    LV= Very Happy

    LV = Not So Happy..!! Just done an online quote. 46, 9 yrs NCD, 1 accident 3 years ago but not at fault, Northern Ireland postcode (think this is what killed the quote!!). £650. With no mods declared at that stage. Might try multi car policy with wife’s car, but can’t see it improving things much. Current Admiral policy is a multi car one and is just shy of £400 for the R and about £200 or so for an iX35. Both of us to drive both. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What did you do to your R today?

    Oh dear! How bad a nasty surprise is it? 3 points and fixed penalty or are speeding offences now means tested?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    JB1 in VW Golf R MK7

    Certainly adds more power! Must give a good 50bhp extra! Got one on my 7.5 Estate and it’s awesome!! I think (hope) they are well tried and tested and lots of members on here have them, or the newer JB4 and I’ve not heard any bad press about them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    [emoji33][emoji33] Had something similar recently but I was prob doing nearly 90 in a 60 thanks to the JB1 and overtaking a couple lorries!! Thankfully was either just too far away or luckily was blocked from view by oncoming lorries and buses! Fingers crossed! [emoji1696] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Batch’s Tornado Red 7.5R Wagon

    Loving the look and Build of your car here mate. Looks awesome. Out of interest, what if anything are you going to remove when you send it in for 1st Year Service?? Understand it’s mainly and Oil change and an inspection, but they’d pick up on your Air Intake stuff do you think? You’ve been a whole load more adventurous with your PCH than I have with mine. I went with a JB1, TT Intake and new Panel Filter, and have had a Res Delete done, which some days I love and other days I hate. What’s does a Dogbone mount offer? Is it something for tightening up the Gearbox joint or something I’ve heard S4 owners doing? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What detailing have you done today?

    Rubbed my Pipe more vigorous than ever before! (all 4 of them). They were quite bad and the black stuff felt baked hard on. Some intense rubbing with Autosol brought them up nice and shiny again. Think there is some Pitting or permanent marks on the bottom lip of the pipe ends as they’re ever so slightly rough and you can see blemishes on them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Working under car.

    If I use my Trolley Jack (and Axle Stands), should I put something on top of the Jack to protect the Sill a bit? A rubber puck or something?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Axle stands will be used as well then. Better than a trip to A&E..!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Working under car.

    What are they like for driving up on to? I’d be afraid of going too far and coming off them! [emoji32] I need to get under the front of mine shortly to remove the JB1. Was just going to use a jack at one side, get under and get the tray off to access the bottom connector. Bad idea?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What did you do to your R today?

    Tightened up the air box end clamp on my TT Pipe after discovering it nearly hanging off today when I checked the oil..!!! Gave it a dam good tighten! The pipe seems to only just make it on to the air box outlet and needs a good push on the pipe from near the turbo inlet to get enough intake pipe over the air box. Sitting naturally on its own it almost short of it. Is that normal?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Should I or not.......

    Just SnowFoam and Rinse and Repeat. Done that last couple of times due to weather/time and it gets rid of the worst. Needs a proper 2BM next wash tho now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Happy New Year..!!

    Happy New Year to all of you out there and all of your families. Been on the forum just shy of a year now and it’s a great place for all things R and car maintenance in general, as well as some general banter about things like Manual v DSG, Hatch v Estate etc, etc. Here’s to another year of DSG Estate being the best place to be!!
