  1. Good news [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. I'm guessing that on 30k in just a year it does a fair old amount of motorway driving so getting rid of the backbox would imo be horrendous! Each to their own and all that though. I dare say any aftermarket catback (GPFsback doesn't sound great) could be made to fit and should in theory sound just as good [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. There will be options I'm sure but may be expensive as quite new,)I'm some will even include getting rid of the GPF but will cause issues at MOT much like decats and MOTs are getting stricter every year. Apparently the GPF Rs are a bit louder than those with a resonator so not all bad, you could have a look for an aftermarket backbox, not sure if they fit but I don't see why not?

  4. If you are buying for VW you will get a DasWelt warranty so that will be piece of mind, possibly its already had a coolant leak worth checking if it has Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. I've had 2 and both habe leaked, 1st one thermostat housing, 2nd one water pump... Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. I do mine every other Thursday [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. Also as its pretty new where do you park it? In the sea? [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. Basically your car is the newer 7.5 with no resonator as it has GPF filters that filter out emmisions so therefore it would be extremely quiet with a resonator too. I personally wouldnt be messing with the system as if its fitted it's illegal to remove but your choice of course... Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Whatever you decide to stop the sweaty sock smell from your aircon just leave it on all year round [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Looks like you do have a couple of GPFs though [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Last time I checked it was just under £1k for the 2.5 don't forget to factor in a fascia too which are about £140 from VW! I got a deal on my mib2 as I got it from a member, needed a small amount of coding but with some help from him we figured it all out. I do kind of wish I had gone for the 2.5 but there you go...

  12. Yeah I started using Waze but now use Google Maps more as I prefer it, also doesn't use any data if you download the maps to use offline. I travelled all over Europe downloading the maps on the hotel WiFi eqch night [emoji106] I've not had an mib2.5 but I would go for that if you can, quicker, better resolution and bigger screen but an mib2 will not be too shabby Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. The Pro has a HD for maps and music and is also a far better unit, it's a Harmon Kardon unit and has better audio quality imo. I had a non pro in my old R and have a Pro in my current one and the difference is noticeable Both can have android auto as long as they are new enough, you can only play music from your phone via android auto Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. I did a thread at the time I will see if I can find it Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
