  1. Well after just over 10k posts in a couple of years and the odd Moderation to both of the Rs that I have owned, its time to say goodbye 😁 Earlier this year I took a break from here just lurking around but was tempted back due to a small influx of members that were interested in modding and shared a similar outlook which was refreshing. Now though it seems to be little more than a detailing forum in the main, probably due to the only moderator writing essays, anytime anyone asks anything detailing orientated 🤣 A forum of this size and popularity needs a few moderators with different outlooks to share the work imo, the recent Joke thread stuff being a prime example, totally unmoderated. The personal stuff aimed at me just for having an opinion on that and other car related stuff was disappointing but not unexpected, I've only ever spoken from experience on here and its mostly been fun but not lately. It's a shame also that there are no meets ups planned on here, ok lately it would have been difficult but its an area that would have certainly interested me more, I've made lifelong friends on other forums before and have hopefully made a few on here despite the lack of organised meets, I've met more than a few that have bravely allowed me to rip off various bit of trim to fit stuff at my place 🤣 Anyway, thanks to anyone that's ever helped me out with anything and hopefully I have helped a few along the way, anyone that wants to keep in touch feel free to PM, I will check back in a while and answer any messages and leave contact info 👍 The mods certainly aren't stopping with a new sound system going in starting today and some interior changes planned in the new year, I can see myself keeping the R for a year or 2 yet as not bored with the car yet that's for sure 😁 Come On You Spurs 👍
  2. Heard that a few times before.... look forward to the stage 2 build thread [emoji1787] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah when I read the bit about parameters I did wonder, I'm not too worried to be honest as I find the standard system works pretty well and has always warned me of an issue [emoji106] Good to know this system is pretty plug & play Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. Seen the same kit on AliExpress for £100, but says comes without parameters whatever that means? Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Not something you need to worry about, put the money saved towards a new clutch you will need it! Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. The dial in the dash just gets to 90 and stays, never seen mine go past and had the P3 and torque app show 110, 115 sounds like a sensible warning point to me [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. 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
  8. Yep keeping my annual Haldex service reciepts safe too [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. I had a JB4 which I think is probably the best piggyback style one as it monitors a lot of variables, don't know how the DTUK one works and what it plugs in to, but 334 sounds quite restrained, my JB4 made about 350 and that jumped to 375 with a stage 1 ECU map and everything the same on the car Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Not needed for Stage 1 no, I would personally save the expense of that and spend it on a TCU tune and stage 1, plenty of options out there I would recommend Unicorn Stage 1 and atVS Stage 2+ but loads of choices [emoji106] Any decent stage 1 tune will be so much better than the box imo [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. * 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
  12. 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
  13. It looks like a 6.5" screen so maybe not been swapped [emoji848] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. Hard to tell from that, do you have satnav maps on a SD card in the glovebox or not? Maps on a card mean it's not a Pro version, maybe the car came with a non pro and has been upgraded to pro? Could be original unit and there is an issue but if everything is working ok then I wouldn't worry. Just one thing, if I were you I would not do an update to the unit, if it does have CP removed you could wipe the hacked software off and basically brick it which would be expensive to get reversed [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  15. If you scan with something like OBDEleven it gives more info on the faults, mine comes up as CP error of some kind and can't be reset either [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
