    Yes usually because I have 'forgotten' to do something that I didn't want to... [emoji56] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    A lot more than just age to take in to consideration I agree but surely senses and speed of reaction decrease with age though... Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    A woman that can't complain! Rarer than a VW nav that can get the route right [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Auto Hold and Stop/Start

    Are you my lost twin sister [emoji39] Seriously though I can understand why eco & stop/start have to be there for whatever reasons but why anyone would use them is beyond me... neither are much more economical at all. I honestly cant think of anything worse than trying to eek out 40mpg from my R... Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Yes I know you can turn 3d off but why would you? The trouble with any fixed in car system is it is out of date so quickly, at least VW give lifetime free map updates. I doubt they will do much with the poor software, they haven't changed it much in the last 10 years anyway, doesn't seem any better than my RNS510 back then Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    I just dont like stop/start and eco, I'm so glad that I don't have to worry about either anymore! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Install pedal box and disable stop/start transforms daily driving totally Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    October 2018 Nav Update

    Not tried Google maps to be fair but Waze is far from crap! I've used it so many times to get to Wembley and I think it must have taken me maybe 7/8 different routes to avoid traffic and not let me down so far. Just out of interest I had to do a short 16 mile trip earlier, Waze took me on the A2 as normal, VW nav wanted me to go through Chatham town centre through the one way system! Will definitely give Google maps a try, I wonder if it uses that much data with the 3D maps though? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Cost of Stage 1 & Uprated Clutch?

    Yeah guess something you won't really know until you try but by the sounds of it anything other than the stock clutch has got to be an improvement! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Oil top up with different brand?

    Sounds like a good reason to avoid using it then! [emoji1787] Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Maybe a little heavier than standard though for a daily driver? All depends on what you are used to I sipped... Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Strange that after over 40 accidents including 5 fatalities the speed on the road is only now being reduced because some old duffer gets injured... Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    I put some double sided tape behind mine as after I wrapped the front grille it wouldn't stay on properly.... Looks 4D now so I kind of like it looks less lost against the black background Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    MPG (yes this again, but slightly different)

    Yeah I wouldn't get hung up on it, at least it got you to check the oil level though and sort it out before it had the chance to cause any real problems Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    LV= Very Happy

    Just gone for another year with LV, been with them for the last 5 year's and had no issues, even a small bump in my Jag (I say small it was £10k+) didn't cause too much pain... Just over £500 and that is living in the SE close to London and with JB4, pedal box & spacers (so far) JB4 added about £50, spacers & pedal box nothing although I did have to speak to 2 people about the pedal box as at first they said I would have to add it as a steering modification??? Anyway got that sorted after explaining exactly what it was and what it did... For comparison I was paying close to £900 for my heavily modified Jag XFS Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Dazie00 s Lapiz R long term review and Mods !

    Yes I am not a fan of the strip at the to racing car style and I think I would go for perforated leather too and bottom just to make it look a little nicer maybe... Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    No insurance company will be cheap for everyone unfortunately, have you called them and spoken to them? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Lv

    I phoned LV and they were fine with me fitting a Remus, I told them it was a resonated valved catback exhaust, same setup up oem but aftermarket and they were fine, no extra charge. Only thing to remember is if any mid is damaged you would not get it replaced with anything other than stock, although I bet a stock exhaust from VW is more expensive!

    Quite a bit cheaper if you don't go with the CF look, they quoted me £245+vat for something like this Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    October 2018 Nav Update

    They are quite terrible, some people on here defend them and say they are great but they really are not. I use waze and it has never let me down going around London which is the real test. Maybe those that like the VW Nav live in remote areas and only use motorways? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Understanding and using your DSG box.....

    If the engine oil was under 50c it may be significant and the box protecting itself maybe? A reset wouldn't hurt I guess but that's a dealer job I think to do properly Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
