  1. Seen the same kit on AliExpress for £100, but says comes without parameters whatever that means? Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. At the end of the day, just need to drive the car a little or if not be prepared to buy a new battery every couple of years [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. Yep keeping my annual Haldex service reciepts safe too [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. * Note - some Indy places are also [emoji90] I used VW while in warranty and it helped with a few things that maybe I wouldn't have got if I didn't have full VWSH. Now I am out of warranty I may still go to VW for the yearly service next year not sure yet, I have had lots of work done at 2 local Indy garages and not been disappointed so have good options [emoji16] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. I live in a flat with a seperate garage that has no power supply or windows, mine is a daily driver so no issues, surely a short drive once a week is not a problem? Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Easiest way to tell is at cold start the valves open, after a minute or so they should close and the note should change significantly, if it doesn't then the exhaust valves are coded permanently open [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. Yeah you do, although there is a USB device coming soon that will allow wireless hopefully. You can connect wirelessly via software but it's a bit of a pain... Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. I've had most of that trim off before, only new bits will be door cards and a pillars [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Just got a delivery, Audison speakers and amp, sub is on backorder for a couple of weeks but I can get on this weekend and remove the Helix and get everything fitted bar the sub... Doesn't look too tricky [emoji848][emoji849] Should be a nice upgrade, I was always happy with the Helix but also wanted something that little bit better, with this being a DIY job and working well with the existing mib setup I thought I would give it a try [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Exactly why I haven't bothered retrofitting the AID, if it showed googlemaps then I would have been tempted! Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. All depends how you use stuff I guess I just use AndroidAuto and Spotify for music so don't use the buttons much anyway, volume & track etc from the steering wheel Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. I used to use waze but prefer Google maps now, if it's a planned trip I download the maps at home before I leave especially if it's in the middle of nowhere and likely no or poor signal [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. All depends how you fine the DSG box and of course how you use it, if you don't have an issue with how the box works in auto and don't see a need for full manual control then I don't see a need for it, but honestly for me it's superb [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. Carplay is Apple AppConnect via your phone, CarNet is a VW connection software that could be fantastic but in reality is quite pants... Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  15. The main thing especially on the 6 speed DQ250 is the shift points. I found that the box raced through the gears to get to 6th in D mode, and when you swapped to S mode the slightest lift of your right foot and it would change down. Yes you can use the paddles or better still manual mode but sometimes you just want to leave it to its thing. It also speeds up the changes, increases the amount of torque that the box can handle and gives you true manual mode ie won't change up for you at any point in manual. If you are still running your JB4 it compliments that really well, I still had my JB4 whe
