    AMG A45

    Despite accelerating hard, I had an early model A45 EASILY overtake me on a motorway slip road recently. Would a stage 1 remap or JB4 provide a similar level of performance to the A45?

    Boot Liners

    Rubber? - Mines made out of plastic.

    Boot Liners

    Same as the one I brought - the only problem was that it was posted folded in two. I still have a faint line after 10 months!

    Dirty Haldex Filter

    Excellent advice, my car is at 6000 miles - looks like a trip to Midland VW is on the cards.

    Not a go faster mod, but are the official VW rubber mats for the R worth the money?
  6. Has anyone heard of rear drive shaft / diff problems on the Golf R? A relative of mine has been quoted £3000+ labour to repair his 52000 mile VW Tiguan and I was concerned this may be an issue with the VW four wheel drive system. Incidentally, the car has been well looked after and regularly serviced.

    Boot Liners

    I`ve got the £21.90 one above - its OK but it came folded and the fold is still slightly visible after 8 months!

    Running In Map

    Can anyone confirm if a rumour I`ve heard about the Golf R having a running in map for the first 1000 miles is true ¬ or not!
  9. Not exciting really, but the plastic boot floor liner I purchased for £17.99 on Ebay has been worth its weight in gold .

    Super unleaded vs Regular ??

    After reading this thread I tried Tesco Momentum - in my view the car definitely runs better than with any 95 octane fuel I've used. For what it's worth, I found the following reply from VW regarding fuel octane. What fuel should I put in my car? Petrol Volkswagen recommends using fuel with a low sulphur content or sulphur-free fuel for petrol engines in order to achieve reduced fuel consumption. For most vehicles standard unleaded is fine (95 RON) but for GTI and 'R we recommend super unleaded (98 RON).
