands towards it.

  11. 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?
  12. 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???
  13. The million dollar question...!!! What on earth can draw you away from this lovely forum and bunch of people @Rob2k68...????
  14. 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
  15. 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:
